The last thing you want to think of after coming home after a Monday is cooking right? Unfortunately this feeling will never cease to exist. The dreaded feeling of a daunting week ahead is one we know all too well. The only way we can ensure that we’ll eat right and not grab the nearest ‘convenient’ food that we may regret later is to prepare the week’s meals ahead of time. I want weeknight meal ideas to be easy. And if you have kids, trust me it makes life so much easier and assures that you are getting some great nutrtion in. So whether you are single, a couple or have a big family these great meals can benefit you.
Here, we’ve rounded up 21 of our favorite dinners. You can make every single one of them in advance (double up if necessary) or in a slow cooker — and have them ready for you, then eat them all week long.

You can make the mushroom/kale sauce ahead of time, heat it up and add the pasta and you’re good to go. Add a salad and you have an instant delicious dinner!
