Over 30 Quarantine Dinner Ideas



Day #2345345 of cooking quarantine diner for the family and I am in a major rut. So I sat down and spent a solid hour browsing Pinterest and my cookbooks for ideas over the weekend and I came up with a big list of meals I can make that will feed my family. I also asked on Instagram to hear about what you guys are making and I’ve included all your ideas, finding recipe links when possible! I hope this serves as a resource for you during these challenging times!
