30 days of 30 meals

Some people say that if you know how to make 30 things then you can make it through the month but I don't usually work under that idea but I know that certain things make it on the menu more when it is cold and others when it is hot outside. I started to work on a list of things that I cook so that I could see if I had enough meals to make it through the month without repeating the same thing.  This list isn't in neat alphabetical order or anything but the order that things came to mind... tacos being the first favorite in this house and then following from there.  We could eat spaghetti and tacos every week so we never need something different every day.  I was surprised to get as far as I did without starting my list of marinated chicken (starting at 21) which are usually served with white rice, brown rice, herb rice, whole wheat cous cous, pasta, homemade over fries, mac and cheese, and other carbs.  We eat them plain or in a wrap/tortilla or on a salad depending on the season.
1. Tacos (shredded chicken or ground beef)
2. Enchiladas (shredded chicken or ground beef)
3. Sloppy Joes
4. Spaghetti and Meatballs (also replaced with other pastas)
5. Parmesan Spaghetti with Edamame or Zucchini
6. Meatball Sliders
7. Chicken and Rice Casserole
8. Shake and Bake Chicken (with mac and cheese or stuffing)
9. Chicken Patty Wraps (from the freezer like Tyson's)
10. Chicken Parmesan with spaghetti (made with either chicken patties or homemade)
11. Buffalo chicken sliders (shredded chicken)
12. BBQ chicken sliders (shredded chicken)
13. Chicken Tortilla Soup
14. Homemade Pizza
15. Rosemary Chicken and Egg Noodles (my cousin's favorite)
16. Rosemary Chicken and Potatoes
17. Garlic Lime Chicken Fajitas
18. Spicy Fajitas
19. Asian stir fry (bread chicken cubes in corn starch and mix in sauce)
20. Fried Rice
21. Sesame Ginger Chicken
22. Zesty Italian Chicken
23. Herb and Garlic Chicken
24. Spiedie Chicken (http://www.spiedies.com/) an upstate NY marinate that is super yummy
25. SW Spiedie Chicken
26. BBQ Spiedie Chicken
27. Raspberry Chicken
28. Sundried Tomato Chicken
29. Buffalo Chicken
30. Caribbean Jerk Chicken
31. Balsamic Chicken

Hope that this gives you some ideas of things that you can do without having the same food night after night :)
