For the last 20 years or so, my meal planning decision have revolved around the tastes and textures the kids like. Although there were definitely times where I didn’t specifically cater to their preferences, by and large, I tried to stick with dinner ideas that I knew at least one of the kids would enjoy.

Now that we are getting ready to send our youngest to college, we will be free to try different recipes and break away from some of the standards we have been sticking to for the last few years. Wheeeee! So to get a good head start, I asked a bunch of my blogger friends to send me their very best ideas for easy dinners for two. And they delivered!
