I'm in a meal rut...it seems I cook the same things day in and day out.

Does anyone have some favorite dinner suggestions?

Me too. My son is getting increasingly more picky and I would love to revamp our meal choices. He is allergic to most fruits and veggies, recently has decided he doesn't like any cheese but parmesan, and has stopped eating bread. We generally eat hamburgers, turkey burgers, hot dogs, pasta, potatoes (usually mashed with milk, butter, sour cream, cheddar cheese and baked in a casserole dish), rice, corn, cauliflower, lettuce. He was eating black forest ham and roast turkey but not so much anymore. Occasionally he'll eat eggs. Still eats pizza.
What are your typical meals?

When in doubt, there's always spaghetti!

Maybe if we all traded "ruts" life would be exciting!
My rut is roast pork tenderlion, steamed brocolli and mashed potatoes/yams.
DS also eats a lot of canned green beans (wont eat fresh), some corn, califlower, carrots (raw only).
He likes roast beef too. And smoked salmon.
Tonight I am having Jeaneo turkey Kielbasa - I hope it's the one that I remember as being good.
He eats lots of yougurt - plain, whole milk - mixed with berries or applesauce.
Here's a good dinner...
Turkey enchilada casserole is yummy - brown the turkey (1#), add a cup of salsa and a cup of diced tomatoes, a package of frozen spinach thawed, a small can of mushrooms and a package of cream cheese, cumin to taste - mix up - layer tortillas and mixture like lasagna ending with a tortilla and then another cup of salsa and the rest of the can of diced tomatoes - bake 20 mins at 350 - top with a couple cups of shredded cheese - finish until melted.
I usually freeze half of this for a quick dinner at another time.
also Roast Chicken is easy - put a (stabed with a knife a few times) lemon and a head of garlic in the cavity - season whole chicken with salt and pepper - roast until done. Makes several meals.
I find that brining chicken breast before baking makes them juicier and ds will eat them up that way.

I made pulled pork the other night and my family loved it.
Brown a sirloin pork roast on both sides in a little bit of olive oil. Then add a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce and some water to thin it out so it won't burn and simmer for about 1-2 hours. You can use a can of beer instead of the water but I didn't. When you are ready to serve, just shred the pork and put on your favorite buns. It was sooo good, my finicky DS at 3 of them.
