Does your family sit down to eat dinner together? During the winter months, you and your family can sit around the dinner table and catch up on the day’s happenings. Since you and your family will be sharing a meal together, it’s important that the meal is nutritious and tasty. Here are some winter meal ideas you can use to keep everyone in the family warm around the table.
Winter Dinner Ideas
Chili is a great meal because you can throw so many ingredients into it and it still tastes delicious. You can experiment with different beans and added ingredients such as meat or veggies. You can make it a little bit spicy for those family members that like it hot or you can cool it off with a little sour cream or cheese added in. No matter how you choose to make this meal, your family will love eating it together at the end of the day.
Beef stew is another meal that is perfect for a cold, winter evening. If you have a busy day planned, you can throw all of the ingredients for beef stew in the Crockpot and let it slow cook all day long. Your beef stew is then ready at the end of the day and you’ll have time to sit and eat with your family. To make your meal complete, you can serve your beef stew with slices of homemade bread on the side.

Slow-cooked Cranberry Chicken
The slow cooker is one of the best dinner inventions for the busy person. So many different meals can be thrown in the Crockpot at the start of the day, and the meal practically cooks itself throughout the day. You can add some chicken and chicken stock to a Crockpot to cook a moist chicken meal. Add some flavor by combining cranberries and some brown sugar into the mix. Your chicken will soak up all of those flavors, making it a delicious dinner when it finally comes out of the Crockpot.
Ham & Sweet Potatoes
This meal can be cooked in many different ways, but the best is in a slow roaster. Put your ham into the roaster with some liquid and the potatoes and allow it to cook on low for a few hours. All of the juices will work their way into your meal, making it a delicious combination. You can also add other vegetables such as mushrooms or carrots to the mix.
Chicken Pot Pie
Chicken pot pie is a very hearty meal and can keep you warm during the cold, winter days. The great thing about chicken pot pie is you can add all different sorts of ingredients to the inside. Add some vegetables and even noodles to your chicken mix and then cook it inside of a crust. You can cook smaller individual pot pies for each member in the family or you can turn your pot pie into a casserole dish the whole family can enjoy.
