We want you to cook six nights a week for the next four weeks for our #24daysofdinner challenge, but we get it -- life is busy, especially with work, school and family commitments. So we put together a road map for you with six simple recipes that everyone in the family will gobble up!

Chicken Pot Pie with Apples and Leeks

Storebought biscuit dough and rotisserie chicken make this a fast and easy weeknight meal.

White Chicken Chili

This quick-cooking, nutrient-dense chili cooks up in one pot for less dishes.

Potato-Parsnip Soup with Grilled Cheese and Pears

What's better than an easy and super-nutritious soup paired with grilled cheese?

Beef and Eggplant Ragu with Rigatoni

Nothing says, "You're finally home after a long day," like a meaty eggplant ragu with comforting pasta.

Pulled Chicken and Black Bean Nacho Casserole

Nachos for dinner? When they have beans, chicken and loads of healthy veggies, yes please!

Cubano-Style Monte Cristo

Here's a great opportunity to make use of leftover ham, (though we won't tell anyone if you use deli ham). The sweet and tangy flavor of this sandwich will win over everyone in the family.

Every time you make a meal for this challenge, take a photo of it and use the hashtag #24DaysofDinner on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.
