dinner


Hello! I was talking with my sisters (do you use Marco Polo??) and one of the topics we frequently discuss is: what’s for dinner?? Some share beautiful, gourmet recipes and another time a sister shared that Walmart french toast sticks are the best things ever. Love my sisters! I realized I love to see what people are having for dinner to get new ideas because we definitely get stuck in a rut around here.  So, I thought I’d share my 2 week meal plan with links to the recipes and perhaps that would be helpful to you?


I make a plan but rarely stick exactly to it. Because sometimes I don’t feel like enchiladas or the night ends up being crazy busy and cereal it is!  But it’s nice to have the ingredients on hand and ideas right there.


I love the Food Nanny method (it’s free and she has great recipes and ideas too!) as a place to begin – where you have a theme each night to help you plan. We usually go with:


Monday: Meatless/leftovers

Tuesday: Mexican

Wednesday: Soup

Thursday: Italian

Friday--Date Night: Easy Peasy for the kids like Costco freezer what’s on rebate this month

Saturday: Pizza!

Sunday: Family Favorites


dinner plan


I used to scribble it down on a ruled sheet of school paper (totally works!) but have recently moved to keeping it on a Google Doc to easily copy, save, and move.


Monday: Alfredo / Caesar Salad / Bread  – For the alfredo I just use: 1 cup cream, 1 stick butter, 1 cup parmesan – easy to remember and to whisk together and add garlic to taste.


Tuesday: Pepperoncini Sandwiches (I use pork roast, the ones that come in a 4 pack at Costco) and Favorite Salad


Wednesday: Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup (I need to post my recipe, this is an easy alternative) and Blueberry Muffins


Thursday: Instant Pot Tikka Masala 


Friday: Date Night! Chicken Tenders


Saturday: Pizza


Sunday: Favorite Pot Roast



******


Monday: Italian Shells


Tuesday: White Chicken Enchiladas


Wednesday: Tortellini Soup


Thursday: Upside Down Pizza and Green Beans


Friday: Pizza


Saturday: Date Night: Grilled Cheese


Sunday: Lemon Chicken


Happy Meal Planning – I hope this helps -- if you have some links to your favorites, let us know in the comments!
