What’s For Dinner? Weekly Meal Plan

Good Morning! I hope everyone is having a great weekend. It is time to start planning the week ahead. Today I am sharing our weekly meal plan. I’ve got a quick and easy main dish and side for every single night of the week. I am also sharing a delicious dessert.

All of the recipes will easily feed a family of four. Many of the recipes can be made in advance and refrigerated or frozen for later. I love to make a few recipes on Sunday for super easy meals during the week.

Click on the photos and recipe titles below to get the recipes. I hope you enjoy the recipes you try this week!!


Ham & Cheese Slab Pie - delicious hot ham and cheese puff pastry sandwiches. Only a few simple ingredients - ham, swiss cheese, cream cheese, honey mustard and puff pastry. Brush pies with an egg wash to get a nice golden color. We love these for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. Can make in advance and freeze unbaked for later! A great alternative to plain ham and cheese sandwiches! #puffpastry #ham #cheese #freezermeal #sandwich #bakedsandwich #slabpie

  1. Love the fact you include ingredients for different numbers of people. Sometimes I cook for 2. Other times for 4 or more up to 19 so it’s much appreciated.

  2. I live your site! My 8 year old daughter loves the baking. We want to ask a question. Is there, by chance, to show maybe once a month, a “Desserts Plan”. Showing cakes, jello desserts, brittles, cupcakes, cakes, or what ever the month, to have one week or the last week, of nothing but desserts. January- New Years desserts, February- chocolate, March- St Patty or green, April- Easter, May-Cinco De Mayo, Mothers Day, Memorial Day, June- Flag Day, Juneteenth, Father’s Day, July- 4th of July, August- Thank Goodness They are back at school!, September- Labor Day, October-Halloween, November-Dont Forget to Vote, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, December- Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanza, and back at New Years Again! JUST ONCE A WEEK A MONTH!!! My daughter loves to see the cakes and cupcakes rise. Decorating is her favorite. Lol Just think about it.
