Have you considered setting up a weekly meal plan? It’s a real game-changer! Not only does it save you time and money, but it also takes the stress out of figuring out what’s for dinner. Plus, it’s a great way to ensure your family gets balanced, nutritious meals all week.

Why not stick the plan on the fridge? That way, everyone knows what delicious dishes are coming up!

This week, we’ve got some exciting meals lined up: pasta dishes, soup, something Asian-inspired, and a tasty blueberry treat to top it all off!

Weekly meal plan for May 13, 2024 pizza sloppy joes, chicken burrito bowls, zuppa toscana, chinese honey garlic chicken, baked spaghetti, and blueberry cheesecake cookies.

We share a new meal plan weekly, so check back each week. I will post the plan each Thursday before the following week’s menu which starts on Monday. This will give you plenty of time to shop and prep.

I love to add fruit and veggies to each dinner. Add whatever you have on hand, and you know your family will eat.

This week’s tips for success

  • For the burrito bowl, most of the ingredients are quickly pulled together. The chicken is really the only thing that requires a little bit of time to cook other than the rice(make a little extra rice and put it aside for Thursday’s meal. This is a great one to meal prep over the weekend if you are short on time that evening. Make the pico and the corn salsa on Sunday, and use a boil-in-the-bag rice to keep it really simple that evening.
  • Leftover Repurpose Tip: Put leftover burrito bowl ingredients in a tortilla shell for tacos or as a burrito for lunch during the week.
  • Soups are a great, easy meal, and it’s all about putting it all in one pot and letting it cook while you unwind from the day or helping the kiddos with homework or running to after-school activities. This can also be made in the slow cooker. And don’t forget soups are always a great take-along for lunch. Put it in a thermos or warm this up in the microwave for a hot lunch.
  • The Ultimate Spaghetti hits the spot for cheesy, saucy comfort food. It has that “gather round the table” feel that brings everyone together to catch up and make those lasting memories. The dish takes a little time but uses some shortcuts, so you are not in the kitchen all day. You can put this together before heading off to church and pop it in the oven when you get home. This dish is a meal in itself, but you can pair it with a quick and simple salad or side dish like air fryer green beans.
