Weekly Meal Plan #1

~This post contains affiliate links

Hello everyone! Welcome to our first week of meal plans. We are SO excited to be sharing with you some delicious meals.

One of the top questions that I get asked in my household is, “what’s for dinner?” Most days I just answer, “I don’t know”. Sometimes I want to try new things, but I seem to never have the time to look up the recipes! My other problem is actually sitting down and deciding what to actually make. If you are anything like me then you will LOVE this weekly meal plan! It takes all the guesswork out of the age-old question, “Mom, What’s for dinner?”   So rather than sitting there wondering what’s for dinner, you can pop into the kitchen to make a simple and delicious meal from Weekly Meal Plan #1.

So when your kids (or husband) asks you, “What is for dinner this week? You can tell them that they can look forward to things like Crockpot Chicken and Gravy, Shrimp Boil Foil Packets and for a tasty treat, Chubby Hubby Clusters.

Could there really be anything better on a cold winter’s day than to have a nice hot dinner? This Crock Pot Chicken and Gravy from the Country Cook will leave you feeling warm and toasty on the inside. Did I mention it’s a so you can just throw everything together in the morning and not worry about it the rest of the day? That is what we call a big WIN!

Ah, tacos. Delicious, tasty, yummy tacos. Who doesn’t love a good taco? But you know what the problem with tacos are? They can kind of get boring after a while… I know, I said it okay! If you love tacos but are tired of the same old thing then try out these Crack Chicken Tacos from Mom Dot. They give you a little bit of spice to the normal taco! A must-try taco, in my opinion!

*Side dish-

A great side dish for those yummy Chicken Crack Tacos is this Mexican Street Corn Salad from Live Eat Learn! Packed with plenty of different veggies, this healthy side dish is a perfect pair with tacos or any other Mexican food!

Looking for a twist on the classic slider? These Grilled Pork Banh Mi Sliders from Brooklyn Supper are a great Vietnamese take on a classic American dish. Complete with optional directions on how to make your own Crusty French Bread Slider rolls, this dinner will surely pull out all the stops for friends and family.

When I hear the words Sunday dinner four things come to my mind: roast, carrots, potatoes, and family. It seemed like almost every Sunday we had a roast dinner growing up and to be honest, why not, it’s delicious! Sunday dinners are a great way to gather together as a family and have a scrumptious meal before the craziness of the week starts back up again. So pop open some sparkling cider and enjoy this great meal from Recipe This! 

Dessert after Sunday dinner is almost a must-have, right? If you’re looking for that special after dinner treat that you don’t have to bake, definitely look to this salty and sweet treat! And the best news is, it takes less than 20 minutes to make. Try these delicious Chubby Hubby Clusters from Six Sisters Stuff. If that still didn’t convince you to try these then just look at the name. How can you go wrong with a dessert called Chubby Hubby?!
