Planning dinner for your family for an entire week can be hard! What should we eat for dinner? What do I need to buy at the store? Let me answer both of those questions with my free weekly meal plan including a printable grocery list (and bonus leftover re-do ideas)!
FAMILY MEAL PLAN
Your family needs to eat, and the job of feeding them lands squarely on your shoulders.
The key to making this job easy is MEAL PLANNING!
Plan all your meals for the week, write out your grocery list, and then head to the store to buy the groceries. Sounds easy enough, but I think a lot of us just end up at the grocery store buying the same things week after week, and then we get home and say “I have nothing to cook for dinner!”
Prevent this from happening now! Sign up for the Mom’s Dinner Newsletter and have my Weekly Menu Plan and Printable Grocery List delivered to your email every Friday morning. Cross off the groceries you already have in your kitchen and head to the store completely prepared!
WEEKLY MEAL PLAN #9
I provide 4 delicious and easy dinners, with recipes, that you can make for your family this week. You simply add three more meals and your 7 day family meal plan is done. Here are three dinner categories I recommend adding to your plan :
- One night out.
- A leftover night (leftover re-do ideas provided below)
- Kids Choice night (think pizza, chicken fingers, tacos, spaghetti, or mac n’ cheese)
I have other meal plans too, if this one isn’t your jam!
5 Minute Tomato Basil Pantry Soup with Garlic Croutons
I bet you have a night that is super hectic with kids activities, homework, meetings and running carpool!? Save this dinner for that night. It only takes 5 MINUTES to make this Tomato Basil Soup with Garlic Croutons.
Add a couple grilled cheese sandwiches and everyone is fed and happy in under 20 minutes!
Veggie Enchiladas with Chili Lime Crema
You know I had to include the new recipe for Veggie Enchiladas with Chili Lime Crema. You are going to love this recipe, especially the crema! Bonus- this recipe is pretty healthy.
Serve these enchiladas with Mexican rice or cilantro lime rice and chips with salsa. And you can’t go wrong with Cranberry Ginger Margaritas, if you need a cocktail.
