Meal planning and prepping tips
If you're new here...
Every week, I share a free meal plan for you to use the following week. You'll have seven main dish recipes, along with a few extras and of course dessert.
Typically the weekly meal plans are named by number of the week and date. For example, if the plan is for the first week of January, I'll name it Weekly Meal Plan 1 - Jan 3-9. Next year the plans will be updated for the corresponding dates and tasty new recipes!
Don't forget - if you have a busy day and plan on eating out, just drop a day off the menu and adjust the meal plan to fit YOUR busy life!
Here are some shortcuts and tips for this week's menu!
- Leftovers of the lasagna soup freeze great!
- For the Nicoise Salad boil the potatoes and green beans on Sunday and refrigerate. That way they will be nice & cold on Monday night for dinner!
- Teriyaki Chicken makes a great sandwich for lunch - you may consider doubling that recipe!
- Goulash is always super yummy and another meal that even tastes better the next day!
- Cupcakes freeze great! Just freeze individually overnight, then wrap well to freeze up to three months.
Weekly Meal Plan 16
I'm including some of my favorite Easter recipes. However if you don't celebrate Easter then there is another option as well.
Hip-pity hop, who's hungry for a great Easter menu?!!! Glazed Ham, is lovely! Serve this with Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole, Pan Fried Vegetables with an Easter Dirt Cake for dessert - yum!
If brunch is more your thing - this Raspberry Strata is what to serve! A Mexican Fruit Salad would be amazing and Cracker Barrel Cheesy Potatoes along with crispy bacon. Perfect!
Just like a serving of your favorite casserole this Lasagna Soup Recipe is meaty, cheesy and delicious!
Leftovers taste even better on day two!
Chicken Teriyaki Bowl
Sharon says - "The best. I will never buy takeout again😋😋"
That was the latest feedback from a reader for this Grilled Chicken Teriyaki Bowl! It's excellent!
Shrimp Nicoise Salad
Shrimp Nicoise Salad is a salad that eats likes a meal! If you aren't a fan of shrimp, then substitute with rotisserie chicken or leftover teriyaki chicken. What a fabulous meal!
Beef Tips and Gravy
Tender beef with a rich, delicious brown gravy! Beef Tips and Gravy is a cinch to make in either your Instant Pot or Crockpot. There are directions for both! Make this yummy Focaccia Bread to serve alongside!
Poppy Seed Casserole
Easy to make this Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole is sure to be a hit! Serve with steamed green beans or roasted Brussels sprouts for an easy meal!
My Grandma used to make Homemade Goulash for us all the time. It's easy, delicious and a great way to stretch a buck. Leftovers last 3-4 four days AND it freezes great!
Honey Sriracha Chicken
Slow Cooker Honey Sriracha Chicken - you're going to love this sweet, spicy and dish - steam or roast broccoli and serve over rice or egg noodles - delicious!
Pink Lemonade Cupcakes
Homemade Pink Lemonade Cupcakes are moist, tender - sweet and lemony! Homemade from start to finish, these are a lovely treat!
