At the end of the day, the last thing I want to do is think about cooking dinner. Is that you too? I want to get dinner on the table fast, but I also want it to be healthy for my family. This week I'm featuring 30 minute meal plans as part of our Weekly Meal Plan. I hope you use these recipes to inspire your meal planning and get dinner on the table for your family without spending a ton of time in the kitchen.
Don't forget there are printable menus available to help inspire your meal planning this week as well as a few helpful tips for 10 Essentials Pantry Items and Freezer Meal Planning Tips.
Meal Planning Categories
This is just an example of how I like to meal plan. You could also incorporate a “leftover meal” or even “clean out the refrigerator” night.
Try to use what you have in your pantry and freezer to plan meals. It helps to keep a list so you know exactly what you have on hand.
- Monday - Meatless, Vegetarian or even Leftovers from the weekend.
- Tuesday - Taco Tuesday or Mexican Recipe
- Wednesday - Chicken, Beef or Fish
- Thursday - Pasta or Italian Night
- Friday - Sandwiches and Soup
- Saturday - Pizza or Eat Out, Order In
- Sunday - Comfort Food Meal
All of the recipes featured this week are 30 minute meal plans. Which is perfect for busy days when you think you don't have enough time to cook dinner.
- Monday - Lentils and Rice - Italian Style! - from Christina's Cucina
- Tuesday - Three Bean Enchilada Casserole - from Fake Ginger
- Wednesday - Turkey and Cheese Crescents - from Mess for Less
- Thursday - 3 Ingredient Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe - from No Frills Kitchen
- Friday - Broccoli Cheese Soup - Panera Bread Copycat Recipe
- Saturday - Naan Pizza - from Healthy Family Project
- Sunday - Chicken with Gravy
Now, pick a side dish to serve with the recipes listed above. Side dishes should include potatoes or rice along with one or two veggies. A tossed salad with homemade ranch salad dressing is always nice too.
