Cooking for two can sometimes be boring, but not with these easy meal plans for two that are featured as part of our Weekly Meal Plan. These recipes will help you plan dinner for just the two of you this week. There are free printable menus, grocery list and freezer list available to help make things even easier. Let's take a look at this week's set of recipes.
Even though our son and daughter are no longer living at home, I still find myself cooking the same amount of food for dinner some nights. A lot of leftovers are used for lunches for my husband. Sometimes food does go to waste.
Which is why I'm enjoying the meal planning ideas for two recipes that you all have requested! Quite a few of you have replied to either comments on the blog or through email asking for more easy meal plans for two like the one I'm sharing today.
Meal Planning for Two
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. This is something we do at least once a week or every 10 days.
Here are some recipes that are perfect to serve for just two people!
- Monday - 30 Minute Caprese Chicken
- Tuesday - Lemon Pepper Garlic Shrimp
- Wednesday - Lasagna for Two
- Thursday - Honey Garlic Chicken
- Friday - Shepherd's Pie for Two
- Saturday - French Bread Pizza
- Sunday - Cornflake Chicken
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.
