A weekly menu plan has become an important part of my week. I don’t know how your life looks, but mine looks something like the tasmanian devil from the bugs bunny cartoon. Our schedules are all over the place, they are rarely the same two days in a row and time is in short supply. Sound like you? Oh good, let me tell you a secret… making a weekly menu plan can really save your sanity.
Here’s how it works: Every Friday morning, a new menu plan will be delivered to your email. It consists of 5 dinner options, plus 2 extras. Those two extras could be side dishes, dessert, drinks, etc. The Dinner Divas weekly menu plan features quick and easy recipes. Getting the weekly menu delivered to your inbox on Friday morning gives you the chance to make your shopping list and get organized for the week ahead.
Make sure you are subscribed so you never miss a recipe! I hope this weekly menu plan provides inspiration and makes life a little easier… one meal at a time.
Weekly Menu Plan 93
We are kicking off the week with Pastry Chef Online’s Instant Pot Charro Beans. These tasty beans would be good on their own or tucked into some tacos! If you don’t own an Instant Pot, I highly recommend one. You can do so many things with it and it’s a major time saver.
Next up on the weekly menu plan is The Speckled Palate’s Shrimp and Grits. As a northerner, I didn’t grow up eating this. I’ve had it a few times since moving south and I must say, I’m a fan. And since she’s a southerner from birth and has always lived in the south, I trust this recipe.
The midweek meal is French Onion Soup from My Imperfect Kitchen. I really, really love French onion soup. It’s the gooey, melted cheese on top that really does it for me. Plus, the cute little crocks that it’s served in, I’m a sucker for cute dishes. Just look at that cheese toast on top. Swoon!
January is soup weather for me. I have been feeling a little worn out and that’s usually when I get sick. In order to give myself a boost, I make my own medicine in the form of Chicken Noodle Soup. This is one of my favorite soups. The recipe is for making it from scratch, which shouldn’t be a surprise, unless you’re new here. But, I’ve included a quickie version for busier days.
Finally, we are wrapping up the week with Meatball Hoagie Sandwiches from Comfortably Domestic. These would be perfect for a Superbowl party! Meatballs are always a hit, so whether you tuck them into this tasty sandwich, or just pile them on your plate, check out this recipe. Using a scoop helps keep your meatball uniform in size, so they cook evenly – Chef Tip!
This week, the extras are perfect for Valentine’s Day. Not that you have to only make them during the second week of February! They’re good anytime of the year, but since Valentine’s Day is approaching, so we have a couple of treats that would be perfect for celebrating with your special someone.
First up is this Skinny Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Martini from The Speckled Palate. I love a good cocktail and this drink ticks all the boxes.
Finally, the last recipe is this gorgeous Red Velvet Cake with Ermine Frosting from Pastry Chef Online. For me, red velvet cake is all about the frosting. The cake part is usually just a vehicle for frosting, because the cake is usually “meh”. This recipe has a delicious cake as well as a tasty frosting. Plus, here’s a gorgeous red cake stand for displaying your cake.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a delicious day!
