This eclectic meal plan, which includes relatively healthy dishes that won’t take all day to cook, is meant to help busy cooks plan for the week ahead! We hope this meal plan provides great ideas and delicious dishes for your family.

Collage for Dinner Divas Weekly Meal Plan 100, featuring five of the seven recipes from the week

Welcome to this week’s Dinner Divas Weekly Meal Plan! In celebration of our HUNDREDTH menu, this week highlights some of the most popular dinners and desserts. (Is anyone surprised by my offering? Nope, not me.)

In case you’re new around these parts, I share a new menu plan here every Friday morning. It will always include FIVE dinner options and TWO extras, curated by me and my friends, who make up the Dinner Divas. Our dinner options feature (mostly) healthy, seasonal foods that don’t take all day to prepare because nobody has time for that. 😉 And the extras we share can be side dishes, desserts, drinks, etc.

We hope this weekly menu helps you create your shopping list and prepare for the week ahead, as well as provide inspiration. And hey, if it makes your life a little easier, too, we’re thrilled to help! 

Y’all ready for this?
