Looking for food inspiration for next week’s menu? Look no farther than the Dinner Divas weekly meal plan, a comprehensive plan that includes FIVE dinners and two dessert items. 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.
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?
Monday's Dinner: Penne with Vodka Sauce
Who doesn't love pasta with sauce? And a homemade vodka sauce sounds BRILLIANT! My friend, Jenni, at Pastry Chef Online, shares her recipe for the BEST vodka sauce for us to start off the week!
Tuesday's Dinner: Cajun Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo
We're all about Cajun spices in this house because, well, there's an actual Cajun who lives here. And I know for a fact that he's going to be SUPER into Comfortably Domestic's Cajun Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo. Because YUM.
Wednesday's Dinner: French Onion Bruschetta
By now, you should know about my love affair for everything related to French Onion flavors and bruschetta. Why would we not combine those two favorites into one delightful dish that works as an appetizer or an entire dinner? There's a reason why this is one of the most popular recipes on TSP...
Thursday's Dinner: Instant Pot Crack Chicken
This Mexican-inspired Instant Pot Crack Chicken is droolworthy, y'all. Pastry Chef Online knows her flavors, and the fact that this chicken is KETO and made fast in the Instant Pot just makes it even better!
Friday's Dinner: Veggie Cakes
Veggie Cakes, Veggie Cakes, Veggie Cakes! Pook's Pantry brings the veggies to this week's menu once again, and these cakes are filled with some of our family's favorites. What veggies are YOUR fam's jam?
Dessert #1: Devil's Food Cupcakes with Mint Buttercream
If you're cooking for St. Patrick's Day this weekend or looking for a sweet, minty and chocolatey treat for next week, Pook's Pantry has you covered with these delightful and insanely flavorful Devil's Food Cupcakes with Mint Buttercream!
Dessert #2: Milk Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
Comfortably Domestic is bringing us a homemade frosting that we can use in various applications this week! The real question about this Milk Chocolate Buttercream Frosting is... what are you going to put it on first?
