Looking for food inspiration for next week’s menu? Look no farther than the Dinner Divas weekly meal plan! This week’s plan includes FIVE dinners, a summery drink and a dessert, too.
Welcome to this week’s Dinner Divas Weekly Meal Plan! This week’s menu is delicious and features more summertime goodness. It also includes a lemony dessert (a favorite of mine, but something I never make for myself) and a warm weather spritzer.
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: Gourmet BLT Sandwich with Cheddar and Avocado
I don't know why, but I always seem to forget that sandwiches can totally be a delightful dinner! And quite honestly, I'm looking forward to these Gourmet BLTs because holy cow, do I love a good BLT in the summertime! What do you think of the add-ons? Are you excited to try this sandwich, too?
Tuesday's Dinner: Grilled BBQ Chicken Flatbread
Fire up the grill tonight to make a Grilled BBQ Chicken Flatbread! This dish has been a favorite of ours since last summer, and we're firing up the grill a lot more often recently because the dog days aren't here... yet. This flatbread has extra veggies added to it, too, so if you're looking for a way to use up some summer veggies, we've got you covered!
Wednesday's Dinner: Potato Corn Chowder with Bacon
Question: How do you feel about soup in the summertime? I didn't think I liked it until I was pregnant with our first, and it was one of the only things that really sounded good that first trimester. So you KNOW I'm pumped to try this Potato Corn Chowder with Bacon! Corn is abundant this time of year and combining it with potatoes and bacon sounds insanely delicious!
Thursday's Dinner: Asian-Inspired Flank Steak with Corn and Avocado Salsa
Heck yes for grilling on a Thursday! This Asian-inspired steak with a summery topping is my kind of dinner. (WHY do I never think to make steak on a weeknight? Clearly, I need to fix this ASAP.) Pair this meat with a side salad or some grilled veggies, and your dinner is made!
Friday's Dinner: Red Pepper, Blue Potato and Goat Cheese Grilled Pizza
How cute is this patriotic grilled pizza?!? I have no doubt that our family will adore the ingredients and colors this pizza pie brings to the table. They'll also love the fact that this pizza is grilled! Have you ever grilled a pizza before?
Drink Option: Strawberry Cherry Wine Spritzer
This spritzer is so colorful AND flavorful! And if you're looking for a solid summertime sipper, I would absolutely recommend this one because YUM. Featuring strawberries and cherries, this drink won't last long at any summertime gathering.
Dessert Option: Lemon Meringue Pie
I love, love, love a good Lemon Meringue Pie, but I never think to make one myself. So I'm really excited that Comfortably Domestic shared her recipe with us this week because I think I *need* to make this for my family. I mean... how gorgeous is this pie and that meringue?
