Welcome to this week’s Dinner Divas Weekly Meal Plan! As always, this week’s menu is delicious. Including vegetarian-friendly dishes, lots of fall flavors and two pumpkin treats, we’ve got all the bases covered this week.

What is the weekly meal plan?

In case you’re new around these parts, I share a new menu 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?

Dinner Divas Weekly Meal Plan (September 30 - October 4, 2019)

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 extras, be they drinks, desserts, sides, etc. 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.

Monday's Dinner: Ratatouille Hand Pies and Pot Pie

I love a savory hand pie, so these Ratatouille Hand Pies, which can also be made into a pot pie, sound right up my alley. Comforting and filling, this dinner is all kinds of perfect for sharing with the family and getting in some veggies, too!

Tuesday's Dinner: Cinnamon Apple Pork Chops

We are obsessed with these Cinnamon Apple Pork Chops. They're the perfect fall dinner, and since they include apples and onions and a gravy, this is an incredible recipe that doesn't necessarily need a side dish. (If you want to make a side, though, I highly recommend mashed potatoes.)

How gorgeous is this pumpkin bread, y'all? Since it's the season for all things pumpkin, you should definitely bake up a loaf or two of this goodness for your whole family to enjoy in the mornings... but so you can share it with friends, too!
