Welcome to this week’s Dinner Divas Weekly Meal Plan! This week’s menu is delicious. We’re serving up a bunch of hearty comfort this week because it’s cold outside! (Except for in Texas because we’re having a weird warm front right now… but it’s supposed to get chillier by next week.)

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?
