What Cooking? Simple Dinners Meal Plan

It’s Monday and it’s time to decide, if you haven’t already, what’s for dinner this week. I have my meal plan ready below. It’s nothing too fancy but it will keep us fed this week.

Menu plan with recipe links

A couple of weeks ago I had southern fried tofu on the menu, but we didn’t end up eating it. I purchased a beef roast on my shopping trip and we ended up eating the roast two nights that week.

I bumped the southern fried tofu and tacos to this week, I had already purchased everything so I might as well plan to make it this week.

I also have quite a bit of canned salmon on hand, so salmon patties are on our menu plan. As well as a cheap dinner of pancakes.

Here’s what’s on our Meal Plan for this Week,


Easy and Delicious Pan Fried Pork Chops

Pan Fried Pork Chops, Mashed Potatoes, and Green Beans

Tacos, Refried Beans, Chips, and Salsa

Southern Fried Tofu over Egg Noodles with a Salad

Sesame Chicken, Rice, and Stir Fry Vegetables

Pancakes, Sausage, and Eggs

Salmon Patties, Rice, Tartar Sauce, and Vegetables

Chicken Mushroom Noodles, Salad and Fruit


Leftovers most days

Waffle Maker Pizza Pockets with Salad

Hoagie Roll Sandwiches, Chips, and Fruit


I love how easy these cinnamon twist scones are to make. They are as easy to mix up as biscuits, but turn out looking so fancy. Great for breakfast or brunch when company is coming over. They are also a frugal breakfast recipe costing only $.10 each. My family gobbles these up every time I made them.

Toast with Eggs

Cinnamon Twist Scones, Eggs, and Sausage

Eggs, Sausage, Hash Browns, and Toast

  1. Looks like you have some yummy meals planned for this week!

    I made a pork loin roast last night, but it didn’t turn out so well. I marinated it in an herb and garlic sauce, but it didn’t take up the flavor too well, so it tasted bland.

    Tonight we’re having tacos, which is so easy to make and I know it always tastes good 🙂

    Have a great week!

    1. Tacos are always a yummy dinner. I’m sorry to hear your pork roast didn’t take up the flavor very well. You might try cutting a slit here and there through the top of the roast and adding a half garlic clove to each one. That helps to get the garlic flavor into the meat.

      I hope you have a great week too!
