What’s for Dinner, a 7 Day Easy Meal Plan

It’s Monday again. Do you ever have Monday come around and think I wish I knew what we were having for dinner this week? If you have a hard time coming up with what’s for dinner, have a look at our menu plan and see if you can find something new to try. All of these meals have been tested on my family and even my picky eater will eat them.

This week’s menu plan is again full of easy to make meals. I love to cook but I don’t like complicated recipes. When it’s time to make dinner I want to be able to stick dinner in the oven to bake while I’m working on other things, like the pork chop recipe this week.

Or I like to make easy to make skillet meals. Like sesame chicken, omelets, and the skillet pizza pockets on the menu plan this week. All of these can be done in about an half an hour. Which is my kind of meal.


Here’s what’s cooking at our house this week,


Great Grandma's Pork Chops

Grandma’s Pork Chops, Roasted Potatoes, and Salad

Easy Sesame Chicken, Rice, and Stir-fry Vegetables

Tacos and Burritos, Chips and Salsa, and Fruit

Omelets, Hash Browns, and Fruit

Italian Chicken (from the freezer), Mashed Potatoes, and Salad

Chicken Strip Wraps, Salad, and Fruit

When the weather gets warm, I love to make summer recipes that don’t heat up the kitchen. If you want to keep your kitchen cool and still have pizza pockets, try this skillet pizza pockets recipe. It’s easy to make and they turn out nice melty in the middle and a little crisp on the outside, just a diy perfect pizza pocket.

Skillet Pizza Pockets and Salad



Leftover Most Days

Chili and Corn Bread with Salad

Cheeseburger Rolls with Baked Fries



What a great idea for Valentine's Day breakfast or brunch, these cute raspberry heart rolls. So delicious and made from scratch in about 90 minutes. I'll be making these this Valentine's Day.

Toast and Eggs

Pancakes, Eggs, and Sausage

Raspberry Rolls, Eggs, and Sausage

  1. Those raspberry heart rolls look SO yummy! I wish I could have a couple with my morning cup of coffee 🙂

    Tonight I’m making a chicken and broccoli stir fry with jasmine rice on the side. I’ve never tried jasmine rice before, so I’m looking forward to it.

    Hope you have a great week!
