Quick Dinner Ideas for This Week’s Meal Plan

Welcome to a new week and a new menu plan. This week’s plan has quite a few quick and easy dinners this week.

Menu plan with recipe links

I have a good amount of frozen broccoli on hand. So I decided to use it in the couscous chicken and vegetable dish this week.

I also stocked our freezer with pork chops after the purchase of pork loin. It was just $1.99 a pound.

Buying the pork loin is so much less expensive than buying precut pork chops. If you don’t know how to cut your own chops from a pork loin you can watch this video.

In a few of our dinners this week we’ll be using the cooked ground beef I made for the freezer a week or so ago when I got a deal at Safeway. I purchased 10 pounds of ground beef for just $2.99 a pound such a great deal.

I also purchased a huge watermelon at Walmart for just $5 so we have watermelon to enjoy for a while too.

Finally, my son requested to have pizza cups this week. We haven’t had them in a while and with the cooler weather here it will be a good dinner that will help heat up the house too.

  1. I love eating broccoli with dinner…it’s easy to prepare and I actually really like the taste. We were having it so often, without my realizing it, that my husband asked to have a break from it! Oops! Glad that you got a good deal on some for your family 🙂

    Have a great week!
