Weekly Dinner Menus
& Printable Shopping List

Easy Ideas for Dinner This Week

Each week, this page features a new set of free weekly dinner menus, along with easy dinner recipes, and a one page printable grocery shopping list that corresponds to the featured recipes of the week. You can use these menus for inspiration for dinner tonight or for a week's worth of dinners!

The dinner ideas below have hyper-linked recipes which you can click on  to view the dishes that have been selected for this week.

Below, you will also find a link for a detailed printable grocery list. This shopping list includes all of the ingredients needed to make the meals included in this week's menus. A check mark has been placed next to all the ingredients that you will need to have on hand or purchase to make the recipes for the week - You don't need to plan, I do all the planning for you!

Here Are The Dinner Plans
for This Week!

  • Grilled Turkey Burgers served with sugar snap peas and a fresh fruit salad

    (If you are too busy to plan dinners,
    you'll be amazed at how much time this will save you!)

    Click for the printable grocery shopping list, dinner ideas and recipes for this week.

     A summary of this week's menus and recipes is included with the grocery list to make printing easier - Everything in one click!

    I would still suggest you visit the individual recipe pages as listed above as I often include suggestions and hints in the Recipe Background section.

    You will need Adobe Reader installed on your computer in order to open and read this grocery list. You can get Adobe Reader here for free (a new window will open so you can download it without leaving this page).

    I have some families who use the one step print link to print out the menus, recipes, and grocery list. 

    They do the shopping, and leave the printout on the counter for whomever is home to start cooking dinner - Easy!

    Most of these recipes call for common ingredients, so even if you are just looking for ideas for dinner tonight you might find an idea here! I do try to limit the processed ingredients and try to use a lot of fresh fruits and veggies so that that the menus are not only easy but healthy too.

    Make sure to bookmark this page or check back every week as I usually post new menus by Friday for use the next week.

    Most sites charge a monthly fee for this service.  I'm doing this for free as I have so many people who write to me that it would be hard for them to pay for a dinner planning service on top of what they spend on groceries. 

    It's Free?

    I'm often asked if there is a fee charged to receive the menus, grocery shopping list, and weekly e-mail. I have made a conscious decision to keep this site free to all users in order to help others make homemade dinners with ease.

    If you would care to, I do accept donations instead of charging a subscription fee. This is purely optional, but by clicking on the donation button below and sending a donation of any amount lets me know that you find the information on this site valuable and want this site to continue to operate.

    If you'd care to buy me a cup of coffee (I'll take a venti!) you can click the donate button below and let me know how much this free service is worth to you.  It actually means more to me when people donate after they receive the menu list for the week then if they paid a weekly subscription up front!  Thanks!

    Some of my visitors write and tell me that would never be able to afford a subscription fee or even to donate, but they pay me by spreading the word about this site.  If you have friends who would like some new dinner ideas, please pin, share  a link on Facebook, or just pass the word on! That kind of payment is greatly appreciated as well!

    You Are Secure!

There are over 300 easy, family friendly recipes on this site.  These are recipes that I make for my own family.  They are dishes that I, as a busy Mom of 4, hav time to cook and that my kids will actually eat! 

These are not exotic recipes but could be characterized as healthy comfort foods without a lot of processed ingredients. 

Even if you don't think you have time to cook or haven't had much success with cooking in the past, I write my recipes in kind of a chatty manner that people tell me helps them achieve a great result.

The feedback I get from many people is that they are making  home-cooked meals, sometimes for the first time in their lives They also tell me they are saving money on groceries, ordering less take-out dinners, and that their families are eating dinner together. 

There are comments from many people who have used this site at the bottom of most pages.  If you like what you see, I'd love to have you comment as well!

Wishing you good cooking!
