Easy Ideas for Dinner This Week

Previously this site provided a weekly dinner plan each Sunday night.

New for 2024, you can select from a number of weekly plans that suits your needs or base your selection on what's on sale at your local grocery store. For now, I'm starting with several Winter Dinner Menus and will be adding additional menu choices for other seasons.

Below, you will also find  links for the detailed printable grocery list for each weekly menu. This shopping list includes all of the ingredients needed to make the meals included in the menus for that week. A check mark in the grocery list 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!

Clicking On The Printable Dinner Recipes and Grocery List below gives you all the information you need to make five dinners for a week. That Includes the Grocery List,  Dinner Menus, and Recipes for The Week!

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

Choose from the following

A summary each week's menus and recipes is included

with the grocery list to make printing easier - Everything in one click!

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!

I would still suggest you visit the individual recipe pages included in each of the menus 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).

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.

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 and grocery shopping list. 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. 

Instead of thinking of it like a donation,
think of it as buying 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 access the menus then if they paid a weekly subscription up front! 

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!
