{No More} Manic Monday Meal Plan

Meal Plan

Dinner. We all have to eat it (or convince our kids to eat it), plan it, shop for it, prepare it, and we’d like to enjoy it. Am I right?

Tanya from Lemons for Luluand myself have come together to hopefully take the stress out of your weekly meal planning!

Welcome to our new weekly post: No More Manic Monday Meal Plan. We’ve done the thinking for you! We’d shop and cook for you too if we could, but this is the best we can do!


Since this is a new series, we’d love your input. What types of recipes would you like to see? What do you look for in a meal plan? We hope you find this helpful and we hope you enjoy!

What a great idea! I'd love to see some vegetarian options that can be made ahead and possibly frozen. Maybe even some without pasta, which we inevitably seem to eat 2 X a week.

Awesome ideas Ameena! The plan ahead freezer meals seem to be popular-- I need to work on that! And vegetarian freezer meals -- even better!

I would like to see more chicken ideas. You get in recipe rut somethimes when it comes to chicken, so I am always looking for new recipes---Rachel

Heather, you are AMAZING. It feels awesome to see how much Sugar Dish has grown and I'm so happy to have seen your journey. The recipe box is so cool!! Like an app. Well, since you guys do focus on seasonal ingredients, some recipes featuring seasonal veggies and fruits and how to make the most of them...and maybe freezer meal ideas/heat and eat meals for busy working moms?

Thank you so much Meenakshi! :) You are a doll. Love the freezer meal idea and of course seasonal ingredients!!! Thank you so much for the feedback! Hope you are doing great!

Great idea! I am looking forward to more entries in this series. How about including some dishes that could be made in a double quantity so that half could be frozen? I am so pressed for time some evenings that I find myself reaching for prepared freezer meals but I would love for those to be meals I had prepared ahead with fresh ingredients instead of the ones that come in a box or bag from the grocery store.

Great idea AJ! I'll see what I can come up with! Thanks so much for the feedback!
