Meal Plans Made Simple #5

It’s Friday!!! Finally. Oh! And Happy Valentine’s Day! I actually do not feel like meal planning anything today. I’d kinda just like some chocolate and wine. But I guess my family will probably get hungry and so I should probably be prepared. Just in case. Here are a few fantastic ideas that’ll maybe get you out of your dinner rut or make meal time a little more simple.



Chicken Taco Soup – The NY Melrose Family-lets start the week off right!



Crispy Orange Chicken Quinoa Bowls – Sugar Dish Me – Sweet and spicy honey orange sriracha sauce. I think that explains it.




Spaghetti al Limone -Cooking with Curls-Sometimes it’s the simplest recipes that are the best!




Grilled Artichoke, Chicken and Bacon Pizza – Dinners, Dishes and Desserts-Every part of this pizza screams delicious!




Sloppy Joe Oven Baked Tacos-Kitchen Meets Girl– Tacos and Sloppy Joes got married. It was great.



Phyllo Chicken Pot Pie – Taste Love and Nourish– A lightened up version of a cozy family favorite. As beautiful as it is tasty!



Crispy Quinoa Power Greens Salad and Smoky Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette – Eats Well With Others– That dressing is soooooo amazing.


Chocolate Cherry Pie Bundles

Chocolate Cherry Pie Bundles – Lemons for Lulu– These pies are so easy! (I’ll give you a hint: the dough is  made of crescent rolls!

I usually meal plan every week but I'm skipping it today. Your Meal Plan looks incredible! I was thinking of a few similar dishes adapted around all of our allergies.

Thanks Holly! We do this every week. I always include a few vegetarian options and we pull it together with families in mind. It's kinda one of my favorite posts -- looking for good things to eat!

These all look amazing but the soup and the pot pie are really calling to me. I must be in need of some nice hot comfort food in this frosty weather!

Hi Diane! Of course that's fine! As long as there is a link back to the original and you re-write the directions in your own words :) Also keep in mind that the meal plans are a collaboration between myself and another blogger (Lemons for Lulu) and we pull the content from our own blogs but also from friends who have given permission -- that said, those posts are some of my favorites for inspiration! Glad you enjoyed it and so glad you're here!

This looks absolutely yummy! I pinned it to try it this week. I'm a horrible cook, but your tagline, "if you can read, you can cook" is keeping me hopeful!
