Looking for food inspiration for next week’s menu? Look no farther than the Dinner Divas weekly meal plan, a comprehensive plan that includes FIVE dinners, a fruity sipper and a summer dessert, too!
Welcome to this week’s Dinner Divas Weekly Meal Plan! This week’s menu, as always, is delicious and eclectic. We’re featuring some summertime classics and favorites, including veggie-heavy dishes and two extras that are something we all need this coming week.
What is the weekly meal plan?
In case you’re new around these parts, I share a new menu plan here every Friday morning. It will always include FIVE dinner options and TWO extras, curated by me and my friends, who make up the Dinner Divas. Our dinner options feature (mostly) healthy, seasonal foods that don’t take all day to prepare because nobody has time for that. 😉 And the extras we share can be side dishes, desserts, drinks, etc.
We hope this weekly menu helps you create your shopping list and prepare for the week ahead, as well as provide inspiration. And hey, if it makes your life a little easier, too, we’re thrilled to help!
Y’all ready for this?
Monday's Dinner: Greek-Style Grilled Vegetable Gazpacho
Gazpacho is the perfect dish to make during the summertime, and the addition of Greek-style roasted veggies to this one makes me so incredibly happy. Who wants a big 'ol bowl today?
Tuesday's Dinner: Beef Taco Pasta Salad
Not going to lie: We've made this Beef Taco Pasta Salad several times since the recipe idea was formed... and everyone we've shared it with, as well as the people who've made it on their own, have LOVED this unique pasta salad. A mash up of two summertime favorites, it's great for sharing AND great for dinner!
Wednesday's Dinner: Green Vegetable Cakes
I don't know about you, but I'm all about the VEGGIES in the summer, and these Green Vegetable Cakes check a lot of boxes for me in that regard. Pook's Pantry is so good with flavor, too, that I know these Green Vegetable Cakes are going to go over well for the whole family!
Thursday's Dinner: Cowboy Tumbleweed Burger
Fire up the grill to make some burgers on Thursday! These Cowboy Tumbleweed Burgers are something special, for sure, and the ingredients that take them from a regular burger to something more make me smile. I have no doubt these will be gobbled up!
Friday's Dinner: Three Cheese Lasagna Pizza
What better way than to celebrate the impending weekend with PIZZA NIGHT? I love the idea of combining pizza and lasagna into one dish, and this Three Cheese Lasagna Pizza sounds utterly delicious! Pair it with a salad, and you're set!
Dessert Option: Red White and Blueberry Yogurt Pops
It's getting hot in Dallas, and we're always on the lookout for solid popsicle recipes to keep us cool in the late afternoons. I love the use of yogurt in these popsicles and the colors, too!
