It’s time to start thinking about your meal plan for next week. From 15-minute Street Corn Tostadas to health on a sheet pan, we’ve got five weeknight dinners that will get you through the week ahead. So grab a pen, make your shopping list, and stock up before the weekend’s over. And if it’s easier for you to do that from your inbox, be sure to sign up for our weekly meal plan emails.
I’ll eat Mexican-style street corn in any form, so these Mexican Street Corn Tostadas at Isabel Eats make a perfect #MeatlessMonday meal. Plus, they take only 15-minutes to pull together.
This Braised Cubed Steak with Peppers and Olives at Skinnytaste comes with directions for the stove, slow cooker, and Instant Pot. That, alone, was enough to hook me, but the fact that this hearty meal also comes together on a tight budget helps too.

Another great budget meal — and one that can come together using our favorite supermarket shortcut, a rotisserie chicken — this easy Udon with Chicken and Garlicky Peanut Dressing at Bon Appétit is perfect hot weather eats. If you can’t find udon noodles in the international aisle of your supermarket, look for soba or just grab plain old spaghetti.
I’m not quite sure why Sylvia at Feasting at Home calls this meal a Voodoo Bowl, but the fact it’s a Sheet Pan Voodoo Bowl has me not caring too much. Why would I when a meal this quick and easy looks so good? You can use chicken and tofu like Sylvia, or just one of the two. You can even substitute another meat if you like — this recipe is adaptable.
With summer in the air, I’m trading in Friday night pizzas and cheesy casseroles for grilled deliciousness like these Grilled Hawaiian Pork Chops at The Life Jolie. These need nothing more than a pile of steamed rice and a salad, except maybe a seat outside and glass of rosé for mama.
