It’s time to start thinking about your meal plan for next week. From a 15-minute Lo Mein to the easiest weeknight stir-fry, 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.
15-Minute Lo Mein at Pinch of Yum. I probably don’t need to say more, but will, because you won’t find a more kid-friendly #MeatlessMonday meal.
This quick and light recipe for Quinoa Bowls with Harissa Shrimp at The Whole Bite is packed with flavor and can be easily adapted to whatever you have on hand. Just make sure to follow our instructions on how to cook quinoa so that it comes out mild and kid-friendly.
I know: By Wednesday you want to call for take-out. This Weeknight Mongolian Beef Stir-Fry at Simply Scratch will save you some money, taste better, and put something healthier on your family’s table too.
Not only is this Chinese Chicken Salad from The Dinner Plan cookbook super tasty thanks to crunchy noodles, juicy clementine wedges, and a dead easy hoisin dressing, but store-bought rotisserie chicken makes it a snap to make too.
I know, I know: Pizza is about your speed by Friday, but the recipe for this very fall-friendly Roast Pork and Caramelized Balsamic Onions at Simple Bites is super simple and mostly hands off. End the week this way and use leftovers for yummy sandwiches over the weekend. Or, fine, order that pizza on Friday and make this for a family meal on Saturday or Sunday. That works too.
