Weekly Meal Plan 12-3-23

Using a weekly meal plan will save you time, money and reduce stress at dinnertime. Having a plan also helps ensure your family eats balanced, nutritious meals throughout the week. Post it on the fridge so your whole family will know what’s for dinner!

This week the menu includes comforting braised short ribs, easy tostadas and a Christmas Chex mix perfect for snacking!

What’s on the Menu

We share a new meal plan every week, so check back every Sunday. I love to add a fruit and veggie to go along with each dinner. Add whatever you have on hand and you know your family will eat.

Sunday: Braised Short Ribs and Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes (serve with green beans)

Monday: One Pot Chicken Parmesan Pasta (your family will love these breadsticks!)

Tuesday: Easy Tostada Recipe (goes perfect with Mexican rice)

Wednesday: Chicken and Rice Soup (in a bread bowl is our favorite way to serve it)

Thursday: Cheeseburger Sliders (with a side of fries)

Friday/Sat: Out or leftovers

Snack: Christmas Chex Mix

DessertBread Pudding
