Welcome, friends, to the first Dinner Divas Weekly Meal Plan posts of our second year! Yes, week 53 is here! If you missed our 1st year anniversary post last week, please go back and check it out. We all shared our most popular, tried and true recipes, and you will love all of them. You can find that post here.
And find all our posts in our archives.
Want to pin this post? Here you go! I think you’ll prolly want to pin this, because this is a great week of menus. To summarize, we have 2 InstantPot (read FAST) meals, quesadillas and sheet pan salmon (also fast), AND Pizza Friday. Huzzah! Our extras are two tasty adult beverages, so be sure to check them out down at the bottom of the post, you guys.
Smoky Beef Carnitas from me. These carnitas? Seriously amazing. Making them is a bit of a process, but nothing about it is hard. Make them on Sunday and use the meat as taco filling, to top nachos or a salad, in the quesadillas or even as a pizza topping. So. Delicious.
Instant Pot French Onion Meatloaf from The Speckled Palate. No words, friends. Just comfort. Pure, Tuesday night, Instant Pot comfort.
Mango Chicken Quesadillas with Brie from Comfortably Domestic. What a fantastic combination of flavors Kirsten has come up with. Ooey, rich brie, tender chicken, and sweet, earthy mango. Winner!
Sheet Pan Honey Chipotle Salmon from Pook’s Pantry. I am truly coming to believe that a sheet pan is a busy person’s best tool to make a quick, easy supper. Just put whatever you’re going to eat on a sheet pan, and roast. Of course, a honey chipotle marinade does not hurt. No, it does not.
Bacon & Pickled Pepper Pizza from me. Make your own dough or grab some frozen or fresh at the store. Peter Piper would adore this pizza, and he’s appreciate the addition of bacon, too. The zing of the pickled peppers cuts through the fattiness of the cheese and bacon. Plus: vegetables!
Blueberry Mint Juleps from The Speckled Palate. This right here? What a gorgeous beverage. You want this. Bourbon never had it so good.
Mint Julep Kombucha Cocktail from Pook’s Pantry. Zingy and “practically good for you,” says Cheryl. And I believe her. She is brewing her own kombucha, but use your favorite. Or ask her to teach you how to make your own. And then add sugar, mint and bourbon. Yes.
See, I told you it was a good week! I hope you enjoy this menu plan friends, and that it helps you answer the question, “What’s for dinner?” Grab your pens and get to work on that shopping list.
Thank you so much for spending some time with us today.
Take care, and have a lovely day.
