Mix Up Your Weekly Rotation with These 5 Dinner Ideas

This meal plan is written in partnership with Perdue. 

This month, we welcome back Marta Rivera for more of her meal plans. Marta is a trained chef, mom of twins and Army wife, and a Simply Recipes recipe tester and developer!

Make it from scratch and you’ll be glad you did—even when life is busy.

When I’m staring down a busy week, I pick simple recipes that come together quickly or recipes where I can break up the work. That’s exactly what the five dinner recipes in this week’s meal plan accomplish.

Monday and Tuesday’s recipes can be prepped on the weekend. Take an hour on Sunday to roast the spaghetti squash and scrape the “noodles” for Monday’s dinner. While the squash is roasting, make the rub for the Slow Cooker Cider Pulled Pork, coat a pork shoulder and cook it in the slow cooker. Then, come Tuesday, all you need to do is shred it and make the sauce. You can even serve Monday night’s leftover spaghetti squash casserole as a side for Tuesday’s pulled pork sandwiches.

If meal prep isn’t your thing, that’s OK. The recipes at the end of the week are quick, easy, and come together in less than 30 minutes. Do what works best for you.
