5 Day Dinner Menus

5 day menus are full of easy dinner ideas and especially designed for people that do not cook every day of the week.

I, quite often fit into this category. There are days that we go out for dinner, do take-out or visit friends.

Before my weekly shopping trip, I look at the week ahead and see how many times I will cook. Then I choose my menu accordingly.

Each week’s menu contains five main dishes and a shopping list. The side dishes are not included with the menus or shopping lists. It is up to you to decide on the side dishes that you like.

I always keep a stock of potatoes, flavoured rice, pasta and frozen vegetables. This gives me plenty of options for a quick side dish if I’m running short on time.

To fully benefit from the 5 day menus follow these steps:

  1. Choose your 5 day menu

  2. Print the recipes (most recipes serve 4 unless otherwise noted)

  3. Print the shopping list

  4. Check the shopping list and cross off the ingredients you already have at home

  5. Add your choice of side dishes onto the list

  6. Head to the grocery store

  7. Enjoy stress free dinners!

  8. Return a week later for your next week’s menu

  9. Repeat steps 1-8
