Quick Meal Ideas

5 Day Quick and Easy Dinner Menus

Are you in need of quick meal ideas?

The menus in this section of the website are designed for busy moms who want to cook nutritious dinners but do not have time to spend hours in the kitchen. I have chosen tasty and kid approved recipes that take 10 minutes or less of prep time.

Please note that most of them still need time to cook, but I promise you that their preparation will be a breeze.

Some of them require a slow-cooker which in my opinion is a busy mom’s best friend. If you do not have one yet, I recommend you get one. You will not be sorry!

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 have a stock of potatoes, flavoured rice and pasta in my pantry. That gives me plenty of options for a quick side dish if I’m running short on time.

To fully benefit from the weekly dinner menus follow the following steps:

  1. Choose your weekly menu

  2. Print the recipes

  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
