What I Cooked for Dinner Last Week – Weekly Dinner Menu

weekly dinner menu family friendly

Another weekly dinner menu! This week we made a really good sheet pan recipe, some super easy and kid friendly quiche cups, and more!


I share these weekly dinner menus every week on Sunday

If you’ve missed the last few weeks, my weekly dinner menu is up on the blog every Sunday. You can see our past menus RIGHT HERE.

This week we made some good dinner recipes, both old favorites and a few new ones.




Sheet Pan Dinner – Cashew Chicken

We have a sheet pan recipe every Monday, and this one was a hit. The addition of cashews was amazing (of course).

I served it over white rice for the boys, and quinoa for me.

The Best Chicken Fajitas

I’ve been making this recipe from my friend Erin’s blog, Meaningful Eats (gluten free recipes!), for probably four years. It’s my FAVORITE fajita recipe I’ve ever had (better than restaurants, in my opinion!), and so easy.

My biggest tip is to keep cooking on low until the peppers and onions are super soft and the sauce becomes nice and thick. Mmm, so good.

I served this with Tortillaland uncooked tortillas (our fave, but not gluten free), and also with tortilla chips because we like to scoop up the leftovers in the pan with crunchy tortilla chips.





Quiche Cups

My mom made quiche all the time growing up, but my family doesn’t love it because it’s just too soft. So I had the idea one time to cook it in a muffin tin so each little cup was crispy, not mushy. It worked like a charm. Everyone loves eating them and they’re so quick and easy.

I use THIS RECIPE, and add chopped ham (I get it pre-chopped by the pepperoni in the grocery store). No one even minds the spinach!



Fresh Mozzarella and Roasted Red Pepper Panini with Arugula Walnut Pesto

Ok, so I majorly simplified these sandwiches from the original recipe. I bought pesto instead of made it myself, and I just used provolone instead of fresh mozzarella. And I used roasted red pepper from a jar.

So I just basically used the idea, not the recipe.

But they were delish!

pot roast


I made this for Sunday dinner, and this is a really good pot roast recipe.

I served it with a half baked Italian loaf I bought from the grocery store bakery.

    These posts are the best! SInce you’ve been doing them, my meal planning game has undergone nothing short of a renaissance! I may not even use one of your exact recipes in a given week (though I usually do), but the inspiration/motivation your menus give me has been huge. I know my meal plans are only happening so easily because you’re on top of your game — plus putting in the extra work of posting your menus for us — so, from the bottom of my sick-of-figuring-out-what-to-feed-people heart: Thank you!!!
