Weekly Meal Plan for 8/16

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.


Welcome to our eighth weekly meal plan! (if you missed last week’s you can find it here) I hope this plan makes your week just a little bit easier and inspires you in the kitchen! Every Sunday I will be sharing a list of yummy main dish ideas! This week’s plan features a variety of dishes that are perfect for lunch and dinner and you’ll also find a couple of delicious desserts!

I definitely love the idea of planning the week ahead of time! Not only does it make the grocery shopping easy but I find I spend so much less time trying to come up with ideas when I do it all at once or my week is planned! (I’ve also got a free Printable Grocery list here). Of course these meals can be made in any order. I’ve left one day free for date night, included some suggestions for sides and of course you’ll find some delicious desserts to finish off the week!

I hope you enjoy these suggestions as much as I did! Please be sure to stop by and visit each of the blogs below who have shared their yummy dishes with us!
