Having an Easy Meal Plan is the BEST way to tackle meal planning! You have five main dish options to choose from, one breakfast recipe, an easy side dish recipe, and a couple of desserts!
All the recipes are easy and are the kind of recipes your kids will LOVE! It’s a flexible meal plan so it works great for families with busy schedules!
This weekly meal plan has it ALL! It has beef, fish, chicken, and hot dogs! Grill, bake in the oven, make ahead…you name it, we’ve got it!
I don’t assign main dishes from my menu to particular days of the week. Because, no matter how hard I try and plan my life, something always changes.
I always think about dinner one day ahead. By then I usually have a pretty good idea of what my day will be like and how much time I’ll have for making dinner.
Then I decide if I need a quick meal, slow cooker meal, if I’ll have time to grill, or if I’m going to be doing a last-minute instant pot recipe!
So, feel free to use these meals in whatever order works best for your family! It’s such an easy meal plan to use!

Main Dishes for an Easy Meal Plan
Summer is busy, but making meals doesn’t have to slow you down. These meals are easy and please even the pickiest eaters!
My favorite “get dinner on the table every night” tip is: Prep ahead as much as possible! And, do batch work!
So, I grate enough cheese for the whole week on Monday. Dice all the onions you’ll need this week one time. It’s such a time saver!
