Looking for some simple dinner ideas to fill out your meal plan for the week? Look no further – here’s 7 easy dinner menu ideas for this week!

Okay, guys, I know I haven’t posted a new menu plan in a long time, but I’m still doing them. So, today, I thought it would be fun to share this week’s super easy dinner menu ideas.

I love easy dinners! Even though I like to cook from scratch and I prefer homemade food, I still like it to be easy. I don’t have time to spend hours in the kitchen and, honestly, I don’t want to!

So, any dinner ideas that take less than an hour to prepare are on the top of my menu plan and I especially like those that go in my fancy new Crock-Pot!

This week’s dinner menu ideas are all really simple to make, but they taste so good, you’ll be able to convince the family that you spent hours in the kitchen.
