Our easy weekly menu 7/19/21

Are you new to making a weekly menu? If so, see my full post  *How to weekly meal plan* ~it is my all inclusive step by step guide to making a weekly menu for your family.

  1. Keep it simple- there is no need to complicate it, especially if you are just starting out. Try things like soup and sandwiches, breakfast for dinner, whatever is easy to make. Remember the goal is to have dinner on the table, not a gourmet meal.
  2. Prioritize- learn what is important for your family or household. Find the shortcuts that work for you. My favorite short cuts to plan dinner’s are:
    • Plan quicker meals on busier nights
    • Have leftover night 1/week
    • If you can, cook a batch of meat over the weekend- it could be used for tacos, spaghetti or chili
  3. Set aside time to plan and grocery shop and use what you have (don’t forget to look in your refrigerator, freezer and pantry)
  4. Enjoy!

Our Dinner plan for 7/19/21:


Instant Pot Chicken Tacos

Put about 1 cup of water to the bottom of your Instant Pot

  • Add ground chicken thighs and diced garlic
  • Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the meat (I like to use my homemade recipe)
  • Using the manual option on high on your Instant Pot cook for 20 minutes (make sure that the dial is turned to sealed) Make sure the Instant Pot is not under a cabinet and has plenty of space to release the pressure at the end
  • Once the time is up turn the dial to release the pressure and let the steam finish releasing
  • Then take off the lid and change it to saute, make sure the chicken is cooked through and let it thicken (about 5-6 minutes)
  • Once it’s all ready serve with tortillas, rice or on salad
  • Top with tomatoes, cheese avocado, and sour cream!
