Guys, here we are. Easy Weekly Dinner Menu #100. Triple digits. I don’t know about you, but I think 100 weeks of writing dinner menus is quite a few weeks! To recognize this slightly momentous occasion, I want to talk about two things: #1 – A Giveaway and #2 – The Menus.
First up, I can’t thank you all enough for coming back week after week to see what I’ve been cooking for dinner. It is my sincere hope that you find recipes you love that make your life easier because that is the whole reason I started The Weary Chef! If you are new here, welcome! I hope you will like what you see and become a regular. I want to thank my readers in the best way I know how, which is with a giveaway.
I thought and thought about how best to do this, and I decided that instead of one biggish prize to one person, I would give four smaller prizes to four people. I wish I could give every one of my loyal readers a prize, but at least this way I won’t have to limit it to just one! Because of the holiday next week, this is a quick one. I want to announce the winners in next week’s menu, so I’ll contact winners by email by 8am PST on 12/24. You’ll have 24 hours to reply to claim your prize. If I don’t hear from you, a new winner will be chosen. Be sure to check your email the morning of Christmas Eve to see if you won! Good luck!

Now that we got the prizes out of the way, let me ask you: Is there anything you would change about my menus? I’ve been pretty much doing these weekly menus the same way for nearly two years. I bring you seven easy dinner recipes, at least two of them brand new. My photos have gotten better, but otherwise my weekly dinner menus are about the same as always. Do you find them useful? I’d love your feedback and requests if there is anything new or different you’d like to see in the format or content. You can tell me in the comments or email me to let me know.
Now, let’s get to the food! These dinners are super easy even by my standards because I know you’ll be busy this week. Have a great holiday, and I’ll talk to you soon!
- Cranberry Apple Chicken and Rice Skillet
- 25-Minute Cheeseburger Macaroni
- Slow Cooker Sauerkraut and Apple Pork Chops
- Spicy Chicken Sliders
- No-Brainer Taco Macaroni
- Buffalo Chicken Wraps

Thank you again for all your visits, comments, and shares. I hope you have a very happy Christmas, Hanukkah, or whatever you are celebrating, and I will talk to you next week! xo

I have an idea-Lets everybody (your readers) send you one recipe to do and make some kind of review!I dont know – maybe monthly’readers recipe’ or something!If you like the idea i’ll be happy to read your comment about it :)
So generous…thanks for giveaway!Happy Holidays!
>If you like my idea i’ll send you one of my favorite recipe :)My english is so bad
I really like this idea, Dimitar! I would always be happy to try out a reader’s recipe if they don’t mind me sharing it on my blog. If you have one to share, I’d love for you to email it to me: andi(at)wearychef(dot)com Happy Holidays!
Deb Harrington says
Andi, congratulations on your momentous occasion! I wanted to thank you for this generous opportunity and also to wish you and your family a blessed and Merry Christmas!
Thank you so much, Deb! Good luck, and have a wonderful Christmas!
Angie S says
Hi Andi! I’m with Heather in that more meatless recipes would be fantastic. I really do like your recipes – they’re the right size for our family, use regular ingredients and taste great!
If there was one change I’d like to see, it would be that when a person clicks on a picture/link for a recipe, that it open in a new window. That’s a personal preference thing, but you asked, so there it is! :)
Have a very Merry Christmas!!!
Thank you so much, Angie. I’ll work on including more vegetarian dishes, and I’ll give some thought to opening links in a new window/tab. I do have all links to other sites open in a new window, but I’m afraid people would be annoyed if all the links on my site opened a new window. Let me think about it! (Do you know you can right click or command-click to open any link in a new tab? That might be the best solution.) Have a wonderful Christmas!
Judy Jones says
You are great thanks for all you do — Happy Holidays – judy
You’re great too, Judy :) Thank you so much! Happy Holidays!
I’m new here, but just wanted to say that I’m SO happy I found your blog. These easy weekly dinner menus are just what I need! I spend way too much time on Sundays planning out the week. Now, I’ve already got some ideas thanks to you :)
Thank you so much, Meg! I’m so glad you found me :)
Heather in VA says
I love your easy weekly dinner menus but I’d like to see more meatless and seafood options as we try to do one of each every week.
Thank you for the reminder about the vegetarian options, Heather. I am a big meat eater, so I forget to include meatless options! Many of my recipes could be converted to vegetarian pretty easily, so I’ll start including instructions for that on at least one each week. I love seafood and have plenty of those recipes, so I’ll get better about adding those too. Thanks so much!
