This week's menu of easy dinner recipes features new favorites like Italian Roast Beef Sandwiches and Shrimp Pasta Salad. I also included some quick fix meals that don't even need a recipe.

Hi! I’ve had my hands full the past couple days, and weariness is high right now! I only told my email subscribers exactly what’s going on because it’s kinda embarrassing, and I don’t want it in the Internet archives forever more. That’s why you should subscribe right now so you get all the deets in the future ;)

Speaking of being weary, I feel I should tell you that I don’t actually make all seven recipes I share in my weekly menus. I do make dinner at home almost every night, although sometimes we get delivery once a week or so. Some of my meals just don’t make it to the blog because they’re too easy to even be called a recipe. I figured most of you have a couple extra easy nights each week too, so I figured I’d try adding those dinner ideas in here too. This week I have five easy recipes plus two “quick fix” meals that require minimal brainpower or energy. Let me know what you think about this in the comments!

  1. NEW: Italian Roast Beef SandwichesMarinara meats beef in this delicious, easy Roast Beef Sandwich recipe!
  2. NEW: Shrimp Pasta Salad with SpinachThis shrimp pasta salad with spinach and artichokes is a perfect warm weather dinner or potluck dish! It's quick to make and can be served cold or slightly warm.
  3. Quick Fix: Easy Bean Tostadas – I almost always have everything on hand to make these, and they are really tasty! Just spread canned refried beans on corn tostadas, and sprinkle shredded Mexican cheese on top. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Top with shredded cabbage or lettuce and salsa.
  4. Slow Cooker Chicken StroganoffSlow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff - A reader favorite!
  5. Quick Fix: Turkey Burgers with Fries – Buy the pre-made ground turkey burgers in the meat section, and season them with your favorite marinade or seasoning blend. (My favorites are Dale’s marinade or Cajun seasoning.) Cook them in a hot iron skillet while baking frozen fries or tater tots for 25 minutes in a 450 degree oven. Top with all your favorites like lettuce, tomato, pickled jalapeños, whatever you like. Buns are optional.
  6. Breakfast for Dinner Hashbrown CasseroleBreakfast for Dinner Casserole: This easy hashbrown casserole is just right for any time of day!
  7. Green Chicken Enchilada SoupGreen Chicken Enchilada Soup

I love quick meals, and don’t cook every night. Your chicken stroganoff looks very good!

I love quick fix meals, since I don’t cook every night. My hubby and I order dinners from restaurants, or pick up something from Subway now and then. Breakfast dinners are something I enjoy, too. Last night’s dinner was coconut and almond flour pancakes with bacon. :-)
