Get seven easy dinner ideas including Bacon Gouda Alfredo, Avocado Shrimp Quesadillas, Pizza Pasta Casserole, and lots more!
Test, test. Is this thing on? I don’t want to make you feel bad or anything, but sometimes I wonder if anyone is actually reading these weekly menus because you guys are awfully quiet in the comment department. I would love to hear from you! Tell me what you want more or less of. Make requests. Say hello. Do you have a favorite recipe each week? Would your family go hungry without these menus, or are you just here to look at the pictures? Let me know what you think! If you are too shy to leave a comment, you can always email me. I truly love your feedback!
OK. Enough whining, let’s get to the food! I have a lot of good stuff to share with you this week! Our guest recipe is from one of my best blogging friends, Jen of Yummy Healthy Easy. You can’t go wrong with any of her recipes, but this week I tried her Turkey Pesto Burgers. I made them exactly as written, and they were so moist and flavorful! I’m happy to say that we have leftovers, so I get to eat them again tonight :) Let’s see what other easy dinner ideas are on the menu for this week…
- Lighter Bacon Gouda Alfredo (recipe revamp!) – Serve this one with a side salad, and go to dinner heaven.
- Pesto Turkey Burgers by Yummy Healthy Easy (try them with Cajun Oven Fries!)
- Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff (serve with steamed green beans or broccoli)
- Double Cheese Avocado and Shrimp Quesadillas (brand new!)
- Pizza Pasta Casserole
- Kale and Quinoa Salad with Salmon (or chicken!) and Orange Vinaigrette
- Fork Tender Cube Steaks in Gravy (serve with your favorite green veggie)

Thanks so much, Tina! It’s great to hear from you!
Love your weekly menus, Andi! They are so helpful since I am always on the look out for new quick and tasty recipes and your dishes always look mouthwatering :)
You are so sweet, Kelly. Thank you! xo
I just came across your site today (through Pinterest) and saved it to my favorites right away! I love the meal plans you post since I’m always scrounging for new dinner ideas!
Thank you so much, Lisa! I really appreciate it, and I hope you love the recipes you find here. Enjoy your week!
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
I’m here! Not looking for weekly menus and typically catching this post on my phone (hard to comment from), so I just pin what I think will work for me or what I want to try and move on. I typically try to cook for the week on Sunday, with the exception of quick 20-30 min stuff during the week. So I always look for stuff I think has staying power or would be easy to freeze.
Hi, Steph! I’m sorry for taking so long to reply! I was in deep thought about how I could add more make-ahead recipes to my menus and then never actually answered you. I do a lot more of the 20-30 minute recipes, but I am always happy when I have dinner made ahead of time. I’ll work on more of those! Thank you so much for being a long-time reader. I’m happy to have you!
I just found you and am very excited! I am in desperate need of new, healthy dinner ideas, so I am excited to keep an eye on your weekly menus :)
Hi, Jen! It’s nice to meet you. I try to keep my recipes reasonably healthy, so I hope you will find some you want to try. Have a great weekend!
Fine…I’ll quite silently stalking you. ;) Really I do love the blog! Life has been so busy lately that I get a few minutes a day to even read…I promise I’ll do better at commenting.
I’ve used the pizza casserole one in the past and it’s a family favorite.
The cube steak recipe is happening Monday night I was just wondering what to do with them.
Hi, Felicia! Thanks for saying hello! You can go back to stalking if you want. Now I’ll know you’re there lurking in the shadows ;) I think you’ll love the cube steaks. I mean, we’re talking about cube steaks here, not filet mignon, but they are tender and covered in gravy, which is my idea of a great dinner! Hope you are having a good weekend :)
You know I love your blog Andi :)
Thank you, Judy! xo
Yes, I am here and reading each email! I cook for a living but sometimes need help with new ideas, so thank you!
Wow, Patricia! It sounds like I should be getting tips from you instead of the other way around! What kind of cooking do you do? I’m flattered that you come here for ideas. Thanks so much!
I was hired to cook three days a week for two sisters about 8 years ago, only one is living today. I also bake every week for elderly family members and dear husband. I try to stay with low carb but no one else I cook for eats LC. I do appreciate yor blog! Patty
Thanks again, Patty! Now I’m not eating wheat (boo hoo), but I’m still not low carb because I can eat corn, rice, quinoa, etc. I’ll try to throw in more low carb ideas because I know you’re not the only one on that type of diet, but I’m a pasta and rice addict so it’s hard ;)
Yum, yum, yum! Cheese & pasta my favorite!
Hi! You definitely can’t go wrong with cheese and pasta, which is why it shows up in a couple recipes this week. Thanks so much, and have a nice weekend!
Yes I do read your blog and pin dish’s I’ll be trying. Have a wonderful weekend. Keep up the great menu plan’s. I sure enjoy them.
Thank you so much, Michelle! I hope you have a great weekend too!

Hi! I speak for all of your faithful readers who appreciate the time you put into the blog, and the great photos and recipes. Come on, readers, show some love!
P.S. The cube steak recipe is REALLY good!!
Thank you, Sheri! It’s nice to hear from you, and I really appreciate your kind words. When no one comments, I start to wonder if I actually have any faithful readers! This truly brightened my day :)
The Bacon Gouda Alfredo and Slow Cooker Stroganoff look fabulous. Dinner menu, week number 26 looks like it could be a favorite. My kids and husband help cook a lot because I’m not able too some weeks. Illness, no whining. It is what it is. Anyway, these kind of menus are great! Thank you for your hard work.
Now I’m going to have to go back and look at #26 to see what was in it! That sounds like a long time ago ;) I’m sorry to hear that you are dealing with an illness, but what a blessing that your husband and kids help take care of you. Thanks very much for your note, and I hope to keep bringing you recipes you and your family enjoy!

I’m here! *waving hello* I’ve just recently found you (from someone’s Pinterest board, if I remember correctly), and am loving these menus! I have a fatally picky husband, so I have to mix-and-match and edit them, but I love having a starting point to build from!
Hi, Amy! I’m so glad you found me! I have very picky kids, but I’m lucky that my husband will eat just about anything. I’m thrilled if you even find a couple recipes you’d like to try each week. Thanks for your message :)
