Foolproof weeknight meal plan is back on Smells Like Home! 5 30(ish) minutes meals + 1 dessert! A weekly series coming at you every Saturday!Foolproof Weeknight Meal Plan Week 1

What feels like ages ago – or you know, 3 years ago – I started a weekly meal plan series. Each meal plan included 5 weeknight meals, all under 45 minutes to prep and cook, as well as a dessert. It was a super fun series to put together and I know a lot of you loved it.

But it got to the point where I started running out of quick weeknight meals to continue to add without repeating any in the series.

Well. I’ve decided to revamp this series and I’m now including recipes from some of my blogger friends! Each week, there will be 4 recipes from my friends plus 1 meal and a dessert from Smells Like Home. I’m so excited about this you guys!!

Let’s get started, shall we??
