Lenten Friendly Recipes

Weekly Dinner Meal Plan: Mar 11 – 15, 2019

We are well into March and the market produce bins are filled with fresh seasonal veggies. While the days may still be chilly where you live, spring is coming and it’s time to lighten and freshen up weeknight dinners.

RELATED: What to Cook in March

This week’s dinner meal plan features some Lenten friendly weeknight ideas. Monday is a vegetarian Loaded Baked Sweet Potato and Friday is a shrimp dish served over pasta. In fact, every week between now and Easter we’ll schedule a seafood recipe for those of you observing Lent.

And… St. Patrick’s Day is next Sunday. A time I look forward to all year long. So… I’m adding one of my favorite, simple St. Patrick’s Day inspired dinners on Thursday, Irish Pub Dublin Coddle. Served with or without Irish Soda Bread. 

A week of Lenten friendly recipes — it’s what’s for dinner this week.

Have a great week everyone!

Be sure to print your dinner planner at the bottom of this post.
