Simple Sheet Pan Dinners

Weekly Dinner Meal Plan: Dec 10 – 14, 2018

A 5 night, Weekly Dinner Meal Plan that’s easy, seasonal, and healthy. Plus, a weekly treat you won’t want to miss.

This week’s dinner ideas are bright and fresh; packed with healthy protein, and colorful veggies. All made simply… on a sheet pan.

When I keyed in the title for this week’s meal plan, “Dinner Meal Plan // Week 50,” I have to be honest… it caught me off guard. How can we be just shy of two weeks left in the year? You can’t see me, but I’m shaking my head. Can we stretch out these last three weeks, please?

It’s December and I, like you, most likely have a full list of to-dos. It’s the holidays, after all!

The last thing on most of our minds this week is most likely… dinner.

But we have to eat and feed our people. So… dinners need to be simple, easy, and most especially, healthy! With that goal in mind, I’m opting for sheet pan dinners.

And… if you’ve read this column before, you know we always include a treat. This week — there are two. One is truly a treat, the other is delicious enough to be a treat. For us… a breakfast “treat”.

Here’s to another week of simple meals made easy at home… on a sheet pan.

It’s what for dinner this week!

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

Have an awesome week!

Thursday: Sheet Pan Jambalaya

“Admittedly, this is not a classic jambalaya recipe. But it does capture the ingredients and flavors that are characteristic of jambalaya—bell peppers, tomatoes, onions, sausage, shrimp, rice, and Creole seasoning. It’s just a chunkier, fresher take on the classic.” And let’s face it, mid-week sheet pan cooking is just plain easy!
