🍽️ Meal Planning and Prep Tips
I'm here to share with you recipes to make during the week that aren't hard to make and take little prep. Most feed 4 so if there are just 1 or 2 to feed, you may want to scale down and halve a recipe OR just make a couple of these and enjoy leftovers throughout the week.
Sandwiches are the name of the dinner game this week. You have variety, easy, and delicious all in one hand!
Most of my recipes are easy to make in a short prep time, however I do have some tips to help you with this week's menu!

Any prep that can be done on Sunday (October 2) is called prep day.
- Make the Blueberry Cookies on prep day and store them in the fridge or freezer. Take the amount of cookies you plan to eat 10 minutes before you plan to serve them.
- Make the Boom Boom Sauce on prep day and store in the fridge. You may want to double the recipe as you will be serving french fries and zucchini fries as sides throughout the week.
- You can prep the chicken for the pulled chicken sandwiches on prep day and just reheat at dinner time while the fries are in the air fryer.
- Plan to put the ribs in the slow cooker early in the day, before serving, brush the cooked ribs with your favorite bbq sauce and broil.
Weekly Meal Plan 40
Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets
These bites of Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets are SO delicious and easy to make. You might want to double up the recipe to have leftovers for lunch. Serve them with a side of this tasty Bang Bang Sauce and a green side salad with Italian Vinaigrette.
Quick and Easy Philly Cheesesteak
I love these Quick and Easy Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches. They are super easy to throw together and so delicious. Serve this with a green side salad or a side of Air Fryer Yellow Squash.
Shrimp Broccoli Cavatappi
Applebee's Shrimp and Broccoli with Pasta is lower calorie without losing flavor. Enjoy this with a soft Butternut Squash Roll on the side.
Pulled Chicken Sandwiches
Serve these Pulled Chicken Sandwiches with a side of Air Fryer Zucchini Fries. We like to top these off with dill pickles or Homemade Coleslaw.
Shrimp Po Boy Sliders
Another great small sandwich to love! These Shrimp Po Boy Sliders are made with frozen breaded shrimp and so easy. For a side dish serve with a side of Air Fryer Frozen Fries.
Dessert of the week
Soft Blueberry Cookies
Soft, pillowy, and bursting with blueberries and lemon flavor. These Blueberry Cookies with Lemon Glaze are my signature cookie recipe and my very favorite!
Cocktail of the week
Vanilla Dark and Stormy
If you feel up to a drink this weekend, this Black Cherry Mojito is my pick!
Garlic Scrambled Eggs with Chickpeas
Slow Cooker Baby Back Ribs
