My husband does all the dishes in our house. Which is fantastic, except for when he’s out of town and then not only do I have to make dinner, but I also have to do the dishes too.

So when he occasionally travels for work, you better believe I pick meals that use as few dishes as possible so that when dinner is done, I can get everything cleaned up as quickly as possible.

He probably wonders why I don’t do the same when he’s doing the dishes.

Welcome to This Week’s Meal Plan

Planning my weekly meals is a habit I enjoy. Since I’m frequently asked by friends and family what I’m cooking for dinner each week, I thought it’d be useful to share my weekly meal plan here. Whether you’re just learning to meal plan and looking for a real-life example of how this works or you’re an old pro on the hunt for inspiration, here’s a peek at how I’m feeding my family this week.

This is the easiest little quiche on the planet and, as someone who doesn’t even really love quiche, I could eat this every day. Sauté the onions, whisk in the other ingredients, and pour it in the crust. Done and done!

I am obsessed with these sandwiches — they might be my very favorite in the whole world. I make them every time we have company, but they’re easy enough for any day of the week.
