Next Week's Meal Plan: 5 Cozy Comfort-Food Dinners - Next Week's Meal Plan
From The Kitchn - November 4, 2017

How do you divide dinner chores at home? Most weekdays I cook dinner and my husband clears the dishes, puts away leftovers, and washes dishes in return. This is purely logistical based on our work schedulesmine is consistent and his is erratic. We both contribute to grocery chores, but as the primary cook, meal planning usually falls on my shoulders.

This week my husband has a rare open week and after he had three very specific requests for dinner, I passed the meal planning responsibility off to him for the rest of the week. What's so different about a meal plan created by my husband? There's more meat and inhibited cravings for comfort food. Here's the cozy comfort food we are cooking for the week ahead.

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

Monday: Cubano Sheet Pan Sliders and Tater Tots

The roast pork comes from either a roasted loin or pulled pork from the slow cooker. This week it's the former, leftover from Sunday's dinner.

Tuesday: One-Skillet Cheesy Beef and Macaroni

Wednesday: 30-Minute Chicken Posole

Thursday:Easy Balsamic Glazed Steak Tips & Mushrooms

Friday: Pizza Delivery with Jersey Salad
