A 7-Day Meal Plan Repeating Favorite Dinners

Why reinvent the wheel? Repeating well-loved dinners is a huge timesaver. Just be sure to note what worked well and what needed some tweaking to get it to your liking. Here are some easy dinners I often make on repeat.

1 / 7
Melt In Your Mouth Pot Roast Exps Scbz1806 35393 E06 28 2b 4

Sunday: Melt-in-Your-Mouth Pot Roast

Slow-simmered and seasoned with rosemary, mustard and thyme, this tender and tasty crock pot roast and potatoes recipe is so easy to make and always a hit. Substitute burgundy or brandy plus a half-cup of water for the broth…the aroma of this English roast recipe is wonderful! —Jeannie Klugh, Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Monday: Egg Roll Noodle Bowl

We love Asian egg rolls, but they can be challenging to make. Simplify everything with this deconstructed egg roll made on the stovetop and served in a bowl. —Courtney Stultz, Weir, Kansas

Tuesday: Cincinnati Chili

Tuesday: Cincinnati Chili

Cinnamon and cocoa give a rich brown color to hearty Cincinnati chili. This dish will warm you up on a cold day. —Edith Joyce, Parkman, Ohio

Wednesday: Grilled Basil Chicken

This cinch of a marinade gives the chicken lots of Italian flavor. Serve the chicken with a tossed green salad and garlic breadsticks, or put slices on a ciabatta roll along with lettuce, tomato and mozzarella cheese for a zesty handheld meal. —Lisa Moriarty, Wilton, New Hampshire
5 / 7

Thursday: Feta Garbanzo Bean Salad

This super quick garbanzo bean salad is a hit with my crowd. If there are any leftovers, which rarely happens, I pile them into pitas for lunches the next day! You can also add grilled chicken or steak to turn it into a hearty main-dish salad.—Judy Doepel, Ballston Lake, New York
6 / 7
Modern Tuna Casserole Exps Thfm19 228112 B09 27 9b 10

Friday: Modern Tuna Casserole

I loved tuna casserole as a kid and found myself craving it as an adult. However, the massive amounts of fat and salt in the traditional recipe were a turnoff healthwise, and it just didn't taste as good as I remembered. I reconfigured the recipe to include more vegetables and the result was delicious. —Rebecca Blanton, St. Helena, California
7 / 7
Mediterranean Shrimp Linguine Exps120872 Sd2232457c08 26 3bc Rms 6

Saturday: Mediterranean Shrimp Linguine

This picture-perfect linguine is a feast for the eyes and, with a hint of heat, a treat for the palate. —Megan Hidalgo, Quarryville, Pennsylvania
