Welcome to the Weekly Meal Planner! Whether you work all day and are out of steam when the dinner hour hits, or are fresh out of ideas and in a cooking rut, we are here to make your life easier.
This week, we’ve picked some delicious recipes inspired by take-out favorites like Thai-style chicken wraps, sliders, deli sandwiches and fish sticks. We guarantee these MYOTO (Make Your Own Take-Out) dishes will be even more delicious when you make them at home. Bonus: Since you’re in charge, your MYOTO dishes can be healthier than their restaurant-made counterparts – they’ll also be less expensive, too!
Lunch: Artichoke Fritatta is a delicious spring meal that can be made ahead and enjoyed cold, room temperature or hot. Plus, leftovers keep very well so you can enjoy later in the week.
Dinner: Butternut Squash and Parsley Penne is a hearty Meatless Monday meal. If you can find pre-cut squash at the market, meal prep is made even easier.
Snack: You’ll never buy prepared pico de gallo again once you see how easy it is when you make these bright and flavorful Veggie Delight Nachos.
Lunch: You can use any leftover grilled veggies you have – just make sure to stack ‘em high – to assemble this delicious Great Grilled Vegetable Sandwich.
Dinner: Who doesn’t love sliders? Make everyone happy tonight when you serve Bloody Bull Burgers with Crunchy Ketchup.
Dessert: No one will be able to resist (we dare ya!) Cheesecake Brownies.
Lunch: Bratwurst Reubens with Sweet ‘n Sour Red Cabbage are a creative take on the classic sandwich.
Dinner: Use the white fish of your choice for these family-friendly Crispy Fish Sticks with Parm Cheese and Parsley Caper Sauce.

Dessert: Be creative and use the jam of your choice when you bake these Rainbow Shortbread Sticks.
