Save Time & Money on Easy Dinner Recipes with Weekly Meal Planning

We have KUMA Meal Plan for 17 ready for you. The sun is starting to really shine so we’ve made an easy menu that’s great for the nice weather. We’ll be making all sorts of things such as crispy chicken katsu with curry, a traditional Italian spaghetti carbonara, juicy pork chops in mushroom sauce, and more!

We strongly recommend meal planning or to meal prep. It’s a great way to make your weeknight cooking and grocery shopping easier, but also save time and money! You’ll find yourself making fewer impulse purchases and utilizing the ingredients you often already have.

As always our recipes and grocery shopping list are intended for 2 persons but the ingredients can easily be added up if you cook for more people.

Monday: Chicken Katsu with Rice and Curry Sauce

Tuesday: Italian Pasta Salad with Ham & Zucchini Patties

Wednesday: Traditional Italian Spaghetti Carbonara

Thursday: Pork Chops in Mushroom Sauce with Baked Potatoes

This week’s dinner plan is bound to not disappoint! We are making a good mix of some of our favorite dishes. We begin on Monday with chicken katsu which is a lovely crispy chicken with curry sauce and rice. Tuesday we are making a creamy Italian pasta salad with ham and a side of small zucchini patties. Wednesday it’s time for a true classic when we make our traditional and authentic spaghetti carbonara recipe. This pasta dish is so amazing yet simple!
