Weeknights are busy but you still have to eat, right? That’s where Midweek Menu comes in! This week’s dinner plan has four comfort food recipes that will fill your tummy and brighten your spirits.
Happy Wednesday, friend! I am hard at work today with new recipe creations, writing, photographing, and a big new project that will launch this summer. I’ve also been tackling a few projects around the house.
With so many “plates spinning” I’ve found myself not being as good as I should when it comes to making dinner. I’ve neglected planning out at least a couple of meals for me and Mr. SS and it’s actually made me a bit frustrated.
But, today, I’m solving that problem. I’ve put together a menu that has something fresh, a favorite main dish, a super easy side dish, and a little something sweet.

What Makes Midweek Menu #136 Special?
- The Green Bean Salad is packed with fresh flavors. It can be made ahead of time and actually gets better when it chills in the fridge. It also makes a great lunch salad with the addition of leftover chicken or tuna.
- Meatloaf made in a muffin tin is a genius hack for portion control! These little meatloaves also freeze beautifully so you can enjoy one when you need a quick dinner.
- Potato Wedges are a nod to everyone’s favorite french fries. And since they are made in the air fryer, with very little oil, you don’t have to feel guilty about having them.
- For a sweet finish, this Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is a perfect treat. I make a whole loaf, slice it in half and freeze for a later date. This quick bread is so yummy for breakfast or toasted with a smear of cream cheese for a snack.
