5 Weeknight Dinners that Make Delicious Leftovers

This meal plan is written in partnership with Perdue. 

This month, we welcome back Marta Rivera for more of her meal plans. Marta is a trained chef, mom of twins and Army wife, and a Simply Recipes recipe tester and developer!

The closer to winter we get, the more I’m looking for recipes that will provide warmth (inside and out) and can carry over to the next day’s lunch. I mean, have you ever been upset about going to the fridge and discovering you have leftovers for lunch? Yeah, me either.

Most of the meals in this week’s plan become great money-savers because they provide leftovers for tomorrow’s midday meal. Well, as long as you have a family that can restrain themselves (unlike mine, we like to eat, so sometimes I have to double the recipe)!

If you’re not keen on lunchtime leftovers, each recipe in this week’s meal plan freezes spectacularly well to use for future meals. Go ahead, thank your future self for being one step ahead of the game!
