 We survived the first month of school! My boys are exhausted. I’m exhausted. The last thing I want to think about after a busy day is what I’m going to make for dinner! If the school year has you running from place to place and always on the go, this weekly meal planner printable can really help you to keep dinnertime organized, even if the rest of your life is a bit chaotic.

Weekly Meal Planner Printable for Busy Families

There is nothing worse than 5 p.m. rolling around and realizing that you don’t have any plans for dinner. I’ve put together this weekly meal planner printable so that you can spend one day (I prefer Sunday afternoon) and plan out all of the meals for the week.

There is a place to list the things you need to buy, as well as the preparation that will be involved with each meal. For example, if you need to get some chicken out of the freezer or cut up some veggies in advance, you can list those tasks under “to-do” so you can see what is coming up each day.

And personally, our family always plans for a pizza night! Mama needs a break! Friday night is typically pizza and game night at our house. This allows us to wind down and talk about the exciting things that happened throughout the week.

 So there’s always one brand of frozen pizza I put on my shopping list to make this night possible: Virtuoso Pizza by Dr. Oetker is a great and delicious choice for those nights when you want to take a break from spending long hours in the kitchen and just be able to spend time with your family. What I love about this brand in particular is that they use quality ingredients and have a variety of flavors that my family enjoys, including two types of crusts, Thin + Crispy and Classic Crust. My boys loved the pepperoni and my husband and I enjoyed the Mediterranean Style Chicken pizza. Yum! We also can’t wait to try the Margherita flavor.

Other Classic Crust flavors include Kale & Bacon with Ricotta and Vegetable & Goat Cheese. Plus, Virtuoso Thin + Crispy comes in nine yummy flavors. With so many different flavors to choose from, your family will never get bored of having the same thing! All Vituoso pizzas are made with nutritious ingredients such as unique blends of cheeses, fresh-picked veggies and flavorful meats.

We like to pair our Virtuoso Pizza by Dr. Oetker with a green salad and some fresh fruit for a balanced meal that will keep my “always hungry” boys full! But don’t forget dessert! These marshmallow brownies are our favorite!
