Has your mind stopped producing ideas for what to make for dinner? Mine has. This week I have made some cards to help me gather ideas for those open the fridge, “What to make for dinner.. hmmm…” moments. These cards have complete shopping lists on them so they not only help me think of what to make for dinner, but help me plan ahead and save money at the grocery store by buying what I actually need. Before you shop, pull several cards out and write your shopping list of the items you don’t already have. You will be surprised what you do have and can save money that way.
In this collection, there are 32 recipe cards that have an idea and recipe for dinner. These cards are not all inclusive with sides, dessert and drinks but they are a start to get dinner on the table. Some of these cards can be a meal in itself, like the Fresh Basil Pasta, but the Navajo Flat bread recipe needs a pair, like Navajo Tacos or Honey Butter scones. So if you pull that card, remember to add your other ingredients to the list. Use these as your little dinner helpers, not your full meal plan.
Click Below on each of the 8 pages to Download all 32 printable recipe card meal plans with shopping lists for FREE and you will have no more “What to make for dinner moments.” I laminated mine so that I can use them side by side with me in the kitchen and not worry about destroying them.

You make it so easy for me!
None of the links are working now> 🙁 I like the idea though!
They are working on our end, have you tried getting them again? Maybe something was down temporarily? What does the message say?
I love this idea! Is there a template?
Hi Katie, I just got to putting the template in the folder, Check out the next comment reply for details. Thanks for your interest and sorry it took a second reminder to get it done! It must have been a busy summer.
How do you access the dropbox to get the template? I love the recipes and would love to add my own to the template since I keep my recipes grouped on rings.
Thanks Missy. There is a link within the post. That will give you the InDesign template. Hope that helps!
Is there a template you would be willing to share so that we can add our own personal recipes? This is a great idea!!
You bet Diana, I will put it in the folder now. I used InDesign to make the template. If you have Adobe InDesign, you will be able to modify it. I added it to the Dropbox with the recipes. Enjoy!
Just tried your link but it just throws up a bunch a funny symbols and coding. any way I could get the template emailed? Thanks
Great recipes! Would like to get the template if possible. Unable to download.
Hi Bonnie. Recipe PFD Template now is in the folder. Let me know how it goes. If you want to e-mail me your recipes, I will add them to the collection. Thanks for reading. email@example.com
I love this idea and I love your receipes. I can not get them to print thought. I go to print and nothing happens. I have checked everything on my printer and other things will print. I have saved them on my computer, I see them just fine. Will you send them to me in an email maybe?
Thank you for this! I recently bought a photo album large enough to hold 4×6 photos and bought 4×6 index cards to write my recipes on. For meal planning I can go thru my cards, pick out what I want for main dish, side dish, breads, lunch, etc and put them into my album for that week’s (or month’s) meal planner.
Your template was just what I needed! Thank you so much!!!
Hi! I’m just finding this and was wondering if there is anyway to still get these recipe cards? I love this Idea.
Yes. Here is the link.
I’m unable to open the templates. is there another link?
Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The file name must have been changed. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/11dmiq97rnoeh5a/AABk4ViIjPoP3HmPCQ4qFB8za?dl=0
