30 Dinner Theme Nights for a Month of Meals

Planning dinner for your family day in and day out can be a total chore. So, why not make it a little more fun by trying Dinner Theme Nights?!

Dinner theme nights are easy to plan; simply assign each night of the week (or month) a specific theme. Then, choose a meal that fits the theme. You can have regular weekly themes or rotate lots of different theme night ideas if you prefer. It's a great way to spark your meal-planning creativity and have some fun with dinner, too!

Looking for dinner theme night ideas for your family? I have 30 dinner themes and a great way to include more meatless meals in your rotation. Keep reading to find out how!

Meatless Meals Made Easy

I like to include at least one meatless meal in our weekly rotation, but finding ideas that my kids like isn't always easy. That's why I am so happy I discovered the new Raised & Rooted™ Nuggets on my regular Safeway grocery trip. 

Safeway is my go-to for finding everything I need for family meal time, and using the Safeway mobile app means that I never forget to save. 

If you asked my son what he would like for dinner, 9 times out of 10, the answer would be "nuggets." Raised & Rooted™ Nuggets let me fill that request with familiar flavors and plant-based protein. It's the perfect choice for Meatless Monday!

Raised & Rooted is the perfect pick for our family when it comes to easy meatless meals. With a crispy coating outside and tender, juicy flavors inside, it's something we can all agree on. Served with our favorite dipping sauces or by themselves, these nuggets are a mouthwatering meat alternative. They've quickly become not only one of our Meatless Monday favorites but a regular on Kids' Choice night too!

Click here to try Raised & Rooted™ Nuggets at your local Safeway store and save $1.50 off your purchase of Raised & Rooted Nuggets! You can even save on the Just 4 U app until 10/15!
