Weeknight Society is a resource for busy people who want to cook a healthy and delicious dinner on the weeknight using real ingredients.



We believe that a family dinner is the most important part of the day.  It doesn't matter who your family is - biological, adopted, friends who are like family, neighbors who spend more time at your house than theirs, girlfriends, or boyfriends.  Sharing a dinner with family builds bonds, strengthens community, and makes everyone stronger.  

We also believe that a good dinner shouldn't take very long to cook.  All of the recipes in the app are designed to be 20-30 minutes from start to finish.  When you download the app, you have access to new menus every week featuring seasonal and delicious recipes. The smart shopping list helps you navigate the grocery store simply and the menu planner keeps all of your recipes in one place for the week.  

Happy dinner.
