For years I’ve done Weekly Menu Plans but starting last month, I moved to a Monthly Menu Plan instead. So this one is my second monthly menu plan. Originally I thought I might include them in my weekly Monday Magic email newsletter (sign up here if you’re not getting it!) but I’ve decided I wanted them in a place where you could access them over and over for your menu inspiration. Soon I hope to have them available on their own page here on my blog so you can find them whenever you want.
For now, I’m still mainly sharing dinner ideas. We’re kind of a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants method family when it comes to breakfast and lunch. And we’re actually kind of boring as we have a few favorites that we just rotate through most weeks.
When it comes to dinner, I want to remind y’all that I don’t cook every day. I often include a leftover or out-to-eat night at least once or twice a week depending on our schedule. I also use a lot of meals from Dream Dinners so for those I’ll try to find a similar recipe online to share with you since I don’t have those recipes. As I mentioned last month, this Monthly Menu Plan format may be changing and adjusting a bit as I go along but I’d also love to hear YOUR feedback on what you want to see too!
So now, let’s get on to the Monthly Menu Plan for March!
