March Menu Plan

I told you that I’d try to get out a meal plan for you all this month before the end of the weekend, and I did- but I also realized that I haven’t included many recipes on here that I actually use, so I will be doing a lot of catch-up and make-ahead posts to help build up the recipe archive.

This time around, the meal-idea-making was a big challenge for me.  Not only to plan out a full month of dinners, but March is a super long month- actually just 5 weeks- but it seemed super long when I had to think of all those dinners!

March Menu 2015

The way that I use this calendar is very interchangeable and flexible for me, so I can easily change it up depending on meat sales at various stores, or make changes if something unexpectedly comes up in our schedule: an overnight visit from family, an impromptu dinner out, take-out because I am sick of cooking!… But knowing each week what I will need to buy for a menu, lets me make a really easy grocery list.  I was happy with how well it worked in February, despite some upheaval in my picky-eater’s club.  They haven’t managed mutiny yet, and I think they just may come around evenually!  I have definitely seen some improvements through all those tears…mine and theirs! This a life-changer for me, I know.  I am preaching to myself here a bit, as March, truly is a long month.  Wish me good luck and cooking once again!
