Monthly Meal Plan 1

I have recently decided to make my meal plans a month at a time, instead of weekly, because I felt like I was make the same thing over and over again. Ever feel like that? Luckily, thanks to pinterest, I have found several successful & tasty recipes to add to my personal collection, and I am able to come up with a great monthly plan. Here is a list of what I made last month, with links included to their recipe. Good luck & happy cooking!


Chicken Parmesan Wraps

Cauliflower & Sweet Potato Soup

Cafe Rio Sweet Pork

Chicken Pot Pie

Sloppy Joes

Zesty Crock Pot Chicken


Vegetable Soup & Jiffy Cornbread

Fish Sticks (frozen)

Dirty Rice & Cabbage (boxed rice from ALDI called “New Orleans Dirty Rice” & add browned ground beef)

Orange Chicken & Fried Rice


Homemade Chicken Nuggets

Pepperoni Roll

Black Bean Soup

Taco Ring

BBQ Chicken Salad

Griddle/Grilled Sandwiches (Ham & Cheese, Avocado & Cheese, Fried Egg, etc.)

Sweet & Spicy Chicken & Biscuits

There are 20 ideas here, so I know that’s not a whole months worth. But we do eat out a couple times a month, we eat a lot of leftovers, and have Brinner (breakfast for dinner) almost once a week. (It’s a great Sunday meal that my husband can be in charge of. He makes THE BEST french toast!)

Also, I didn’t include many side dishes because there are several options. I usually include a veggie, like roasted veggies or when I am short on time, canned veggies topped with butter, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder.

Stayed tuned for more monthly meal plans!

    Does your husband eat leftovers for lunch or have you found another cost-effective plan for his lunches?

      Erin, yes he does eat leftovers thankfully, and that has been the best thing for us. If there are no leftovers available, I send him with a can of soup or a lean cuisine that I stock up on when they go on sale for $2 or less. They have THE BEST fajita style spring rolls that are so delicious it will blow your mind. 😉
