April 2017 Monthly Meal Plan

Good morning friends! It’s time for a new monthly meal plan to get us through April! As a homeschooling mama of four, the days can definitely get away from me! And if I’m not careful I’ll find myself standing in the kitchen at 6 PM wondering what we’re going to have for dinner.

I’m so thankful that we only have a couple of more months of school left. I think I can, I think I can…



I figure I can’t be the only one with meal planning phobia around here, so I’m sharing my plan with you guys as well. Hope it helps you out!

Download the April 2017 Monthly Meal Plan:

If you haven’t already used this before, you can click on any of the underlined menu items to get to the recipe.

I like to shop once a week, so I just make a list off of my menu plan and head to the store. I find that I spend less when I shop off of a list, then flying by the seat of my pants. I also end up with ingredients that will actually go together instead of a bunch of random items that don’t amount to anything.

    Your meal plans are always so amazing. I used to meal plan a lot but have just not had the time or energy lately. I DO find that it’s really helpful to have a list of 30 meals that we like so that I can look at it when I’m stuck and pick something I’m in the mood to fix.

      So glad they’ve been helpful! I do the same thing, I don’t always follow them exactly , but at least I have some ideas that I pick and choose from! 🙂

    Thank you so much! Lately I have been running out of ideas for lunches and dinner.
