My Planned Monthly Menu

I wrote, a couple of days ago, that I took the month of April off menu planning and, basically, any cooking. I am back on track and created a menu plan on my iPad app, called ‘MealBoard’, starting on May 6 through the 31st. I don’t cook 7 days a week though! I believe in having weekends off! Since I don’t plan meals on the weekend we eat whatever is easy, like peanut butter sandwiches or pancakes, and that’s only if I feel like making it. Sometimes we have leftovers to eat. I do plan Monday through Friday meals though and want to share what this month looks like for us. I only plan dinners, but maybe one day I will plan breakfast and lunch too.

If a recipe sounds good and I haven’t posted it on my blog, let me know and I will share it.
