Monthly Meal Plan – April

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on April 5, 2010


After surveying the freezer and pantry, I discovered that I can almost get through the entire month with what I’ve got.  That being said, we’re going to do a semi-pantry challenge.  Similar to what we did in January, but not quite as hard core this month!  I’m going to reduce our grocery budget a smidge…down to $200 for the month, or $50/week.

That being said…here’s the plan based on what we’ve got in the freezer/pantry:

5- Burgers on the Grill
6- Salsa and Beef Skillet Dinner
7- Waffles and Eggs
8- Grilled Chicken
9-  Slow Cooker Beef Roast with Balsamic Onions (I LOVE this dinner!!!)
10- Tacos
11- Leftovers or Tuna Sandwiches

12- Tuna Noodle Casserole
13- Chicken Pesto Pasta
14- Pork Roast
15- Burritos
16- Chana Masala (Reader Recipe)
17- Spaghetti
18- Leftovers or Tuna Sandwiches

19- Chicken Zucchini Soup
20- Breakfast for Dinner
21- Slow Cooker Beef Roast
22- Lasagna
23- Salsa Chicken (Reader Recipe)
24- Tacos
25- Leftovers or Tuna Sandwiches

26- Pasta Meal
27- We’ll see what’s on sale this week and make a “bargain meal!”
28- Pancakes and Eggs
29- Grilled Chicken
30- OUT for dinner
1- Spaghetti
2- Leftovers or Tuna Sandwiches (I’ve got lots of free or nearly free tuna in the pantry!)
