Monthly Meal Plan – April 2011

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on April 4, 2011


It’s that time again!

I really liked how I had the lists for New Recipes to Try and Old Favorites. It’s enough of a plan and gives structure to dinner time, but I really appreciate the flexibility of it!  There were 6 recipes that I never did get made in March, so we’ll carry them over to April :)

Here’s the list!

New Recipes

  • Apple Chicken Meatballs
  • Pizza Loaves
  • Black Bean Chili
  • Minestrone Casserole
  • Lasagna Buns
  • Kale and Black-eyed Pea Soup
  • Apricot Chicken
  • Spaghetti and Meatball Pie
  • Tabbouleh with Quinoa
  • Pan Fried Tilapia
  • Mini Pizza Pockets
  • Slow Cooker Confetti Chicken
  • Maple Pecan Caramel Rolls – Breakfast Treat

Old Favorites

Chicken Tortilla Soup and Cranberry Pork Chops links are not working for me.

loaded potato frittata is on my list this month too! i can’t WAIT to try! for some reason I LOVE LOVE tamales but the tamale pie just didn’t do it for me, i really wish it did because buying tamales a few times a month is a BAD expensive habit for me!

Chicken Tortilla Soup and Cranberry Pork Chops links are not working for me, either.

I love the lasagna bun recipe. Are you just going to leave out the dairy for your boys? Since I have a dairy free daughter, I wanted your scoop as to how you were going to do theirs.
