Monthly Meal Plan

Inspired by Jennifer at Hybrid Rasta Mama, I decided to take the plunge and make a meal plan for the entire month of June (with the exception of weekends because they're always weird). Thanks to this handy list, I can look at a week ahead of time and know what I need to shop for based on what I've already decided we're having. Yeah, well, we'll see how well this works out...

June 1: Oven fried cod, baked potatoes, steamed broccoli
June 2: Pasta and bean salad (I made that up.)
June 3: Chicken Pot Pie
June 4: Wings (I know this because we'll have company.)
June 6: Spanish Beef and Rice, salad
June 7: Koushari
June 8: Curry with rice (in some form)
June 9: Fish, baked potatoes, vegetable (Hey, it makes sense.)
June 10: Pasta, salad, garlic bread
June 13: Homemade veggie burgers (never made them before), homemade french fries, kale chips, salad
June 14: Stir fry over noodles
June 15: Spanish rice, Homemade tortillas, "Mexican" black bean mixture
June 16: Shrimp scampi
June 17: Hot dogs, Sauerkraut, Mashed Potatoes, Salad
June 20: Rotisserie Chicken, Rice Pilaf, Green Beans (On Monday's Whole Foods has a fantastic a.k.a. antibiotic/hormone free chicken for $7!)
June 21: Roasted Veggies, which may include potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, garlic, onions, brussel sprouts, asparagus
June 22: Bean sautee over rice
June 23: Meatloaf, baked potatoes, salad
June 24: Salmon, Barley Pilaf, Artichokes?
June 27: Pasta, salad
June 28: Steak, asparagus, homemade french fries
June 29: Oven rice and lentil pilaf, salad
June 30: Curry over rice (in another form.)

Of course this is subject to change, but it is a nice thought to think I won't have to think about dinner for a while, yes?


  1. I like to have the list of dinners for the week, but then shift them around as necessary. No menu plan has ever survived an entire week in my house without modifications!

  2. I'm impressed! That one week meal plan I wrote over the weekend? I haven't made single thing on it yet!

  3. I haven't made meal plans since before Heidi was born (tee hee) so we shall definitely see how this works! :) I am such a control freak though I'm afraid that "moving things around" might send me into a tizzy haha.

  4. Sheesh! I'm also quite impressed! I wish I were so organized! I usually go to the grocery store each week and then walk around in there for a while like, "uuuuuuuuh??" :-)

  5. I'll probably still be doing that Kirsten cause I haven't made any lists or anything and even if I do, I'll probably forget them! Although I might just bring my calendar along with me haha :)

  6. dude! this is awesome! i might copy a few things here and make my own....:-)

  7. I secretly wrote this for you Eden. Maybe.
