If you’ve followed me for awhile, you may remember that back in November-ish I mentioned I would stop doing my Weekly Menu Plans. Originally I thought I might include them in my weekly Monday Magic email newsletter (sign up here if you’re not getting it!) but I’ve decided I wanted them in a place where you could access them over and over for your menu inspiration. So I decided to turn it into a Monthly Menu Plan and soon I’ll have them available on their own page here on my blog so you can find them whenever you want.
I’ll be sharing dinner ideas for what we actually eat! At some point I hope to add breakfast and lunch ideas too but I’m taking things one day at a time on this new format. Now, I want to clarify, I don’t cook every day. I often include a leftover or out-to-eat night at least once or twice a week depending on our schedule. I also use a lot of meals from Dream Dinners so for those I’ll try to find a similar recipe online to share with you since I don’t have those recipes. I’m sure this format will be changing and adjusting as I get into the groove of things but I’d love to hear YOUR feedback on what you want to see too!
So now, let’s get on to the Monthly Menu Plan for February!
