Looking for more than just a weekly menu plan?  Try this MONTHLY menu plan!  I’ve put together a plan for this month based upon common meals that we have at my house.

December2014

What if I don’t cook every night?
Awesome!  I don’t either – we often have leftovers 2-3 night/week.  Just take this basic plan, cut out some meals and make leftovers part of your plan!

What if I don’t want a particular meal on a specific night?
Awesome!  Just take this basic plan and swap meals around.

What if I want to see the Excel version?
Awesome!  You can download it here.

What if I don’t eat beef?  Or chicken?  Or pork?
Awesome!  Just take this basic plan, remove the foods you won’t eat and put in foods you will eat.

What if I don’t know how to make that meal?
Awesome!  Here are the links for the recipe that I usually use.

What if we always have pizza on Friday nights?
Awesome!  (Can I come over?)  Just remove my Friday meals and put in pizza.

What if I want to plan for more than just dinner?
Awesome!  Feel free to print this out, write out breakfast & lunch meals.  Or you can edit it in Excel and make it your own!

What if I don’t like your recipe?
Awesome!  Use which ever recipe you normally use and just use this basic plan as a suggestion.

What if I have my own monthly menu plan?
Awesome!  Care to share it?  Share it down below in the comments so that we all can see it and be inspired!

What’s cool about this menu plan?
I tried to have a variety of meals each week – some beef, some chicken, some pasta, some soups.  That way you won’t get too bored.  But there are also plenty of ways to save time when using this menu plan.  Examples:  When prepping chicken at the beginning of the month, make enough for the other recipes and freeze it for future use.  When making ground beef, brown 2-3 times the normal amount and freeze that.  It makes it super quick to pull meals together!

    Love the stuffed french bread …we have made it 2 times so far. This second time we did it we used ground turkey instead of beef, and instead of celery we did green pepper. My 2yr old hates veggies but when we made this both ways he loved it…of course he has to dip everything in ranch 🙂
