February 2017 Monthly Menu Plan!

Love is in the air!  Well, maybe not love.  But, then again, maybe it is.  It’s the month of Valentine’s Day!  If that doesn’t inspire good thoughts, then maybe knowing that this is the month of the Super Bowl is something you can love.  No?  Then Groundhog’s Day — is that something that you love?

Well, if you can’t find something to love in February, maybe you can love menu planning!  It’s one of the best way to save money on groceries.  If you know what you’re cooking, then you know what groceries you need to buy.  Only buying what you need will save you money!

We’ve put together this menu plan in hopes that it helps you.  Use the “All Meals” option.  Or just the “Dinners Only” plan.  Open it in Excel.  Or PDF.  The choice is yours!

The Dinner Only Menu:

Available formats:


Its okay if you don’t like these recipes or these ideas – make your own!  Just open the Excel version, delete what you don’t want and keep what you do want!  I have a menu plan that works for my family – you should have one that works for yours!

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 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!  Included 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 don’t like your recipe?
Awesome!  Use whichever 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 kept it simple around the holidays – go into the holiday relaxed and enjoy yourself!

Breakfast & lunch are simple and repetitive while still providing variety.  For dinners, I try to have a lot more variety each week – some beef, some chicken, and some pastas.  That way you won’t get too bored.  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. Check out these easy crockpot instructions for bulk cooking chicken and bulk cooking ground beef. It makes it super quick to pull meals together!

    If I could have my kids just eat three dishes of your delicious sounding dinner menu my life would be easy. Thank you for doing all this work and letting us copy and paste.

      So glad that it’s useful! My boys like most of these meals, but so far, I’ve been blessed with non-picky eaters. That could change as they age though!
