April Menu Plan

Often I get asked "Do you really menu plan for a whole month?" I do menu plan a month at a time because it helps me stay organized and provide healthy homemade dinners for my family. Monthly menu planning is not for everyone but, it works great for us! Each day of the week has a theme at our house. Mexican Monday, slow-cooker Tues., pizza/pasta Wens., leftover Thurs., breakfast Fri., soup/sandwich Sat., and grillout Sun. I leave veggies and fruit blank b/c I like to buy fresh each week. I get what is on sale that week and add it to our meals.
