Tomorrow is the first Monday of the month. Time for a menu plan! Only this time, instead of posting menus a week at a time, I’m posting my complete monthly menu plan for March 2013. After finding this magnetic calendar system, I can quickly see all the meals I’ve planned for the entire month, and now, you can, too.
The advantage to this system is that I can plan ahead, preparing meals that fit our schedule. Of course, at our house, that means getting out the Crock-Pot for busy afternoons!
Please feel free to pick and choose what works for your family from this list.
Week One – This week, I’ve included a Crock-Pot meal, along with a day for eating out. Of course, my rotisserie style roasted chicken plays a prominent role, since I’ll need the chicken meat for chicken and wild rice the next day.
March 1 – Crock-Pot Beef with Egg Noodles
March 2 – Kielbasa and Fried Potatoes
March 3 – Biscuits & Gravy
March 4 – Eating Out
March 5 – Hearty Steak Pie
March 6 – Lasagna Roll-Ups
March 7 – Roasted Chicken
March 8 – Chicken & Wild Rice Soup
March 9 – Sloppy Joes
Week Two – No Crock-Pot meals this week. It’s the “calm before the storm,” when we’re gearing up for a play performance.
March 10 – Homemade Pizza
March 11 – Chicken Fajitas
March 12 – Salmon Salad (Note: This recipe calls for cooking the salmon on the grill. In our neck of the woods, it will still be quite cold, so I’ll simply put the salmon on a baking stone and set it under the broiler for about 5 – 8 minutes instead.)
March 13 – Broccoli Soup with No-Knead Bread
March 14 – Kung Pao Chicken with Egg Rolls
March 15 – Chicken Squares
March 16 – Calzones with Breadsticks and Salad
Week Three – Three Crock-Pot meals this week. Yep. It’s gonna be hectic!
March 17 – Creamy Crock-Pot Chicken Alfredo
March 18 – Meatloaf
March 19 – Jambalaya
March 20 – Creamy Beef & Noodles
March 21 – Spaghetti & Meatballs
March 22 – Potato Soup & Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
March 23 – Crock-Pot Chicken Soft Tacos
Week Four – Again, super gigantic busy. The girls will be performing in a play, which means a visit from grandparents! To keep things from getting stressful (and to keep me out of the kitchen!), here’s what I’ve come up with.
March 24 – Fried Fish & Potatoes
March 25 – Chicken & Noodle Casserole
March 26 – Poppy Seed Chicken with Rice
March 27 – Easy Beef Stroganoff
March 28 – Cheesy Chicken & Rice Bake
March 29 – Fried Chicken
March 30 – Tacos
March 31 – Easter! We’ll be eating a nice, juicy ham.
