I can’t believe June is already here! In just a few short weeks, my kids will be presenting projects to 4-H judges…yes, we have an early fair in our county, but I will be thankful that the projects are done at the beginning of the summer. With the busy fair prep in mind, I’ve included recipes in this monthly menu plan that are both easy to prepare and highly likely to be eaten quickly by my kiddos!
June 1 – Steak. I had thawed some of our beef from the freezer, so that made a quick and easy dinner after church. Just pop some potatoes in the microwave, grill the steak while I prepare a light salad, and dinner is done!
June 2 – Chicken & Wild Rice Soup. We had some chicken bones leftover from my last roasted chicken, so I popped some homemade bread in the oven and prepared the soup. Yummy! (Watch for the recipe this month!)
June 3 – Spaghetti & Meatballs. Everybody likes it. ‘Nough said. (Get the meatball recipe here.)
June 4 – Biscuits & Gravy. It’s been awhile since I’ve made breakfast for dinner, and with sewing projects and art class running simultaneously, we need a quick, go-to dinner.
June 5 – Salmon Salad. My mom and dad will be visiting and advising on sewing (doggone those “easy” patterns!). They both love salmon, so we’ll get some going on the grill. Here’s a link for the recipe.
June 6 – Roasted Chicken. I’ll be needing some cooked chicken next week, so it’s time to bring out the roaster!
June 7 – Brats. I’m giving myself a break and making a quick dinner on the grill.
June 8 – Fried Chicken. If you’ve read these menu plans before, you know that this is a hubby favorite! Quick and easy to make after church, too.
June 9 – Tacos. Again, sure to be a crowd pleaser, and quick for mommy to prepare.
June 10 – Chicken Squares. I’ll be using some of my leftover chicken to make these yummy little squares out of crescent rolls. (Don’t have the recipe? I’ll be posting it this month, so stay tuned!)
June 11 – Sloppy Joes. I love all that freezer beef just waiting to turn into quick and easy meals, such as sloppy joes. Add some carrots, and we have a winner!
June 12 – Fried fish and Potatoes. Sometimes I like to fry up a little fish, with potatoes and a fresh veggie on the side.
June 13 – Cheesy Chicken & Rice Bake. You can find the recipe here.
June 14 – Homemade Pizza. Sometimes, I like to give the kids a small ball of dough and let them come up with their own creations. The only rule is that you have to eat whatever you make!
June 15 – I know the menu plan says grilled cheese and chili, but we may splurge and take my husband out for Father’s Day instead.
June 16 – Chicken Fajitas. First day of fair judging, so I need a quick and easy dinner. These fajitas will do nicely.
June 17 – Hamburgers and Hot Dogs. Again, another day of judging requires another quick and easy dinner. Flip on the grill and we’re good to go!
June 18 – Chicken Pot Pie. No projects slated for judging today, so I can take some time and make a family favorite.
June 19 – Creamy Beef & Noodles. I might pair this dinner with easy mashed potatoes. Get the recipe here.
June 20 – Sesame Chicken. Last day of judging, so we’ll enjoy an Asian dish together to celebrate.
June 21 – Calzones. Again, I like to customize these little “pizza pockets” for each member of the family, which ensures that every bite will disappear!
June 22 – Fried Chicken. See above. 🙂
June 23 – Jambalya. Make that “kid-friendly jambalaya,” to be exact!
June 24 – Pork Chops. I’ll marinate these for 30 minutes before turning on the grill and fix some wild rice as a side dish.
June 25 – Tacos.
June 26 – Roasted Chicken.
June 27 – Creamy Crock-Pot Chicken Alfredo. It’s been awhile since I’ve pulled out the Crock Pot, and with hot summer days, it’s a great way to serve a warm meal without turning on the oven. Here’s the recipe.
June 28 – Easy Beef Stroganoff. Love this dish, made from cream of chicken soup and egg noodles.
June 29 – Poppyseed Chicken.
June 30 – Tatertot Casserole.
