Menu Tips

Tips for Using This Monthly Menu:

  • Print the menu and keep it visible.
  • Get as many of the ingredients as you can at the beginning of the month.
  • Each week get the fresh ingredients needed.
  • Keep certain staples on hand (baking items, seasonings, etc.)
  • Buy in bulk when possible – Ex. See how many chicken meals you are going to plan, buy at least that much chicken and freeze them in smaller portions.
  • Remember that this is just a guide. Nothing is set in stone. Use what you want to use and skip the rest.

What this will look like:

  • I have the menu on a spreadsheet with the dates, menu item, and either a brief description or a link to the online recipe.
  • For menu items like Grilled Chicken, I did not include a recipe. If you have questions about anything on the menu that doesn’t have an explanation, please contact me.
  • I did not include sides on the menu. I try to keep plenty vegetables, couscous, rice, etc. Just fill in with your favorites.

  1. This is such a great idea and takes the guessing out of what to fix for supper. I see you had black eyed peas and cornbread on the first. We did too along with cabbage 🙂 Thanks so much for linking up at the Unlimited Link Party 96. Shared.

  2. Love this! Especially the links you provide for those of us always in search of new dinner ideas.

  4. Thanks for some great ideas! I’m currently cooking for just two, and stocking my pantry almost from scratch after a move, so I’m trying to get into a routine of planning menus further in advance. I’m used to cooking for at least six and planning only a week in advance! Visiting from Sweet Tea & Friends

    1. I am also cooking for two now. I’ve cut things in half, unless I want leftovers or can freeze them. It was an adjustment, but the grocery bill is down. 😃
