Quick and Easy Monthly Weeknight Menu for March (2024)

What is a Monthly Meal Plan?

Here is the monthly meal plan and recipes for the month of March. This menu plan includes main dish recipes for easy dinners with a few mentions of side dishes for the entire month.  

I do my menu planning for weeknights only, and Friday nights are usually something quick and easy.  All you need to do is add in the sides, and you are set.  I hope this guide is helpful for you and your whole family. 

I also send out reminders of the weekly menus each Monday in my weekly newsletter. If you would like to receive these reminders, along with other recipes and information, please join here.

Menu Tips

Tips for Using This Monthly Menu:

  • Print or take a photo of the meal plan and keep it visible.
  • It is a great idea to keep certain staples on hand (baking items, seasonings, etc.)
  • Buy in bulk when possible.
  • Look at the monthly meal plan and make a grocery list of all items you can get in advance. If possible, buy all of these items once instead of making multiple grocery trips. (Grocery Delivery is wonderful too!)
  • It is a good idea to keep a master list of the main grocery items you use on a regular basis. Having a ready made grocery shopping list can save you time, and help you remember items you need to purchase.
  • Set aside time at the beginning of the month for meal prep, to prepare food (cut vegetables, divide bulk items and freeze when necessary, etc.)
  • Look at your weekly meal plan over the weekend, and write out your weekly shopping lists so you can make one trip to the grocery store or farmers markets to get fresh produce and other items you will need.
  • Remember that this is just a guide with recipe ideas – use what you want and skip the rest.

  1. What a great meal plan. I don’t cook every day, either, now that it’s just the two of us. I clicked over to the 15 minute cauliflower meal–that looks delicious and so easy! Thank for sharing this post at the Will Blog for Comments #28 linkup. Hope to see you again next week.

  2. Sounds like a delicious month. I too prefer to menu plan by the month… even if I don’t always follow it 100%

  3. Love your menu ideas, Susan! Especially, the quick and easy 30 minute meals. They’re always so helpful and such a time saver on busy nights or when we don’t feel like cooking. Big hugs, CoCo PS: Thank you for the suggestions about the sheet sets. I really appreciate your help!
