April Monthly Meal Plan

Sharing is caring!

Another monthly meal plan is here. April is a pretty calm month in our house. We have one birthday (the hubby!) and not much else. That means we’ll be eating at home a lot so I needed to come up with a simple plan for the month. You’ll see my entire monthly meal plan below. I hope you find some new ideas for your meal plan in this post.

I don’t plan our breakfasts and lunches. Our children are 12 and 14 and are pretty independent with these meals. I just make sure we have basic supplies on hand so they can help themselves.
