March 2021 Monthly Meal Plan

Sharing is caring!

As we head into a busy month it is so helpful to have a meal plan all set for our whole month. This month I kept our meals simple. I’m relying on easy recipes like curried lentils (which I accidentally put on our list twice!) rice and beans, and quiche. These meals use simple ingredients and are quick and easy to make.

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.
