May Monthly Weeknight Meal Plan

Welcome to our very first monthly weeknight meal plan. We’ve been weekly meal planning for about a year now so it is time to make the switch to an entire month at once. 

It was not as hard as I thought it would be and I’m glad I’ve done it. There is much less stress involved when we have a plan and we work that plan. Of course circumstances and events will arise and we may have to stray from time to time but for the most part, we will stick to the plan. It is important to plan ahead for special events, holidays and birthdays which could potentially affect your meal plan and grocery budget.

May has three holidays widely celebrated; Cinco de Mayo (5th), Mother’s Day (14th) and Memorial Day on the 29th. Memorial Day is the unofficial kick off of summer which means June will bring even more salads and fresh vegetables to our meal plan.

Weekends will only have one meal planned normally. Leftovers are essential to get through the weekends so be sure to save those in your refrigerator! Everyone deserves a day off! The exception is holidays and special occasions normally celebrated at home.
