Menu Plan Week of April 1

How to Create a Menu Plan - Tips for creating a menu plan

I have a printable weekly menu plan and shopping list that you can download to make organizing your meal plan and grocery shopping a little easier. I will be adding more printables in the next week, so you have more options to choose from.

This week I will be taking advantage of the leftovers from Easter dinner. If you need help using up your leftovers, I have roundups of Leftover Ham Recipes, Leftover Roast Recipes, and Leftover Mashed Potato Recipes.

Monday – I am going to make a twist on Shepherd’s Pie using ham and a white sauce. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Tuesday – I am going to use the leftover asparagus from our Easter dinner to make Asparagus Quesadillas.

Wednesday – I’ll use the ham bone to make Ham and Potato Crock Pot Soup with a garden salad.

ThursdayRapidly Roasted Herb Crusted Chicken with Vegetables

Friday – Pizza Hashbrown Casserole – recipe to be shared soon! I’ll serve it with a garden salad.

SaturdayCream of Caramelized Onion and Cauliflower Soup and Garden Salad

SundayRapidly Roasted Herb Crusted Chicken with Vegetables. I will use the chicken bones to make broth in my slow cooker on Sunday night while I sleep and have a jump start on the next week.

If you need help getting started making a menu plan, you can read how I create menu plans, which includes mention of various methods I have used in the past. Another tool that is available to help is ZipList. I created a video, showing how I use ZipList to save recipes, make meal plans, and create shopping lists.
