Monthly Menu – April 2021

“Gee Sarah, it’s been AGES since you posted your family’s menu!”

Yes, yes it has… and here’s the reason. My kids and husbands are very avid skiers. They live for ski season, they talk about it all summer long. My kids race for Blue Mountain Racing, so they’re at practice every Saturday and Sunday from the beginning of December to early March. Now let’s add into that my husband not travelling like he normally does, so he and our oldest son have committed to skiing every single day that Blue Mountain is open. Every day. Add onto that a weeknight practice, middle school ski team… so basically every weeknight for 3 months I really had no idea how many people I was feeding until everyone got home from school and the kids decided if they were skiing that night. So I kept my kitchen stocked with meals I knew everyone liked and just flew by the seat of my pants. (and yes, I know this sounds nuts but it works for us).

So now it’s spring and I’m trying to get back in the groove of menu planning. I went through my stack of recipes I want to try, added in a few favorites, and this is a basic list of what we’re having to eat this month. I’ll let you know next month which ones were hits and misses.

Chicken Nuggets/Mac & Cheese – if you shop at Costco, don’t sleep on the Just Bare (green bag) brand of chicken nuggets. They taste just like Chic-fil-A nuggets and I hear they’re amazing in an air fryer!
Pork chops
Spaghetti & Meatballs
Beef tacos
Chicken Marsala
Sheet pan salmon
Pork tenderloin
Sausage & tortellini
Roast beef
Chicken salsa stew
Flank steak
Chicken with artichokes
Beef Bourguignon
Make your own pizza

What’s been on your menu lately?

    I am definitely going to look for those chicken nuggets! I love making ribs in the crockpot, super easy.

      I’ve also heard that the nuggets are best in an air fryer (but we don’t have one).

    French’s Crunchy Onion Chicken. The recipe is on the back of the container. I cut chicken breasts into tenderloin-size pieces. They bake perfectly in 20 minutes, and I have never once heard a complaint from any of my picky eaters. I just had cold leftovers in my lunch today. Yum-my!
