April Meal Plan

I’m so sorry to be posting this a few days late. The Spring Hop Party kept me baking like a crazy woman the last couple weeks, then Easter kind of sprung up on me too. Since, Nick, our 16 year old, has started his High School baseball season, you will find lots of crockpot and make-ahead meals, it’s makes life so much easier to have a plan.

We have lots of great things happening here! If you missed my giveaways, head on over to enter to win a cute Recipe Box and a Dual Chamber Decorating Bag, perfect for your 2 color icing work. The giveaways end, Monday, so hurry! I also have a fun video series coming up with the What’s New Cupcake and Hello, Cupcake authors, read all the details and let me know what questions you would like answered by the authors of those fun cupcake books. 

Next week, I’m putting together my Weekly Menu Plan, along with a grocery list and a Meal Prep Plan, and a very special cookbook giveaway! I’ll be preparing the whole week’s menu in one day. 

Get your leftover ham or Easter dishes posts ready! I’ll be hosting a party on Wednesday for everyone to share their favorites! (Old posts are okay too) Details below :-)

    You’re SO organized! I’d love to plan out a whole month’s worth of meals. I think I’ll make that my goal for May. :)

      @Christi, I find it’s much easier actually, than just doing a week at a time. And once you have a few months, you can just repeat. I have posted each month for a year, feel free to snag my plans! :-)
      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I love this menu list. I try to plan meals ahead of time and sometimes I get stumped. This certainly opened up a whole new world of menu planning. I am going to print your list so I can use it for reference ;)

    Please let me know where I can find the tortellini Tetrazzini Recipe. I picked up the ingredients from the shopping list but cannot find the recipe’s! HELP! :)

    • Liz says:

      Hi Sharon, I’m not sure what shopping list you are talking about. However, I made the Chicken Tortellini Tetrazzini from the cookbook Make Ahead Meals for Busy Moms.
      If you would like, please email me at hoosierhomemade (at) gmail (dot) com and I’ll email the recipe. It’s pretty long to put in the comments.
