February Menu Plan

After reaping the benefits of monthly menu planning for the first time in January, I’m excited to do it again. Even more exciting, though?  Most of my March menu is already planned by the lovely Tricia over at Once a Month Mom!  I’m partnering with her this month to celebrate her 1 year Blogiversary.  You can read more about what we’re doing here.  Be on the lookout for the February menu at OAMM.  I’ll be purchasing ingredients for that menu all month in preparation for a big cooking day sometime early in March.  Who’s with me?  There will be prizes!

As for what we’ll actually be eating in February (lest we get too far ahead of ourselves)…

Breakfasts – a rotation of breakfast sandwiches, eggs (fried/scrambled/omelets) with toast or muffins, pancakes, waffles, french toast, lazy granola, oatmeal with raisins, and the occasional bowl of cereal with bananas

Lunch Rotation – sandwiches, quesadillas, fresh fruit and veggies, leftovers, snack lunch tray, smoothies

Suppers this week: I’m going to be leaving Thursday morning for Blissdom, arriving back home Sunday afternoon.  Fortunately, I made more of a few things last month for my family to simply heat and eat while I’m gone.

  • 1/31 – leftovers for me, family is at the farm
  • 2/1 – chicken and black bean quesadillas, fruit
  • 2/2 – black bean and ham soup, muffins
  • 2/3 – baked spaghetti, french bread, corn
  • 2/4-2/6 – Mexican lasagna, ziti, turkey pot pie (all in the freezer — they’ll figure it out)
  • 2/7 – Super Bowl Food or chicken strips, fruit and veggies, snacks (whatever we can scrounge up after getting home)

As for the rest of the month, here are my thoughts.  I’ll sort everything out weekly.

Beef – For those of you who remembered that I am out of beef until March?  Well my aunt read that post and they sold us a 1/4 of their beef so we wouldn’t run out.  Yay!




With a few evenings of leftovers and family gatherings, that ought to do it.

  1. Looks like you are on deck for another really yummy month:-)

  2. We’ll miss you while you’re gone1 :>)

  3. I just love looking at your menus for when I’m having a hard time figuring out what to plan for the week! My husband and I were also raised on meat and potatoes, and whenever I get in a recipe slump it seems I can always come here and get a couple of ideas! Thanks!

  4. I consistently do weekly meal planning, but I might just consider doing a monthly meal plan!

  5. I think after looking at 5 granola recipes so far, yours has won me over. I’m making that tonight!

  6. Your menu looks great. I do a monthly menu as well. I would love for you to link up your menu at my site. Everyone can use some new meal inspiration.
