Weekly Menu Planning - April 2018

MidwesternerTT | Mar 25, 201806:24 AM     388

Let’s use this thread to share concise weekly dinner menus for each week in April. Will you be cooking vegetarian with the Cookbook of the Month (COTM) crowd from A MODERN WAY TO EAT: 200+ SATISFYING VEGETARIAN RECIPES (THAT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL AMAZING), by Anna Jones? Or will you be inspired by the selected Dish of the Month (DOTM)? Voting is choosing okonomiyaki, or Dutch babies or no-knead bread.

My own spring cleaning goal this month is to look through my spices, last fully reorganized 4 years ago, and toss the ancient, never-used ones. Are you improving your cooking space this month?

We all know plans can change, so it’s fine (practically expected) when your week gets rearranged from your posted plan. With plan in hand it’s so much easier to flex/adapt, not just face the open freezer at 5 PM with a blank stare. You may choose to report actuals for the prior week to share ideas with others. It's helpful if you can include your location and how many people you are feeding. Links to recipes are always appreciated, and sources help.

The March discussion is still available for reporting the last week and follow-ups.
