Weekly Menu Planning – April 2019

MidwesternerTT | Mar 27, 201906:33 AM     345

Let’s use this thread to share concise weekly dinner menus for each week in April. 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.

Will your meals feature your Spring favorite fruits and vegetables (mine: rhubarb and asparagus – but not together!) Are you looking forward to an Easter ham, devilled eggs and chocolate bunny ears, plus recipes featuring leftovers? Or preparing your home, hosting (and cooking!) a Passover sedar? Will Spring Break travel take you somewhere new and inspiring. Or will you spend extra time at home, perhaps cooking with kids? Any bets on those from “up North” here: Will one final snow storm have us breaking out the hot-cocoa, marshmallows (Peeps) and movies?

We all know plans can change, so it’s fine (practically expected) when your week gets rearranged from your posted plan. You may choose to report actuals for the prior week to share ideas with others.

If you are looking for inspiration or challenge in the kitchen, tell us what you’ll be trying with the Cookbook of the Month (COTM) crowd from SALT, FAT, ACID, HEAT by Samin Nosrat. Or maybe the selected Dish of the Month (DOTM) will make an appearance at your table.

The March discussion is still available for reporting the last week and follow-ups. https://www.chowhound.com/post/weekly...
