Weekly Menu Planning – April 2021

MidwesternerTT | Mar 28, 202108:27 AM     147

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.

It’s a tough time of year for meal-planning here in the North. There’s lots more daylight, but not yet warmth. And frequent rain / show showers. All of which makes it too early for salad-suppers or grilled meat, but somehow stews/soups don’t appeal either. I’ll be looking at DOTM and COTM as well as here for inspiration. Baking is on my calendar. The jam-packed jam bin in the fridge door and bottomless bin of dried fruits that were all supposed to become fillings for winter baked goods will take some time in the kitchen to use up. Plus clearing space in the freezer to store the cakes/cookies/bars.

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.

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