Monthly Meal Plan - 4 weeks of Family Dinner Ideas - February

Having a meal plan ahead of time for dinner really helps me out. So I decided to create a new monthly series where I share my menu plan with you. You can see January's menu plan here.

Monthly Meal Plan - 4 Weeks of Family Dinner Ideas


This month's tip is to make meals that work for you. Sure, I'd love for you to use my menu plan. But we all have different tastes and preferences. So use my menu as a starting place and then insert your own favorite meals as you'd like. I'm always more excited to make a meal if I love it. If I don't enjoy the end result, then making dinner is a chore.

February Dinner Menu Plan


As always I have included the main dish, but for a complete meal, you will need to add your favorite veggies and sides.

Here's a key:
