January 2018 Dinner Meal Plan

dinner meal plan, meal plan, list of simple and inexpensive dinners used for monthly meal plan,
Happy February!  Can you believe that we've already gone through 31 days of 2018?  We've also made it through another month of sticking to the dinner meal plan.  I know that our wallets are so excited that we've been sticking to the meal plans over the last few months.  Here are the dinners that we had planned to make for January.

Having the meals written down in a central location so the whole family can see them is extremely helpful.  Want to make a dry erase calendar of your own?  Read my post DIY Dry Erase Calendar to learn how.  Below is the list of all the dinners planned.  If I have the recipe on the blog, there will be a link to that post.

There you have it.  Hope this helps give you an idea of what to plan for your next dinner.  I try to make simple and fairly inexpensive meals because of being on a tight budget and I don't really like cooking all that much.  What are some of your go to recipes?  I'm always looking for new simple recipes to add to our rotation.
