April 2018 Dinner Meal Plan

dinner meal plan, meal plan, list of simple and inexpensive dinners used for monthly meal plan,
Where has this year gone?  Seems like it just started and not that we are now in May.  We are on a role with stick with our meal plans.  I can really see a difference with our finances by making dinner every night.  Here's the dinners planned for the month of April.

As I've said the past several months, 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.
