February 2020 Monthly Menu Plan


I always meal plan for the entire month using the bulk of ingredients we already have on-hand.  I grocery shop every couple weeks to buy any fresh ingredients we need, along with restocking our produce.  Shopping my pantry, freezers, and basement storage helps to keep our grocery budget low because I typically buy our staples when I see them at their lowest price point.

As recipes are published, they will be linked to in future menu plans. You can also find published recipes under Labels on the right side of this blog or by simply doing a Search.

This month we have Valentine's Day, along with a few special events for our son. I also have a ton of freezer meals that I am incorporating into this month's menu to use them up from my freezer. These are meals that I originally cooked the last few months, where we ate half and I froze the other half.  A super simple way to freezer cook for future easy dinners!  I also have a lot of potatoes to use, so there will be more than usual of those on the menu this month.
