Spring 2014 Menu

Our winter has been so cold and snowy that we’re incredibly eager for spring! Though we’re only getting a small taste of warmer weather, we’re ready to begin using our spring menu.

Spring 2014 Menu | What’s for dinner in my house during spring 2014? Menu items range from flavorful Italian sausage bruschetta to hearty chicken and noodles.

As I’ve shared previously, I periodically develop monthly menus. We use each for 3 consecutive months before moving on to a new one (read more on why and how I plan monthly menus here).

I only plan dinners on our menus because we almost always eat leftovers with a side of fruit for lunch. For breakfasts, I typically make a few items on the weekends and freeze them for easy preparation on weekday mornings. Our recent favorites include honey wheat butterhorns, mini breakfast stratas, and breakfast sandwiches.

Week 1

  • Italian sausage bruschetta, green beans
  • Ground turkey burritos, salsa rice, corn
  • Grilled chicken sandwiches, lima beans
  • Veggie marinara over cheese tortellini, cheesy bread
  • Burrito bowls
  • Hamburgers, green beans
  • Italian grilled cheese sandwiches, side salad

Week 2

  • Chicken fried rice
  • Loaded baked potato casserole, green beans
  • Swedish meatballs over rice, lima beans
  • Ranch macaroni & cheese, carrots
  • Italian sausage pizza, green beans
  • Cheeseburger quesadillas, balsamic-glazed carrots and potatoes
  • Open

Week 3

Week 4

  • Balsamic chicken, tomato, and pepper orzo
  • Meat marinara over spaghetti, green beans
  • Chicken and noodles, carrots
  • Braised beef tortellini, green beans
  • Turkey potpie
  • Grilled provolone sandwiches, green beans, parmesan-crusted potatoes
  • Open

Over the next few weeks I’ll post recipes for some of the dishes on this menu.

What will you be eating this spring? What new recipes are you eager to try?

  1. I just started planning menus for the first time ever (and I’m a grandma now!) I like the idea of making one month and then using it for 3 months. I’ve just been trying to make 1 big menu calendar. I actually made a menu calandar with meals recurring yearly, so next year I should be all set!
