They say that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb, I don’t know about anyone else but it sure felt like March is going out like a lion over here. It was a busy month full of kid activities, work obligations and projects around the home. Thankfully, our menu was planned out in advance so we never had to worry about what was for dinner. We’ll be doing the same thing with our April menu plan. It really does make life less stressful.

This month we have a couple of special days planned which include Easter and a larger dinner to go with it as well as a special birthday dinner. Those days are planned into our menu as well as any night we might be going out to dinner with friends. No matter what your plans are, we have 30 fabulous, budget-friendly, kid-approved meals plus 4 delicious desserts for you to feed your family this month. Enjoy!

We have many readers asking for all of the Monthly Menu Plans and the Printable pages to be in one location. So, we put them all together on a special page for everyone. Grab over 3 years worth of Budget Friendly Recipes and Menu Planning Tips too!
