Our June Meal Plan

I can’t think of a time when I’ve been happier to welcome a new month. May was a blur. And I don’t feel very settled when time is racing like a chicken with its head cut off, with no place to go and nothing to show for it.

So, I’m really excited to walk into June with my head held high — and my meal plan clutched tightly in my fist!

I spent a few minutes this weekend and mapped out our dinnertimes for the month. Knowing that we’re waltzing into summer vacation gave me the impetus to make dinner times easy, no-fuss affairs. There’s nothing too complicated on the menu and many of our meals can be made in advance. This allows us pool time without worrying about what to make for dinner.

Here’s our June meal plan:

3. Grilled Chicken, Rice Pilaf, Vegetables

4. Chicken Salad Sandwiches (with the leftovers from Sunday), fresh fruit

5. QuesadillasVeggie Dippers

6. Pasta with Red Sauce, Steamed Vegetables, Good Bread

7. Sandwich Bar

8. Pizza Night

    We’re going to a bbq Saturday so I don’t have major cooking to do. I’m just bringing a couple of things and showing up early to help put the gyoza together. Ended up getting pizza this past Friday, due to the storms and people from Maryland not able to drive in the rain it took me an hour to get home instead of the usual 20 minutes. I wish I still has my Ohio plates so people would know yes I can drive and use turn signals!

  2. What to you do for your other meal of the day? Do you plan it or just have a stock set of ideas to use?

    • Jessica says:

      There have been weeks when I plan it all out per day, but currently, I just have a list of meal ideas from breakfast and lunch to draw from. I also tend toward a breakfast bar in the mornings which makes it really easy.

  3. Hi there–what’s the meal in that first photo? It looks delicious, and right up our alley. Thanks!-Jen

  4. the first picture looks WONDERFUL. yum!!

    this week, we’re having:

    Monday: bangin’ grilled shrimp skewers, asian fried brown rice with veggies, grilled pineapple rings, broccoli from the garden or salad.

    Tuesday: pomodoro with grilled chicken, more broccoli from the garden, salad.

    Wednesday: queso fundido, leftover rice, corn and black bean salsa.

    Thursday: thai cilantro grilled chicken, leftover rice or baked rice, southwestern salad and more corn/bean salsa.

    Friday: either we grill out with friends (so hot dogs, etc.) or we go out!

    Saturday lunch: something easy, like chicken sausage/onion/bell pepper kabobs.
    Saturday night: friends and family dinner, so I have no idea.. I’m bringing a Hummingbird Cake!

    Another month of eating primarily from the pantry, but with some new variations. Looking forward to shrimp twice this month, plus some DIY salads!

  6. I’m eating mostly from the pantry/freezer as we clean out the food before vacaton. Here’s my menu plan for the week:

  7. We’re moving, so I’m doing a pantry/ fridge clean out… I’m going to try to have it all gone before we move! This means using up all the little things like the last of the quinoa and brown rice (so we’re having kielbasa, beans and rice or quinoa twice!) Also… I, for the first time, made a two-week meal plan… it was easier than I thought. Maybe, after we move, I’ll go for a month! Thanks for all of the inspiration- my enchilada pasta on my menu is also inspired by your enchilada recipe- and I’m looking forward to the chili recipe from your picture!!

  8. It’s a busy month of graduation and we are still getting used to the new baby so it’s a lot of freezer meals for us!
