What’s for Dinner: Our Meal Plan for June

I’m going to admit, our monthly meal plan for May was a little… well, lacking in terms of creativity or excitement. When I sat down to plan the entire month’s worth of dinners, I knew we had a busy month. My husband and I each had a number of social and work commitments already scheduled in the evenings. May is also a month of holidays and birthdays (mine!), and we have almost an entire week that’s up in the air due to a big golf tournament and visitors. So yes, I’ll admit, May’s monthly meal plan was pretty plain. Which is great, if I’m being honest. Quick and easy dinners are winners in this household, and usually the more plain jane the dinner… the more likely my daughter is to eat it.

And if I’m being honest, since I decided to share a few month’s worth of our menus from my monthly meal planning process, I keep getting the feeling like I should make more of an effort while planning June’s dinners. Not that I want to going over the top, by any stretch of the imagination. But just a tad more effort for you, right? Well… after a few minutes of feeling guilty, no. Definitely not. This is not a food blog, and I’m definitely #notafoodblogger. And to pick meals that feel fancy or more creative or even worse… more complex! Just for the sake of “looking better”? Nope. Not going to happy.

So without further ado, here’s our family friendly meal plan for June, with a healthy mix of vegan recipes (for me), and easily adaptable recipes (that will make my husband happy).
