April Menu ~ Menu Plan Monthly

Hi everyone!! It seems like I just finished up March's Menu and now April is already here. Boy how the time flies by. I am kind of excited about April because Easter will be here in a couple days. We are celebrating Easter with friends but instead of a traditional Easter dinner we will be grilling out. Were going to have hamburgers and hot dogs or fajita nachos. We still haven't decided yet but at least we have it narrowed down. I will be bringing a Tres Leches Cake, Pasta Crab Salad, Deviled Eggs, and Easter Sugar Cookie Bars.

My friend is also making Shrimp Cocktails. Hers is a bit different from the traditional shrimp cocktail and it's so good. I could just sit and eat it until I pop. I will make sure to take photos so I can post the recipe. Well enough about food and onto my April Menu. I have a few meals that I carried over from last month so if you see a few repeats that's why. I have also included McKLinky at the end of this post. If you plan a monthly menu, then I would love for you to link up. We can all use some new meal ideas. I would also like to say thank you to everyone who does links up every month to Menu Plan Monthly.

Oh veggie packets sound yummy as do all the rest. And I just have to say that I had already made my menu up before I found your spaghettios casserole. That and your skillet chocolate chip cookie are on my list to try! Happy Easter! I'm looking forward to making our annual lime cake :)

Wow impressive! I have never been one to plan meals for more than 1 week. What if plans change? What do you do with those Ing.? (fresh stuff)
Do you shop weekly for those Ing.? I have a hard enough time buying for a week and keeping hands out of the Ing. before I get to use them. lol.

Everything looks yummy! I've wanted to try tres leches cake for a while but never did. Maybe I"ll have to make room for it!

Tina- Hope your family has a wonderful Easter! Once again you have a wonderful looking menu. I wish I was as organized so I could do a monthly menu... sometimes nothing sounds good and I have a hard time with a weekly menu!
