May 2017 Menu Plan | $262 For 31 Days of Kid-Friendly Dinners

Happy May!  May’s Menu is loaded with spring inspired dinners that won’t break the bank.  I’ve also included a special Mother’s Day recipe for Cedar Plank Salmon with Strawberry Salsa that I am super excited to share!  And “May The 4th Be With You” with this fun “Bow-Ba Fett Pasta”, or, every other day of the year, Pasta Primavera and, another way to use up leftover Spaghetti Sauce with Penne all Vodka!

May 2017 Menu

Last month, I flaked a little with my Dad’s surgery, and Grandfather’s health, my mind kind of shifted, and I missed sharing a few recipes.  Anyhow, I have fixed that and have added April’s recipes to the bottom of the post.  So scroll down, and download the ones you’re looking for!

There are 5 new recipes this month, and they will be shared throughout the month to keep content fresh, so make sure to join my mailing list to get the recipes sent directly to your inbox the day they are posted.  For early access to the recipes as well as a weekly break down of the grocery list and menu with how-to tips and tricks, visit my Etsy store and get your copy for only $2.50.

May’s Menu rings in at $262.  As in other months, I shop in season, shop my pantry, and most importantly, I shop around at a few different grocery stores.  It’s how I get the cost of my dinner menus to stay so low.  Here’s what’s on May’s Menu:

  1. Hi, I love your site! It might just be my computer but I don’t see links to recipes after the sloppy joes and oven fries. Do you have to buy the recipes on Etsy every month?
