March Menu

Don't you hate it when you're unorganized with what you're making for supper so you end up going to the grocery store like every other day?

I mean, just because the Aldi employees know us by name and the Walmart people might not actually know our names but they certainly know us doesn't mean that I need to go there every other day.

Sometimes I do go to the grocery store like 3-4 times I week, and I feel very loser-y when that happens.

This can largely be avoided when I make a menu for the month.  

Lots of stress is avoided when I make a menu for the month, too, plus I feel like I save money.

So, yep, you guessed it, I'm sharing my March Menu with you! 

I was going to walk through how I plan a menu, but that would have made this really long, so I'll do that next week.

I am including recipe links, though!

You're welcome :)

Oh, and take a look at the pasta I'm using for the Spaghetti on March 6th!

It's hollow like a straw, plus it's spiral-y.  I don't think it's possible to have pasta cooler than that!

Have a great weekend!


  1. That is cool pasta! Where did you find that?

    1. I found it where all good things come from...Target :)

  2. Do you make whole wheat pizza dough or regular?

    1. I use the recipe that I linked to which calls for just bread flour, but I do sub one cup of white whole wheat flour in there and it does great! I bet you could put in regular whole wheat and it would work out just fine.

    2. I did look at the linked recipe, but I don't have a mixer. I use a whole wheat crust recipe from Family Fun magazine (of all places! lol) :)

    3. I only recently got a stand mixer and made the dough before by hand!

      Family Fun is great for SO many things!!
