As always April goes by too fast! This menu plan is a bit late but so helpful in keeping our family fed and happy. When I don’t have a meal plan for our family 5:00 rolls around faster. And then we realize we are missing ingredients. Planning for the whole month keeps things easy for me and helps me rotate what we eat so we aren’t always eating pasta. I hope you can find this monthly dinner menu helpful for your family! I know family dinners will bring families closer together. Save time by planning ahead. Because our family deserves our time. I love having a nightly discussion with our kids. It’s a great way to spend time with your kids.

Our family traditions include family dinners, family scripture study, and family nights every Monday night. I love sharing the topics or lessons that we have for family night. Our kids look forward to Monday nights! I love gathering to sing, share ideas, and learn together. And they love the treats we have after. Really it’s a win-win-win!

I know making family night a priority will bless your family. You can have a formal lesson or take turns teaching a principal. Even if you make time for a game night your family will be blessed. I challenge you to pick a family night and spend time together. You will find love in your home will increase and your children will become closer. Our kids really do love it. I mean, they love the treats we have in store, but they also love the time we spend together.
What Dinner are you most looking forward to this month???
