Food From Home

Cooking at home for fun, health and frugality!

Meal Planning: 28 dinners for June 2016

on May 27, 2016

Planning for this month involved more input from Hagbard and Amethesto. I asked them each to suggest 4-6 things they wanted to have for dinner. Amethesto immediately requested falafel again. That was a big hit from May!

In June we are going back to eating meat for dinner although there will be some meatless meals. We eat soups year round you will notice because I like soup and it is economical.

My birthday and Father’s day are this month so Hagbard and I are getting a joint gift of a new grill. We’ll probably start grilling more foods after we get that. Our old grill was also a birthday gift to me about 9 years ago. I know some women who leave outdoor cooking exclusively to men but I think grilling is a lot of fun and I do most of it at our house. Something to look forward to!

There was a suggestion that I include recipe links in my meal plan posts. There are a couple of things that I am not sure which recipe I will use so I am not linking to anything or  just linking to my inspiration recipe.

  1. eggs, fruit crisp
  2. potatoes stuffed with sausage , salad
  3. Thai chicken pizza
  4. chili, sweet cornbread
