My first full-month menu was posted to this site on May 1st, 2015. We have gone through an entire year of meals together! I feel like that’s really something to celebrate…. but I’m not sure how to celebrate it. I guess the only way I can celebrate a full year of monthly menus is to post the May 2016 Menu!
I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed the last Foodie Friday of each month this past year. Planning out a full-month of dinners has really simplified my life. I have been planning my menus pretty much since I got married in 2006, but until last year, I only planned a week at a time. And each week was a struggle. On grocery day I would be sitting, pen in hand, with zero ideas for dinner. I thought planning out 30 days of dinners would be that much harder, but it’s not. It really is not. It’s more fun, and I can spread out the task over a whole month. I also always have something to look forward to, because there will be dinners on each month’s plan that I am really excited about.
Here’s to another year of monthly menus from Jessica’s Kitchen Table!
