It has been quite some time since I've shared a monthly menu plan. I have been creating these menu plans off and on since about 2014 (maybe earlier); mostly on, but I have gone months at a time when I would just prepare a weekly meal plan and call it good. I went back to month this year and have stuck with it.
Jarrod and I have been going through The Magnolia Table Vol. 1 cookbook but I realize we've come to somewhat of a dilemma. There are a batch of recipes that just don't look appetizing, nor do I think they would go over on my family. A bunch of desserts, appetizers, soups, breakfasts I want to make but we are just not in that season of our lives right now. I was able to add one new Magnolia Table recipe to the menu this month, but instead ventured out to my Pinterest saves for some new recipes. Some fairly new recipes have become staple recipes and have found their way into our monthly - bi-monthly rotation of recipe cravings.
The new recipe I am looking forward to the most this month is Mexican Street Tacos by Damn Delicious. It has rave reviews on her blog and that many people could not be wrong. We'll serve it with Pico de Gallo and our homemade salsa and chips.
John was ecstatic when he saw I've added chili to the menu at the end of August. While I prefer eating chili in the fall and winter, it is a huge family favorite and we haven't had it in forever. Plus, it's a super easy crockpot meal. As always I love filling in Tuesday's tacos. We never get tired of our homemade tacos. Most of my extended family still love them but they don't eat them anywhere near as often as we do. I love that my daughter Ashley has introduced them to her friends and they are the most requested meal and everyone is excited when she's making homemade tacos.
