June Menu Plan

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure statement for more details.

I am SO glad to be done with this menu! I’ve never before attempted a whole month’s menu, but with lots of other stuff to do this summer (including trying to plan “camp” weeks for my kids: Dinosaur Camp, Jungle Camp, Ocean Camp …) I wanted to get meal-planning out of the way ASAP. I see a Big Cooking Day coming soon so I can stock the freezer with breakfasts and lunches and have that done, too!


June 1: Faculty dinner

June 2: Lemon Dill Chicken, rice, corn on the cob

Note: June 3-9 we are participating in JessieLeigh’s Eating By Ancestry challenge. We’ll be eating like Germans (my heritage) and see how we feel! We’re going to go the traditional route of eating our bigger meal at lunch, which is perfect since it’s VBS week anyway. If you’re interested in participating, let JessieLeigh know and check out our group Pinterest board!

*Shew.* Honestly, I hate menu planning! And since we eat in the dining hall about 9 months of the year, I don’t have to do it a lot. But when I have to cook, it definitely makes life much easier.

Linking up, as always, with Menu Plan Monday.

  1. Brave woman to do a new German recipe every day for a week! I’m half German, but on my Dad’s side, though my mom would make rouladen every so often (which is very similar to the Sicilian bracioli, but with different stuffing and made with gravy instead of cooked in sauce).

    Congrats on getting a whole month down; even if some days get derailed, it helps to have a plan.

  2. I’m half-German and absolutely love the mellow flavors of German food. Your blog today was a goldmine of recipes. Can’t wait to try them out! Thanks for sharing! Sehr gut!

    • I love everything about German food, too, so I am WAY excited about this coming week. My hubby, not so much! But we’ll try to win him over. 🙂 I’m glad these links were helpful to you and I’ll definitely be updating on the recipe results here and on my FB page.
