June Monthly Meal Plan

June Monthly Meal Plan

June Monthly Meal Plan: A monthly menu to make your summertime a little more leisurely. Four weeks of easy meals, making the most of this season’s bounty!

One of the greatest complements I ever receive is when someone tells me they love my site, because they never know what to cook and now they have an endless resource of delicious dinner ideas at their fingers tips. Upon hearing such a statement, I always puff up with giddy delight at the thought that I helped them out in some small way.


I’ve always enjoyed lending a hand to a friend in need… and getting to have my say.

So when I started getting requests for monthly meal plans, I thought “You need someone to tell you what to cook all month?

“Oooo, Ooooo, Ooooo, Let me! LET ME!!!” (Jumping up and down, arms flailing.)


This is for you friends.

For those who would rather PIN for hours than plan a weekly menu.

For those who are splashing at the pool or chasing toddlers in the park, and don’t stop to think about dinner until 5:45pm.

For those who always work late and are too tired to make one more decision at the end of the day.

I will happily make them for you–provided you have no dietary restrictions and will try anything! *wink*

  1. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an very long comment but after I clicked submit my comment
    didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing
    all that over again. Anyways, just wanted to say superb blog!

  2. Nice meal plan. I can’t plan more than a few days in advance, due to failing to follow my plans and veggies spoiling as a result. That and I have no idea what I’ll feel like eating in three weeks. I’ll definitely use some of these recipes, but we do have a few restrictions in my house so I can’t use them all.

  3. I looove this idea! I do meal plan, but I can always use new inspiration, and I’m so with you on loving hearing when people make my recipes for their family meals. The picture of you flailing your arms offering to make meal plans totally made me smile, thank you :)

  4. Love having you do the thinking for me Sommer! Isn’t that the hardest part? I find especially during the school year it’s so easy to get into a 4 meal rotation rut. I particularly liked the teeny macaroni in the edamame salad (have not had that we sort since becoming gluten free).

  5. What a great selection of menus. I hope I can manage to create at least half of them. My husband would be in ‘heaven’ if I prepared these goodies for him every night. He will be delighted, however, if I even serve him half of them. Wish me luck.

  6. What a great idea!!! Can’t wait to try some of these recipes :) It’s a great selection!

  7. Everything sounds fantastic! I’m moving the BBQ Carnitas Tacos to the top of my list :)

  8. Wonderful Idea, Sommer :) A great selection of recipes!

    Hugs <3

  9. I LOVE that you did this. Thank you so much. Although we don’t eat out often, well use that slot as a make a family favorite day! Thanks again so much. Please don’t stop!

  10. Love your menu plan. Planning a month in advance is something I seriously need to work on.

  11. Love this menu plan! There are times when meal planning seems like such a chore and it’s great to have a list full of awesome recipes like this one at your fingertips.

  12. Wow, what yummy dishes and a great reason to look forward to everyday! Personally I can do weekly planning, but not monthly. I never know what I’ll get from the CSA or what cravings I get or tasty recipe I see. See, I saw quite a few recipes you have posted for your monthly menu and I want to make almost all of them! They just looks so good. Better yet instead of me planning my recipes for the month, I’ll just pop over to your house everyday for dinner! :)

  13. Thanks so much! This definitely makes life easier!!

  14. fabulous idea! Love this and great list

  15. I love meal planning. But I am also the nerd who loves grocery shopping. Great list of meals Sommer!

  16. You had me with that calamari salad at the top. I want that in my belly! :-)
