January Monthly Meal Plan

January 2018 Monthly Meal Plan by Sarahboparah

On this Thursday morning, which marks the fourth day of January, it is, inevitably, raining. The dark, inky sky is filled with angry grey clouds, and the window is open, as I re-shelve the last cookbook that had been laid open on the table. I have just finished drawing up my meal plan for the month of January, and today, I’m sharing it with you.

Before we start, I should make note of a few things:

  • The monthly meal plan I draw up only includes dinner.
  • I don’t consider my meal plans to be set in stone; if we end up eating something else, that’s fine by me.
  • The dinners below are mostly vegetarian.
  • Most dishes I cook are for four to six people, whereas our household only consists of two. Inevitably, this results in a lot of leftovers, and I actively schedule days to finish those.

Below, I’ll share my 31-day meal plan for the month of January and, at the end of this post, a PDF printable that includes all of the meals, should you be interested in having this plan for yourself. I’ve also included links, where available online, to the recipes I’m using.
