Now we’re moving in to the third month of the year and the end of the first quarter. It’s hard to believe Spring is just around the corner, especially when temperatures are still hovering around the 40’s in the mornings here. However, I think we are finally past the snow, so we are looking forward to Spring!
This month there is only one major holiday, St. Patrick’s Day. If you’re looking to celebrate in style on the 17th of March, check out these recipes I gathered for a traditional or inspired Irish meal.
Just like the last few months, I have created two meal plans. On the regular meal plan, slow cooker meals remain on Sundays and Wednesdays or for those times you need a meal ready-to-eat. If you’d like to switch up some of the Slow Cooker Meals to an Instant Pot recipe, check out my beginners post in the series for a great link to help! With spring approaching I have included some delicious grilling meals toward the end of the month.
As for the Instant Pot Meal Plan, I have included some 15-minute and 30-minute IP meal options so you can use those on days you need quick meals (like nights you have to run out for church or extra-curricular activities). Also, the suggestions for breakfasts, lunches, snacks and desserts are all Instant Pot recipes!
Feel free to move any of the recipes around as needed to fit your family’s schedule. You can even mix and match the two meal plans! There is a variety of meats (fish, chicken, beef, pork) as well as soups and salads (on both plans) to keep the whole family happy. My hope each month is that you will find some new favorites to add to your own must have rotation. Once again I have included some quick and easy Breakfast, Lunch, Snack and Dessert ideas to help you throughout the month.
You can download each meal plan by clicking on the corresponding images below.
