March Instant Pot Meal Plan (2020)

Delicious Instant Pot Meals For The Month of March

March is here and with it comes Lent, Daylight Savings, Spring Break, and St. Patrick’s Day! Busy month! I included meatless recipes on Fridays for those observing Lent. I also included a special meal on St. Patrick’s Day, as well as some desserts perfect for that day.

I added some warm, comforting meals to the first part of the month, and I’m hoping things will warm up towards the end and we can start enjoying spring goodies! As usual, all recipes are easy and delicious and will help you keep your family’s tummies happy!
