Last week we were happy to see the sunshine and the warmer weather welcome Spring this year. I’m already thinking about salads and lighter meals, but I know the cooler weather is not quite behind us yet. So, you’ll find our menu this week somewhere in between heavy warm meals and cooler, lighter meals. (Funny how the weather affects the food choices.)
Monday – Southwestern Chicken Salad
We didn’t get a chance to eat this last week, so we’ll try again this week. We’ll use up leftover Mexican chicken to top a green salad with cilantro, tomatoes, salsa, and guacamole.
Tuesday – Grilled Chicken with Angel Hair Pasta
Grilling chicken breasts to top angel hair pasta. And for a little flavor, I’ll add a lemon-basil sauce. Serving with roasted asparagus.
Wednesday – Cheeseburgers
Serving cheeseburgers with scalloped potatoes and broccoli.
Thursday – Chicken Tikka Masala
Using Patak’s Tikka paste to make this wonderful Indian dish. Serving with basmati rice.
Friday – Fish and Chips
I’m hoping battered and fried tilapia will renew my kids’ interest in fish. Serving with French fries and corn on the cob.
Saturday – Lettuce Wraps
Looking for recipes to make yummy Asian-fusion lettuce wraps. I’m thinking about a chicken filling with a peanut butter sauce. (If you have a recipe to recommend, please leave it or a link to it in the comments. Thanks.)
Sunday – Leftovers
Cleaning the leftovers out of the refrigerator. Everyone chooses their own meal.
- Cheryl at Gluten Free Goodness is hosting this week’s Gluten Free Menu Swap. She chose sunbutter (or peanut butter) as the theme ingredient. We are one of those “weird” families that eat peanut butter, and I am planning to make a peanut butter sauce for the lettuce wraps this week. Check out this week’s menu swap to see what other gluten-free friends are eating this week.
- Laura at OrgJunkie.com hosts Menu Plan Monday every week. You’ll find links to hundreds of meal plans (not necessarily gluten-free) there.
