Menu Plan Monday – May 6


May? How did we get here. I completely forgot it was Cinco de Mayo yesterday until the day before. I think my head still thinks it is March. April was a blur. And the weather here isn’t helping – it certainly feels like March. I’m sure that will change soon enough though and I’ll be wishing for cooler days.

The Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken from this past week might be a new family favorite. I followed the recipe fairly close, though I used less honey, about 1/3 cup. We tend to not like our dishes too sweet. Even my husband was impressed. And it certainly meets my criteria for easy slow cooker recipes – not much prep work involved! The Shrimp and Grits also went over really well with everyone. Of course with some bacon pieces added, I knew my son would love it – bacon might be his favorite food (that he only gets occasionally). I still don’t know how that happened. But a little bit goes a long way to add flavor.

Here is what we will be having this week:

Monday: Veggie Frittata with Sliced Strawberries and Cinnamon Raisin Sunflower Bread

Tuesday: Rotisserie-Style Chicken with Roasted Rosemary Potatoes and Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Apples

Wednesday: Chicken and Tofu Enchiladas with Strawberry and Orange Salad

Thursday: Leftovers

Friday: Chicken Sausage and Pepper Pasta with Steamed Broccoli

Saturday: Evening Out

Sunday: Happy Mother’s Day (no idea yet what we are doing, but I’m not planning it!!)
