Isn’t it fun to have on your menu “something grilled”? Just me? (I know it is not just me.) The weather has been consistently nice and before I left for the grocery store, I made out our menu and really did include “something grilled” and then I had a time finding what meat I wanted to grill. (I ended up with steak. An easy option.)
For the rest of the week, it’s a little tricky. I have so many meetings and events this week and I am trying hard to make sure we have easy items, but new things too. (My husband loves trying new recipes. I’m a safe kind of girl.) OH. And our toddler is eating red meat again! Score huge points for us!
Sunday – Burgers on the grill. We’ll use English muffins, rather than buns (just a little lower in calories, I believe) and adding salad as a side. My grandma’s lettuce is abundant, so I’m swinging by there in a bit to pick some.
Monday – Tacos. I couldn’t let cinco de mayo pass without having Mexican food, right? So tacos it shall be.
Tuesday – Lemon basil chicken. This is a recipe from the eMeals low fat family plan. I’m really excited to try it.
Wednesday – Ranch pork chops (in the slow cooker.) This is another recipe from eMeals (the same low fat family plan.) I really scored with this menu, I think. I’ve found a lot of great recipes.
Thursday – Grilled chicken and salad.
Friday – Pizza
Saturday is open. I have to be at graduation that day and host a graduate reception following graduation. We also have a graduation party (different college) we’ve been invited to AND I have plans to go to a movie that night. SO many things to do!
And before I wrap this up, eMeals has provided a cinco de mayo recipes and grocery list for readers. The following is an avocado dip that I’m tempted to try this afternoon.
- 2 large ripe avocados, peeled & seeded
- 1 T lemon juice
- ¼ small onion, finely chopped
- 1 small tomato, finely chopped, without skin and seeds
- (1 t salt)
- 4 T sour cream
- 1 T jalapeño pepper, finely chopped
- 1 T fresh cilantro, finely chopped
- Tortilla chips
- Mash avocados with a fork. Add lemon juice, onion, tomato,
- salt and sour cream. Stir in jalapeño pepper and cilantro.
- Serve with tortilla chips.
