Let’s eat deliciously healthy meals this week! We are now in between the glorious, warm flavored food of winter and the lightened up fresher flavors of spring! This week’s menu has lots of warm yummy recipes with fresh salads and more! Here’s what’s on the menu this week…
This pretty vignette is one of my very favorites. If you are itching for Spring, like I am, you will want to see how I styled this vignette.
Let’s see what’s on the menu…
MONDAY- SOUP DAY- SLOW COOKER DAY
Soup! What a great way to start a week! Right now, I have a WW zero-point Chicken Soup in the frig for lunches and wow, is it good!
I’m going to start creating and posting my favorite recipes so you can enjoy them too. So look for this great filling soup soon.
Today I can’t wait to make Slow Cooker Mexican Street Corn Chicken Soup. I get almost giddy about soup! I bet my whole house will smell scrumptious!
Thanks, Chelsea’s Messy Apron! I love this site!
- SLOW COOKER MEXICAN STREET CORN CHICKEN SOUP
- TORTILLA AND CHIPS
I’ve been making this delicious roasted chicken for decades and it’s just so so good and easy! We eat and use every single bit of the chicken. We will have it for dinner tonight and leftovers for the week and I’ll use the carcass to make stock.
If you make one thing this week, it should be a perfectly roast chicken! Oh, YUM!
- THE MOST DELICIOUS ROAST CHICKEN
- ROASTED POTATOES, ONIONS, AND CARROTS
Do you love Fish Tacos? If you do you will really love these fresh flavored bites of taco joy! LOL! I know I get a little over-the-moon when it comes to a really delicious recipe.
I make these in honor of my Mom. She is a big fan of Fish Tacos!
I’m tweaking my recipe a bit to make it more healthy. I’ll coat the fish with panko breadcrumbs and use the air fryer. Yes, air fryer again! Seriously, this air fryer has changed the way I cook! So much healthier!
Let’s be honest, though! The original way to prepare the fish in the recipe is my favorite!
And there is really nothing that compares to a battered fish! Who doesn’t love batter fried fish, right?
So, once in a while I make the fish with batter and fry it. But not tonight!
Chicken fingers are not just for kids. Kids and grown up will love chicken fingers like the ones from Averie Cooks.
I’ll make a double batch and add them to salads for lunch! Yummy!
FRIDAY- WEEKEND COMPANY
Do you have a meal that you can make almost in your sleep? One that is a no-fail and so amazingly good? You should have a few of these recipes.
Grandma Lo Bianco’s famous meatballs is one of my favorite, no-brainer recipes!
We are having company for the weekend and I want to feed them well and enjoy them.
So I’ll make these yummy meatballs and caesar salad dressing up ahead and dinner is guaranteed to be oh, so good!
Sue and John can’t wait till you come!
I made this glorious chicken dish from EATWELL 101 for company a few months ago and I am so hooked! If you are having dinner at our home you will probably get this for dinner. LOL! Everyone raves!
Don’t you love a recipe that is easy to make and company-worthy?
You really need to give French Onion Chicken a try!
I’ll make the onions ahead this week so they will be ready for this easy company-worthy recipe! And I’m thinking about adding a slice of ham under the chicken for a little depth of flavor! Doesn’t that sound wonderful?
- FRENCH ONION CHICKEN CASSEROLE
- WILD RICE AND MUSHROOM PILAF
- PERFECTLY ROASTED ASPARAGUS
- ARUGULA SALAD WITH TOASTED PINENUTS, SHAVED PARMESAN CHEESE IN A LEMON VINAIGRETTE
SUNDAY- SUNDAY BRUNCH
When company’s here at the Tanglewood house I get up early and make an easy brunch!
Don’t these Puff Pastry Eggs look gorgeous? And I love love love puff pastry! Again, I’ll be doing a bit of prep work for this brunch so I can enjoy our company.
- EASY PUFF PASTRY EGGS
- THICK WOOD SMOKED BACON

- HONEYBELL CITRUS SALAD (recipe upcoming soon)
SWEET TREAT OF THE WEEK
Our guests will be treated to a couple sweet treats.
First, this beautiful chocolate cake! And I’m whipping up a couple batches of my favorite SHORTBREAD COOKIES.
Even though I am not much of a sweet eater I may eat just a sliver of the chocolate cake! Thanks, Joy Food Sunshine!
Have a scrumptious week!
