YOU CAN SEE HOW I STYLED THE SPRING INSPIRED VIGNETTE ABOVE HERE.
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 for the week of Feb 22nd…
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! See my AIR FRYER HERE.
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!
- GRANDMA LO BIANCO’S FAMOUS MEATBALLS
- FRESH SPAGHETTI
- CAESAR SALAD
I made this glorious chicken dish from EATWELL 101 for company a few months ago and I am so hooked! If you are coming for dinner the first time 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.

Thank you once again for all the wonderful recipes! The link to the broccoli rice cups does not seem to be working. Stay warm and be well.
Thanks for letting me know. I fixed this broken link! Enjoy the recipes.
I’ve been on the fence about getting an air fryer, but your recipe ideas have me seriously considering getting one. One question I have is which size to get? It’s just me and my husband at home but we often have kids and grandkids here for dinner. Well, pre-Covid anyway. I also like to make enough for planned leftovers as we run a business and I work part-time. Any thoughts on what quart size might be a good choice? Thank you!
Here is my Air Fryer:https://rstyle.me/+Up-FEW5jR3jZYiAJKPJaQA. If I have a lot of people for an Air Fryer dinner I keep the things I’ve air fryed in the oven on warm. Hope this helps.
Oh my goodness, Yvonne. Please disregard my last question about sweet pepper spice. I thought I saw Tbsp after it on the chili ingredients. Sweet peppers are red bell peppers here in Canada. Sorry about my confusion. I’ve got my shopping list ready for the store now to try your chili recipe. Comfort food at its best on a cold Winter day.
Thank you? ever so kindly for your menu of the week, you have no idea what a blessing you are and what a tremendous help your menu’s are
You are the best.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
You made my day, Charlene!
