ON THE MENU week of march 5th- I have a week's worth of scrumptious recipes planned for you!

Today I’m heading to Costco, my favorite place to grocery shop in bulk! I’m heading right for the meat department and picking up some scrumptious salmon and chuck roast! I also buy two rotisserie chickens every time I’m there. I just can’t help myself. I’ll cut it all apart and save the bones for stock. YUM! This week some of the chicken will go into the freezer and I’ll use the rest for lunches. Chicken on a Caeser salad or made into Chicken salad is the perfect lunch in my book! What’s your favorite lunch? I’d love to hear! 


To listen to all the episodes and get the links to things we talked about in our show notes go HERE.

Now, let’s see what I’m cooking up this week!


I love Sunday dinners, especially when they include family!  I try to keep food easy and comforting. I want to concentrate on the people I love!


This is the easiest and most delish salmon recipe! Give this one a try!


I found a new-to-me food blog. GIMME SOME OVEN is not only beautifully done but the recipes are amazing! I’m sharing the recipe and photo of crispy chicken below! YUM! Can’t wait to try this!


I could use my slow cooker almost every night. I am a huge fan of getting food done ahead! And doing all the prep work in the morning frees up my evenings… and makes less dishes too!




I have a new food blog crush. If you love great recipes you will love THE RECIPE CRITIC

Beef Bourguignon is just a fancy way of saying the best beef stew you have ever eaten! It’ is rich and scrumptious with a deep and complex sauce made with red wine! Oh, YUM! Company worthy but easy to make!


I’ve made this recipe for years and years! It’s a little bit of a spin on regular crab cakes. The corn is a sweet surprise!


Another wonderful source for scrumptious recipes is TASTE OF HOME. I found the gorgeous image below and the recipe there. You might like to check them out HERE.

I am crazy about any food that is served in individual portions. Don’t these Broccoli Scalloped Potatoes with Ham adorable?




These glorious and glorified pancakes are a true show-stopper and are a great way to brunch on the weekends!


Gotta make an extra pot of soup.

What’s on your menu this week?

    Sounds delicious!!

  2. Off to the kitchen I go!! Thanks for all the delicious recipes.

  3. Everything looks so delicious.I know I’m making baked macaroni
    this week for sure and maybe a pork roast.

  4. My favorite but occasional lunch is half a deli meat sandwich, with cheese, mayo, dill pickle and lettuce, and Trader Joes “Fritos”. And an orange. And some Coca Cola. I could eat it every day, but I’m sure you can understand that I only have it a few times a year!!

  5. Patty Soriano says:

    You always have such lovely menus. I don’t know where I could find that much energy. We usually plan by the seat of our pants. It depends on how we feel at the end of the day. Sometimes I cook, other times hubby grills. Sometimes we’re too tired and hubby brings home take-out. I do save some of your ideas though and plan to make them at some point. They sound too delicious not to try!

  6. It all looks good. Iam hungry !

  7. Yum! Can’t wait to try all of these. But for this weekend , the Beef Bourguignon is calling my name!

  8. Teresa Gonzales says:

    Yum! Love all your recipes. Have made the mini dutch babies so many times- a family favorite! Thanks

  9. Elizabeth Anne says:

    Yvonne I will be trying several of these delicious looking recipes. Thanks

  10. I love you recipes. They are even doable for someone like me who is not a great cook. Thanks for all the thought you put into your blog. I really enjoy every aspect of it.

  11. nancy limestall says:

    love your blog so much

  12. I just bought a chuck roast. I think I will be making the beef bourguignon in my slow cooker.

  13. I was at Costco last night and picked up two blade roasts for the slow cooker and three roasting chickens. I like to cook up my chickens at home because I love the crispy skin.
    My lunch almost every day – mixed berries with pecans on top. It’s fresh and light leaving lots of room for scrumptious dinners.

  14. Yummy looking recipes! Since my sister/brother-law will be visiting next week, I’ll serve one of their favorites-chicken spaghetti with salad of Spring greens, mandarin oranges, toasted almonds and my special garlic dressing, baguette from Sam’s. Another night, we will have a pork tenderloin with different colored miniature potatoes in a beef consommé, creamed cheese potatoes, green beans with balsamic/bacon auction and good ole’ Sister Schubert wheat dinner rolls. Hubby will grill burgers one night-he’s sure he has found the perfect seasonings! Of course, we I’ll have our grandmother’s oatmeal cookies!

  15. Maya Williams says:

  17. Thanks for the recipes Yvonne. I too love the rotisserie chicken from Costco.

  18. Nancy Pharr says:

    The salmon recipe is very confusing. I looked up the Epicurus recipe. It said nothing about mayo yet you said spread it over fish. The Epicurious recipe did however mention mustard which you never mentioned. ?????

  19. Carol Brooks says:

    I love getting your On The Menu emails! I always find something new and delicious to make. Thank you so much!

    Wonderful Menu!! I Garlic Chicken!! It looks divine!! Thank you so much for the menu!!!!

  36. Bonjour Yvonne!
    Not sure you will see my comment since it’s now Tuesday…? First of all you’re a very prolific blogger and since I’m fairly new to your blog I enjoy your posts. Thank you for your motivation, creativity and passion. I love our home and look forward to your projects, hints etc…
    In answer to your question of what’s on my lunch menu well I often have what I refer to as a “yoga bowl”!! I like to have cooked quinoa on hand and add protein in the form of legumes (chickpeas, red kidney beans, lentils), cooked chicken or cottage cheese, hard boiled egg, nuts… Also, I add cooked beets, tomatoes, corn, red onions, lettuce, whatever I have on hand and strikes my fancy. As for a vinaigrette well it’s usually olive oil with balsamic vinegar reduction… Yum and healthy!
    Thanks for your weekly menus, the Slow Cooker Beef Bourguignon is presently cooking and smelling marvellous in my kitchen!! Take care and thanks! Marie xx

  37. Joan Kayser says:
