Here’s this week’s menu plan…
My sweet daughter-in-law Abby suggested this delicious recipe from Erin at Platings and Parings! I can’t wait to try this beautiful recipe! Thanks so much, Erin!!!
- BEST INSTANT POT PORK CARNITAS
- REFRIED BEANS
Tonight’s menu is such a classic and so easy family dinner! A roast chicken is such easy comfort food to make!
I’ll add celery, onion, and carrots to the roaster and let them cook in all those glorious chicken juices. YUM!
For decades and decades I whipped potatoes with a hand-held mixer until I tried a ricer! Wow! I love the texture of mashed potatoes riced instead of whipped! They are so much lighter and fluffy! You should give a ricer a try!
- PERFECT ROAST CHICKEN
- MASHED POTATOES WITH CELERY ROOT
- ROASTED CELERY, ONIONS, AND CARROTS
- VANILLA ICE CREAM, STRAWBERRIES AND SPANISH HOT FUDGE SAUCE
One of my favorite things to eat is a perfectly grilled hamburger! So tonight Bobby will give our grill a workout for the first time this season and make my favorite juicy hamburgers!
I’ve never posted them so here is the super easy recipe. For every pound of 80/20 ground beef gently mix in 1 packet of Lipton Onion Soup Mix, 1 TBS Worchestershire sauce and 1/3 cup of water. Don’t smoosh or over mix the ground beef or it will get compressed and tough!
Form meat mixture into hamburger patties indenting the center with your thumbs and gently grill them. It’s all about being gentle!!!!
Do you make your hamburger with this popular recipe?
- HAMBURGERS ON THE GRILL
- AIR FRYER GARLIC PARMESAN FRENCH FRIES
- SALAD FIXINS
One of my very favorite flavor profiles is Mediterranean! It reminds me of sunshine! Tonight’s dinner is a glorious baked cod in a lemony sauce! I think my family will love it!
A big thanks to Suzy at The Mediterranean Dish! What a beautiful dish and site!
Oooooh! I think this recipe will be one I’ll make often this spring. How easy and so delicious! Asparagus and other yummies wrapped in boneless, skinless chicken! Oh YUM!
A big thank you to Rena at Healthy Fitness Meals! I LOVE her suggestion in this post for making chicken not chewy! So true, Rena!
I’m always on the lookout for delicious recipes that use boneless, skinless chicken and has big flavor!
- EASY ASPARAGUS STUFFED CHICKEN BREASTS
- LINGUINE WITH SPINACH AND SUNDRIED TOMATOES CREAM SAUCE
- SALAD GREENS, TOMATOES, AND GREEN GODDESS DRESSING
Tonight’s dinner is so easy and delicious! I LOVE LOVE LOVE flatbread pizza! The first time I had it was at a restaurant called Harvest. YUM! Since then I’ve been making my flatbread pizza with storebought Lavash bread.
This week I’ll be making my own flatbread! Thanks so much, Valentina from Valentina’s Corner.
Valentina’s story on her about page brought tears to my eyes! God has blessed you, Valentina!!!!

SUNDAY- FAMILY DINNER NIGHT
Oh, I love a good old-fashioned Sunday dinner! We are having a small get together so I’m making this glorious beef tenderloin recipe from Alli at Longhorn Farm! I’m so so enjoying this new-to-me blog! And I know you will too!
The muffin tin potato recipe is from the second month I was blogging almost 11 years ago! UGH! I certainly have come a long long way! The recipe is great but the photos! Oh my! I like this recipe so much I just may retake the pictures and revamp the post a bit! Do make this recipe it is a keeper!
Broccoli and garlic sauce are a match made in heaven. I’ll make the broccoli sans rice for tonight’s menu!

There are two things I just love when it comes to something sweet. Using a box mix and lemons! This recipe has both! I am so excited to make these with my little Emma Kate!

Have a scrumptious week, Friend!
Well let me tell you,you have outdone yourself. What a fantastic menu this week. Wow ,I can’t wait to start cooking. And my husband can’t wait either. Thank you.
Wow – some great choices here. I am going to fix the asparagus stuffed chicken breasts tonight. I have prepared a similar recipe of pasta with sun-dried cream sauce before – thanks for the reminder. I love having a fully stocked pantry in times like these. It makes it easier to put together creative delicious meals and not have to leave the house. I’ve always said that there aren’t too many problems that can’t be helped by a good meal. Kind of simplistic, but it does help to know that at least we can eat well.
I know what you mean about a stocked pantry and freezer! I’m very thankful for having enough food!
I love Mondays! I’m always anxious to see the recipes you post for that week, and have tried a few of them!
Yum! Can’t wait to try the muffin tin potatoes but the link isn’t working?
