I LOVE strawberries and one of my favorite desserts to make with strawberries is strawberry shortcake. I don’t care so much for the cakey version of shortcake though and found a really simple and delicious recipe for “classic” strawberry shortcake using Bisquick. … Continue reading
Good Monday morning everyone! I am so sorry about the lack of a dinner menu last week, but after being out-of-town until Tuesday and playing catch up on all my house work that needs to be done, I was a bit overwhelmed. Not to worry, I am back with a wonderful weekly dinner menu this week that I am excited about! There are a few new recipes that I am trying and I am cooking almost everything on the grill. I love cooking on the grill!
Also, today is my sweet pup Emma Lou’s birthday! She is my crazy, sweet little cuddle puppy and she is now 7 years old. Here is a little montage of Emma through the years…
Monday- Hamburgers on the grill.
Tuesday- Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos from One Krieger Chick. These sound amazing! I am going to marinate the chicken in taco seasoning and olive oil before grilling it. I am grilling extra chicken to freeze and have on hand.
Wednesday- Going to Nana’s house!
Thursday- Still at Nana’s house!
Friday- Southwest Chopped Chicken Salad: I am using the extra grilled chicken from Tuesday night’s tacos for the salad.
Saturday- Steak Fajita Rice Bowls: This recipe is a culmination of two recipes I found. One, on Oh Sweet Basil and one on Pioneer Woman. I will marinate the steak and veggies like the Pioneer Woman did for her fajitas and put the dinner together like it was done on Oh Sweet Basil. This sounds like a healthier alternative to using a tortilla (especially since I am not a fan of corn tortillas which are better for you).
Sunday- Crock Pot Spaghetti and Meatballs: This is a new recipe for me, but I am excited about making the meatballs in the crock pot as opposed to baking or sauteing them. It should save me some time.
I am excited about this weeks menu and I will do a recap sometime next week to let you know how the new recipes turned out!
Have a wonderful week.
I was born and raised in the south and grew up on good southern cooking. My hubby was born and raised in the northwest and hadn’t had some of the southern staples like pecan pie, sweet potato casserole, and well-cooked … Continue reading
As the parents of a toddler, we don’t go out to eat much. About once a month, my mother comes to visit and we have “date night”, but other than that, we pretty much just eat at home. Every once … Continue reading
Today’s beer is a fun one, Koko Brown. It is part of the Kona Brewing Company Aloha Series that is available in winter and spring. Koko Brown is brewed with toasted coconut to give you the perfect hint of nutty … Continue reading
There is no wines-day post today, but I wanted to give you a little look into some very tiny things I have done this week to sort of ”tidy” up a bit around the house. First up is my dresser. It was … Continue reading
Last month, a new cookbook came out from a wonderful blogger, The Recipe Girl. So many of the blogs I follow were promoting this new book by making different recipes from it and giving away the book itself. I was … Continue reading
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! Here in the Moore household, we really appreciate teachers, but my little man is only two and he doesn’t go to school yet. That doesn’t mean that we don’t have a slue of people who “teach” … Continue reading
