Weekly Menu {6/10-6/16}

New Menu

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I am cooking every night this week except one and I am making my hubby’s favorite roast dinner for Father’s day on Sunday.

MondayTomato Basil Chicken with Pasta from Menu Musings; this is a new recipe for us and I am excited about it! The basil and tomatoes remind me of bruschetta, which I love.

Tuesday- Ground Beef Tacos

Wednesday- Pesto Ranch Chicken with Pasta; we have had this one many times. I serve it with pasta, but you could definitely serve it as a sandwich or even with rice.

Thursday- Leftovers

Friday- Burgers with Pesto Potatoes from Six Sister’s Stuff; I can’t wait to try these potatoes! They look amazing.

Saturday- Chicken Fajita Sandwiches from Buns in my Oven; When we have something like hamburgers that use buns, we never use all 8 of them so I try to make something else we can eat on a bun in the same week. This recipe looks like it is right up our alley. Mexican food in bread!

Sunday- Balsamic Onion Roast with Garlic Mashed Potatoes; This is my husband’s favorite roast recipe that I make. The balsamic really gives it a delicious flavor. I will post the recipe for the garlic mashed potatoes once I get them perfect! Click on the roast link to print the recipe.

Do you have a garlic mashed potato recipe that you would like to share? I can never seem to get mine garlicky enough!

As always, I hope this gives you a little help with making your weekly menu. If you can’t find anything here, be sure to check out One Krieger Chick’s menu or Elle Elyse’s menu for some other great ideas!

Thanks for stopping by.

Weekly Dinner Menu: 6/6-6/9

New Menu

Good morning and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a fantastic week. We have company this week until Thursday so there are a couple of days I am leaving blank. I want to start out by telling you that I did not make the Mexican dish that I was going to make on Sunday last week because my hubby and I loved Oh Sweet Basil’s Rib recipe so much we decided to make it again! It really is simple and delicious. I suggest you make it A.S.A.P.!

Monday- Hamburgers and Oven Fries; I am using a recipe I found on Pinterest that claims to be the best baked oven fries. We shall see!

Tuesday- Grilled Chicken Tacos; I am marinating the chicken in 2 tbsp of olive oil and 1 tbsp taco seasoning overnight and then grilling it. I have also been using One Krieger Chick’s recipe for cilantro lime tacos. The only alteration I make is that I mix the lime, cilantro, onion, and a dash of taco seasoning in 1.5 cups of sour cream to make a sauce for the tacos. My husband really liked it that way!

Wednesday- Usually this is my crock pot dinner night, but since it is Gram and Pop’s last night in town, I am leaving it blank.

Thursday- Cheesy Enchilada Casserole; this is the one I didn’t make last week.

Friday-  Leftovers

Saturday- Pizzadillas; I am going to make these with pepperoni, green pepper, and onion.

Sunday- Church Small Group

I hope these give you some ideas of what to cook for dinner! If you can’t find anything you like over here on my menu, check out the weekly menu on One Krieger Chick or the gluten-free weekly menu on Elle Elyse.

Weekly Dinner Menu: 5/27-6/2



Happy Memorial Day everyone! I hope you are all out enjoying some quality time with your families and friends. Here is our menu for this week! Gram and Pop are coming from Seattle for a visit so we are all VERY EXCITED!

Monday- Oh Sweet Basil’s BBQ Ribs; This  is our first time making ribs and we are a little nervous, but her recipe seems pretty simple.

Tuesday- Ground Beef Tacos

Wednesday- Slow Cooker Gyros from Six Sister’s Stuff with tzatziki sauce.

Thursday- Lemon Basil Pasta, another Oh Sweet Basil creation. I am making this with the frozen chicken like she did instead of cooing my own because Gram and Pop get here this night and I want to be able to spend lots of time with them.

Friday-  Grilled Buxom Chicken Breast; my SIL told me about this recipe and her and my BIL swear by this website for all things grilled!

Saturday- Leftovers

Sunday- Cheesy Enchilada Casserole from Six Sister’s Stuff (I love their recipes too)

I promise to let you guys know how all of these new recipes turn out!

Have a wonderful week.


Weekly Dinner Menu: 5/20-5/26

New Menu

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.

Weekly Dinner Menu: 5/6-5/11


Good Monday to you all! I am trying to keep my menu simple this week because my mom is coming in town and the hubby and I are getting ready to go out-of-town for our anniversary! There is only one new recipe on the menu, the mini deep dish pizzas. The rest are tried and true recipes that I know we like and aren’t too difficult. I am happy to be making the shrimp and grits as an early Mother’s day dinner for my mom. I am also making this Samoas Poke Cake for her because she LOVES coconut! I will be sure to let you guys know how it turns out! I hope you all have a great week!

Monday- Roast Beef (French Dip) Crescents; I make the recipe omitting the Au jus and I use the horseradish sauce as a dip instead of putting it on the actual sandwich because it is too spicy for the little one.

Tuesday- Chicken Tacos; I am using leftover Cafe Rio Chicken from last week. (I also used this chicken to make the Pioneer Woman’s Chicken Tortilla Soup for my small group on Sunday)

Wednesday- Crock Pot Chicken and Mashed Potatoes Printable Crock Pot Chicken Recipe

Thursday- Mini Deep Dish Pizzas found on Dashing Dish

Friday-  Pesto Ranch Chicken with Pasta

Saturday- Shrimp and Grits

What are your go-to simple recipes for a busy week?

Weekly Dinner Menu: 4/22-4/27


Happy Monday! Here is the menu for this week. We have a few things going on so this one is only Monday through Friday.

Monday- Balsamic Chicken and Peppers from Your Home Based Mom (this is a lot like the sausage and pepper recipe I make)

Tuesday- Chicken Tacos- I am using a new crock pot recipe for the chicken. It is Cafe Rio Chicken from Chef in Training

Wednesday- Slow Cooker Creamy Ranch Pork Chops and Potatoes from Taste and Tell Blog- I am excited to try this one because we never really eat pork chops, they always end up too dry and chewy.

Thursday- Mini Bacon and Cheese Frittatas from Mother on a Mission

Friday-  Baked Chicken Taquitos

Saturday- Birthday Party!

I hope this helps you get some ideas on creating your own weekly dinner menu!

Have a wonderful week.
