Menu Plan Monday ~ May 20/13
Hey everyone! Today is a holiday for us Canadians so I’ll be relaxing with my family finally enjoying some sunny (yay!) weather. I’m not even going to do my usual Monday morning grocery shop. Gasp! Ha-ha I’m going to put it off until Tuesday instead. Sometimes you just have to be wild and crazy lol.
So a couple of weeks ago I asked you all for some tips on peeling hard boiled eggs. I appreciate all your help. I tried many of the suggestions including adding salt to the water, using older eggs and rolling the eggs on the counter before peeling. Unfortunately I didn’t have luck with any of them. But one reader emailed me a link to a video with a really neat trick to peeling eggs. You can find that video here. Basically it involves peeling away a tiny little bit of the shell on either side of the egg and then blowing the egg out. It sounds crazy but it worked! No kidding. I had to blow a little harder than suggested (my face went red) but I eventually got it. So very cool!
I may have mentioned this one before but last week’s recipe highlight goes to the Baked Tacos recipe. Oh my word are these ever good. I gobbled three up and had more the next day for lunch and I’m really not a fan of leftovers for lunch normally :) The trick to these is to use the flat bottom taco shells so they stand up easily. YUM!!! Sorry I hate them so fast I forgot to take a picture.
Menu Planning with Pinterest:
I found this great tutorial online on How to Use Pinterest to Meal Plan. Be sure to check it out if you are looking for ways to simplify your menu planning process.
Plus to help you further, I also found a fun site called Made From Pinterest where you’ll find plenty of recipes to try from Pinterest.
