Menu Plan Monday ~ May 24th

And another week goes by, just like that.  I hope you all had a most excellent weekend.  Today is a holiday for us (Victoria Day) so we have one more day off….yay!  No special plans but that’s what I love about it 🙂

Last weeks menu highlight is being awarded to two of the recipes I tried because they were both so delicious.  The Have-It-Your-Way Tacos and the Special Spinach Salad were terrific and I am recommending both recipes 🙂

The other day when I was blog cruising I found this awesome tutorial on how to make the cutest Meal Planner Menu Board.  If you are the crafty type you will definitely want to check it out.  It would also make a terrific gift idea as well.

Here’s whats on our menu this week, another keeping it super simple edition:

Monday: Thai Beef Salad with Crispy Noodles (missed from last week)

Tuesday: Salmon Quesadillas

Wednesday: BBQ Chicken and Cheddar Sandwiches

Thursday: Leftover buffet

Friday: Make your own Pita Bread Pizzas

Saturday: Spinach Salad with Tortellini, Dried Cranberries, Almonds and Feta

Sunday: Church potluck ~ Bread Bowl Seafood Dip


Menu Plan Monday guidelines and banner selections are here.

    We do pita bread pizzas a lot, as well as French bread pizzas, English muffin pizzas, tortilla pizzas… I guess we like pizza at our house, lol. Heading over to check out your salmon quesadillas- we love salmon too!

    The Salmon quesadillas sounds really good. Maybe that’s the way to get my kids eat salmon.
    I love making pita pizzas. It’s so quick and delicious.

    As usual, your church potluck recipe tempts me most of all. I have an amazing crawfish dip that we thin out to use as a pasta sauce. Maybe I need to post that one next week.

    I am new here and just posted my weekly dinner menu. I wanted to include my recipes but wasn’t sure of the best way to do that. Do I just include them in my post? I noticed most are linked. Thanks.

    We love salmon quesadillas! I made something similar for Christmas Eve dinner. I was looking to use salmon in a way that I could “stretch” it a bit. I didn’t cook the salmon in advance, as in your recipe, I just spread cream cheese, scattered smoked salmon, and added fresh dill. Put the second tortilla on top then cook. This was a HIT and my kids keep asking me when we’re having this again! Thanks for the reminder, I may surprise them with this when school is out.

    Thanks for some more menu ideas for spinach — I have a lot growing in my garden, so I’ll be needing them soon!

    Joining the hop again for my second week! Wondering when you put your link up? Is it the same time every week? I always check first thing Monday, but then by the time I see it, there are already 150 linkers!

    I had planned to make Soft Tacos this week until I saw the recipe for Enchilada Lasagna in the June/July issue of TOH. I switched to that instead, and boy am I ever glad I did! It was So Yummy and my Family Loved it! 🙂 I am going to post the recipe on my blog today.

    I’m also looking forward to trying the TOH recipe for Poppyseed Chicken Salad this week. I have a feeling it is going to be more of a girl recipe! Don’t think it will quite fill up my BIG BOYS, so I added baked potatoes to the menu. Any other idea for what I could add to a main dish salad to fill up man sized bellies??? 🙂
