MEAL PLAN TIPS:
As we remember and honor those who have made sacrifices for our country this Memorial Day weekend, my family usually tries to spend time together and with close family and friends. When we get together, we try to cook many of our favorite foods. We are certainly starting off the weekend with some tasty dishes and hope to enjoy some leftovers this coming week too!
Baked Crispy Buffalo Wings: What a way to start off the weekend! These are so crispy and delicious without being deep fried. They are freezer friendly too so you can make a bunch and freeze them if you wish!
Buffalo Chicken Dip: Prep the dip the day before and then just pop into the oven to bake and serve!
Sheet Pan Nachos: So easy and ready in minutes, very minimal prep needed.
Restaurant Style Salsa: So quick and easy, but you can chop up the veggies earlier in the day if you wish.
Homemade Hamburgers and Fixings: I’ll make my hamburger patties ahead of time and keep in the fridge until ready to grill. Prepare all of the fixings ahead of time, seal in containers and refrigerate.
Heirloom Tomato Salad with Charred Corn and Okra: I love this salad so much – it’s even on the cover of the Add a Pinch Cookbook! The corn can be cut off the cob and and okra sliced and set aside in the refrigerator. I make my Pepper Jelly and keep on hand a lot, so this dressing will be quick to mix and use atop this beautiful salad!
Grilled Chicken: I will have my Grilled Chicken Marinade made ahead and our chicken marinating for the best, most delicious and juicy chicken! I’m grilling a couple of extra chicken breasts for a recipe for supper another night this week.
Sweet & Spicy Chicken Wraps: These come together easily with chicken breasts I grilled on Monday and saved for these. The Pineapple Jalepeno Cream Cheese Spread is super fast to mix up with only four ingredients. This is sweet and spicy and perfect for summer!
Easy Slow Cooker Ribs: These delicious ribs get fall of the bone tender and are so easy to make! I love to make them with my Homemade BBQ Sauce.
Coleslaw: This comes together so quickly but is also a great make-ahead side dish!
Air Fryer Mexican Street Corn: So simple to make in the air fryer in minutes! Amazing flavor and a favorite side we will enjoy a lot in the summer.
Fresh Pineapple Sorbet: Made with minimal, fresh ingredients, make this ahead of time and keep in freezer until time to serve. Amazing flavor and perfect end to the meal!
