MEAL PLAN TIPS:
As we remember 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. And that involves cooking some 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!
Crispy Chicken Wings: These are from the cookbook and are so crispy and delicious without being deep fried! They are freezer friendly too so you can make a bunch and freeze them for up to 3 months!
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.
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!
Cilantro Lime Avocado Shrimp Salad: This is such an easy, tasty salad for summer! It’s ready in minutes, but you could make the salad earlier, add the dressing ingredients and toss right before serving for supper.
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!
Leftovers or Family Night Out
Thank you and God bless to all those who gave so much for our country as we remember your sacrifice this Memorial Day.
