Menu plan for week of 9/13

You would think that since last weekend was a holiday weekend, I would have had plenty of time to update the blog. Instead, it got away from me. I’m back with a mix of old and new for this week.

Sunday

Crab Imperial and skillet corn (actually we are taking Samantha out for dinner for her birthday tonight but I made this last weekend and it was so good that I have to share the recipe)

Monday

Spicy beef and rice noodle salad

Tuesday

Spicy chicken pizza (one of Samantha’s favorites)

Wednesday

Honey salmon and steamed broccoli

Thursday

Grilled pork tacos

Beach cooking

We are at the beach for the week. There are 5 of us and unfortunately, one of us does not like seafood (Samantha). I’m trying to create meals that give everyone something they like.

Here is what we are doing:

Sunday

Dinner salad bar

Monday

Make your own pizza

Tuesday

Green Goddess shrimp salad

Wednesday

Grill night – chicken, burgers and hot dogs with sweet potato fries
