Menu 4/11 - 4/17

Monday, April 11, 2011

A big shout-out to my sister AnnaLisa who put together the new visual indexes for the blog!   It's something that I've wanted to do for ages and never found the time.  I'm hoping that they'll make finding recipes easier than ever here on the Recipe Shoebox!    This menu is mostly filled with easy dishes, since life seems to be getting busier and busier around our house!

Monday--Avocado Chicken Salad--today's supposed to be 85 degrees, so we're breaking out the summer fare! 

Tuesday--Breakfast:Whole Grain Oatmeal Waffles with fresh fruit--a healthy hot breakfast

Dinner:  Mexican Skillet Rice (new)

Lion House Corn Bread--we love this super moist corn bread

Wednesday--Easiest Chicken Enchiladas Ever- never mind the ugly picture, this one is a meal that takes 30 minutes beginning to end...perfect for a crazy weeknight

Quinoa Salad (new)

Thursday - Chicken Pasta Salad--one of our family favorites and chock full of veggies

Friday--Bruschetta Pizza

Tropical Mango Smoothie (new)

Saturday--Grilled Indian Style Kebabs--we're starting to grill more now that the weather's getting nicer and we can't wait to eat these kebabs again

Sunday--Breakfast: Quiche Lorraine-

Dinner:  Skillet Lasagna--my family like this simple take on lasagna

Dessert:  White Chocolate Raspberry Bars--oh yeah!  These are good!

Great menu planning!! I was just trying to figure mine out for this week - that chicken pasta salad and avocado chicken salad both look fantastic and like something that I would definitely enjoy - maybe I'll get to try one of those this week! :)

I love that you have the visual index -- I might have to pick your sister's brain!!

Great week - I'm interested in the new salad recipe.
