Weekly Menu Plan: April 30- May 7
  • Pinterest

Wow! Can you believe the calendar is flipping itself right over into May! I feel like time is flying by so quickly. The older I get the faster it goes. I would imagine many of you feel the same way as well. :) Spring is in full force here in Utah, and it is so beautiful. We have been drinking in all of the great weather. Except for the past few days as it has been cloudy, rainy and yours truly has been sick in bed. It happens, as you know. Though I am happy to report that whilst encumbered with illness, my little boys and I watched a super fascinating documentary on The Ancient City of Petra, which I highly recommend, if you should so find yourself with ample time. Though I will warn you that if you try to portray the details of it (in great laborious clarity) to your spouse and older children when they arrive home from school they may look at you with boredom draining from their eyeballs and a look upon their faces that says “…woah, you have no life…”

Just a fair warning to you.

I have some great (pretty!) food for you this week, my friends. I couldn’t help but add something for your grill as well as some Frosted Peanut Butter Cookies that are over the top indulgent and magnificent. (Though nothing can quite compare to of the magnificence of The Ancient City of Petra. FYI. Stunning stuff, there. Truly.)

Loaded BBQ Beef Sandwiches (Crock Pot)

Boy, do I have a killer fabulous sandwich for you all today. These Loaded BBQ Beef Sandwiches have multiple layers of magnificent flavor and that is no lie, my friends. I opted to use the Homemade Sandwich Buns I posted monday (recipe HERE) but you can easily use store-bought rolls and they will still be wonderful. The […]

60 Minute Sandwich Buns

Homemade Sandwich Rolls have been on my Recipe Bucket list for a good long while now. I’ve tried many versions (including using my Fabulous French Bread Dough to make into buns…the dough was just too thick and heavy for a good sandwich roll, dang it!) Some recipes I’ve tried have been too light and didn’t hold […]

These Grilled Chicken and Pepper Quesadillas are my latest favorite. I can’t get enough of them! I use premade grilled chicken breasts (see picture below) but you can certainly grill your own […]

Cinnamon Roll Muffins

Sometimes, I really… really… …really get to craving a warm cinnamon roll complete with a gooey cinnamon filling and a heavenly maple glaze dripping off the edge. Yum! Unfortunately, I don’t always have time to whip up a batch of homemade cinnamon rolls and I have to make other arrangements, my friends. These wonderful Cinnamon […]
