Weekly Eats

My menu is up and ready to go for this week! I sat down with my Pinterest food boards and looked for some inspiration, as well as my freezer, fridge, and pantry to check and see what I have waiting to be used. Had I known that the weather was going to be back deck-margarita-drinking-let's fire up the grill-weather, I would have planned for more meals for my grillmaster to cook outdoors. The warm weather is here to stay, at least through this week, so you better believe we'll be taking advantage of it. Someone in our house has a birthday this week and I think that a weekend full of fun and cupcakes is in order.

Tuesday- Thai Flank Steak + Asian slaw with peanut dressing (similar)

Wednesday- Grilled chicken + Spinach strawberry salad with goat cheese, pistachios, and balsamic

Thursday- Pulled pork taco salad with guacamole

Friday- My birthday!!!

Saturday- TBD

Sunday- Grilled steaks with pepper & caper salsa + baby greens salad

A few other bites I might make this week:
Greek Yogurt Peanut Butter Dip (for apple dipping!)

Also, if you're and iPhone user, and still stumped for recipes this week, check out Giada's new app, Giada's Daily Bite. It's a free app to promote her new cookbook being released next week. For 15 days, there is a new recipe posted daily! Monday's parsley garlic butter and Sunday's pepper & caper salsa were both featured on this app. If you're like me, you'll also get a little chuckle from the "sound bites" section, where you can learn the proper Italian pronunciation from Giada herself!

Don't forget to link up with Molly over at Duchess of Fork! I'm also shaking it up and linking up with Rachel of In No Simple Language, too! So many great menu link ups. is the LAST DAY to enter my Thirty-One Giveaway. Hop on over to {this post} if you want to win a fabulous Thermal Tote.

Happy menu planning and happy Monday!


  1. Yum! A strawberry spinach salad is so delicious and simple. Even Jason loves it...I need to remember to add it to my menu.

  2. Thai Flank Steak sounds to die for! I may need to save this recipe!
