Welcome to the weekly meal plan, friends! This week, as we look ahead to Memorial Day, we’re bringing you plenty of indoor-outdoor foods. Use your grill, or just take the food outside. With the weather warming up, why not enjoy dining al fresco?
Lamb Loin Chops Grill Recipe | Pook's Pantry Recipe Blog
These cook in 12 minutes. Attention: 12 minutes! And because they're Cheryl's recipe, you know they'll taste great and come with excellent instructions on how to make these bad boys!
Grilled Pork Steak
First lamb, now pork! I told you we're all about the grilling this week! Featuring citrus juices, garlic and herbs, these guys cook in, are you ready? 6 MINUTES! Thank you, Kirsten, for helping to get dinner on the table asap!
Smashed Bacon Double Cheeseburgers
I love these burgers so much! These are smashed burgers, so they're better made on a griddle or in a stainless steel pan than on the grill--unless you have a griddle for your grill. Then game on! These guys have caramelized onions, melty cheese and thick cut bacon. Super tasty, you guys.
Chicken, Strawberry and Apple Summer Salad
This salad is definitely a main course, and it's made easy with roasted chicken (hello, rotisserie chicken if you don't have any time), a honey vinaigrette, and toasted ramen for some crunch. Hello, delicious salad!
Patatas Bravas Hash Brown Crust Pizza | Pook's Pantry Recipe Blog
I love this hash brown crust pizza from Pook's Pantry. Gluten free, so that's pretty awesome right there, and you're still eating whole food and not a mix of other starches to take the place of wheat flour. Top it how you like or follow Cheryl's lead with romesco sauce, manchego cheese, serrano ham or prosciutto, and charred scallions. Magic.
Soft Dinner Rolls | Garlic Chive Potato Rolls
Every meal is made more special with the addition of homemade rolls, and these potato rolls flavored with garlic and chive are soft and fluffy. Perfect for making small sandwiches with your grilled meats or simply eating warm with a pat of butter. So good. Makes 12 large rolls or 24 small slider buns. Or you can even throw caution to the wind and made 9 burger buns with this recipe.
Patriotic Strawberry Bruschetta
Y'all. Grilled angel food cake topped with homemade almond pudding, lemon curd, berries, and sliced almonds! What a fun do it yourself dessert from The Speckled Palate!
And there you have it. A delicious meal plan to help get you through the week.
Please let us know what you’re planning on making–and how you like it once you make it. We love to hear from you!
Thanks for hanging out with the Dinner Divas, friends. Take care, and have a lovely day.
