Menu Plan March 31-April 6

Spring has finally arrived in the Deep South, and I hope it's here to stay. My folks up in West Virginia got snow last night and this morning - perhaps winter's final farewell?

One of the things I most look forward to about warmer weather is grilling. My husband is the grill master around here. He's got chicken, steaks and burgers perfectly timed so they're tender and delicious. We often cook up several kinds of meats then use the leftovers throughout the week for quick lunches.

You want to know the best marinade for chicken and steak? Italian dressing. No kidding, it's amazing on both. And it will work for pork, too. You can use bottled dressing from the store or you can whip up some of your own. I'll share a great recipe later this week for that.

Now on to the week's menu:

One pot spaghetti, garlic bread

Oven baked chicken fajitas, Mexican rice

Baked egg rolls, garlic sesame noodles

Chicken meatball soup, crusty bread

Loaded jambalaya

Grilled chicken

Roast beef sandwiches

  1. Happy Menu Plan Monday!
    Hope your spring weather decides to stick around too. We've been enjoying our spring since last month.
