The mild temperatures have returned. So has BBQ season. Hallelujah! Spring and Summer tend to be two of my favorite seasons. Not because the flowers are blooming, birds are chirping and the days are warmer. Rather, it means that I can count on my husband assisting with the cooking. My husband isn’t handy in the kitchen. His in-kitchen masterpiece is mince and potatoes. He’s all about the barbecue, which is a-okay. I love to cook! The kitchen is my domain. I’m protective of it. No seriously, I am. Just from time to time I love a break of the same old, same old. Who doesn’t?!?

I will be receiving that break this week. We’re heading back to the basics with the meal plan. The nice weather has the kids and I outdoors. Less time in the house and time to plan dinner.

This week we’ll be having:

  • Chicken Fried Rice
  • Grilled Chicken w/ Mixed Greens
  • Tacos
  • Steak w/ Baked Potato and Mixed Greens
  • Chicken Schezaun Stir Fry
What’s on your menu this week?

    YAY! BBQ and corn on the cob season on it’s way!..Guess that means shorts and shaving my legs is also on the way. lol
    Thanks for the menu planning inspiration. My hubby is the master of the dinner domain but I’m seriously trying to revamp what we eat, the chicken schezaun stir fry sounds interesting – any particular recipe you can share?

      Oops… forgot to mention. For the stirfry I pick up a bottle of VH schezaun sauce. Sautee the chopped up chicken until cooked, add in a bag of green giant stir fry veg and pour over the bottle of sauce. Heat until warm and serve over brown rice.
