Happy May! I hope all of you are enjoying spring with all the lovely flowers blooming and more things opening up across the country. Disneyland actually opened this week, but I’m not quite ready for that adventure just yet. I think I’ll stick to family gatherings with visits from cousins that have been vaccinated, and I haven’t seen in over a year. We have a baby boom in our family with not only my new granddaughter, but my cousin’s children are all having babies too. Holiday time is going to be filled with little pattering feet and kids crawling and cooing to discover their own voices, and Santa will be joyfully busy this Christmas for sure.
The menu this week is filled with fresh fantastic food – something for everyone. If you’re a salmon lover, like me, this cornflake crusted fish will definitely hit your soft spot. Tuesday we have tacos of course, but not just any tacos…they’re loaded with beef, mushrooms and swiss chard – something you might not have expected, but should try! Wednesday is my chicken caprese with all its cheesy goodness, and Thursday is a simple miso glazed pork tenderloin that you can whip up in a hurry. By Friday, it’s time to wind down and enjoy your weekend and an easy shrimp lettuce cup recipe will surely fit the bill. Saturday or possibly Sunday, it’s time to bake up some lovely muffins that are studded with carrots, zucchini and crunchy hazelnuts. Now how does that sound? Enjoy your week.
Monday – If you haven’t tried this easy salmon dinner, you don’t know what you’re missing! Cornflakes give it a super crunch, while keeping the fish delightfully moist.
Tuesday – It wouldn’t be Tuesday without Tacos! These tacos are loaded with charred beef, mushrooms and swiss chard for a tad of bitter greens. The contrasting flavors make them scream with flavor.
Wednesday – This one skillet caprese chicken is cheesy good and made in just a handful of minutes. You can find some hot house or vine ripened tomatoes to use for this recipe at either the farmer’s market or grocery store.
Thursday – Miso paste adds so much umami goodness to a simple pork tenderloin and this meal is complete in no time because this cut of meat roasts up in minutes in the oven. You might even have some leftovers for sandwiches or quesadillas at lunchtime.
Friday – These easy-peasy lettuce cups are done in a jiffy and loaded with Asian taste. There’s no need to go out to a restaurant to enjoy this meal, when you can make it much faster and healthier at home.
Saturday – Muffins loaded with springtime ingredients are just what you might be craving on a Saturday morning, and if you have any left, you can enjoy them on Sunday too.
