Here's your free weekly meal plan for May 28 through June 3! This week we look toward summer with ideas for grilling as well as some Memorial Day favorites!
Don't forget to check out the time saving tips to get the most out of these meal plans!
📅 Food Holidays
There's a lack of interesting holidays this week besides Memorial Day!
💭 Things to know
- Use frozen meatballs to get a head start on the honey garlic meatballs.
- Double the recipe for the Honey Garlic Meatballs and freeze half. You'll have an easy dinner when you need it.
- Make extra fried potatoes to serve with breakfast later in the week.
- Leftover grilled chicken and bourbon peaches are delicious when added to a salad. Or use the leftover chicken chopped up in the Frito chicken casserole.
- Lemon icebox pie freezes like a dream so make a couple and enjoy them all summer long.
- Freeze leftover biscuits and use them for the base to strawberry shortcake later on.
- If you don't want to make the stars for the fruit salad out of peaches you can use a tiny star cutter and make stars out of bananas like I did with the plain cheesecake.
🍹This week's cocktail
Honey Garlic Meatballs
These honey garlic meatballs are done in less than 30 minutes. Save even more time by using purchased meatballs!
Crispy Fried Potatoes
Nothing tastes better to me than these easy fried potatoes! Add some onion and bell pepper to give them even more flavor.
Oh Henry Bars
These old fashioned Oh Henry Bars are a cinch to make! Creamy chocolate and peanut butter fudge tops a crispy oatmeal and brown sugar layer.
Grilled Chicken and Bourbon Peaches
This is one of my favorite recipes for the grill! Grilled Chicken Breast is tender & juicy but when you add those bourbon peaches the whole dish becomes amazing.
Frito Corn Salad
Who's going to turn down a salad made with Fritos corn chips? This Frito corn salad is colorful and has lots of Tex-Mex flavor. It's perfect for potlucks because it feeds a crowd or people.
Plain Cheesecake with Fruit
This is my go to basic cheesecake recipe. It always comes out smooth and creamy with no cracks in the top!
Frito Chicken Casserole
Chicken, beans, cheese, and Fritos make this Frito Chicken Casserole a family favorite. You can assemble this ahead of time, too!
I love drop biscuits because they are easy and don't make a mess! No need to knead so the counters stay clean. Serve them with strawberry butter or apricot pineapple jam. I also use them as the base for my favorite strawberry shortcake.
Lemon Ice Box Pie
This easy no bake Lemon Icebox pie has just 3 ingredients! It's so rich and creamy, plus you can make it ahead of time and freeze it! Serve it thawed or frozen - it's always a big hit!
If you are grilling burgers on Memorial Day you need this classic macaroni salad on the side! It's creamy and delicious with plenty of green olives. You may also want to try my bbq macaroni salad for a little change.
I love this easy summer fruit salad because not only is it delicious with the honey lime dressing but it's also pretty and festive for all the summer holidays, picnics, potlucks, and church suppers!
Fresh Strawberry Pie
You've got to have pie on Memorial Day and my pick is this fresh strawberry pie with Jello like the one they used to serve at Shoneys! It really lets the berry flavor shine through.
Slow Cooker Root Beer Chicken
Perfect for those busy weeknights! Root beer chicken is delicious as a hot sandwich or in a wrap.
Cauliflower Broccoli Salad
Cauliflower broccoli salad is sweet and tangy with lots of crunch,
Circus Animal Ice Cream
I've always loved those frosted circus animal cookies and they're even better in this circus animal ice cream. It's fun, it's pink, and it's ice cream - you can't ask for much more than that.
One Pan Tortellini Alfredo
It just doesn't get much easier than this creamy tortellini Alfredo!
There's nothing like homemade garlic knot rolls! They're not hard to make and they are just so yummy!
Sweet Corn Pound Cake
I know it sounds weird but this sweet corn pound cake is flavored with fresh corn and it has such a delicate flavor!
Chicken Fried Steak
Chicken fried steak is a Texas classic and a staple around here! It's easier to make than you might think.
Creamy mashed potatoes and gravy are the perfect accompaniment!
Imagine the chewiest, gooey-est brownie with a swirl of salty peanut butter and m&ms in every bite. Now go make these m&m Brownies!
