Menu Plan - Week of March 28

It's Holy Week! The week we remember and celebrate the incredible sacrifice made by - and through - our Savior. I have been eagerly anticipating this week. Little man is on Spring Break, my mom is retiring this week, DH gets a 3 day weekend to celebrate Good Friday, and we have a fun trip planned to visit friends. There are so many wonderful things happening in my life this week and reasons to celebrate. The absolute best thing about the coming week though will be the Easter celebration - not the bunnies, Peeps, or plastic colored eggs. Our Easter celebration will focus on our risen Savior and how we can serve Him. I can't wait! Yes, we will eat this week too ...

Weeknight Dinners:
  • Grilled chicken salad - I cooked up 3 lb of honey Dijon marinated chicken and have a huge salad in the 'fridge. Put them together an call it dinner!
  • Grilled pork chops with pineapple salsa, asparagus, and Buttery Bread Sticks
  • * Pork Carnitas with lettuce, salsa, cheese, etc.
  • I would like to make White Chicken Enchiladas on Friday, but I highly suspect we'll end up at mom and dad's grilling out. Maybe I'll just bookmark the recipe for another night.
Breakfast, Baking, Freezer:
  • I have about 8 lb split chicken in the freezer - I plan to thaw it, cook it in the slow cooker, shred it, and plunk it back in the freezer for future use. I got it when it was on sale and was too lazy to prep it properly. Hence, it's still in the freezer.
  • Strawberries and Cream Bread (I may enough berries for 2 loaves)
  • Buttermilk Ranch Dressing
  • Cinnamon Rolls (over the weekend)


  1. Sounds like a wonderful menu! I am definitely going to try the strawberries and cream bread soon!! Hope your Easter week is joyous and blessed.

  2. Wanted to let you know that I made the Strawberry & Cream bread today and it is OUT OF THIS WORLD good!! I also whipped up a batch of the strawberry butter that someone recommended in the recipe very good. Thanks for this link - I'm sure it will become a family favorite!
    (On a side note, I really love the music that plays when I click on your site. Very uplifting!)

  3. Thank you Holly - I am so glad you stopped by and continue to do so each week. The strawberry butter is amazing! I should have posted that link too :) Happy Easter!!
