Good Morning and Happy Friday! This week on Dinner Divas, we have a new contributor to the menu plan! The Speckled Palate has joined us. She is located in Dallas, Texas and I couldn’t be happier to have her in our group. One of our Divas is recovering from surgery and is taking a break while she rests at home, we are sending her all the good vibes and hopes for a speedy recovery.
Make sure you are subscribed so you don’t miss a single recipe!
Here’s how it works: Every Friday morning, a new menu plan will show up in your email. It will consist of 5 dinner options, plus 2 extras. Those two extras could be side dishes, dessert, drinks, etc. The Dinner Divas weekly menu plans will feature (mostly) healthy, seasonal foods that don’t take all day to prepare. Getting the weekly menu delivered to your inbox on Friday morning gives you the chance to make your shopping list and get organized for the week ahead. I’d love to hear from you & see your creations! Post a pic using #DinnerDivas and tag @pookspantry! I hope this weekly menu plan provides inspiration and makes life a little easier… one meal at a time.
THE MENU PLAN:
I am starting off this week with my Moroccan Chicken Meal Prep Bowls. Who says eating a salad has to be boring? This chicken is so full of flavor. Meal prep makes a huge difference in my daily life and when you get into the swing of it, it’s a breeze. This healthy, delicious salad will keep you full, keep you on track and most importantly, will not leave you feeling weighed down during the afternoon.
Next this week is Hasselback Stuffed Chicken Comfortably Domestic. Everyone eats their share of chicken, I know we do. Sometimes, we all get in a rut and need a new recipe for our favorite fowl. Well, here it is! This chicken looks so delicious, I can’t wait to try it.
Pastry Chef Online has made her Best Poppy Seed Party Ham Biscuits. Perfect for some big football game happening this weekend… I’m only here for the food.
Our newest Diva, The Speckled Palate has Apple Cider Pulled Pork with Apple Cabbage Slaw. This classic combo of apples and pork comes together beautifully and that apple cabbage slaw is the perfect compliment. This is a great combination- either on it’s own or on a bun. I’m tickled pink to have her here!
Comfortably Domestic is back with her Sausage Stir Fry. This is the perfect busy weeknight dinner. This is one to keep in your back pocket!
And now, let’s get to the desserts. Because, really, isn’t that what we really want?
For those that love mint & chocolate together – this one’s for you. I love Thin Mints, Andes, York Peppermint Patties, Mint Chip ice cream, etc. So, I made cupcakes that taste like some of my favorite treats. We love that combo of mint and chocolate. These Devil’s Food Cupcakes with Mint Buttercream are incredibly good and a perfect recipe to pin for St Patrick’s Day.
Finally, we wrap up the week with another sweet from Pastry Chef Online. Her Coffee Butterscotch Ice Cream Sauce is the perfect topping for a scoop of good vanilla. Or just eat it with a spoon.
Thank you for spending some time with me today, I’ll see you on Monday with a brand new recipe!
