Menu Plan–May 5

Just two weeks left in the semester, and it’s finally starting to feel a bit like spring. We even have little rhubarb shoots and chives making an appearance in our garden.  Yippee! 

Last week, I had the chance to make one of our family favorites for my parents – this Lazy Sunday Casserole.  It was a hit. 

We also brought back an old favorite – Philly Cheesesteak Melts.  I made the beef in the crockpot and the melts were easy to put together when I got home from work. 

But, the best meal of the week went to a new Sweet Potato & Kale Chicken Patty.  My sister and I made them last Saturday, and then I made them again on Monday night!

This week I have a lot more new recipes on our menu.  Sometimes it’s just fun to try new things.
