Noel’s Kitchen Tips:What’s For Dinner Week Of May 10-14, 2010

May 10, 2010 · Posted in Menus 

Noel’s Kitchen Tips May Menu is the perfect prelude to family summer picnics, BBQ’s, graduations and family get togethers. We have some wonderful events going on this month~ Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, National Bike To Work Day and Memorial Day.

On Mother’s Day, I was showered with hugs, kisses and homemade gifts from the kids. There is nothing a mother appreciates more than a gift made from love. On our Sunday Family Dinner Menu: Mother’s Day Roast with a simple and quick Gravy, Mashed Potatoes and a Spinach, Feta , Blueberry and Cranberry Salad with a Raspberry Vinegrette. For dessert a Strawberry Trifle Delight. (*Recipe for Salad below.)

This week’s Menu features Easy Weeknight Meals you can create for your family in a matter of minutes if you prepare on your Meal Planning Day.

Monday: Baked Mashed Potato Omelet with Tomato and Feta(using leftover mashed potatoes and a little gravy from Sunday’s Roast.)

Tuesday: Whole Wheat Strawberry Crepes with Vanilla Yogurt Sauce (Crêpes can be made in advance and refrigerated. Just reheat in the microwave for 20 seconds.)

Wednesday:Deep Dish Chicken Pot Pie (This dish is can be made ahead and frozen on one of your Meal Planning Days.)

Thursday: Black Bean and Rice Burritos

Friday: Family Pizza Night~Make Your Own Mini Pizzas with your favorite toppings.

Spinach, Feta, Blueberry and Cranberry Salad


1 9-ounce bag Spinach (found in produce dept.)

3/4 cup Feta cheese(I used garlic flavored in this recipe)

1/2 cup fresh bluberries, washed and drained

1/2 cup dried cranberries

3/4 cup walnuts (pecans, sunflower seeds or soy nuts can be substituted)

1/2 cup Raspberry Vinegrette
