Hi! You are back to see a new easy weekly dinner menu? I’m so glad to see you. Really!
Do you know what is the hardest part of writing my menu every week? It’s not thinking of food because I’m ALWAYS thinking of food. It’s trying to think of a catchy tagline for the title. I ran out of good ideas about 30 weeks ago. Should I just drop the tagline completely? Or maybe make it the same every week? If you have an opinion, lay it on me! I’m clearly getting desperate if “crunchy and easy” is the best I could do this week.
Oh, but there is crunch! You are going to love the Fish and Chips sandwiches that are new for this week. Also, don’t miss the Standup Tacos! My in-laws are in town, and I made those for dinner last night. They were a hit, but it was SO hard to resist pulling a plate aside for photos. I’ve been wanting to make them again for a while to get better pictures, but I didn’t want to reveal at family dinner what a weirdo I have become. I’ll have to make another batch soon when I don’t have an audience for the photo shoot. Now, let’s get to some dinners!
- Fish and Chips Sandwiches
- Cajun Salmon Alfredo
- Slow Cooker Meatballs with Spinach Mushroom Sauce
- Chicken and Stars Soup
- Bacon Cheddar Ranch Burgers (perhaps with Cajun Oven Fries?)
- Standup Oven Tacos
- Crunchy Chicken Noodle Casserole
these look great :-) The fish and chip sandwiches are especially fun. Re: tagline. You could open it up to your readers, having them suggest a tag. Give a sneak peek of the recipes (titles only?), ask for suggestions, and pick your favorite. Or spin your recipes to match reader suggestions. Takes the pressure off of you ;-)
I love the audience participation ideas, Liz, but that might require me to be more prepared than I actually am! I usually get my menus together Friday night/Saturday morning, which doesn’t leave much time for polling readers. I’ll give it some thought though. I could definitely learn a lot from you about engaging people in conversations on FB and in comments!
the wink at the end of my comment was acknowledging that it would be probably be more work to spin your recipes to a given theme. But it could be fun. :-D

I am eyeing up that Slow Cooker Meatballs with Spinach Mushroom Sauce recipe! I can’t say no to anything slow cooker!
If you like spinach, I think you will really like it! Thanks for coming over, Pamela :)
Don’t stress too much over the taglines…the wonderful pictures and recipes do your talking for you…but, I have to admit…’easy’ always catches my eye because I definitely like to eat…cook, not so much, lol, so simply tasty dishes are always appreciated! Thanks for the great ideas.
Thank you, ELF! I might drop the tag lines since “easy” is already in there every week ;) I’m all about simple dishes, so I hope you are finding lots you want to try. Have a good week!
