Menu Plan #7 Celebrate Summer

This week’s Menu Plan comes as the school year is drawing to a close and summer vacations and grilling season begins. We have a full menu plan for our Memorial Day celebration included.

Our menu plan this week includes; burgers, hot dogs, BBQ wings and homestyle french fries as well as an easy to prepare Patriotic dessert.

Weekend Breakfast

Apple Banana Oat Nut Muffins. Find this recipe at www.intelligentdomestications.com

Apple Banana Oat Nut Muffins are great for weekend breakfast. Make enough on Saturday morning so you have some for Sunday also.


It’s a relaxing weekend so we’re grilling hot dogs! Speaking of hot dogs, have you visited our Hot Dog Tour page? It’s a fun thing we do when we travel.

One of our favorite side dishes for hot dogs is these Oven Baked Homestyle Fries.

Grilled Cabbage & Bacon with Waffle Iron Cornbread

The texture and flavor of Waffle Iron Cornbread makes it a fun side dish perfect for soups and vegetable dishes like our Grilled Cabbage & Bacon.

You can make your cornbread in the Waffle Iron, no oil needed! www.intelligentdomestications.com


Easy Swedish Meatballs

Swedish Meatballs is a new recipe in our home and has already been requested several times. I searched far and wide for recipes before finally creating my own. 

 Italian butter with bread goes great with our Swedish Meatballs.


Two Meat Three Ingredient Polynesian Dinner served over a bed of rice.intelligentdomestications.com

Quick & Easy Two Meat Three Ingredient Polynesian Dinner  is a dish I learned from my Mom. It’s an easy to prepare meal. 

Thursday 59

Crabmeat Stew with oyster cracker.Recipe can be found at intelligentdomestictions.com

Crabmeat Stew is a family favorite recipe which has been served at our dinner table for many years. You’ll want to save the recipe as it’s especially popular for the fall menu. We can’t wait that long to enjoy it though so we eat it year round.


3 Ingredient Crockpot BBQ Chicken Wings.1 at www.intelligentdomestications.com

3 Ingredient BBQ Chicken Wings is a special treat for my hubby on our Friday night menu. Our side dish will be California vegetables which I cheat and grab from the freezer section of the grocery store. If I prepare a whole bunch of these wings, my hubby wouldn’t even want a side dish to go with them. 


It’s Memorial Day weekend so we will be grilling out! Our Saturday Menu includes our Tomato & Red Onion Jelly Burgers served with Black Eye Pea Salsa and Oven Baked Sweet Potato Chips with Red Hot Patriotic Poke Cupcakes for dessert. Those cupcakes are super easy to prepare, you’ll want to save that recipe for later.

Our Memorial Day Menu plan includes Grilled Red Onion Tomato Jelly burgers, Baked sweet potato chips, Black eye pea Salsa and Red Hot Patriotic Poke Cupcakes

Black Eye Pea Salsa

Tomato & Red Onion Jelly Burger

Homemade Crescent Apple Turnovers

Yes, I know we do have a dessert for our Memorial Day Menu plan but that won’t be until next Saturday.  We usually make our weekly dessert early in the week. These Apple Turnovers will be long gone before our Memorial Day cookout.
