Meal Planning Monday #134


It's May.  How is it May?  I'm so pumped that it is May!  April has never really been my favorite month...it rains a lot here and it's muggy.  But May?  I adore May!  I changed out my sidebars on the side and across the top to reflect my May mood.  Make sure you click on one of these...




...to get inspired for May.  Plus, check out my Pinterest boards too...




All of our recipes this week make me think of May.  Enjoy friends!

Grilled Italian Sausages with Jalapeno Marmalade are just thrown on the grill and enjoyed on a busy weeknight.  Easy Peasy!


Crunchy BBQ Brisket Tacos...there's BBQ sauce, there's salsa, there's crunchy...I mean?  Does it get better than that?


We eat a lot of burgers this time of year, and this one is one of my faves...Pineapple Guacamole Burgers are a little spicy and a little sweet (and a whole lot of delicious!).


Sausage and Shells.  A big bowl on a Thursday night and I'm a happy girl.


I love me some coconut...Coconut Crusted Chicken with Orange Marmalade would make a fun Friday supper!



If I had to name one bundt cake for May...it would be my Margarita. Margarita Bundt Cake and May just go together.


And for a bonus dessert this week...


...my cousin Brooke's Lemon Blueberry Cream Pie.


Have a great May Monday!

Bacon & Chive Muffins


Nothing goes faster than a savory muffin.

Whether I bring these to church, make them at home for breakfast or bring them to an appetizer exchange...savory muffins go FAST!

These little muffins have shredded cheddar, bacon and chives in them. #ohmy

Make them and watch them go quickly too!


This recipe makes about 20 muffins.


Shopping List
10 slices of bacon, uncooked and chopped (it will cook up when you bake the muffins!)
4 cups of Bisquick
2 1/2 cups milk
2 eggs
1½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
about 1/4 cup of snipped chives (just a nice big bunch to throw in there)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line 2 (12-count) muffin tins with muffin liners.  Lightly spray over them with Pam.  Set aside.

In one mixing bowl, add in your uncooked chopped bacon.  Next, stir in your dry Bisquick mix.  Using a wooden spoon, combine the two together.  Stir them around together just a little bit so that the Bisquick is coating the bacon ever so slightly.

In a second bowl, whisk together your milk and eggs.  Slowly pour this mixture over your bacon mixture.  Stir together until everything is combined.  Next, stir in your cheese and chives.

Divide batter (it will be lumpy!) among your muffin tins.  I was able to get 20 muffins out of this batter.

Place muffins in oven and bake about 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

Remove from oven and serve immediately or store.

Crock Pot Enchilada Tacos


Without a doubt, the recipe we make the most at our house is my Crock Pot Chicken Tacos.

We make them because they're easy, they don't heat up the kitchen, everyone can top their taco any way they like (so they're a crowd-pleaser), and they're good no matter what season it is.  

Crock Pot Chicken Tacos are our fave!  

So...I thought we needed a beefy version (you could always sub with ground turkey though!), thus, I made these yummy Crock Pot Enchilada Tacos.  Everything goes into the slow cooker and later that night, you have dinner.  Done.  It's just assembling friends.  And after a busy day, don't you just want to assemble?  I know that I sure do!  Enjoy!


This recipe serves four.


Shopping List
1½ pounds ground beef, browned up and crumbly
1 (10 oz) can of enchilada sauce (we used mild)
1 (16 oz) can of chili beans
about 8 flour tortillas
Romaine lettuce
Guacamole (we love Tab's version here)
Shredded Pepper or Montery Jack cheese
chopped green onions for garnishing

In your slow cooker, add in your browned ground beef.  Next, stir in your enchilada sauce and chili beans.  Cover and cook on low about 6 to 8 hours or on high about 3 hours.

When you're ready to serve, you take a tortilla (I like to warm mine in the microwave for about 20 seconds between two damp paper towels) top it with Romaine lettuce, a little guacamole, your ground beef mixture, a sprinkle of cheese and chopped green onions.

Done.

Dinner is done.  And it's delicious too!

Just another easy little supper recipe to make your busy nights a breeze.

Happy Friday!
