Menu Planning Monday - Beach Prep
This is a short week as we prepare to go on vacation. We will be spending Mother's Day weekend at the beach. That is the best present I could get. Since we will be camping I need to plan and bring camp food as well. We eat out one meal a day when camping and try to keep the remaining meals real simple. We do have a camp stove but obviously can't do any baking.
The chicken roll ups were a huge hit. They looked nice too. I will make them again for company. They are super easy.
- Roll a chicken breast around some asparagus spears and secure with string
- Brush with sauce*
- Grill for ~15 minutes
The popcorn chicken was also a lose. Froggy who loves all chicken nuggets turned her nose up at "Mommy's nuggets" I am not sure if it was the seasoning in the breading or the fact that the breading did not adhere well. I will try another similar recipe to see.
The Home Menu
Sun -Pizza - Never got around to it last week

Tues - Brown Sugar Salmon, broccoli, rice
Wed - chicken nuggets, green beans, potatoes - the hope is that leftover nuggets will come on the trip as easy finger food.
