Happy Memorial Day! I hope that you all filled your weekend with fun, family, friends, and good food. I apologize for such a late post, but my family was in town for the weekend so my priorities were with them.
Now that the long weekend is coming to a close, I am forced to plan for this coming week. In Boston, our weather forcast for this week looks beautiful! But there appears to be a heat wave of close to 90 coming in toward the end of the week. I hate cooking inside on hot weather days, so I'm trying to plan a menu around grilling out on those warmer days.
Below you will find my meal plan for this week along with any corresponding links to the recipes that inspired my menu. Again, please forgive me for any last minute changes due to the needs of my family, but they always come first!
Week 21 - May 27, 2013
Sunday - memorial day cookout: nitrate free brats, chorizo, and hot dogs with a fresh spinach & tomato pasta salad, and vegetables & dip
Monday - leftovers
Tuesday- hard shell turkey tacos (hubby worked late last week, so I froze the turkey for this week instead) with mexican chopped salad and roasted broccoli (salad recipe from Food Network magazine, but I can't seem to find a link online)

Thursday - grilled greek yogurt marinated chicken breasts with a watermelon, arugula, and feta salad
