Spring Menu Planning

May feels like a lovely time to plan a Spring menu.  Of course, down here where I live it is 86 degress Fahrenheit today and we have been swimming in the community pool, but spring eating nontheless!

Here are some thoughts and links I have been perusing:


Spring breakfasts from the Food Network

Smoothies, of course.


I am going to try making this:   Pepper -Rubbed Salmon with Melon Salsa

Tuna Salad, any variation

I also love any kind of fajita veggies wrapped in a lettuce leaf

I also want to try these: Poppy Seed Chicken Pitas


I have lately been making pork chops from our local farmer with cumin and other spices;  mango chicken; roasted asparagus and a lot of salad.

Sweet stuff:

My oldest has quite the sweet tooth.   I am currently searching for some delicious organic lemon-lime type desserts to make for her.

Please share with me what delicious spring dishes you have been making (or fall dishes, for my Down Under friends!)

Blessings and love,

  1. My kitchenaid mixer came with a little cookbook. It has a lovely recipe for lemon bars in it and they are so easy to make! I think if you just did a google of kitchenaid lemon bars it should come up. There is a crust layer, a cream cheese layer and the lemon layer on top. I never liked lemon desserts until I had these! If you can’t find the recipe and want to try it let me know and I’ll type t out for you! 😉

  2. Last night we had a really good sandwich on pita bread–salad greens from the garden for the base, then “falafel-esqu’ chickpeas (sauteed with onions, garlic and falafely spices), then topped with some creamy salad dressing. MUCH easier than homemade falafel! Nice summery meal…
