Menu Ideas

Menu ideas for this month:

1) Grilled Teriyaki Chicken
Basmati pineapple rice
Sauteed asparagus with lemon
Trader Joe's Pot Stickers

2) Grilled BBQ Chicken (dry rub marinated then brushed with Sweet Famous Dave's sauce)
Grilled corn on the cob
Spinach salad with feta, strawberries, brioche croutons and poppy seed dressing (Or the spinach salad mix from Trader Joe's, add the strawberries)
Sweet potato oven fries (Frozen section, Trader Joe's)
Tiny cream cheese biscuits

That's it for this week, the biscuit recipe is awesome, one of my husband's favorite things. Super easy too:

Cream Cheese Biscuits
1 stick of butter, softened
1 8 oz. block of cream cheese, softened
1 cup self-rising flour
4 TB. sugar

Beat the cream cheese and butter at medium speed with a mixer until creamy. Gradually add flour and sugar at low speed until just blended.
Spoon the dough into ungreased mini muffin pans, filling them almost full.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15-17 minutes or until golden.
Serve hot with plenty of your favorite jams on the side.
Yields about 1 1/2 dozen
