Weekly Menu for the Week of Apr 8

Oh my gosh, you guys! It’s April and it is truly beginning to feel like it is spring…and I am so here for it! Since I missed getting a menu up last week, I’m thinking back to Easter, when we all sat outside and read books on the deck! Here in Oregon, 59 degrees in the spring feels like 70. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t wearing a tank top! Anything to feel a little bit of sun on my very pale shoulders.

We detoured from the usual Easter dinner a bit – Josh made brisket taquitos instead (determined by family vote), and they were very good. A little spicy for me, but had a really good flavor. He smoked another brisket on Saturday (allllll day) for brisket nachos at the church potluck on Sunday and brisket quesadillas in the afternoon. Clearly we like brisket (and Mexican food themed brisket meals?) around here. Need to share some brisket (and leftover brisket!) recipes soon!

With the weather acting all spring-y, I’m ready to fill my menu with ALL kinds of warmer weather foods. I miss eating salads for a meal. I just don’t want an entree salad in December, ya know!

Here’s what’s on this week’s menu!

Is it too soon to share my Ice Cream Pinterest board with you? There are so many ways to enjoy an ice cream dessert. Milkshakes, ice cream cake, ice cream, obviously. I mean I think all of this sounds incredibly yummy! I love ice cream all year round, but I especially enjoy it when the weather is nice.

I hope you all have a great week, everyone!
