Food blogs offer up tons of delicious recipes every day, but what do you do with them when dinner time rolls around? Monday Menu answers that question by putting those recipes together to create complete meal ideas for you! Life just got a whole lot easier.
Let’s face it. Coming up with new meal ideas every week isn’t easy… for anybody! We get stuck in a rut making the same ol’ things or just end up ordering take out because planning out meals in advance requires time we may not have.
I get it! That’s why every week, I love combing through the best recipes here at Southern Discourse for you and putting them together to create delicious, easy meal ideas your family will love.
No more being stumped on what side dish to make or what goes with this or that. Monday Menu takes care of all of that for you!
This Menu’s Secret
Like other Monday Menus, the meal ideas below are efficient because the ingredients pull double duty. Buy shrimp for your gumbo and the Million Dollar Dip for this week’s snack. Use the rice for a side dish and to make rice pudding.
Double duty ingredients keep you from running all over the store when buying groceries and makes sure ingredients aren’t wasted. We’re streamlining time, money and decision making for the win and still turning out awesome meals like a pro!
Dessert This Week
Make the most of buying rice this week by making rice pudding! Rich and creamy, Old Fashioned Rice Pudding is the perfect dessert, snack or even breakfast when your family is craving warm and cozy comfort food. Quick and easy with options for add-ins to make it just the way your family likes it, this classic recipe is one that you’ll turn to again and again!
Here’s What We’re Snacking On
Hot, easy & melted cheesy! We’re making that seafood pull double duty this week with Million Dollar Shrimp & Crab Dip. It’s so good you’ll swear you hear waves hit the sand when you take that first warm bite of seafood goodness. This classic baked Louisiana dip is loaded with shrimp, crab, bell pepper, onion, bacon, 4 cheeses and all the right seasoning and spices!
Making Breakfast Easy
October means bring on the pumpkins! And this is the best pumpkin muffin recipe! Light and tender with warm spices, these soft muffins are full of real pumpkin with an easy streusel topping of brown sugar, pecans, cinnamon and pumpkin seeds for a genuine bakery/coffee shop experience at home!
