Menu Plan Monday, 4/11 – 4/17

Although I am not changing my house over for Passover this year (the last time I did it was in 2009), I still like the idea of spring cleaning my pantry. So this week I’m going to make a dent in some of the various grains and legumes I have kicking around the kitchen, and then I’m going to take a week off from official menu planning while the kids are on Spring Break the following week.

I’m testing out the Honey Spiced Chicken Thighs on the grill tomorrow, because I am bringing them as one of the main dishes to the first Passover seder, and I want to see whether I prefer preparing them outdoors or in the oven. In addition to the chicken, I’m bringing Crispy Smashed Roasted Potatoes and an Apple & Almond Torte for dessert.

Monday: Honey Spiced Chicken Thighs (trying this on the grill), grilled asparagus, Israeli couscous

Tuesday: Pinto Beans & Brown Rice, leftover grilled asparagus

Wednesday: Slow Cooker Vegetable Barley Soup (from the freezer), toasted bagels, fresh mozzarella

Thursday:Pineapple Head” smoked chicken (from the freezer), Mushroom Wheat Berry Pilaf, steamed green beans, dinner rolls

Friday: Spaghetti & Baked Meatballs (from the freezer, I’ll reheat them in marinara sauce), salad

Saturday: Smoked turkey breast (from the freezer), garden salad, whole wheat rolls

Sunday: Out to dinner

  1. I did the honey chicken on the grill and it was amazing. I also tried it using breasts and it remained moist and delicious. I’m doing it for passover the first night. I’m using Kosher for passover apricot preserves instead of honey.

    Let me know how yours come out!

    1. It worked on the grill, but I liked it better under the broiler! Still, worth doing outside for the summer, when you don’t want to turn on your oven. I am also not as much of a grill pro as you (yet!) so I felt I had more control over the cooking in the oven. Since I’m making A LOT for Passover, it will be easier for me to do inside. Glad you liked it!
