May Menu & A Gooseberry Patch Winner

Happy Friday Everyone!!!! With Easter, Teacher Appreciation, Mothers Day and my Gooseberry Patch Giveaway, I kind of got distracted on the task at hand. My May Dinner Menu!!! I have been working on it, but really slacking on getting it posted. Every time I would start to type it up another post would take priority. But no worries today I am finally getting around to posting my menu.

Summer is right around the corner and I can feel it in the air. With summer comes the hot temps, so I have added quite a few meals to try and beat the heat. May is usually the month that we really get serious about firing up the grill again. I think that's my favorite part about summer, grilling out. The more we cook outside the less I have to turn on the oven. I have also added a few crock pot meals for the same reason.

I haven't figured out our plans for Mothers Day quite yet. I'm not sure If I want to eat out or stay home and throw something on the grill. Cracker Barrel was what I wanted to do, but today I woke with a stomach bug. So really nothing is sounding to appealing right now. I will just play it by ear and see. I do know that no matter what I am making a strawberry pie for dessert so I do have a bit of a plan. What are your plans for Mothers Day?

Thanks so much for posting your menu. I like to get some new ideas for my own. I never really made Salisbury steak until I made yours, now we have it all the time :)

Thanks for all these lovely ideas! I made the strawberry pie and it was delicious. Still had plenty of strawberries, so I also made a triple strawberry cheesecake that I posted for mother's day. With all the fresh berries, there's never too many strawberry recipes to try. Thanks for all your lovely posts - along with others, you have inspired me to post my own family's recipes.
