The sun is shining. The birds are chirping. The days are getting longer.
Spring is in full bloom, my friends, and that means you have more reasons than ever to stay outside just a little longer. And hey, if you can grill something delicious that has your neighbors sniffing the air like bunnies? Well, that’s just a bonus.
When it comes to meal planning, grilling is a fast and fun way to change up your weeknight menu. In fact, my family is loving the May/June recipes from the Easy Grillin’ 10 Meals & More Collection, since it has a lot of fresh twists on some of our favorite foods like grilled chicken and pizza. And you’ll even find the best of both worlds with today’s recipe featured below!
Smoky and a little sassy, these grilled BBQ pizzas are quick and delicious – loaded with chunks of chicken, crispy bacon and melted mozzarella cheese.
Real-Life Cooking with Collections
Now you might already know that you can get a collection delivered to your doorstep automatically every month with TS to You – complete with beautiful recipe cards, a handy grocery list and tips for leftovers. But how do you make collections part of your regular routine?
Since making 10 new meals in a row would result in a revolt in our house from the tiny tyrants (ages 3 and 6), we’re trying two recipes each week. It’s been a fun way to liven up our regular rotation without rocking the boat too much. In fact, this is what our menu actually looks like this week:
On the Fridge: This Week’s Menu
Tuesday: Zesty Honey BBQ Chicken with roasted asparagus
Wednesday: BLTs with sweet potato fries
Thursday: Grilled BBQ Chicken Pizza
Friday: Leftovers (woohoo!)
Saturday: Grilled cheddar brats, chips and fresh fruit
Sunday: Pork chops, salad and baby red potatoes
Oh, and don’t forget that every meal collection includes a bonus dessert!
Bonus Dessert: Mini Lemon Raspberry Trifles
This week I made Sunny Lemon Pound Cake & Icing Mix, which came with my grilling collection. It looks fancy, but don’t be fooled. All I did was layer cubes of the cake with instant coconut pudding, whipped topping and fresh raspberries. (You can create one big trifle in a large glass bowl, or make mini trifles in clear glasses like these.) Yum!
