What is new on your Spring Meal Menu?

I received my FREE Kraft Food & Family Magazine Spring issue in the mail earlier this week.

It's packed full of recipes to get you to thinking about your spring and summer menu planning.

There is the Bacon & Spinach Salad that's already made it to my dinner table. Next coming up is the Saucy Pepper Steak entree and for dessert we will be having the Easy Peanut Butter & Chocolate Eclair.

If you havnt signed up and received your copy, you can read the entire issue online here: Kraft Food & Family Spring 2008

How do you change your menus from winter to summer? Do you have a Quick & Easy summer dinner to share? Post them in the comments.



  1. Truthfully, my menus don't really change too much from winter to summer except that we eat more salads and quick sandwich meals. I tend to only cook all the week's meals for the first 1 or 2 days, so I don't have the oven or stove going every day. I also make a lot of ice pops and frozen type drinks. Yum!

  2. sorry, that last post was from me :o). DH forgot to sign out of his account.

  3. Our change is not really a conscious one. We just tend to have a craving for more veggies and salads as the weather gets warmer. But we still have some pretty hearty meals during the summer.

    The Kraft magazine? My mother-in-law gives me hers after she's done with it. :)

  4. Also, I agree with amiyrah about cooking several meals a day at the beginning of the week. I try to cook that way all year 'round. Saves on utilities and frees up time later in the week.

  5. YOU JUST GOT THIS????? I got mine over a month ago!!!

    Winter meals are more.. shepards pie, homemade mac and cheese, "shake and bake" chicken, oven roasters, beef stew in the crockpot, pot roasts

    In the summer we tend to do steaks on the grill, and the left over steak goes in sandwich wraps for the next nights dinner with veggies, cheese and salad dressings..
    Hamburgers, hot dogs, tacos.. things seem to be quicker in the summer...
