The Easy Dinner Menu Ideas week 12 brings a bit of the tropics to the dinner table. Some Hawaiian flavors in wings, a cocktail, and a breakfast shake that will whisk you away, virtually, to the tropics and a dessert so delicious you might not want to share.
Do you make Taco Tuesday a regular event in your house? If so, the grilled Hawaiian ham tacos are a nice change from a traditional taco. End the week with an at-home happy hour. A Mai Tai will make you think of being in Hawaii.
One of the bonus recipes this week is a tropical flavored breakfast shake. I thought about calling it a sunshine shake since it really tastes like a burst of sunshine. It’s a great way to wake up and start the day.
Two delicious summertime desserts that would be perfect for Memorial Day or any summer gathering are also included. They are very different but both so summery.
Remember, check out the previous weeks of my easy dinner menu ideas. Each week you’ll get more ideas to mix and match creating more and more options for not only your family but for entertaining friends.
My Easy French Dip is one of our favorite quick meals. I recently updated the recipe with new pictures. You’re going to want to check this one out. I’m hearing from readers that they love French dip but never make it because it seems so difficult. Not this recipe! It’s perfect for those late nights.
Chicken and waffles is probably the most labor-intensive dish on this week’s menu plan It’s really so good though. Plan it for a night when you have help and time.
Then there are wings. What can you say about wings? They are a great appetizer, game day grub, or an easy dinner. I especially love baked wings because I don’t have to hover over them like when they are on the grill.
