Midweek Menu #125 marks a milestone. Over 124 weeks I’ve shared recipes, cooking tips, and a single weekly menu meant to encourage you to be a better home cook. I am thrilled that so many people have embraced this humble idea!
Some of my family’s best times have been spent at the supper table enjoying each other and good food. There’s something magical that happens when everyone is gathered together, sharing a meal, laughter, and stories about their day.
This week, this Midweek Menu #125 has 4 recipes that are great on their own but when they are served together, turn into an incredible meal.
Tips For Making This Menu
- Prep the Mexican Shredded Beef the night before and store it in the fridge. Place the slow cooker insert into the electric cooker and let it work its magic.
- I like to slice the veggies for the Tomato Cucumber Salad and make the dressing in advance. I store everything in the fridge and toss all the ingredients together right before serving.
- The Peach Tart can also be made ahead of time and served at room temperature or warmed up when you’re ready to enjoy it.
- If you are lucky enough to have leftovers, the beef and rice freeze beautifully!
Now, let’s get cooking…
Tomato Cucumber Salad is a refreshing dish that packs a punch of fresh flavor. It’s simple to make with a bright dressing full of herbs. This is one delightful salad that’s like a burst of summer on your plate!
This Slow Cooker Mexican Shredded Beef is fall-apart tender and loaded with deep, rich flavor. It’s terrific for tacos, enchiladas, and nachos or piled over rice and beans for burritos bowls. With so many yummy uses, you can let your imagination run wild!
Fluffy rice, seasoned perfectly then flavored with garlic and fresh herbs turn out beautifully every single time thanks to the Instant Pot! Garlic and Herb Rice is full of amazing flavor and is a terrific side dish that can be served any time of year.
Make this beautiful dessert from fresh or frozen peaches. This easy to make recipes uses puff pastry for an incredible crust that's so delicious.
