A Memorial Day Shavuot Menu

Butterflied Herb and Lemon Grilled Chicken

This year Memorial day is the second day of Shavuot.  I remember the last time they overlapped I took advantage and went to the beach, but this year I am staying put and hoping someone will invite me to a Shavuot Memorial Day BBQ.  I am all about the dairy, as you can see in last week's dairy Shavuot menu, but we have 4 meals, not including Shabbat and I like outdoor cooking, so here it is, my meat BBQ menu that works for Memorial Day and Shavuot.

Since there is so much eating going on I am still going to keep it light with a focus on chicken.

Butterflied Herb and Lemon Grilled Chicken

Learn to butterfly your chicken otherwise known as Spatchcock, cover it with herbs and lemon and cook right on your grill. This Butterflied Herb and Lemon Grilled Chicken is succulent and works really well with a side of rice or other grain, but for this menu I wanted to try something different and easy to make ahead.

grilled vegetable linguini

This Grilled Vegetable Linguine can be made ahead and served room temperature and won't spoil when sitting outside. Take advantage of the grill to cook these vegetables for extra flavor.

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

Try some Grilled Portobellos to serve alongside your chicken for some extra meaty taste without all the extra meaty calories.


Serve some Kale Salad dressed with Avocado and make some Roasted Chickpeas for snacking and all you have left is a dessert to help you cool off.

90 calorie fudge pop

I can't wait to start enjoying these 90 Calorie Fudge Pops again and today is the day to debut them!!  I guarantee everyone will love them.
