Weekly Menu Plan – May 11, 2020

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day! Mine was the best I’ve had in a long time. My husband worked really hard with the kids to make it special this year. They greeted me with a finisher’s chute and snack table at the end of my run, got me sushi from my favorite place, and made me a delicious steak dinner.

Ok, on to this week’s menu:

Monday – Greek chicken
Tuesday – Beef tacos
Wednesday – Lasagne
Thursday – Waffles & bacon
Friday – Hot Dogs & Hamburgers
Saturday – Take out

I’ve been making my own taco seasoning for years. This recipe makes enough to last a few months, so I just keep it in a container in my spice cabinet. I’ve had this recipe for so long I can’t even credit the source since I don’t remember where it came from.

1/4 cup chili powder
1 1/2 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

To use: Substitute 2 rounded tablespoons for 1 packet of taco seasoning.

Another project for this week is making a sourdough starter. While we all love sourdough bread, I’ve been avoiding this one because I’ve seen others have marginal success with it on social media. But my SIL (who is an amazing baker) suggested that I try the King Arthur Flour recipe and method, so I’ll give it a go!
