Weekly Menu Plan – May 17, 2020

Saturday I did my every two weeks grocery shopping. I had my list, but was delighted to also find cherries at Costco! We made this cherry pie that afternoon (I didn’t make my own crust), and it was DELICIOUS!! I love summer fruits and vegetables and cherries are always the first sign that the season is starting!

I always start menu planning by doing a quick freezer and pantry inventory and then asking my family what they’d like to eat. They have pretty standard answers, but I made a list of them to get started. I was feeling very stuck when it came time to rounding out the list, so I grabbed a cookbook off my shelf that I knew I hadn’t used in a while. The book I picked was Dinner: A Love Story by Jenny Rosenstrach and you’ll see a few of her recipes on this week’s list (I’ve marked them with the appropriate page numbers).

Here’s what we’re eating this week:
Saturday: Ham and Roast vegetables with Polenta (pg. 60-61)
Sunday: Chicken kabobs and corn on the cob, roasted potatoes
Monday: Salad bar
Tuesday: Steak fajitas
Wednesday: Pork tenderloin & pierogies
Thursday: Greek-style shrimp with feta (pg. 70) and risotto
Friday: Chicken, asparagus & potatoes (this is one of the recipes included in my meal planner)
Saturday: Pork dumplings (pg. 141-142) & fried rice

I did make my sourdough starter but then life intervened and I didn’t touch it for a few days. Still feeding it and I’ll report back when we get to bread!
