Weekly Menu Plan – May 3, 2020

First, how is it May already?

It was time for us to menu plan again at the end of last week because I made one of my every-two-weeks trips to Costco on Friday. I cannot tell you how much I love shopping at Costco these days – they truly have and have had the best social distancing and safety practices from the start. I not only shop for groceries while I’m there but also say thank you to every single employee that I see.

I ended up not making a couple of things from last week’s menu – the shrimp & broccoli and beef with broccoli – and I don’t really have a good reason why. On Wednesday I was just not feeling like cooking so Abe took over, but his comfort level is at grilling steaks and roasting broccoli in the oven. It was delicious and I was so thankful for the break that night. Also important to note was that the garlic butter chicken I made was a HUGE hit (it was a new recipe for us), so that will definitely make it back on our menu.

Here’s what we’re eating this week:

Sunday – pork tenderloin & pierogies
Monday – spaghetti & meatballs
Tuesday – chicken tacos (with all the fixings and margaritas – happy Cinco de Mayo!)
Wednesday – meatball sandwiches (I’ll make double the meatballs on Monday and just reheat for tonight)
Thursday – homemade chicken nuggets (the kids call them ‘mommy nuggets’) and mac & cheese (from a box – regular for the kids & Abe, vegan/no dairy for me)
Friday – pancakes & sausage
Saturday – make your own pizza (with homemade dough)

The other thing that was requested for this week was quiche for breakfast. When the kids were little I called it Eggie Pie to make it sound more interesting and that’s still what we call it. I use a recipe that a friend gave me years ago and it’s so easy.

Ingredients:
Premade pie shell, uncooked
4 eggs
1 small container Greek plain yogurt
Cheddar and Parmesan cheese ( I used a small sprinkling for flavor)
Salt and pepper

Directions:
• Line pie plate with pie shell.
• Beat eggs in a bowl, add yogurt and whip with a whisk until it’s light yellow.
• Add cheese and salt and pepper (you can also add chopped veggies, bacon, sausage, ham, etc).
• Pour into pie shell and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes until set.
