Spring is really popping here! Spring in Lancaster County is beautiful. And our farmer’s market is reflecting the same spring vibe. This week’s menu reflects some of the delicious homegrown produce we are getting at our favorite farmer’s market. Here’s what’s on the menu…
Oh Wow!!! I can’t wait for Bobby, or resident grillmaster, to make this gorgeous flat iron steak from Man Beyond The Cave! I’ll do the marinade and he takes dinner from there!
Leftovers will become yummy quesadillas later this week!
We will have a big ham on Easter day! Now we have lots of leftovers. I’m freezing most of the ham and keeping a bit out for this beautiful casserole from Daniela at My Gorgeous Recipes!
WEDNESDAY- SOUP DAY
It’s asparagus season in Lancaster County! We no longer have an asparagus patch in our back yard but there are plenty of farm markets filled with homegrown asparagus here!
I can’t wait to make this easy, creamy asparagus soup from Holly at Spend With Pennies! Holly has a beautiful and delicious foodie blog! Make sure to stop by and check out her yummy recipes!
- CREAMY ASPARAGUS SOUP
- HOMEMADE SOURDOUGH BREAD
My Tex-Mex meal this week is delicious steak quesadillas! Oh, yum! I’m using the leftovers from Monday’s dinner so this meal will be extra easy!
Bobby is not much of a leftover guy so I hide leftovers in really amazing dishes, like tonight’s main dish from Aberdeen’s Kitchen!
- 30 MINUTE STEAK QUESADILLAS
- FAT-FREE REFRIED BEANS
I LOVE my air fryer! Air fried food is so crunchy and it stays juicy and it’s not greasy!
Air Fried Cod is just so good! And with homemade tartar sauce, it’s amazing!!!! A big thank you to Trevor and Jennifer at Show Me The Yummy!
Tonight I’ll be making a recipe passed down from generation to generation in my family. It’s so easy and so so good! I thank God for the heritage of good food and faith and family passed down to me.
I LOVE pesto! And anything made with pesto. Tonight’s tortellini salad is the star of our dinner… well it shares the culinary stage with the chicken.
We can get really delicious cherry and grape tomatoes in our area so I’m using them in an easy and pretty dinner salad. My cooking philosophy is to cook with ingredients that are fresh, in season and/or taste great. When I can’t get good tomatoes I don’t cook with them. If your ingredients are just so-so your dish will be too.
Bobby will grill some succulent chicken thighs to go with the tortellini salad. Thighs are my hands-down favorite for grilling. They stay tender, moist, and delicious. And when we grill we like bone-in meats.
This meal sounds so good and easy. It just may be my go-to dinner for the warm weather season.
SWEET TREAT OF THE WEEK…
Two foodie things I remember from my school days are the incredible cheese enchiladas from my year in Del Rio (Texas) Middle School and CASH’s (high school in Pa.) peanut butter bars!
Those were the days I was as skinny as a stick and could eat my weight in almost anything!!! Yes, those were the days!
All these years I’ve strived to find cheese enchiladas and peanut butter bars as good as the ones those precious cafeteria ladies made!
