I hope you are all safe and doing well and filling your self-quarantining days with loving your family and being productive. Finally, most of the items I need are back in my local grocer’s. I hope that is the same for you. Here’s what’s on the spring menu this week…
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!
Bobby and I had a huge ham all to ourselves 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
Mt Tex-Mex meal this week are 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!
I’ll never take chicken for granted again! I’m so so thankful for a package of chicken thighs!!! And I bet you are glad to see chicken in your grocery bags too! Sometimes we need to be reminded that what we take for granted is really a huge blessing!
So I’ll be making a recipe passed down from generation to generation in my family. It’s so easy and so so good! I’ll be thanking God a little more fervently for tonight’s meal!
Today’s recipes is an oldie but OH, it is so so delicious! It starts off with this amazing homemade rub that I put on all kinds of meats, then the ribs as slow baked in the oven! They are great to eat right out of the oven but we like to grill them for just a few minutes to give them a gorgeous char!
These will become a favorite summer recipe! I hope you give them a try!
And serve them with the best potato salad you will every eat! And that is no hyperbole!
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!
I can’t wait to make this week’s sweet treat from Jaclyn at Cooking Classy, wow do they look like the real thing! Finger’s crossed!
ONE MORE TREAT
But this one is savory! It’s asparagus time and rolling fresh asparagus in phyllo dough is just heavenly! So while we can get local fresh asparagus I’ll be making a few batches of this delicious recipe for lunches!
