Happy Monday! We survived a very hot and then very rainy weekend! There was some Harry Potter movie watching, a birthday party and a cub scout camp out over the past couple of days. This past week was also filled with good food! Here’s a look at what was on our menu this past week.
Saturday: We were up in Rhode Island for the Memorial Day Weekend. My parents grilled steak and ribs which we had with salad and roasted potatoes.
Sunday: We got home from Rhode Island and were not in the mood to cook dinner or go out. So we ordered sushi from a local place. They had a new platter special that we took advantage of and everyone was happy!
Monday: My husband grilled some sausage and we had sausage and pepper sandwiches with cole slaw and corn on the cob. Simple but tasty.
Tuesday: I made Classic Mu Shu Pork from Every Day with Rachael Ray. This was a tasty version of the Chinese take out version that I like. Instead of napa cabbage, which my grocery store didn’t have, I used bagged cole slaw mix. I sauteed some zucchini in garlic and olive oil and also made some rice.
Wednesday: I made Creamy Roasted Red Pepper and Spinach Goat Cheese Skillet Chicken from Closet Cooking. The roasted red peppers, spinach and goat cheese made a tasty flavor combination for the chicken. This dish was made in about a half hour. To accompany it, I made Spaghetti Aglio E Olio (spaghetti with garlic and olive oil).
Thursday: I made Mexicali Hashbrown Taco Casserole from The Midnight Baker. I precooked the meat mixture and defrosted the hash browns in the afternoon. We had a 5 PM piano lesson, so by the time we got home and cooked the casserole in the oven for 35 minutes, we weren’t eating until 6:45. So, not a quick meal, but this was super tasty. Everyone had seconds and there were no leftovers!
Friday: We had our usual homemade pizza.
