Menu of the Week #7


Our seventh menu of the week in 2018 was disrupted, but you can see in the above picture what I intended to make. What didn't get made this week will appear on next week's menu. This post will have the following recipes: Baked Chicken Parmesan Meatballs, 1770 House Meatloaf with Garlic Sauce, and Enchilada Soup.

Menu of the Week #4


This week was a mix of new recipes and some old standards for us. I discovered a new way to make Brussels and cauliflower that I think you will enjoy too. We have to keep our veggie game up to trick family into eating enough, am I right?

Menu of the Week #3


My family enjoyed our menu of the week which features a meatless dish, as well as chicken, pork, beef, fish, I think we've covered all the proteins.

Shakshuka


Shakshuka? This is an absolutely delicious meal of eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes, peppers, and onions, with spices like cumin and paprika. On Sunday I had a hankering for this warming and comforting meal which originated in Northern Africa and appears on menus across the US as a brunch item. If you are looking for something that comes together quickly, under 30 minutes, you should try this. Shakshuka can be eaten for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner, it truly is that amenable of a meal.
