Well. These menu posts are going to feel a little easier for me now that you all know what’s going on in my life.
As you may imagine, I am not doing a whole lot of cooking or grocery shopping these days; I do trade off some cooking duties with my parents, and I do some grocery shopping, but it’s not like it was when I was at my own house.
I feel slightly silly even still doing these posts, but hopefully soon I will be able to find somewhere to rent, and then I will settle into a new normal of cooking and shopping.
And in the meantime, you can get a peek into eating at my parents’ house. 😉
What I Spent
I spent $15 at Trader Joe’s, $7 at Mezeh, and $20 at Chick-Fil-A.
What We Ate
I made pizza, but unfortunately, I did not have my King Arthur bread flour. So, the resulting pizza was all right, but not quite up to my standards.
I got some bread flour this week, though, so we will have a follow-up pizza night soon. 😉
My parents and Sonia and Zoe and I drove up to visit Lisey for her birthday.
My aunt made a dish called fleishkuechle. (it’s was a popular dish among the Mennonite people in South Dakota, which is where my dad’s side of the family is from.)
I’d never had this meal before, and I’d say these little meat pies are a bit similar to an empanada; basically a deep-fried meat pie.
My mom cooked; we had quesadilla burgers, roasted cauliflower, and some fruit.
I got a bowl at Mezeh and studied while the girls were at their class. Afterward, I took them to Chick-Fil-A.
My mom finally got to make Brussels sprouts tacos for me (our previous plans to do this had gotten derailed).
Basically, you shred Brussels sprouts, saute them with taco seasoning, and eat them in tortillas with pickled onions, chimichurri sauce, and corn.
My verdict? These are much tastier than I imagined they would be, particularly because of the chimichurri sauce. It doesn’t really taste like you are eating Brussels sprouts.
Leftovers, plus a green salad.
I have not consulted with my mom yet to see what we are doing for dinner tonight! So…I don’t know. 😉
What did you have for dinner this week?
P.S. Just so you know, I have read every single one of the kind comments you all have left for me, both on my blog and on my social media accounts. I can’t respond to them all, but please know that I have read and appreciate every single one. <3
