Friday Food Round-Up!

This week, I was not the most inspired to meal plan.  This is also possibly because I was hosting a baby shower with Becky last Sunday.  I took no photos of that, but if you want some great egg bakes, this Prosciutto, Spinach and Feta Strata is just the best.

Saturday – Chicken Salad

We had some chicken breasts in the fridge that we needed to cook and also we needed to eat lunch.

Saturday – Steak, Roasted Broccoli, Hashbrowns

At-home date night.  Also known as I wanted to cook something super-easy and for some reason hashbrowns sounded REALLY good.  I don’t know why we haven’t served these as a side before.

Sunday – Butcher and the Boar Sausages, Cole Slaw, Hashbrowns

Then, in a twist, after hearing about our hashbrowns for dinner on Saturday, Dad wanted hashbrowns for his dinner instead of tots so we made the rest of them to go with our sausages – a very traditional pairing, as I am sure you are familiar.

Monday – One Skillet Steak and Spring Veg with Spicy Mustard, Potato Salad

This was basically a total repeat dinner.  It was even easier the second time.

Tuesday – BBQ Chicken, Oven Roasted Potatoes, Three Bean Salad

Honestly, this was not my most inspired meal.  But the chicken turned out MUCH moister than I was expecting (chicken breasts just don’t fare well without advance marination).  Shout-out to Dad for that.  And we got to have three bean salad for the first time in a long while.

Wednesday – Asparagus and Chicken Salad with Buttermilk Dressing

I tore this out of the Food Network Magazine a while ago.  For some reason I felt like we could survive eating salad for dinner this week.

Miscellaneous – Marinated Mixed Beans

I just made these so that I’d have them on hand as an extra lunch food.  This has probably been our biggest issue with food in the multi-generational compound – having enough for leftovers the next day, simply because four adults are eating.  Plus I haven’t made a bean salad for lunch in a long time.

  1. Real excited to eat food that looks like what you photographed. The mixed bean salad and the buttermilk asparagus chicken look especially delectable.
