Meal plan for March 26th – April 1st
You should see my fridge right now. I’m pretty sure I have over 100 eggs in there. The milkman deliver my normal order (3 dozen) even though I cancelled it. I didn’t realize this until AFTER I went to the farm where I get our milk and also picked up eggs. Given all the eggs, you’d think I would be having eggs every since night for dinner this week? Not necessarily so!
We do however have a frittata on the menu. That damn frittata shows up every week and never gets made. Why? Because I keep putting it on a Friday. Come Friday, I never want to actually cook, so Jack and I make popcorn, and have popcorn and fruit on the couch and watch a library DVD. Going forward I’m just scheduling popcorn for Fridays!
Here is what we’ll be eating this week:
Monday:: BBQ chicken pizza on homemade whole wheat pizza dough, salad, and fruit
Tuesday:: Weeknight chicken parm, salad, and fruit
Wednesday:: Pasta faguoli (I never know how to spell that) in the crockpot, paninis, and salad
Thursday:: Frittata and fruit
Friday:: Popcorn and fruit
Saturday: Matzo ball soup, dutch oven bread, salad, and fruit
This week I spent $41 on groceries (holy hell matzo meal is expensive!!!!) and $18 on raw milk and eggs. $4 of that was for eggs for my aunt and uncle. I accidentally also spent $12.98 on eggs delivered from the milkman. Whoopsie.
Someone Troy works with did a huge favor for us. As a “thank you”, Troy told him that I’d make him his favorite dessert. The guy said he likes pie and vanilla wafers and Nutella. Not a lot to go on there! I put the vanilla wafers (pictured above) in a food processor to crumb them, and slowly added melted butter until it became a dough. I pressed that in to a pie crust, and filled it with this recipe.
Perhaps one of the unhealthiest things I’ve ever made. But, when you give me a list of random things you like, I have to get creative! Did you notice the EIGHT egg yolks that recipe called for? Good god! I couldn’t let those egg whites go to waste, so I made these last night with the leftovers.
