Happy Wednesday everyone!
There is a crisp feeling in the air these days and just the other night, I did it: I turned on the heat in the house.
With the change in season comes some meals on our bi-weekly menu that we don’t make really any other time of the year. We all get excited when we see the reappearance of those menu items.
Without further ado, here is our list for the current two weeks of meals. I hope that you’ll find something on this list that inspires you too!
TWO WEEKS OF MEALS
Monday: Whole chicken (this was a carryover from last time, we never got to have it during that two week cycle.)
Tuesday: National Taco Day, so……tacos
Wednesday: Pasta de Peche (this is an old Italian egg drop soup kind of pasta recipe. It reminds me of my childhood but it’s actually a recipe my daughter brought home from her friend’s house and it is her grandmother’s recipe. It is so simple, so here it is as we make it for a family of four, and then we make smaller version for one gluten free:
PASTENA OR PECE de PEPE:
16 oz. box of pasta, 4 scrambled eggs, 4 cubes of chicken bouillon, drizzle of olive oil
Boil the pasta as usual. When it is done, drain the water but do not take the pasta out of the pan. Leave a small amount of water in the bottom. Shut the heat off and add in beaten egg with a little olive oil. Stir into pasta. Add in (Herbox) bouillon. Stir until egg has cooked. Add a butter, salt and pepper to taste. (For the gluten free version the box of pasta is 8.8 oz, so we use 2 eggs and 2 bouillon cubes.)
Friday: out to dinner
Saturday: DIY tortilla pizzas (corn tortillas for gluten free)
Sunday: Pork Chops
Monday: Cranberry Chicken
Wednesday: Pasta with zucchini rounds parmesan (This is a new recipe, I will let you know how it goes!)
Thursday: Chicken wings and legs
Friday: Hamburgers, chicken burgers and hot dogs
