Weekly Eats: A Break from Social Distancing
A Break from Social Distancing
My father-in-law passed away this week. When my husband told me that things weren't looking good, I thought how sad that he wouldn't be able to be with him in person again. But it turns out that when someone is dying there is no reason to protect them from COVID-19, so his assisted living facility let the family come in to be with him on his final day. After taking our temperatures and doing a basic health screen, they let us come in and set aside a room for us and we took turns going to see him. There was no social distancing that day.
This week saw the return of the avocado, sausage, and cheddar scramble along with the usual breakfast suspects.
Pinch of Yum's Spicy Sofritas but with tempeh instead of tofu and stir fried some peppers. Combined all of the above with some refried beans into a batch of freezer burritos (or tacos, whatever you call a bunch of yummy stuff wrapped up in a tortilla).
I also had the tempeh with rice and sweet potatoes (big batch that I have on hand in the freezer).
Monday: leftover meatloaf and twice baked potatoes.
Tuesday: Costco orange chicken and egg rolls. I had to work late, so the menfolk made dinner for me.
Wednesday: Chicken parm. A quick dinner after a draining day.
Thursday: rando night. The kids finished the orange chicken, hubs finished the meatloaf, and I had salmon.
Friday: Mandatory takeout night, burgers
Saturday: just because we'd had burgers the night before doesn't mean that we didn't have them again.
Sunday: oh yeah! A Foodie Stays Fit White BBQ Chicken.
Not a lot. Galaxy Quest for family viewing,
Still working on and enjoying The Third Wife by Lisa Jewell. And I "read" the audible version of Unorthodox. It is nothing like the TV show: the show was excellent and the book was excellent and they were very different from each other. I highly recommend both and yay she wrote a sequel so that's on my list.
