With all of the food shortages, I’m leaning on make-ahead recipes (trying to deal with what’s available now and what may be available next week); double-batching recipes; and having breakfast for dinner. I shop every Thursday and the only items left in the chicken section were two whole chickens, a split-chicken breast, and a package of thighs. There was a two-item maximum, so I took the thighs and one of the whole chickens.
Sunday – French toast with maple syrup
Monday – honey nut Cheerios with milk and strawberries
Tuesday – pb&j on whole grain toast
Wednesday – sausage biscuit
Thursday – sausage, egg, and cheese croissant
Friday – BLT on whole grain toast
