Our Menu plan this week is meaty with grilled pork chops, baked chicken and even a flat iron steak!
Crockpot Smothered Flat Iron Steak and some California vegetables.
I use ground turkey for the meat and we make this week’s Taco Tuesday night easy with a kit from our favorite brand.
Breakfast for supper! We tend to do this more in the fall and winter but we’ve been in the mood for it lately so, it made the menu this week. We’re going all out by serving Grits, eggs, sausage and biscuits.
Baked Chicken Leg Quarters and Succotash served on a bed or rice.
I season my leg quarters with salt, pepper, sage and paprika. Then I place them in a foil lined pan and bake covered at 350° for about 25 minutes , remove the foil and continue to bake until done. Total cook time is about 35- 45 minutes.
When I used to manage a southern cooking restaurant, I learned a lot of kitchen tricks from the cooks. One of those tricks to baking leg quarters was to place a few tiny little bitty pats of butter around the chicken prior to baking. It makes the skin more crispy. Of course, that’s an optional step! You can remove the skin prior to eating but leave it on during the bake time so the chicken won’t be dry.
We’re ordering pizza and planning a date night at home! No cooking!
BLT’s are a summer staple at our house. We never get tired of them. Saturday’s are a good day for sandwiches!
Our Meaty menu this week includes some especially yummy grilled pork chops smothered with a coffee rub, flat iron steak smothered in the crockpot, ground turkey for Taco Tuesday, Sausage on breakfast night, baked chicken, Bacon for BLT’s and of course there will quite like be some pepperoni on pizza night!
