The Weekend Dish: 3/14/2020

Hello, hello everyone!

It looks like most of us are going to be hunkering down and spending tons of time at home for at least the next couple of weeks. The grocery situation appears to be absolutely insane (I did the last of mine on Wednesday morning before things really got turned upside down); did you get everything you need? I’m hoping things calm down over the weekend, stores get restocked, and I’ll be able to get some fresh produce at the beginning of the week.

I have recipes ready to share with you over the next few weeks, but if you’re looking for anything specific based on what you have on hand, please leave a comment below and I’ll give you links to some recommendations!

This Time Last Year…

These were the recipes that hit the site during this same week last year…

Homemade Potato and Cheese Pierogi

Easy Bolognese Sauce

Sunday Dinner Menu

We canceled Sunday dinner this week to ensure no germs are passed around; doing our best at social distancing for everyone’s sake!

However, I’ll likely make a batch of meat sauce and pasta because the boys get seriously disappointed when we don’t have “sauce pasta” on Sundays 😉
