This week we’ll be enjoying lots of skillet dishes this week. It was hot over the weekend and I’m sure more hot weather will be coming. I keep planning skillet dishes to be prepared when the hot days of the summer hit.

My kids requested southern fried tofu. Yes, they do like tofu. I attribute that to feeding it to them early in life. We try to eat a meatless meal occasionally and this dish was their pick for this week.

We used to eat meatless meals two to four times a month but for some reason, I’ve fallen out of that habit. I need to make a point to include more meatless meals in our meal plans more often.

I purchased London broil recently. We’ll be using some this week in our beef and celery. I stir fry beef, celery, and mushrooms and serve it over noodles. It’s too good.

I’ve also included a new dish we are going to try. We made our pizza pockets in the waffle iron and they turned out so well, we’ve decided to try making the beef cups everyone likes in the waffle iron too. If they turn out good, you’ll be seeing them added to the blog.

If they turn out good, you’ll be seeing them added to the blog.

I don’t think you can ever have too many breakfast recipes. This chocolate chip scone recipe is one of our favorites. These chocolate chip sones have no heavy cream, in fact they are dairy free scones. Another plus is you can make them in the skillet, so you don’t have to heat up the house on warmer days to bake them.

Toast with Eggs

Chocolate Chip Scones made in the Skillet, Eggs, and Sausage

  1. We used to eat more meatless meals, too. In fact, we did a whole year of eating vegetarian. I’d like to get back to eating less meat. I’ll have to check out your recipes.

    Have a beautiful week!

  2. It’s been hotter here in IL, too. Humid, really! We find that it’s easy to incorporate meatless meals into our diet when we eat pasta more often. 🙂

    I hope you and your family are doing well, Shelly, and that you all have a great week!

  3. We’re having pork chops this week too…I’m making them on the grill, seasoned with just salt and pepper. We really love them this way, and they are so simple to do.

    I hope you have a great week….and can stay cool! 🙂
