Today’s easy weekly dinner menu features Bacon Egg and Cheese Burgers, Crab and Corn Chowder, Green Chicken Burrito Bowls, and lots more!
I forgot to tell you last weekend that we were babysitting the neighbors’ chickens. We live in San Francisco with postage stamp sized yards and houses that literally touch each other, yet lots of people around here have backyard chickens. I felt like a farmer when I had to go feed chickens every morning, but the pay off was free eggs! I won’t be building a chicken coop in our yard anytime soon, but fresh eggs were definitely a nice treat that inspired the first recipe in this week’s menu. Let’s get to it!
- Bacon Egg and Cheese Breakfast Burgers
- One-Pot Green Chicken Burrito Bowls
- Crab and Corn Chowder with Jalapeño and Bacon
- Healthy Chinese Chicken Salad
- 25-Minute Cheeseburger Macaroni
- Almost Too Easy Honey Mustard Salmon (served with steamed or roasted vegetables)
- French Bread Pizzas by The Food Charlatan (I didn’t have a chance to try this week’s guest recipe myself, but I am 100% sure these pizzas will be 100% awesome!)

I can get behind any salad that’s covered avocado slices!
We live in the country so we have chickens. I wish I could say I loved having them but I don’t.
For some reason, they’re not producing many eggs and they’re incredibly bossy and aggressive.

That is really cute. As a child my grandparents lived on a farm. They raised everything from beef, pork, and poultry. They grew their own vegetables. ( I was raised by my grandparents ). We grew corn ( field and sweet corn ) took part of it to the grist mill and had corn meal made out of it. Except for flour, sugar and a few other staples we were pretty self sufficient. I was going to tell you that if you think the chickens were aggressive you should be around turkeys. They are very aggressive . Sometimes you literally have to run from them. Especially the toms. Reading your article really brought back memories. As the goes ” Thanks for the memories “.
Thanks so much for sharing those memories with me, Margaret! When I was a kid, my extended family lived in the country and had a few random farm animal, but I’ve never been around a real working farm like that. You are lucky to have that experience! P.S. I’ll watch out for turkeys ;)
Thanks, Jennifer! I’m all about eating avocado as often as possible ;) I would not be thrilled with the chickens either if they weren’t even giving me eggs! They seem pretty messy, at least when they are kept in a little coop in a little yard. At least the neighbor’s are nice and not aggressive. I hope your chickens get with the program soon.
