Breakfast Sausage Egg Squares


Day 39 – As states are talking about ending shelter-in-place rules do you have a line when you know it will be safe for your family to go out? We are talking as a family that even if our state ends shelter-in-place in a week we will not. I am not comfortable yet sending out my family to eat in a restaurant, shop in stores together, or go to movie theaters or other crowded places. We have talked about what we need to see in order to feel comfortable. Ours is a significant decrease in our state and county in the number of Covid-19 cases, a rise in the number of tests being performed in the area, right now we are at less than 1% testing, AND personal protection equipment for us. I have a susceptibility to this and know that if I get it I may not survive. We are doing everything we can to keep ourselves safe.

We are still eating 95% out of our pantry and refrigerator. We make one night a week Breakfast for Dinner. Those are one of my favorite nights. Dinner is usually so easy to make and doesn’t require much preparation. I have had a couple cans of the crescent roll dough in the refrigerator for nights such as this. Perfect.

Verdict: Everyone kept saying how good this dish was. They were all surprised at how simple it was to make too. The most difficult part was shredding the cheese. This is also good with onions and peppers fried in a bit of butter added. Mushrooms would work too. Make it your own and add what your family would like or change the cheese! Swiss and ham? Gouda and spinach? Yummy!

    Sure makes me hungry. But then, I am always hungry! At our daily press briefing a couple hours ago our Gov. Raimondo (R) said definite shelter in place still until May 8. Slight possibility we might be starting to plateau in our new cases, but show her the data. Told everyone over 60 there will be definite different rules more restrictive for us so we had better start thinking longer term and utilizing help if we need it. I went out to grocery store early this morning for the first time in 16 days. It was exciting, but I began to notice food shortages in a lot of areas whereas before it was mostly paper and cleaning goods. Almost all our cases here are nursing homes, and others are 45% Latino, 22% African/Americans who work in lower paying service jobs. I feel grateful and privileged by birth and good health, but will not add to the problem by going out sooner than safe.

      So true about feeling grateful and privileged to be able to go out but we also tend to air on the side of caution. Our legislature has said they will not extend the governor’s orders so we shall see what happens and if she will use Executive Privilege. It will be interesting!

  5. What do you mean “eating out 95% pantry and refrigerator”? By that, do you mean ordering out? I haven’t ordered out since before this thing began. Cases are still going up in my state and Washington, D.C. and since I work there, I have to look at both where I live at as well as where I work. So I have no problem continuing to work from home.

      We eat mostly all our meals made of foods from our pantry and refrigerator. We VERY rarely order out and I always feel guilty when I do. Our state as a whole is on the downturn BUT our area is just starting to move upward. So more and more businesses are closing. We are able to work from home now but my wife is on furlough for two weeks. We are hoping it is only for two weeks. Hope you stay well!
