Meal Prep for the Week of 8.11.2019

True to form, I started a painting project yesterday and well, I’m in a little over my head. This one has been in the works for awhile and I’m starting to see that it will either be a glorious success or a spectacular failure. There is no in-between, I’m afraid. I’ll let you know either way. Here’s a sneak preview:

I haven’t had much time for cooking this weekend, so I have just a few pictures for you. I’ll update them going forward. Hope you don’t mind. Let’s dive into this week’s menu:

Breakfast:
Cinnamon Roll Noatmeal – This variation is so good! I added 3/4 tsp. of cinnamon and a smidgen of nutmeg (’cause it’s my favorite spice and I add it to nearly everything!) to the dry noatmeal mix from here…

…and made the cinnamon roll drizzle from here:

Lunch:
Chicken and Garlic with Fresh Herbs – We’ll have this with a side of fresh green beans from Pa Kettle’s garden. The chives, rosemary and thyme are all from our garden. We grilled the chicken and then finished it on the stove.

Dinner:

Keto Waffles – Breakfast for Dinner!

Cucumber and Strawberry Salad with Poppyseed Dressing – New Recipe! Because sometimes you just want a light, refreshing salad for dinner. I was skeptical about the amount of vinegar in the dressing, but it’s just right. I left the honey out and used monkfruit sweetener instead. We both really enjoy this salad. Hope they don’t do random drug testing at work!

Perfect Roast Chicken – Ina’s classic roast chicken. This recipe is an oldie, but a goodie.

Turkey, Bacon and Swiss on a Lettuce Bun – No recipe, just cut “cheeks” from a head of iceburg lettuce, fill with turkey slices, a slice of bacon, tomato, cheese and your favorite condiments. I like spicy brown mustard. Fast, easy, keto!

Keto Meatballs and Sauce – New Recipe! We’ll serve over zoodles to amp up the veggies.

Snacks:
Keto – Gouda Snacking Cheese, Cucumber slices, Celery and Peanut Butter
Delightful, Carb-Filled Snacks for Hubby – Watermelon, Grapes, Bananas, Tiny but Mighty Popcorn

Treat:
Keto Strawberry Icebox Pie – New Recipe! Honestly, this one was a mixed bag. A delicious, mixed bag that I would make again, but decrease the sweetener by half. This was just too sweet for our tastes as written. I didn’t bother to make the whipped cream for the two of us because, dang, that’s a lot of cream! I’m keeping this in the freezer, because it stays a little soft in the fridge. If you like strawberry cheesecake, you’ll like this pie. This would make a nice dessert for guests, and I bet they’d never guess it is keto!

Have a great week, everyone! I’ll just be over here, with paint in my hair and stain under my fingernails.
