Real Food Menu for Week of 12.7.2020

We’re still limping along over here. Mark’s broken foot is recovering steadily. He’s walking a little more each day and can go up and down stairs now. Hooray for healing!

Slowly, slowly the house is coming together for Christmas, starting with the nativity and front porch. Annnnnddd sometimes the decorating goes a little sideways. Or upside down.

Oh well.

I’ve got three new recipes for you in this week’s menu. With two “best ever” dishes, I sure hope they live up to the hype! 🙂

Mark’s Breakfast:
Cheesy Potato Frittata – New Recipe! You just can’t go wrong with eggs, potatoes and cheese for breakfast. I don’t normally have safflower oil on hand, so I use olive oil. This frittata is very mild in flavor; punch it up with a sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes or a drizzle of hot sauce if you like.

Mark’s Lunch:
Harvest Minestrone Soup – This makes a LARGE pot of soup and is a good recipe to prep ahead and freeze. Freeze in individual lunch portions, or in larger containers for quick, evening dinners.


Fiesta Honey and Lime Kale Salad – Here’s another meal prep dish. I like to prep it one day ahead to give the dressing time to soften the kale. This keeps for a few days in the fridge. Save some jalapeno slices to top the black bean soup below.

Vegetarian Hash – New Recipe! – Mark rated this one a 9, which is quite an endorsement coming from our Carnivore in Residence. This makes four hearty dinner portions.

Best Ever Broccoli Salad – This salad is served warm and is a nice alternative to the classic broccoli salads with mayonnaise based dressing. Three tablespoons of vinegar is a little too tangy for our tastes, so we use two.

Best Ever Black Bean Soup – Top with your favorite flavors; avocado, cilantro, jalapeno or hot sauce. The possibilities are endless. We like this with a dollop of natural sour cream.

Honey Mustard Dip with fresh veggies for me, gluten free pretzels for hubs. And popcorn. Always popcorn.

Cinnamon and Raisin Brown Rice Pudding – New Recipe! Mmmm, a warm comforting bowl of cinnamon and rice goodness! This processed sugar free version is so satisfying. An added pinch of nutmeg and zhush of extra cinnamon never hurt anything.

I hope your week is filled with all good things!
