Real Food Menu for Week of 9.8.2019

Birthday Month has officially started! Mark and I both have September birthdays so we decided to celebrate all month long. Actually, we kicked off the partying in August (why limit it to one month?!) with a family lunch at Wildflour, and then continued the celebration last weekend in Pittsburgh. My sister made beautiful and delicious keto Death by Chocolate Cake and Coconut Cream Custards.

Breakfast:
Almond Flour Biscuit with Tomato – We’re still working those garden tomatoes and this is one of the simplest ways to enjoy them!

Lunch:
Chop Chop Fresh Veggie Salad – Crunchy and delicious! To reduce carbs, I left the chickpeas out altogether, and I’m serving the olives and feta on the side, because a certain someone still doesn’t care for them. *ahem*

Dinner:

Carb Buster Breakfast for Dinner – New Recipe! So simple and so yum! I could eat this once a week.

Perfect Roast Chicken – Earth Fare had whole chickens on sale this weekend, so we’ll have roast chicken one night and then make chicken salad the next day.

Spinach Salad with Bacon and Eggs – New Recipe!

Snacks:
Celery and peanut butter, Gouda snacking cheese (Aldi)
Hubby: Tiny but Mighty popcorn, grapes, bananas, cottage cheese

Treat:
Chocolate Dipped Strawberries – We’re keeping it simple this week with fresh strawberries dipped in melted Lily’s dark chocolate chips. I add about a teaspoon of coconut oil to 1/2 cup chocolate chips while melting them in a double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, simply boil about an inch of water in a saucepan underneath a tempered glass bowl. Make sure that the boiling water does not touch the bowl above. Dip the strawberries and sprinkle with unsweetened coconut if desired.

Have a great week, everyone!

Meal Prep for Week of 7.28.2019

When I say that I had a busy weekend, what I mean by that is that I met some friends to run Saturday morning, and then spent the rest of the day with my nose in a book! I haven’t done that in forever, but it was a much needed break. A friend called us late Saturday evening and asked if we wanted to go pick her friend’s garden, so we said “Sure!” I’ve never picked veggies at twilight before, but it was a fun outing and great to spend time with her. We’re still loving the home grown produce, so let’s have a look at this week’s menu:

Breakfast:
Almond Flour Biscuits and Tomato – Gotta take advantage of those garden fresh tomatoes!

Lunch:
Mustard Glazed Baked Chicken Thighs with Green Beans
https://unsophisticook.com/baked-chicken-thighs/

Dinner:

One Pot Keto Sesame Chicken and Broccoli – New Recipe! Since we don’t own a microwave, steps 1 and 2 become:
1) Saute the broccoli in a large skillet until tender-crisp.
2) Remove from skillet and set aside.

Lemony Avocado Tuna Salad – Mark doesn’t care for avocado, so we sub in chopped cucumber. It’s just as tasty.

Keto Philly Cheesesteak Skillet Dinner – So quick, so simple, so good!
https://www.eatingonadime.com/philly-cheese-steak-skillet-dinner/

Cauliflower Pizza – Hello, old low-carb friend! I substitute ground flax meal for the psyllium husks. (What the heck are psyllium husks?! Ground cardboard? I don’t know.)
https://thestonesoup.com/blog/2016/09/27/cauliflower-pizza/

Snacks:
My keto snacks: Dill pickles, Celery and peanut butter, Cucumber slices
Mark’s carb snacks: Cherries, Watermelon, Tiny but Mighty Popcorn

Treat:
Wendy’s Inspired Keto Chocolate Frosty – New Recipe! This really does scratch the Frosty itch! I used two packets of Whole Earth sweetener.

These sundae cups were favors at our niece’s sweet sixteen party….*gulp*….14 years ago!

Have a great week, everybody!

Meal Prep for Week of 7.14.2019

Happy Monday to you! If you are new to Arthurized Home, you may wonder why I only plan 5 dinners each week. That’s done in order to leave room in the schedule for eating out or having a leftovers night. Throwing away food that’s expired is a huge pet peeve of mine!

The produce is rolling in from Pa Kettle’s and Wanda and Ed’s gardens (thank you!), so we’re eating all the veg this week!

Breakfast:
Almond Flour Biscuits with Tomato – A little bit of mayo is a Southern essential on these tasty sandwiches. We like Sir Kensington’s.
https://www.wholesomeyum.com/recipes/paleo-almond-flour-biscuits-low-carb-gluten-free/

Lunch:
Keto Cobb Salad – Yep, we had this for dinner one night last week. We’re nothing if not predictable.
https://www.ketoconnect.net/keto-salad/

Dinner:

Easy Baked Enchilada Chicken with Green Beans – That name makes it sound like this came out of an Easy Bake oven. Remember those? I couldn’t find a green enchilada sauce that did not have canola oil, so I reduced a mild salsa verde on the stove and used that instead. This chicken bakes up moist, tender and delicious!

Low Carb Taco Casserole – I add an extra tablespoon or so of taco seasoning to this recipe. We use Clean Food Crush’s recipe.

Cauliflower Pizza – A perennial favorite

Keto Waffles with Bacon – Breakfast for Dinner is soooo good!

Tomato and Cheese Pie – New Recipe!

Tomato and Cheese Pie
adapted from The Supermarket Diet Cookbook
Prep: 20 Minutes
Bake: 30 Minutes
Makes: 4 Servings
1 container (15 ounces) ricotta cheese
4 large eggs
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. salt, plus additional for sprinkling
1/8 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper, plus additional for sprinkling
1/4 cup milk
1 T. cornstarch – I use arrowroot powder
1 cup packed fresh basil leaves, chopped
1 pound ripe tomatoes (three medium), thinly sliced

1) Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, with whisk or fork, beat ricotta, eggs, Parmesan, salt and pepper until blended.
2) In cup, with fork, stir milk and cornstarch (arrowroot) until blended; whisk into cheese mixture. Stir in basil. Pour mixture into 9 inch glass or ceramic pie plate. Arrange tomatoes on top, overlapping if necessary. Sprinkle tomatoes with salt and pepper.
3) Bake pie until lightly browned around edge and center is puffed, 30 to 35 minutes.

Keto Snacks:
Mousies! – My grandma referred to these little ham, cream cheese and dill pickle appetizers as “mousies” because they look like little mice when they’re wrapped inside the ham! She certainly wasn’t afraid to be a little wacky; and we loved her for it!
https://kalynskitchen.com/easy-recipe-for-ham-and-dill-pickle/

Not the most photogenic snack, but tasty nonetheless!

Beautiful Carbs for Hubby:
Fresh Cherries *sniff*, Bananas and Watermelon

Treats:
Raspberry Cheesecake Fat Bombs – I’m still loving fresh berries as a treat, but I’m going to keep a batch of these in the freezer. I used one stick of butter, one 8 oz. package of cream cheese, 6 oz. of fresh raspberries and 8 packets of green stuff to make approximately 2.5 batches of this recipe. I refrigerated the mixture until it was firm enough to scoop onto a Silpat using a 1″ cookie scoop. My batch yielded 28 bombs.

Have a fantastic week, everyone!
