Real Food Menu for Week of 5.4.2020
Do you ever feel like you worked all day long and at the end of the day can’t name one project you fully completed? That’s what is happening at our house right now. We’ve got a lot going on but nothing much to show for it. One project depends on another and it’s snowballing out of control.
The herb garden is one bright spot. It has overwintered beautifully and the plants seem to be healthy and happy. The other night when I was coming home I startled a wascally wabbit in the garden. I’m pretty sure he was fixin’ to chow down on my lily plants. Again. The onions and garlic planted around the lilies are not deterrent enough, so I’ve got a little cayenne surprise for him. I’ll share the recipe and report back if you’re interested.
Anywhooo, it’s back to work today and we’re diving head-first into this busy week. Here’s what we’ll nosh on as we go:
Blueberry & Raspberry Baked Oatmeal – This one is a perennial favorite and a real crowd-pleaser. We prepare this bake when we have overnight guests.
Breakfast Scramble Meal Prep Bowls – We love breakfast for dinner, or anytime, really! I add extra bell peppers to this recipe and use two tablespoons taco seasoning mix.
Taco Seasoning: I mix a quadruple batch of this and store it in a glass jar.
Layered Salad – We divide this recipe in half for the two of us. Add the dressing just before serving. Also, I love ya, Pioneer Woman, but you’re layering this all wrong. Everyone knows the cheese goes on top of the salad. But, we’ll play it your way for now.
Strawberry Chicken Salad with Avocado Dressing – You want an avocado that is guac-ready for this dressing. If not, the dressing could be bitter, instead of creamy.
Southwestern Squash Casserole – Delish! We use Bob’s Red Mill g-free 1 to 1 baking flour to thicken.
Salsa Verde Chicken Skillet with Brown Rice and Guac – New Recipe!
Along with our usual popcorn and go-to warm weather snack of fresh watermelon, I’m making these real food cookie dough balls.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls – New Recipe! Pre-exercise fuel, or post-exercise treat? That’s your call. I used a 1″ cookie scoop and this recipe yielded 30 balls. As with most real food treats, store these preservative-free babies in the fridge or freezer.
Grilled Pineapple with Ricotta and Honey – Yum! Grilled fruit is amazing. The pineapple is so sweet, I don’t think this needs the drizzle of honey.
Have a great week!
