Real Food Menu for Week of 12.15.2019

Slowly but surely, we’re decorating the house for Christmas. We’ve never been early decorators, although I admire those who are. I just can’t get it together. We buy our tree later in the season, so it is fresh for our family visiting between Christmas and New Year’s Day. Don’t want the tree to be the first to leave the party!

Some years we’ve had to buy the Charlie Brown trees due to our tardiness, but we love the scraggly ones just the same. Amid all the last-minute preparations, here’s what we’re eating this week:

Breakfast:
Healthy Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal – Smells and tastes amazing! Bake once, and eat breakfast all week long. We doubled the cinnamon and cut the carbs by using monk fruit maple flavored syrup. Serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt for a protein boost.

Lunch:
Crock-Pot Italian Chicken Soup – Creamy (dairy-free!) and packed with flavor, this recipe is a favorite! It’s very forgiving; use whatever veggies you have on hand. If including broccoli, add it during the last hour of cooking so it doesn’t get mushy. Top with chopped parsley and a little parmesan cheese if you like.

Dinner:
Mediterranean Sheet Pan Salmon and Zucchini Noodles – Yum! We ate this a few weeks ago, and my pictures turned out horribly. (Darn you, dark-at-5:00 evenings!) I’ll try to get some good pics and update the post.

Autumn Pear and Goat Cheese Chicken Salad – We can’t get enough of this one! Subbing parm for the goat cheese.

Perfect Roast Chicken – Ina’s recipes are always a home run. This chicken turns out perfectly every time. Great company meal!

Snacks:
Bananas, Apples, Grapes, Avocados, Oranges. Almost daily, Mark makes popcorn in his Whirley-Pop. Who needs potato chips when you’ve got a fresh bowl of hot popcorn? A sprinkling of Lily’s chocolate chips makes it a decadent treat.
We’re also having roasted red pepper hummus with cucumber slices, and an antipasto snack of olives, grape tomatoes and mozzarella pearls. And by *we* I mean *me*; Mark doesn’t do hummus, or olives.

Treat: With all the Christmassing going on, we really don’t need a treat this week. See also, sprinkling chocolate chips on popcorn, above.

How cute are these vintage (1960’s?) popcorn bowls I thrifted a million years ago?!

I hope your week is off to a happy start, with loads of fun activities planned for the days ahead!

Convert Kale Salad – It’s called ‘convert’ because people who think they don’t like kale, try it and convert! http://belated-bloomer.blogspot.com/2016/01/a-little-wrap-up-of-these-finals-days.html
