Real Food Menu for Week of 10.12.2020

This rainy, but busy weekend was filled with last minute plans. On Friday, a friend and I hatched a plan to walk the Salem Half Marathon on Saturday morning. We chatted and strolled that hilly(!) course in light drizzle. The remnants of hurricane Delta. While in Salem I discovered a new gardening project that consumed the second half of the day. I kind of {heart} emergency gardening! More on that later if all goes well.

This week’s menu is chock full of some of our very favorite meals! If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it:

Mark’s Breakfast:
PBJ Overnight Oats – All the flavors of the sandwich for breakfast! None of that unnecessary bread.

Mark’s Lunch:
Spicy Pumpkin Chili – So good. I used 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes and one can each of kidney beans and black beans. This keeps for several days in the fridge, tastes even better reheated and freezes well. That’s a cooking win in my book!


Autumn Pear and Goat Cheese Chicken Salad – Tried and true! Very customizable. Add what you like, leave out the rest. We sub parmesan for the goat cheese.

Eggs in Tomato Sauce with Chickpeas and Spinach – New Recipe! Here’s a satisfying meatless meal. It won’t win any beauty contests, but it’s tasty nonetheless. The touch of cream cuts the acidity of the tomatoes.

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 most enjoy. 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.

Turkey Stuffed Bell Peppers – Because I’m no longer doing keto, I use ground turkey and add a little pre-cooked brown rice to the filling. These freeze well; make a few extra to keep on hand for one of those too-busy-to-cook evenings.

No Bake Energy Balls – New Recipe! Okay, so these are dangerous! We rated these little goodies a 10. Use them for a snack, treat, pre or post work-out. Go ahead and make a double batch and stash some in the freezer…if they make it that far.

Skinny Chocolate Fruit Dip for One – Or double the batch and make enough for two! We like a sprinkle of Lily’s chocolate chips. This dip is delicious with strawberries or orange slices. For the other fruit dips pictured here, see this post.

Happy Monday! I hope it’s a beautiful start to your week.
