Real Food Menu for Week of 5.11.2020

We brought our plants indoors Friday evening in anticipation of frost or a freeze. I’ve got asparagus babies ready to go into the ground along with some milkweed for the butterflies; dianthus and petunias for the window boxes on the garage.

It really was too cold this weekend to work outside except for a few hours Sunday afternoon, so we’ll set those garden tasks aside for a few more days. You know you’re a real adult when the highlight of your weekend is freshening up the mailbox with new numbers and a coat of paint for the flag! #sadbuttrue

Here is this week’s menu:

Mark’s Breakfast:
Paleo Almond Flour Biscuits – An old favorite from my keto days.

Lunch:
Slow Cooker Cabbage Roll Soup – Simple, comfort food at its best!

Convert Kale Salad – Hands down our favorite kale preparation. We’ve tried several different versions of kale salad but we keep coming back to this one.

Sheet Pan Steak Fajitas – Gotta fix these occasionally to keep my Carnivore in Residence happy. Don’t be afraid of all those spices. They’re a really nice blend, without a lot of heat.

Quick and Easy Chicken Salad – We love this one. Make it even easier by using a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store.

Lean Bean Meatballs with Greens and Rice – A new favorite dish!

Snacks:
Bananas, Apples, Popcorn – blah-ditty, blah.

Treat:
Peanut Butter Cookies – if you’re expecting the peanut butter sugar-bomb of traditional cookies, you might be surprised with these. To my palate, these little bites have a peanut butter/banana flavor with just a hint of sweetness.

I hope your week is off to a smooth start! Make it a good one!

Real Food Menu for Week of 2.10.2020

We had a busy little weekend with Night to Shine on Friday, followed by a six mile jaunt to the star on Mill Mountain Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon found us puttering around the house, and we wrapped up Arthur Birthday Season on Sunday with a nice lunch for our nephew.

Have you been to a Weaver Street Market? My boss recently discovered this gem in his travels and has been raving about their food bar. He’s now planning his trips so he can eat there. I’ve not visited one yet, but the recipes on their blog caught my eye, so we’re sampling a couple of them this week.

Breakfast:
BLT Breakfast Bake – While we’re not doing Paleo or Whole 30, this protein-packed dish is a great way to start the day! We’ll use half a pack of bacon in this recipe and the rest in the broccoli salad. We buy Hormel Natural or the Never Any uncured hickory bacon from Aldi.

Lunch:
Paleo Egg Roll In A Bowl – Nope, still not Paleo, but we love this real food twist on an egg roll. Prepare as is for vegetarian, or add a protein. We like the chicken option. Fresh dianthus blooms are optional!

Dinner:

Apple Cider Glazed Salmon – New! I don’t have Lusty Monk mustard on hand (although that name is hilarious!) so I’m using another spicy, stone ground mustard.

Creamy Coconut Lentil Curry – Yum! We add 1/2 tsp. of garam masala and 1/2 tsp. of curry powder, for a little extra flavor.

Lean Bean Meatballs with Greens n’ Rice – New! This dinner was a pleasant surprise. We made it using ground turkey instead of ground chicken thighs. I thought Mark wouldn’t care for it because he’s not a fan of spice, and the stone ground mustard is pretty hot. He loved it, and rated it a “10”! This meal is going into the regular dinner rotation.

Best Ever Broccoli Salad – I wasn’t sure how I would feel about a warm broccoli salad, but this recipe has become a cool weather favorite.

Snacks:
We’re having carrots and cukes with hummus (Aldi’s organic red pepper hummus is a fav), popcorn, grapes, and bananas.

Treat:
Chocolate Dipped Strawberries – We’ll have them on Valentine’s Day with our heart pizza. I like to decorate these using unsweetened, shredded coconut.

Happy Monday! Let’s do this thang!
