Real Food Menu for Week of 5.25.2020

A friend pointed out to me that you really can’t have Memorial Day weekend without a big ol’ cheeseburger, so we’re taking that under advisement and firing up the grill today. My gluten-free, real food, Mediterranean Diet version will be turkey cheeseburgers on lettuce buns with a side of grilled corn on the cob. To make the lettuce buns, slice ‘cheeks’ off a head of iceberg lettuce. Pro tip: Slice them thinner than you think you should; they don’t compress like a good ol’ conventional hamburger bun.

For my American readers, take a moment today to reflect on the sacrifices of those who have lost their lives for the freedoms that we enjoy.

Here is our menu for the week:

Breakfast:
Breakfast Egg Muffins with Ham – I use spinach, roasted red pepper strips (jarred, I’m not a maniac!) and mozzarella cheese.

Lunch:
15 Minute Skillet Chicken Fajitas – New Recipe! I like to prep brown rice on the weekend to have on hand for quick dinners like this one. If you’re not a lover of spicy foods, I recommend starting with 1/2 tsp. and increase the cayenne to your liking from there. Two teaspoons of cayenne might just burn your taste buds off entirely.

Turkey Burgers on Lettuce Buns – Classic warm weather holiday weekend food…with a g-free, low carb twist. No recipe to follow, just combine ground turkey with a little salt and pepper and grill to perfection. Serve on lettuce buns with your favorite toppings.

Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala – New Recipe! – Since I haven’t yet joined the cult of Instant Pot, I’m glad this recipe has stove top directions for us dinosaurs. This dish is not too spicy, but you can kick it up a notch if you like.

Lemony Avocado and Tomato Tuna Salad – Mark’s not on Team Avocado, so we sub in English cucumbers for that. It’s every bit as delightful.

One Pan Honey Garlic Sausage and Veggies – Yum! We use the Never Any! brand of nitrate free Italian chicken sausage from Aldi. In other news, Mark tried asparagus for the first time in a long time, and didn’t hate it! Which is a really great thing because we just planted two massive rows of it in the garden.

Snacks:
We’re mostly noshing on fruit these days; watermelons are plentiful and cheap. Also bananas, apples and berries. And popcorn. Always popcorn.

Paleo Lemon Blueberry Scones – New Recipe! These are so simple and delicious. The brightness of the lemon plays Best Supporting Actress to those sweet blueberries. Great combo. As with most preservative-free, real food treats, store these babies in the fridge or freezer.

Have a safe and meaningful Memorial Day!

Real Food Menu for Week of 3.30.2020

Well, we’ve been under self-quarantine since last Wednesday. Not because either one of us is sick or exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, but because one of my co-workers visited family from NYC last weekend. It’s just not worth the risk of inadvertently passing it to Pa Kettle, or anyone else for that matter.

While we’ve been home this weekend, we had two beautiful days to get some yard work done. We limbed up two enormous white pines to allow more sunlight to the garden, pruned back the flowering quince and planted 25 money plants that Pa Kettle left on our sidewalk Friday afternoon. Loads of work, not much to show for it yet.

I’m trying to get through to next Sunday without going to the grocery store, so here is our menu for the week:

Breakfast:
Keto Waffles – If you’re not keto, top these with anything you like. When I was doing keto we enjoyed these with homemade whipped cream and fresh berries.

Lunch:
Low Carb Taco Casserole – To punch up the flavor a bit, I add an extra tablespoon of taco seasoning. We use Clean Food Crush’s taco seasoning recipe. If I have enough spices on hand, I mix up a quadruple batch. We use it on anything taco related.

Dinner:

Slow Cooker Corn Chowder – New Recipe! This satisfying chowder is perfect for early spring while we’re still having sporadic chilly days. It’s dairy free, and could go vegan if using vegetable broth and omitting bacon as a garnish.

Lemony Avocado and Tomato Tuna Salad – We usually sub English cucumbers for the avocado, but it’s delicious with both.

Pizza Frittata – New Recipe! Baked in my 8″ cast iron skillet, this puffed up beautifully, deflated and left a gaping hole on one side of the frittata! I’ll use ten eggs the next time I make it.

Cheeseburger Salad Bowls – This salad is refreshing yet hearty; we’ve been craving it lately. Delicious with ground beef, or lighten it up a bit using ground turkey.

Snack:
Pistachios, Gouda snacking cheese (Aldi), hummus and carrot sticks, apples, bananas and the ever-present popcorn

Chocolate Coconut Snowballs – Can I get away with making these one more time before warm weather is here to stay? I use this chocolate for the coating.

Have a great week, everybody!
