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!

Meal Prep for Week of 7.14.2019

Happy Monday to you! If you are new to Arthurized Home, you may wonder why I only plan 5 dinners each week. That’s done in order to leave room in the schedule for eating out or having a leftovers night. Throwing away food that’s expired is a huge pet peeve of mine!

The produce is rolling in from Pa Kettle’s and Wanda and Ed’s gardens (thank you!), so we’re eating all the veg this week!

Breakfast:
Almond Flour Biscuits with Tomato – A little bit of mayo is a Southern essential on these tasty sandwiches. We like Sir Kensington’s.

Lunch:
Keto Cobb Salad – Yep, we had this for dinner one night last week. We’re nothing if not predictable.

Dinner:

Easy Baked Enchilada Chicken with Green Beans – That name makes it sound like this came out of an Easy Bake oven. Remember those? I couldn’t find a green enchilada sauce that did not have canola oil, so I reduced a mild salsa verde on the stove and used that instead. This chicken bakes up moist, tender and delicious!

Low Carb Taco Casserole – I add an extra tablespoon or so of taco seasoning to this recipe. We use Clean Food Crush’s recipe.

Tomato and Cheese Pie – New Recipe!

Tomato and Cheese Pie
adapted from The Supermarket Diet Cookbook
Prep: 20 Minutes
Bake: 30 Minutes
Makes: 4 Servings
1 container (15 ounces) ricotta cheese
4 large eggs
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. salt, plus additional for sprinkling
1/8 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper, plus additional for sprinkling
1/4 cup milk
1 T. cornstarch – I use arrowroot powder
1 cup packed fresh basil leaves, chopped
1 pound ripe tomatoes (three medium), thinly sliced

1) Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, with whisk or fork, beat ricotta, eggs, Parmesan, salt and pepper until blended.
2) In cup, with fork, stir milk and cornstarch (arrowroot) until blended; whisk into cheese mixture. Stir in basil. Pour mixture into 9 inch glass or ceramic pie plate. Arrange tomatoes on top, overlapping if necessary. Sprinkle tomatoes with salt and pepper.
3) Bake pie until lightly browned around edge and center is puffed, 30 to 35 minutes.

Keto Snacks:
Mousies! – My grandma referred to these little ham, cream cheese and dill pickle appetizers as “mousies” because they look like little mice when they’re wrapped inside the ham! She certainly wasn’t afraid to be a little wacky; and we loved her for it!

Not the most photogenic snack, but tasty nonetheless!

Beautiful Carbs for Hubby:
Fresh Cherries *sniff*, Bananas and Watermelon

Treats:
Raspberry Cheesecake Fat Bombs – I’m still loving fresh berries as a treat, but I’m going to keep a batch of these in the freezer. I used one stick of butter, one 8 oz. package of cream cheese, 6 oz. of fresh raspberries and 8 packets of green stuff to make approximately 2.5 batches of this recipe. I refrigerated the mixture until it was firm enough to scoop onto a Silpat using a 1″ cookie scoop. My batch yielded 28 bombs.

Have a fantastic week, everyone!
