Real Food Menu for Week of 2.2.2020

We’re knee-deep in Arthur Birthday Season and had a super fun weekend of birthday prep and visiting with family. Pa Kettle has suddenly decided to be coy about his age, so he’s just telling folks that he is “forty-four more or less”.

With a busy weekend in the rear-view mirror and an even busier week ahead, we’re going back to the basics with several stand-by recipes. I’m excited to try the new recipe for Chipotle Chicken Sweet Potatoes.

Birthday boy!

Breakfast:

PBJ Overnight Oats – This tasty breakfast fuels our mornings with the familiar flavors of a PBJ sandwich.

Lunch:
The Bomb Paleo Chili – This recipe is a great way to get more veggies into your picky eater, especially if you grate them before cooking. (The veggies, not the picky eater.) We happen to like our veg, so no need for trickery. Don’t forget the special ingredient, cocoa powder. Delicious!

Dinner:

Marinated Salmon with Garlic and Herbs – We love this simple supper and serve it over garlic and herb cauliflower rice, which Aldi carries in the freezer section.

Double Baked Chipotle Chicken Sweet Potatoes – New Recipe!

Chicken Pineapple Curry – So yum! Serve over brown rice or cauliflower rice.

Kale Salad with Apricots and Almonds – New Recipe! Pa Kettle shared this recipe with me. No, he didn’t make it. He received it in the mail and thought I would like it. It’s very similar to the Convert Kale Salad that we crave on a regular basis.

Bowl of Doom – We’ll use up the rest of those sweet potatoes in this dish. This protein-packed Paleo dish would be equally good as a vegetarian meal, minus the beef.

Treat:
Superhero Muffins: Shalane Flanagan’s recipe packs a load of healthy ingredients into one muffin. This old favorite is doing double duty as fuel for training runs as well as the occasional treat. These freeze well, so I made a double batch.

Have a great week, Superheroes!

Real Food Menu for Week of 01.12.2020

One of my goals for the new year is to reduce food waste (and hopefully food costs) by doing a better job of meal planning. Wasting produce is a huge pet peeve of mine. I suppose composting it gives it a second life, but it’s not what I intended.

We received this compost bin at Christmas and I just love it. We previously kept our kitchen scraps in a bowl and emptied it every day. Now we can get away with emptying every few days because the filter eliminates any odors. Yay!

Breakfast:
Blueberry and Raspberry Baked Oatmeal – This recipe is an old favorite. Perfect for using up a few bananas that are heading into banana bread territory. We like it with a little coconut milk on top.

Lunch:
Slow Cooker Cabbage Soup – New Recipe! Tastes like a cabbage roll without all that work. The recipe says it yields 12 servings. Um. Maybe if you’re feeding tiny people, or consider a cup of soup a serving? This makes 8 nice bowls of soup.

Dinner:

Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Soup – New Recipe! – Very likely the most monochromatic meal we’ve ever had, but tasty nonetheless. We’re having this with Brazilian cheese bread on the side.

Mediterranean Chicken with Sun-dried Tomatoes, Artichokes and Capers – New Recipe! UPDATE: This meal was not only visually unappealing, it had a sharp acidity which neither of us enjoyed. And we don’t shy away from acidity around here.

Pickety Bits – Unfamiliar? It’s a charcuterie board, a grazing board, or whatever the trendy name for it is today. I prefer ‘pickety bits’. Essentially, you just arrange your favorite snacks on a serving board or platter and call it dinner. My kind of cooking. This is best made for a low-key evening; great for game night.

Turkey Herb Stuffing Style Riced Cauliflower – This isn’t a new recipe, I just forgot to take pictures of it! We’ll throw some turkey cutlets in the crock pot to serve with this delicious side.

Snacks:
Clementines, Bananas, Bell Peppers, Cucumbers and Hummus, Popcorn
Rinse and repeat (we never tire of this).

Treat:
Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies – Here’s a fun fact about Mr. Arthurized Home: He hates chickpeas. But he LOVES these little babies. We like them with these chocolate chips.
