Real Food Menu for Week of 5.18.2020

We’re coming off a fun and busy weekend. We had dinner and hung out with Pa Kettle on Friday night. On Saturday, we had our group run, participated in a “we miss you” parade for a friend and then went back to Pa Kettle’s house for some gardening fun. He taught me how to plant corn and we picked three huge bags of dill. We dug up a few small cedar trees and several white lilacs to transplant here.

I’ve got four new recipes for you this week. Here is the menu:

Breakfast:
Blueberry Pie Overnight Oatmeal – New Recipe! Mark raved about these.

Lunch:
Chicken Rice Soup – Yum! Comfort food at it’s best.

Dinner: (We plan four dinners each week to leave room in the schedule for a leftovers night or to eat out.)

Strawberry Avocado Salad – New Recipe! We learned three things the first time we ate this salad:
1) Mr. Arthurized Home still dislikes avocado.
2) Mr. Arthurized Home added asiago cheese to the extensive list of Foods He Dislikes.
3) Mr. Arthurized Home would swim laps in a vat of that Honey Lime dressing. (Seriously. Try it! It’s that good.)

Cauliflower Pizza – We love this crust! I substitute ground flaxseed for the psyillium husks.

Cod in Fresh Tomato Basil Sauce – New Recipe! Not the prettiest dish on the planet, but a savory, light meal that won’t leave you feeling weighed down.

Easy Vegetarian Chili – New Recipe! I was a little concerned that vegetarian chili would just taste like, well, vegetable soup with beans, but this one surprised me! Look for good quality refried beans without inflammatory oils; I used Kroger’s Simple Truth Organic brand.

Snacks:
Watermelon – served nightly! Popcorn and the usual fruits: Bananas, apples, and berries.

Treat:
Peanut Butter Fruit Dip – Try this with chilled red grapes; all the flavors of a PBJ, none of that carb-laden bread! If dips are your thing, you may be interested in this post, or this one.

Rainbow Fruit with 3 Healthy Dips

You won’t miss the sugary cereal or rainbow colored candies this St. Patrick’s Day; these tasty treats will satisfy your sweet tooth and that of any visiting leprechauns! The fruit dips are all gluten free and two of them are nut free.

Rainbow Fruit Tray:
Choose any fruit that you enjoy in the colors of the rainbow. Cut into similar size pieces and arrange in ROYGBIV order.

Rainbow Skewers:
Starting with the purple fruit, guide it onto the pointed end of a 6″ wooden skewer. Slide the fruit toward the flat end, leaving about 1″ of skewer exposed. This will function as a handle. Work in rainbow order to the red fruit. If you’re using strawberries for ‘red’, be sure to leave enough space on the pointed end of the skewer to hold it securely.

Now on to the dips!

Peanut Butter Dip: I made this dip without any modifications. Try dipping red grapes in this one. It has all the flavor of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!

Chocolate Fruit Dip: I doubled the batch to make one cup. Instead of coconut sugar, I used honey. I left out the almond extract and added one teaspoon of Godiva chocolate liqueur. I sprinkled a few Lily’s chocolate chips for garnish. This dip is amazing with strawberries and orange slices.

We try to eat 90/10. 90% foods made in nature and 10% or less of foods made in a factory. These chocolate chips are part of that 10% and we enjoy them as an occasional treat.

Creamy Lemon Fruit Dip: I made this according to the recipe. It’s light, refreshing and just sweet enough. The recipe lists “lemon peel” under toppings where it should say “lemon zest”. I don’t think lemon peel would be very tasty mixed into this dip. Because this dip is not as thick as the others, it would be fantastic drizzled over a fruit salad or mixed berries.

Drizzle that lemon dip over this!

I hope your St. Patrick’s Day is a happy one filled with all the shenanigans you can handle!
