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!

Meal Prep for Week of 3.24.19

We’re trying several new recipes this week. Three of these are recipes that we’ve made before and they are keepers! The baked oatmeal is a breakfast favorite. It’s an easy dish for guests and is a crowd-pleaser. The Steak Fajitas and Roast Chicken with Carrots and Bacon are tried and true as well.

Here’s the menu for this week:
Breakfast:
Blueberry and Raspberry Baked Oatmeal https://www.sohowsittaste.com/blueberry-raspberry-baked-oatmeal

Lunch:
Sweet N’ Spicy Pineapple Chicken Skillet https://cleanfoodcrush.com/sweet-n-spicey-pineapple-chicken-skillet/

Dinner:
Strawberry Avocado Salad with Honey Lime Dressing https://cleanfoodcrush.com/strawberry-avocado-salad-clean-eating/
Roast Chicken with Carrots and Bacon – I’m taking some help from the grocery store and using a bag of organic baby carrots. I prefer crispy bacon, so I’ll fry it separately and sprinkle it on top when I serve this dish. https://cleanfoodcrush.com/chicken-bacon-skillet/
Sheet Pan Steak Fajitas https://kirbiecravings.com/sheet-pan-steak-fajitas/
Quick and Easy Chicken Salad https://cleanfoodcrush.com/quick-easy-chicken-salad-recipe/
Garlic Butter Salmon and Red Potatoes https://cleanfoodcrush.com/one-sheet-pan-garlic-butter-salmon/

Quick and easy Chicken Salad – I made a little extra dressing because we are serving this over a bed of baby spinach.

Snacks:
Homemade Granola – This recipe name should say “processed sugar free” because it contains maple syrup. https://www.5dollardinners.com/homemade-granola-sugar-free/
Greek Yogurt, Grapes, Mandarins, Cantaloupe, Pineapple
Bell Peppers and Cucumbers, Celery and Peanut Butter
Homemade Dill Dip is from this dressing recipe. We use Sir Kensington’s Organic Mayonnaise and substitute raw honey for the sugar. https://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/layered-salad/

I found the joie containers at Home Goods; they hold about two tablespoons of dip. The tiny jar in the back is from a restaurant. It’s the perfect size for this use.

Treat:
Double Dark Chocolate Brownies https://cleanfoodcrush.com/clean-eating-double-dark-chocolate-brownies/

So good! The recipe says to finely grate the zucchini, but we don’t have kids that we’re trying to sneak vegetables into, so I gave my zukes a regular grate. You can see them in the finished product, similar to a chocolate zucchini bread. If that bothers you, go with the fine grate.

I hope you’ll try some of these recipes this week. Let me know in the comments if you do! Have a great week!
