Real Food Menu for Week of 9.14.2020

Boy, this weekend flew by! Too bad I don’t have much to show for it. We hung out with Pa Kettle Friday night, ran ten miles on Saturday, plus a pilgrimage to Hobby Lobby (y’all crazy for that fall decor!), a bit of meal prep yesterday and we’re back to the grind today. Oh well, it was a fun weekend.

Here’s what’s on the menu:

Mark’s Breakfast:
Blueberry Coconut Chia Pudding – I’ve got a load of chia seeds to use up, and that’s as good a reason as any to make this delicious breakfast. These keep for several days in the refrigerator. Prep ’em on Sunday night and have breakfast all week long.

Mark’s Lunch:
Quick and Easy Chicken Salad – Prep the salad ahead of time and keep in the fridge for a few days. Are you seeing a theme here? We like to serve this on a bed of fresh spinach.

Dinners:
Supreme Pizza Inspired Salad – All the flavors of pizza, none of the regret. Use a quality pepperoni; we like Hormel Natural. To keep the pepperoni fresh, add it just before serving.

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

Summer Squash Oregano – This hasn’t been a bountiful year for summer squash, but I need to make this goodie at least once more before summer ends.

Summer Squash Oregano

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

This old Southern Living magazine recipe is a favorite. It’s so old that I can’t find the recipe online! I’ve searched. This dish is fantastic for using oregano and summer squash fresh from the garden.

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh oregano
  • ¾ lb. yellow squash, sliced
  • ¾ lb. zucchini, sliced
  • 4 tomatoes, chopped
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large skillet; add onion, garlic and bell pepper and saute until tender.
  2. Stir in oregano, yellow squash and zucchini. Cover, and cook, stirring occasionally for 15 minutes.
  3. Stir in tomato, salt and pepper; cook, uncovered, until squash is tender. Spoon into a serving dish, sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Middle Eastern Chicken Kebabs – Sprinkle a little za’atar on these babies if ya like! Serve with the easy-peasy tahini sauce below for dipping.

Snack:
In addition to our usual snacks of fruit, nut and popcorn, we’ll enjoy dipping fresh veggies in this Tahini Sauce with Lemon and Garlic – New Recipe! Add all three tablespoons of water for dressing, start with one tablespoon for a dip or spread, then add more until reaching the desired consistency.

Treat:
Cardamom Plum Buckle – New Recipe! We think this is delicious, albeit a little too sweet. Okay, a lot too sweet. Use a honey that’s light in color, but decrease it by half. Don’t want to steal the plum’s thunder. If your buckle is getting a little brown (like mine!), wrap a collar of foil around the edges toward the end of the bake time.

I hope your week is *just* sweet enough!

Real Food Menu for Week of 4.20.2020

I feel like we’re living the Groundhog Day life up in here. Get up, go to work, come home, sleep, do it all over again. The odd excitement is getting to go for a long run, which we did on Saturday morning. We ran the virtual Blue Ridge 10k and had a wee sliver of race day fun. Even though the race was cancelled, Roanoke still came out to support the runners. There were shouts of encouragement from strangers driving by, signs to distract and entertain, and even a stash of water on the way up to the Star on Mill Mountain.

Crossing back over the Walnut Avenue bridge, we heard a band playing below us at Dr. Pepper Park. I later learned they were filming Rock to the Rescue, an ongoing benefit for Downtown businesses who’ve been impacted by the COVID-19 closures. As we approached Elmwood Park, we were surprised by a small group of people waiting to cheer us across the virtual finish line. I love the spirit and tenacity of our little city! We’ll be back next year, Blue Ridge!

I’m diving headlong into another work week, filled with delicious, home-cooked meals:

Breakfast:
Healthy Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal – One 8×8 pan will be enough for Mark’s breakfast. If you’re meal prepping for two, double the batch and bake it in a 9×13 pan. I like to add a little extra cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg for good measure.

Lunch:
Lunch will be a bowl of soup and a small side salad. I’m making both of the salads below.

Green Curry of Broccoli Soup – So good!

Zucchini Salad – Like potato salad, only made using zukes. As with all Diet Doctor recipes, scale it for your crowd. I use half of the mayo the recipe calls for, and sub in Greek yogurt for the other half.

Chop Chop Fresh Veggie Salad – This one is a favorite. Crunchy and refreshing!
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/chop-chop/

Dinner:
Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Bacon – New! Serve with a piece of grilled chicken or fish – I subbed Canadian Bacon for *actual* bacon, because that’s what I had on hand, and I was too lazy/tired/sorry to visit another store.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/eat-clean-roasted-brussels-sprouts-bacon/

Mason Jar Spinach Salad – Sub Whole Earth sweetener for the sugar, we use Sir Kensington’s mayo.

Teriyaki Salmon – Scale the recipe for your crowd, as written it serves one. If you’re gluten free, substitute tamari or coconut aminos for the soy sauce.

Supreme Pizza Inspired Salad – New Recipe! – Because of the pepperoni, this is a once in a while recipe. We like Hormel Natural pepperoni. This salad is best prepared just before serving so the pepperoni and tomatoes stay as fresh as possible.

Snacks:
Watermelon season is finally upon us and I could not be happier about that. Kroger has seedless watermelons on sale and the one we brought home is delish! Wanna know how to select the perfect watermelon? Thump them hard with your fingertips and listen for the one that sounds the most hollow. I usually thump six or seven of them just to be sure. Give it a try!
Watermelon, Popcorn, Veggies and Hummus, Apples, Bananas

Treat:
Keto Key Lime Pie Jars – These are a tasty way to sneak a little healthy fat into your dessert. For maximum creaminess, make sure the avocado is guac-ready before you make these babies.

I hope you all are staying happy, well and safe. Have a great week!
