Real Food Menu for Week of 7.27.2020

It’s time to start planting our zone 7a fall garden. We jumped the gun just a little and planted carrots, peas and cucumbers last night. Our tomatoes in the herb garden are coming along nicely. Something (rabbit? groundhog?) has nipped off the tops of the tomato plants in the veggie garden, so I need to leave a little cayenne surprise out there.

Garden cukes and tomatoes are finally rolling in here in Virginia! In this week’s menu, there are two new recipes to use those up, plus my favorite way to cook fresh or frozen vegetables.

Mark’s Breakfast:
Sausage Breakfast Scramble – Here’s a bowl of savory, comfort food for breakfast. We make the Italian version; omitting the salt and using just one half cup of cheese. But, if you like two cups, toss it in there! I don’t judge.

Mark’s Lunch:
Turkey Bacon Swiss on Lettuce Buns. Not so much a recipe, but a sandwich idea. My sandwich is based on the one linked below with a few substitutions. Slice the lettuce cheeks thinly, they don’t compress like bread. These are best assembled just before serving.

Dinner:

Quick Cucumber Tomato Za’atar Salad with Honey-Citrus Dressing – New Recipe! Mark loves this one and has already requested it again for next week. It’s super tasty, but the instructions are a little confusing. The olive oil mentioned in step 3 is not in the ingredients list, with no measurement given. Because we wanted a large salad, we doubled the entire recipe and used 1/4 cup olive oil in the dressing.

Balsamic Chicken with Onions – Simple, but flavorful. We like this one with brown rice and broccoli. Whether fresh, or frozen, we don’t steam veggies. Place them in a large cast iron skillet with the fat of your choice (coconut oil, olive oil, butter) and saute until tender crisp. Season with salt and pepper and serve.

Salmon in Roasted Pepper Sauce – Looks (and tastes) fancy, but so easy to prepare. This one comes together quickly enough for a weeknight dinner.
https://cooktoria.com/salmon-in-roasted-pepper-sauce/

Creamy Greek Pasta Salad – New Recipe! Mark rated this one a 9; he said he could deal with the feta, but not kalamata olives! We use lentil or chickpea pasta because it is less gummy than brown rice pasta. This large salad would be perfect for potlucks or family gatherings.

Snacks:
Ants on a Log, (Remember these from your childhood? I’ve got some celery singing it’s swan song in the fridge.) Watermelon, Popcorn, Grapes and Bananas.

Treat:
Coconut Milk Panna Cotta – This recipe is tried and true. If you’re unfamiliar, panna cotta is an ultra-smooth Italian pudding made with gelatin and cream. The coconut milk stands in for cream in this dairy-free version.

Topped with Strawberry Chia Jam – I use less honey than the recipe calls for. Adjust to your taste.

I hope your week is off to a great start!

Meal Prep for Week of 8.25.2019

The garden produce is slowing down a little, but we’re still up to our eyeballs in fresh herbs. The herb garden has become my happy place. (Well, in addition to Sunset Beach, the greenway, any ol’ clearance rack and, and, and…!) I absolutely love strolling out there to snip something fresh to add to our meals. I’ve got four new recipes for you this week, including a few vegetarian options:

Breakfast:
Keto Coconut Porridge – New Recipe! This porridge has an almost savory, mild, coconut flavor; which we enjoy. It’s quick and easy to prepare. However, we’re pounding through one can of coconut milk per day, so that adds up over the course of a week. We’ll likely reserve this one for occasional breakfasts going forward.
Recipes from Diet Doctor can be scaled to the number of servings needed. Don’t scale the salt in this recipe. Ask me how I know that.

Lunch:
Turkey, Bacon and Swiss on a Lettuce Bun – Slice “cheeks” from a head of iceberg lettuce to make the bun. I like my sandwich with spicy dijon mustard.

Dinner:

Tuscan Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Creamy Garlic Sauce – New Recipe!
https://www.savorytooth.com/sun-dried-tomato-chicken/?utm_source=pinterest&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=BlogButton

Garlicky Parmesan Zucchini Bake – New Recipe! We’ll serve this with a piece of fish or grilled chicken.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/garlicky-parmesan-zucchini-bake-clean-eating/

Annnnnd sometimes you add the parsley too early. Oops!

Oh well, I happen to love parsley and don’t think a half cup is too much for this recipe. I also love garlic, and this made the house smell like a pizzeria while it was baking. Broiling it for a few minutes with a little extra parmesan on top is always a good idea.

Cumulus Spiced Eggs – Super quick dinner! You can have this meal on the table in twenty minutes, start to finish. The eggs are the start of this show, so I recommend pastured eggs if available.
https://stonesoupvirtualcookeryschool.com/2013/06/cumulus-spiced-eggs/

Garlic Butter Salmon from this recipe:
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/one-sheet-pan-garlic-butter-salmon/
…with the carrots and broccoli from here:
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/homemade-teriyaki-salmon-meal-prep/

Chop Chop Fresh Veggie Salad – New Recipe! This salad is so tasty! To reduce carbs, I left the chickpeas out altogether, and I’m serving the olives and feta on the side, because a certain someone doesn’t care for them. *ahem*
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/chop-chop/

Snacks:
Mine: Gouda Snacking Cheese, Celery and Peanut Butter. Meh.
Hubby: Watermelon, grapes, bananas, Tiny but Mighty Popcorn…

Treat: Coconut Milk Panna Cotta topped with Chia Seed Strawberry Jam – To decrease the carbs, swap the honey in the panna cotta for a tablespoon (or so) of your favorite low-carb sweetener. I used Swerve.
https://deliciouslyorganic.net/coconut-panna-cotta-dairy-free-gaps-paleo-grain-free/
Same here. Deep-six the honey for a couple teaspoons of low-carb sweetener.

Meal Prep for the Week of 8.11.2019

True to form, I started a painting project yesterday and well, I’m in a little over my head. This one has been in the works for awhile and I’m starting to see that it will either be a glorious success or a spectacular failure. There is no in-between, I’m afraid. I’ll let you know either way. Here’s a sneak preview:

I haven’t had much time for cooking this weekend, so I have just a few pictures for you. I’ll update them going forward. Hope you don’t mind. Let’s dive into this week’s menu:

Breakfast:
Cinnamon Roll Noatmeal – This variation is so good! I added 3/4 tsp. of cinnamon and a smidgen of nutmeg (’cause it’s my favorite spice and I add it to nearly everything!) to the dry noatmeal mix from here…
https://www.healthysweeteats.com/my-favorite-noatmeal-aka-low-carb-oat-free-porridge-the-basic-recipe-and-6-variations/
…and made the cinnamon roll drizzle from here:
https://www.wholesomeyum.com/easy-low-carb-keto-oatmeal-recipe/

Lunch:
Chicken and Garlic with Fresh Herbs – We’ll have this with a side of fresh green beans from Pa Kettle’s garden. The chives, rosemary and thyme are all from our garden. We grilled the chicken and then finished it on the stove.
https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/chicken-garlic-with-fresh-herbs/

Dinner:

Keto Waffles – Breakfast for Dinner!
https://www.eatingonadime.com/keto-waffles-recipe/

Cucumber and Strawberry Salad with Poppyseed Dressing – New Recipe! Because sometimes you just want a light, refreshing salad for dinner. I was skeptical about the amount of vinegar in the dressing, but it’s just right. I left the honey out and used monkfruit sweetener instead. We both really enjoy this salad. Hope they don’t do random drug testing at work!
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/cucumber-strawberry-salad/

Perfect Roast Chicken – Ina’s classic roast chicken. This recipe is an oldie, but a goodie.
https://barefootcontessa.com/recipes/perfect-roast-chicken

Turkey, Bacon and Swiss on a Lettuce Bun – No recipe, just cut “cheeks” from a head of iceburg lettuce, fill with turkey slices, a slice of bacon, tomato, cheese and your favorite condiments. I like spicy brown mustard. Fast, easy, keto!

Keto Meatballs and Sauce – New Recipe! We’ll serve over zoodles to amp up the veggies.
https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/keto-meatballs-and-sauce/

Snacks:
Keto – Gouda Snacking Cheese, Cucumber slices, Celery and Peanut Butter
Delightful, Carb-Filled Snacks for Hubby – Watermelon, Grapes, Bananas, Tiny but Mighty Popcorn

Treat:
Keto Strawberry Icebox Pie – New Recipe! Honestly, this one was a mixed bag. A delicious, mixed bag that I would make again, but decrease the sweetener by half. This was just too sweet for our tastes as written. I didn’t bother to make the whipped cream for the two of us because, dang, that’s a lot of cream! I’m keeping this in the freezer, because it stays a little soft in the fridge. If you like strawberry cheesecake, you’ll like this pie. This would make a nice dessert for guests, and I bet they’d never guess it is keto!

Have a great week, everyone! I’ll just be over here, with paint in my hair and stain under my fingernails.
