Menu Monday 24 August 2009

The “rules” of our household diet: About every two to three hours between meals, we eat healthy snacks like fruit, nuts, yogurt, or a smoothie. We avoid any pork and any bottom feeders like catfish and shellfish. We avoid artifical sweeteners, like Splenda, Aspartame, and High Fructose Corn Syrup and unhealthy toxins like trans fatty acids and MSG.

But, one meal a week, we eat whatever we want. This is usually our “Dinner Out” meal. This week, it will be our Tuesday breakfast with the church youth group.

I don’t typically have room in my menu for leftovers. If I have any, I typically eat them for lunch the next day, or we’ll save them during the week to graze lunch on the weekends.

Almost all of the breads are homemade – I’ll add links to recipes as I post them.

For desserts, I had listed for the week an apple pie and a peach cobbler, but the apples on my apple tree do not look good at all. I haven’t picked one yet that doesn’t look like it’s been ravaged by birds or worms, and I saw nothing worth writing home about in the produce section at the grocery this weekend. SO – scratch apple pie and put in pumpkin pie. I harvested a pumpkin out of the garden that I need to cook and can, so I’ll leave out enough with which to make a pie. It’s Kaylee’s favorite and that will please her. I also have left over chocolate pudding cake. YUMMY!
