Menu Monday 31 January 2010

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 artificial sweeteners and unhealthy toxins such as those in preservatives.

One meal a week, we eat whatever we want. This is usually our “Dinner Out” meal.

If I have any leftovers, I usually serve 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 continue to link to my recipes as I post them.

For the next several months, it’s just me and the boys.  So, meals will be toned down a bit – especially breakfasts.  The boys aren’t big breakfast eaters, so I’m taking that off of the standard template for now and will put it back in when Gregg and Kaylee are home for good (which will be about the same time this summer)  .

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of Monday, February 1st. As far as desserts go, I’m going to be playing around with some Valentine’s dessert ideas for the blog, so we’ll likely do some cupcakes and at least some cookies – maybe some truffles, too.


BBQ hamburger patties, homemade macaroni and cheese (recipe to follow), green peas, salad


Pizza, salad


Wednesdays I cook dinners for my church.  Tonight’s meal is chicken marinara with homemade spinach fettucini (recipe to follow), French bread, green salad, cheesecake.  I need to figure out how to make cheesecake for 50+ when I only have two cheesecake pans.  If I can’t find a good bulk recipe that I’m happy with making in a regular cake pan, I’m going to have to change the dessert.


probably leftovers from church


oven fried chicken legs, mashed potatoes, green beans


beef sausage, pinto beans, brown rice, fried cabbage, cornbread


Heat-Free Chili, green salad, cornbread
