Menu Monday January 25th
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.
This is Gregg’s last week home. This week’s menu will be completely catering to his food favorites.
Here’s the menu for my family for the week of Monday, January 25th.. As far as desserts go, I’m making red velvet cake mini cupcakes with mascarpone cheese frosting, and I’m making Gregg some homemade whole wheat vanilla wafers. The cookie jar is full of them now, but he loves them, so I’m making him some to make peanut butter sandwich cookies with.
Dinner with friends (I’ve heard rumors of chicken marsala)
oatmeal blender waffles, beef bacon
I cook Wednesday night dinners at our church. The menu tonight, to feed ±60, is roast beef, carrots & potatoes, green beans, garden salad, yeast rolls, apple pie
cheese grits, beef bacon, scrambled eggs
we’re having company for dinner. I’m going to make tamales (recipe to follow), Spanish rice, seasoned corn, flan

Mediterranean chicken, rosemary and garlic ground lamb, Hummus bi Tahini, grape leaves (recipe to follow), homemade pita bread, Greek salad
oatmeal, wheat toast, fruit smoothie

Wow! How many people do you cook for at church? Great menu… I’m working on mine!
This week will only be the second week we’ve done it. The first week, we had 54. I’m waiting on the count to tell me how many to have this week. Yesterday morning, I was told they already had the same number signed up before Sunday services were over and people were reminded to sign up, so we’ll see. I’m doing all my tentative planning around 60.
Your meals sound delicious! You seem to have a great variety(my own personal struggle).
Wow! Your menu sounds so much tastier than mine, I would love to be at your house for dinner Friday, homemade pita bread and hummus is the way to my heart. Can’t wait to see your recipe for grape leaves, I’ve tried them at restaurants and always wonder how they are made.
Wow, your meals look delicious. I LOVE making homemade bread too. Yum Yum……
Thank you! I try very hard to make sure there is a variety of meals not just weekly, but monthly as well. One trick I’ve used is to make sure that once a month, I make a new recipe. We’ve found some gems of recipes that way.
I cannot wait for your tamale recipe!!! One of my favorites!
