Menu Monday

Menu for the week of May 31, 2010

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of May 31st. Last week, I was really sick, so I didn’t stick to my menu at all.  I roasted a couple of chickens, made some quick taco meat that I mixed with kidney beans and put on top of a bed of lettuce, and one day threw together a  batch of Hallee’s Heavenly Pizza out of dough and sauce I had frozen from the last time I made pizza.  So, the kids ate real, home cooked food, but that was all I had in me to do for them.

I am entering week 2 (because I skipped last week, we’ll still consider this week 2) of combining the strict following of the Abs Diet for Women menu plan (well, strict in the sense of measurements, less strict in the sense of how it’s prepared and seasoned) performing the Walking the Walk: Getting Fit With Faith journal and exercise regimen, pulling some meals from there when I’m faced with shellfish or pork in the Abs Diet menu. Last Monday, I did indulge in Team Jacob Cupcakes (and I’ll admit I ate 2 instead of just 1) but other than that I was very disciplined about my cake habit.

The Abs diet calls for eating every 2 hours, so I am including the snacks in my menu plan in case there is someone who wants to do it with me. I will post the recipes as quickly as I can get them posted.  This is the same menu plan as last week, in case it seems familiar.

The kids will be eating with me, mostly. There’s a lack of starch in the Abs Diet menu, so I’ll be giving them starches here and there. I’ve added their meals to the menu. Those things I will not be eating with the kids, you will find the words in green.

I will be posting about this in detail at the end of this four weeks.

The “rules” of our household diet can be found in the tab above labeled Hallee’s Galley and further explained in Our Diet.

I usually serve leftovers for lunch the next day, or we’ll save them during the week to graze lunch on the weekends. One meal a week, we eat whatever we want. This is usually our “Dinner Out” meal.

Almost all of the breads are homemade using fresh milled flour. I’ll continue to link to my recipes as I post them.
