Menu Monday

Menu for the week of 21 June 2010

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.

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of June 21st. As far as desserts go, I have a wedding cake to bake this week, so I’m not doing any desserts for my family.  We still have some leftovers from the bakesale Saturday, so they’ll be fine.

If you read me regularly, you’ll notice I went back to my normal Menu Monday style.  I am still doing the guidelines for the Abs Diet for Women, but I’m not posting it all.  It’s basically a high protein breakfast (Delightful Spinach and Dill Eggs, etc.), a high protein snack (Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie), a light but well rounded lunch (Satisfying & Crunchy Mixed Green Salad with Blue Cheese), a light snack (cheese stick and a few crackers, etc.), a good dinner with protein and a vegetable or salad (Cornmeal Crusted Rainbow Trout), and a sweet snack (yogurt).  With this diet, I walk a couple of miles a day, pushing the double stroller with about 65-70 pounds of toddler in it.  And doing all of that, along with caving in to my love of all things cake and cheating here and there WAY more than I want to, I’ve lost about 10 pounds in 4 weeks.  Not bad, and if I keep steady at it all summer, I should be well on my way to where I want to be.



turkey bacon, scrambled eggs


Celebrating the first day of summer!  Picnic at the park.  Hamburgers, beef hotdogs, potato salad, baked beans, and we’ll stop for ice cream on the way home.

(UPDATE: Jeb is sick.  We’ll probably trade dinners with another night this week and wait until he’s feeling better to do the park.)




Homemade fish sticks (recipe to follow), Family Fit Fried Potatoes, fresh peaches, cottage cheese



breakfast steak, fried eggs, toast


Italian Turkey Sausage Spaghetti Sauce, homemade whole wheat spaghetti, French Bread, garden salad




I have a friend coming over for dinner.  I’ve been saving to put this on my menu for when she could come, and I’m so excited to be fellowshipping with her and her family.  Vegetarian Fajitas, Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas, Spanish rice, homemade ice cream for dessert



toast with apple butter, fresh melon


I will be working on a wedding cake all day.  We’ll either go out to eat or order a pizza in, depending on my progress



cold cereal while Mommy recovers from wedding cake-ed-ness.


rotisserie chicken, Perfect Brown Rice, steamed broccoli, garden salad



beef sausage, scrambled eggs


roast beef, potatoes, carrots, green beans, garden salad
