Menu MondayMenu for the week of June 7, 2010

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of June 7th. This week is Vacation Bible School at my church!  I love VBS week, and so do my kids.  I’m working in the kitchen for the week, and we’re having hot dogs and chili for all of the workers for VBS every night before it starts so that they don’t have to worry about meals.

I am entering week 3 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 week my cake habit got the best of me.  I indulged in a slice of my son Jeb’s birthday cake, and ate a couple of doughnuts.  I’m a little bit irritated at myself.

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.  The Abs diet dinners are all very quick fixes.  I’m going to go ahead and list them, in case we get tired of hot dogs and chili and want something before we head to the church every evening.

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.
