Menu Monday

Menu for the week of September 13, 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.  Our daily bread is Whole Wheat Honey Oatmeal Bread.

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of September 13th. This is my first week with my new schedule, so I will be doing all of my baking on Monday. My husband has requested Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Cookies.  I also may try my hand at carrot cake – something I have never made before but something I’ve always wanted to try.  A friend of mine posted on her Facebook a chocolate chip whole wheat pumpkin muffin recipe and said it was delicious.  I have the rest of last year’s pumpkin in the freezer still, and pumpkins growing in the garden that will be used to replace the stash, so I need to do some pumpkin baking.  I think chocolate chip pumpkin muffins is a brilliant use of my supply.



Kaylee has requested chocolate chip pancakes.  I’ve never made chocolate chip pancakes before, but I’m willing to give them a go.  I’ll be using my Old Fashioned Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes as the base.


Hearty Beef Stir Fry, Perfect Brown Rice




I try to cook a meal for the volunteers at BINGO with whom I work on Tuesday nights.  Tuesdays are my long volunteer days, though, and some times I just can’t.  This week, my goal is to make:

Spinach Lasagna, traditional lasagna, French Bread, garden salad



stuffed French toast.  I made this with my George Foreman grill this past weekend using sandwich bread, and thought I’d give it a go for a blog recipe using French bread.  I’m excited to try it!


rotisserie chicken, Moroccan Rice with Dried Fruit & Nuts, green peas, garden salad



cream of wheat, turkey sausage, whole wheat toast


chicken wings, homemade French fries, celery & carrots, homemade blue cheese dressing



Whole Wheat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins (recipe to follow), protein smoothie


My sister is coming into town!  They may be a bit late, so I’m going to make Heat Free Chili, Old Fashioned Cornbread, and a garden salad to just have on hand when they come in.



We bought half a grass fed steer that I have to pick up from the butcher early this morning.  So, as much as I’d love to make my sister and her family a big Kentucky breakfast, we’ll probably stick with Ma-Maw Lucille’s Buttermilk Biscuits and turkey sausage gravy, just to make it an easy morning.


Family Favorite Steak & Gravy, Wonderful Whipped Potatoes, Green Beans, garden salad, Granny Everman’s Yeast Rolls



Sue Gregg’s Oatmeal Blender Waffles, beef bacon, fruit salad


Mouthwatering Cornmeal Crusted Rainbow Trout, Hurry Up Hushpuppies, Hearty Sweet Potato & Black Bean Hash (I’m making such a hearty side, because my daughter typically doesn’t like most fish — I’m trying to have a good vegetarian meal option in case she decides she doesn’t like rainbow trout.)


I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
