Menu Monday 18 JUN 12 — Daniel Fast Week 2

Posted by Hallee on Jun 18, 2012 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning |

Menu Monday

Menu for the week of June 18, 2012.

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 June 18th.

Gregg and I have felt the need to fast for several weeks now, but we were crazy around here with the end of school and getting books released. So, we’re starting the fast last week. The reason for the timing is this: this is seriously the only chunk of summer that isn’t rife with military training for the national guard or summer camps, etc., for our ministries. If we were going to fast this summer, it has to start now.

We are doing Daniel Fast. My blog post about that can be found here, but basically, it’s vegan extreme – and I’m throwing in my own personal restriction to unleavened bread only. Last week, Gregg did a juice fast during the day and ate vegan soups in the evening.  This week he’s in line with me on a regular Daniel Fast.

On Saturday, we are having the boys’ birthday party.  My parents and my sister and her family will be in town.  I haven’t really felt tempted by food this fast, but we’ll see how I do with full meal preparations, homemade ice cream, and birthday cake!
