Menu Monday PatrioticMenu for the week of 5 November 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 November 5th.  I cannot believe that I typed ‘November’ as the month.  Wow!  I have been insanely finishing a book – if my week goes as planned, I’ll finish Monday or Wednesday this week and will hand it over to my editor.  I’m anxious to finish it, because I’m anxious to start the next book.  I doubt I’ll even take a day off as this book is flooding my mind and interfering with everything as I mentally work through the story.

Despite all that, my family still has to eat – HA!  That has been a big challenge for me as I have spent the last two months turning my writing life into a full time focus — how to do that and keep up with real food.  I’ve done it, and I’ll say that the only way I’ve been able to do it is through planning.  Meal planning and sticking to the plan keep me sane.

So, this week is volleyball banquet, Election Day, superhero party, and Veterans’ Day all rolled into one!  As far as desserts go, I made some Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Raisin Cookies and sent some to a friend’s car dealership.  That Sunday at church, I was bombarded by his employees asking me to send more cookies.  I plan to do that this week, as well as make some Super Hero Sugar Cookies for our church’s Super Hero Party the boys will be attending Friday night. I also have a photo shoot for my author promotions and book covers this Saturday, so the menu Saturday night may be changed to read “dinner out with my handsome veteran husband” instead of something I cook.

Lastly, don’t forget that Topaz Heat is on sale this month for just 99 cents!

Volleyball Banquet!  Kaylee is instructed to bring a vegetable.  I will likely make some steamed broccoli, because that will go with just about any meat and I’m not certain what they’re serving
