Menu Monday 24 FEB 14

Posted by Hallee on Feb 24, 2014 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

I cannot believe that it is already the last week of February. That means that my birthday is Sunday! I’m having my annual birthday book signing at our local Christian bookstore, and my parents will be coming in town. So, it’s going to be a busy week here…

Menu Monday! 27 JAN 14

Posted by Hallee on Jan 27, 2014 in menus & menu planning

It has been an entire year since my last Menu Monday! Wow!

It is CRAZY how much easier life goes when I make a menu for the week. And, honestly, when I’ve not been putting it up on this blog, I’ve not been really creating one at home, either…

Passing the Mantle

Posted by Hallee on Apr 5, 2013 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning, Parenting, Raising teens

I spent quite a bit of time developing a menu for them for the week. Kaylee is more than capable in the kitchen, but cooking one meal a week versus cooking for a week straight are two different things entirely – especially when you’re a 16-year-old. kaylee menuShe and I worked together to create a menu that wouldn’t overwhelm her…and I made a few concessions that I wouldn’t make for myself. For instance, I bought spaghetti noodles, where I would make my own pasta. And, I bought some organic boxed mac & cheese and some organic tater tots to go with hot dog night. But, for the most part, the menu is homemade, real food.

Menu Monday 14 JAN 13

Posted by Hallee on Jan 14, 2013 in menus & menu planning

Welcome to my weekly menu!

This week is going to be a low-key week for me. Because my 6-year-old was sick with the flu all last week, I lost a week of working (I don’t work when my kids are home). Thankfully, I’d had several blog posts already queued, so the blog went without a hitch. But, the surprise book I want to release on February 14th is really getting to crunch time. If you wanted a copy of my Budgeting Spreadsheet, make sure you leave a comment in the post. I also wanted to thank everyone for the amazing responses to With Fear & Trembling.

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. We try to have a few meals a week vegetarian (see my post on eating meat) and eat fish at least one meal a week. One meal a week is usually a “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 January 14th. As far as desserts go, it’s rainy and cold outside as I type this, so that puts me in the mood for some sort of steamy hot fruit cobbler. I also made some Apple Fritters Sunday morning for breakfast. Oh my, they were good. Kaylee has asked me to add them to the standard weekly meal.

Menu Monday 07 JAN 13

Posted by Hallee on Jan 7, 2013 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

I hope you had a happy new year! I took a much needed 2-week blogging break. But, I didn’t stop working! My next book will publish February 14th! I can’t wait to tell you about it. For now, it’s a big surprise. You don’t want to miss anything about it, though, so make sure you sign up for my newsletter. Readers of my newsletter will get notification about the book before anyone else! The sign-up is in my sidebar. (And anyone who signs up before midnight tonight is entered to win all four of my books in ebook form, or one in paperback!)

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of January 7th. As far as desserts go, we are currently working through Yummy Yellow Cake with Delectable Chocolate Buttercream Frosting. When that is gone, I intend to make Gregg some of his favorite pudding — tapioca!

Menu Monday 05 NOV 12 – Election Day & Veterans Day Week!

Posted by Hallee on Nov 5, 2012 in menus & menu planning

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, 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!

Menu Monday 15 OCT 2012

Posted by Hallee on Oct 15, 2012 in menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of October 15th. I cannot believe that October is already half gone! As far as desserts go, I’m going to make a batch of pumpkin bread for a friend. I also have children complaining about the empty cookie jar, so I’m going to make a batch of Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Raisin Cookies!

I am guest posting at Stacy Makes Cents today. I give you a method to work freezer cooking until you’re conceivably only cooking one night a week, and give you a good “starter” recipe for freezer cooking. You can read about it here.
