Dinner on the Go

Posted by Hallee on Aug 10, 2012 in Hallee's Galley, Life, Parenting

Yesterday, I planned to make hamburgers. But, my afternoon got away from me and I didn’t get the buns made in time. While I thought about what to do, it occurred to me that I don’t want to spend the next 8 weeks eating beef hot dogs and hamburgers. I figured, why not just make a meal and serve it on paper plates?

Quick & Easy Turkey Pot Pie

Posted by Hallee on May 3, 2012 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

This is the re-make of a recipe that called for processed food. Instead of cream of chicken soup and biscuit mix, I made everything from scratch. It was DELICIOUS. And, it was QUICK, and EASY. I had all of the elements put together in 10 minutes. Dinner was on the table 30 minutes later.

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of March 26th. As far as desserts go, I think we’re going to make some peanut butter cookies this afternoon, and maybe a chocolate cream pie in the middle of the week.

Roasting a Whole Chicken

Posted by Hallee on Feb 24, 2012 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips, Recipes

These conversations all happened within a week or so of each other. They intrigued me only because roasting a whole chicken is my “I don’t want to put effort into dinner so I’m going to roast a whole chicken” fallback.

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of January 9th. As far as desserts go, Scott has been begging for pudding, and I have an abundance of bananas, so I think I’m going to make some banana pudding with homemade Whole Wheat Vanilla Wafers!

Menu Monday 05 DEC 2011

Posted by Hallee on Dec 5, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of December 5th. As far as desserts go, I’m making Stuffed Red Velvet Cookies (but I’m going to experiment with juicing a beet to use for the red dye instead of commercial dye) for a birthday present for a work colleague of Gregg’s, and making Stacy’s Pumpkin Roll for a birthday present for the kids’ horseback riding instructor. I’ll probably be nice and make double to share with the family. :-)

Menu Monday – 07 NOV 11 – Daniel Fast Week 5

Posted by Hallee on Nov 7, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of November 7th.

Our church is currently observing 40 days of fasting, and Gregg and I decided that we would do a Daniel Fast. We are on our final week of the fast, and , you have seen a “vegan extreme” diet. We are consuming only fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and drinking only water – no sugars, honey, syrups, nor eating leavened bread. Kaylee is observing her own form of this fast and will be abstaining from the sugars and the meat – she will be consuming dairy, however. The boys will be eating our meals with us, but will have some meat and will have dairy.

For breakfast, we are making a juice in our juicer out of kale, carrots, apples, and fresh ginger root. Several good juice recipes can be found here. I’ve also been making smoothies out of mango, fresh pineapple, bananas, oatmeal, flax seed, and coconut milk. We drink one or both of them for our breakfast.

For lunches, we will be eating hummus with fresh vegetables, avocado and salsa in Ezekiell 4:9 tortillas (the only tortillas I could find with nothing in them but grains), salads, or something like unsweetened peanut butter and bananas with tortillas.

I pray that by sharing our journey with you, you will receiving a blessing from it.

Menu Monday 17 OCT 11 – Daniel Fast Week 2

Posted by Hallee on Oct 17, 2011 in Daniel Fast, diet & fasting, Hallee's Galley, menus & menu planning

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of October 17th. Our church is currently observing 40 days of fasting, and Gregg and I decided that we would do a Daniel Fast. For the next few weeks, you will see a “vegan extreme” diet. We are consuming only fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and drinking only water – no sugars, honey, syrups, nor leavened bread. Kaylee is observing her own form of this fast and will be abstaining from the sugars and the meat – she will be consuming dairy, however. The boys will be eating our meals with us, but will have some meat and will have dairy.

For breakfast, we are making a juice in our juicer out of kale, carrots, apples, and fresh ginger root. I’ve also been making smoothies out of mango, fresh pineapple, bananas, oatmeal, flax seed, and coconut milk. We drink one or both of them for our breakfast.

For lunches, we will be eating hummus with fresh vegetables, avocado and salsa in Ezekiell 4:9 tortillas (the only tortillas I could find with nothing in them but grains), salads, and unsweetened peanut butter with tortillas.

I pray that by sharing our journey with you, you will receiving a blessing from it.

I will also be making Red Velvet Cupcakes with Mascarpone Cheese Frosting and Delectable Deluxe Brownies for Gregg to take to a meeting at work.
