Menu for the week of 14 January 2013

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.


Monday:

 

Breakfast:

corned beef hash, fried eggs

Dinner:

16-Bean Soup, Whole Wheat Cheese Bread, garden salad

Tuesday:

Breakfast:

Dinner:

Southern Fried Chicken, Wonderful Whipped Potatoes, Creamy Chicken Gravy (recipe to follow), corn, garden salad, Ma-Maw Lucille’s Buttermilk Biscuits

MenuMonday-Patriotic

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

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!


Monday:

 

Breakfast:

scrambled eggs, turkey sausage

Dinner:

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

Tuesday – Election Day!

Breakfast:

Homemade Whole Wheat English Muffins (recipe to follow) sandwiches made with hard fried eggs and turkey ham

Dinner:

Simple Vegetable Soup (recipe to follow), Crusty Whole Wheat Cheese Bread, garden salad

Wednesday:

Breakfast:

Dinner:

Buffalo Chicken Wings (recipe to follow), homemade French fries, carrots & celery with homemade blue cheese dressing (recipe to follow)

Thursday:

Breakfast:

scrambled eggs, toast

Dinner:

ground lamb in Homemade Whole Wheat Pita Bread, Hummus bi TahiniStuffed Grape Leaves, Greek salad

Friday:

Breakfast:

Dinner:

Super Hero party at church

Saturday:

Breakfast:

cold cereal, fresh fruit

Dinner:

Spinach Lasagna, French Bread, garden salad

Sunday – Veteran’s Day:

Breakfast:

It is also Pastor Appreciation Day at our church.  We will be having a pot luck lunch after church.  I’m going to bring Sweet Potato & Black Bean Hash

Dinner:

Dinner at our church’s small group

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of August 27th.  I am prepping to be away for six days to go to my cousin’s wedding, so I’m going to double-up a couple of recipes and freeze them so that Gregg can just heat up pre-prepared meals for him and the kids.  As far as desserts go, we are up to our elbows in apples – canning, freezing, juicing.  So, I’m going to make an Good Old Apple Pie or nine and freeze them, and I’m also going to make Brown Sugar Apple Crisp.  That is so good that my kids asked me to make it for every day.

Menu Monday 18 JUN 12 — Daniel Fast Week 2

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!


Monday:

Breakfast:

grapefruit, raw almonds
The children will be getting scrambled eggs & turkey bacon.

Lunch:

Baked potato seasoned with black pepper and salt, salad with lemon juice and olive oil

Dinner:

Yesterday, we made a potato soup using rice milk.  We added sweet potatoes and carrots to the basic potatoes, celery, and onion soup.  It was really good.  We’re having leftovers, with a salad.  The boys will have bread and butter with theirs.

Tuesday:

Breakfast:

oatmeal with dried fruit
The children will have toast as well

Lunch:

Hummus with Sunflower Seed Paste, Greek salad with kalamata olives, Whole Wheat Tortillas

Dinner:

Black beans & Perfect Brown Rice, Sautee’d Summer Vegetables, salad.  The children will have beef sausage with that.

Wednesday:

Breakfast:

bananas and a spoonful of unsweetened peanut butter
The children will have scrambled eggs and Southern Cheese Grits

Lunch:

Mixed greens salad with melon and sliced almonds

Dinner:

Spaghetti (I will make this sauce, but leave out the meat), whole wheat pasta, and salad.

Thursday:

Breakfast:

Mango and banana smoothie (made with coconut milk)
The children will have cold cereal

Lunch:

Black beans & Perfect Brown Rice, salsa, Whole Wheat Tortillas

Dinner:

Wild Rice Stuffed Butternut Squash, kidney beans,  Perfect Brown Rice, salad.

The children will also have baked chicken legs.

Friday:

Breakfast:

baked oatmeal

Lunch:

salad, guacamole, tortilla chips

Dinner:

Tacos made with Homemade Refried Beans and Corn Tortillas.  Guacamole (recipe to follow)

Saturday:

Breakfast:

fresh fruit and dried nuts
The children will have cold cereal

Lunch:

Hummus with Sunflower Seed Paste, Greek salad with kalamata olives, Whole Wheat Tortillas

Dinner:

Dinner out

Sunday:

Breakfast:

The children will also be having beef bacon

Lunch:

Vegetarian Quesadillas (grilled vegetables inside grilled tortillas — no cheese), guacamole

We will be serving lunch to the birthday party guests consisting of roast beef sandwiches, turkey sandwiches, fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, chips, homemade ice cream, birthday cake

Dinner:

Very Chunky Vegetarian Chili

I’ll be roasting a turkey and making sweet potatoes, fresh green beans, Wonderful Whipped Potatoes, Turkey Gravy, and Granny Everman’s Yeast Rolls for my visiting family

Menu Monday 11 JUN 2012 – Daniel Fast Week 1

Menu Monday

Menu for the week of June 11, 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 11th.

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 this 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, and will unfortunately collide with the combination birthday party we’re throwing for the boys at the end of the month.  But, it will be the end of the fast, so we’ll be in a good stride by then.

Yesterday, I started a 21-Day 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. Gregg is actually doing a juice fast during the day and eating vegan soups in the evening, so you’ll see pretty much only soups as our evening meals.

This week is also VBS at church.  I’m working in the kitchen, so the temptation to eat foods not on the fast is going to be great — especially with this being the first week of the fast.


Monday:

Breakfast:

oatmeal with dried fruit
The children will be getting toast with that.

Lunch:

Baked potato seasoned with black pepper and salt, salad with lemon juice and olive oil

Dinner:

The children will eat the dinner prepared at church.

Gregg will be taking Hearty 16-Bean-Soup to feed the volunteers for our weekly work with Glen Eden Youth Center.

Tuesday:

Breakfast:

grapefruit, raw almonds
The children will have turkey bacon and scrambled eggs

Lunch:

Hummus with Sunflower Seed Paste, Greek salad with kalamata olives, Whole Wheat Tortillas

Dinner:

Crockpot Vegetable Soup (made like Crockpot Vegetable Beef Soup but with no beef) and salad. I will probably add some Great Northern Beans to the crockpot just to add some protein.

The children will eat the dinner prepared at church.

Wednesday:

Breakfast:

bananas and a spoonful of unsweetened peanut butter

Lunch:

Mixed greens salad with melon and sliced almonds

Dinner:

Black Beans Tortilla Soup (and a salad for me)

The children will eat the dinner prepared at church.

Thursday:

Breakfast:

Oatmeal with dried fruit and pecans
The children will have theirs’ sweetened with maple syrup

Lunch:

Black beans, brown rice, salsa, Whole Wheat Tortillas

Dinner:

Very Chunky Vegetarian Chili

The children will eat the dinner prepared at church.

Friday:

Breakfast:

fresh fruit and nuts

Lunch:

salad, guacamole, tortilla chips

Dinner:

Fresh Tomato Soup

The children will eat the dinner prepared at church.

Saturday:

Breakfast:

fresh fruit and dried nuts

Lunch:

Hummus with Sunflower Seed Paste, Greek salad with kalamata olives, Whole Wheat Tortillas

Dinner:

Vegetable and Navy Bean Soup (recipe to follow)

The children will also be having grilled cheese sandwiches

Sunday:

Breakfast:

Oatmeal with dried fruit and nuts

Lunch:

Vegetarian Quesadillas (grilled vegetables inside grilled tortillas — no cheese), guacamole

Dinner:

Hearty 16-Bean-Soup

The children will also be having cornbread and salad
