Menu Plan Monday September 30!


Last week was just crazy. I am definitely not used to working out of the house every day of the week–even just mornings! We weren’t sick, but there were quite a few days when I didn’t cook. We ended up eating frozen leftovers and other leftovers and the fresh veggies I had cooked. So, a lot of this week’s menu is a repeat.

The theme for the GF Menu Swap over at Celiac Family is broccolini! I am interested to learn the difference between broccoli and broccolini. I don’t recall ever having used broccolini before. We do eat broccoli regularly though! My favorite is roasted broccoli and the last couple of weeks I’ve been fixing it that way for my snacks for the week. Of course it’s so good that it doesn’t last the whole week, but that’s another story!

Last week my favorite meal was the Potato Soup. I couldn’t believe how easy and tasty it was with cashew sour cream and almond milk. I will be making that again this winter! This week we’ll be working on using up the things we didn’t eat last week! The breakfast of the week is Paleo Pancakes and sausage. We are certainly going through the maple syrup! I don’t mind as long it means the end of the Breakfast Wars!

Breakfast: Buckwheat granola with unsweetened vanilla almond milk and cinnamon toast
Lunch: Spaghetti sauce over butternut squash for me, and over noodles for everyone else, roasted broccoli and canned peas
Supper: Apple crisp (recipe coming up this week!), canned fish, pickles, roasted beets with balsamic vinegar and sea salt

Dinner from Sunday!

cereal in a pinch

Veggie Pot Pie over mashed sweet potatoes instead of the biscuits (chicken breast for the meat eaters!)
Shrimp Teriyaki Stir Fry
Tuna Apple Salad
Grilled Cheese
Breakfast for dinner (maybe eggs?)
Pizza, salad
Smoothie (I’m in love with this smoothie!), Popcorn

      I do like to eat. And I have some back up for cooking. Glenn put together the spaghetti sauce yesterday, so I had energy for the cashew cheese, ketchup, apple sauce, and apple crisp. However, I am tired today. It’s not the cooking that wears me out it’s the doing the dishes part afterwards!
