Weekly Menu

... Paleo Suppers...

Do you say "dinner" or "supper" for your evening meal?  I use them interchangeably.

I don't know what we'll have when, yet.  But assuming I get to the stores (Costco & Aldi), this plan should last us through the weekend, at least.

And, of course, since I can never follow a recipe exactly, I'm sure I will tweak these based on what we like/what I have on hand.

Here are the ideas.  I basically just went here and browsed until I came up with enough dinners ideas.  Thanks, guys.  They have some unique/ethnic/fancy-in-my-book/gourmet type stuff that my family may not like OR would just be too much work for me, so I tried to pick out some of the simpler/more regular recipes.

Paleo Chicken Pot Pie
Paleo Orange Chicken & Broccoli
Meatza (make a standard, non-Tex-Mex version)
Bean-less Chili
Primal Chili Cheese Dogs
Beef Stew (if I am feeling confident that I won't ruin the meat)

I will let you know how they turn out!

Speaking of turning out, yesterday I made some homemade Italian sausage to go in the red pepper sauce with our spaghetti squash.  I did it just like the breakfast sausage I make, just with different seasonings.  Browned some ground turkey.  I dumped in a bunch of Italian seasoning, some dried onion, some garlic powder, and some salt.  I didn't have any fennel or I would have added that, too.  It wasn't spicy or super flavorful (I'd rate it as quite mild Italian sausage), but my kids liked it and that's the most important thing.

Have a great week!
