Weekly Menu


So, we have to eat this week (and we have been, don't worry).  I may as well post the plan, right?  I'm going to be lazy and only do new links that haven't been shared before.


Breakfasts:
eggs and homemade sausage
fruit
smoothies
coffee/milk

Lunches:
leftovers

Dinners:
Trader Joe's brisket (non-paleo), sweet potatoes, salad
My kids loved this brisket, and so did I.  Probably because it is coated in sugar aka barbecue sauce.
meatza (a non-greek version), salad
shepherd's pie x2
roasted turkey breast, creamy corn (non-paleo), cranberries, salad, sparkling apple cider x2

We will also be eating with work friends and family a few days this week.  I'm sure there will be some more unhealthy indulgences.  Just being honest.  And they will taste good at the time and then we will feel like butt and want to get back to a healthy lifestyle after the week.  Yay!

Here's my non-recipe for how I make shepherd's pie.  Brown the beef.  Add seasonings: garlic, onion, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, balsamic vinegar, sometimes a little water.  Put in a 9x13 pan.  Layer pre-cooked salted and buttered vegetables of your choosing on top (green beans, peas & carrots?).  Layer pre-cooked mashed sweet potatoes on top (made just like white mashed potatoes - not sweetened.  I use butter, milk, salt, pepper, garlic, onion, and a touch of chili powder).  Bake at 350 until hot and top begins to brown.  Serve and eat.  It is not pretty, but it is good.  Probably one of my husband's favorites.

I will probably try to roast the turkey breast in the crock-pot like this... I'd also like to try that stuffing recipe.  Since it has meat and is paleo, could we eat that as a main dish sometime?

Happy Thanksgiving!
