Weekly Menu


Well, we gotta eat this week, so what's it gonna be?  Let's see here...

I went to Price Chopper today and spent $25 on a bunch of chicken breasts, apples, bananas, butternut squash, and eggs.  Saved $30-some because everything was on sale.  I also spent a buttload boatload at Costco this week on non-food items, stocking up while the coupons were still valid (tp, razor blades, baby wipes, deodorant, etc.).

Breakfasts:
the usual-
eggs
sausage
bananas
berry cobbler
smoothies*

Lunches:
chicken
cheese
veggie straws
apples
pistachios

Dinners:
meatloaf or meatballs, green beans x2
sundried tomato chicken bake or braised balsamic chicken, squash, broccoli x2
chicken and green bean stir fry with cashews
bean-less chili? x2

*I was inspired by the Pioneer Woman this past week to make a pumpkin smoothie.  I made mine with raw milk, frozen ice cubes of plain canned pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, some grade B maple syrup, and then some ice cubes blended in to make it frothy at the end.  It was like a milkshake, pretty yummy, depending on how much maple syrup you add :)  Also, lately, for our other smoothies, the fruit ones, I've often been using raw milk in place of coconut milk.  I kind of just decide that day what I feel like and what we have more of in stock.

An interesting note:  For Halloween, we handed out snack sized Twix bars and fruit leather.  We set the treats out while our kids went trick-or-treating.  Guess what was the hot item that was gone when we returned?  The fruit leather!  I was pleasantly surprised.

Have a good week!

P.S.  Has anyone tried this paleo bread?  I want to give it a shot once I get the ingredients.
