Weekly Menu


Last week, I forgot to buy salmon fillets, so we had cheap and easy hash in stead.  I also didn't get around to making the soup, so it is on the menu again.  As you can see, we are embracing cheese at lunchtime right now, leaning more primal than paleo.  Here's the plan for the week...

Breakfasts:
grain free pumpkin chocolate chip muffins (mmm, fall...)
eggs & bananas
coffee, milk

Lunches:
nitrate-free cheddar hot dogs
sherried tomato soup & crunchy primal crackers
cottage cheese & nectarines
carrots, apples
fudge babies

Dinners:
chile lime chicken burgers (bunless of course), sweet potatoes, salad with dressing
carne asada fajita bowl x2 (peppers, onions, pico de gallo, guac, ) x2
balsamic glazed drumsticks, sweet potatoes, green beans x2
meatloaf, peas x2

I was NOT in the mood to grocery shop, but made myself do it on Thursday since I had a good window of time to do it, sans children.  20 mile march, I told myself.  That's a discipline reference from a talk I heard from Jim Collins.  Yes, I had to psyche myself up for it.  I went to Aldi, Hy-Vee, and Trader Joe's, spending $122, total.  I was totally suckered in by the latest TJ's Fearless Flyer and bought several things highlighted there (the hot dogs, burgers, carne asada, frozen grassfed beef, nectarines, etc.), so spent the majority of my money there.  I got home late and didn't take any pictures for you this time.  Here is a great list of paleo items from Trader Joe's if you are interested.

I am looking forward to some new recipes this week, and some we just haven't had in awhile.  Have a good week!

I'm sharing these menu ideas here!
