Weekly Menu

So, when we were at the lake, I made the pizza crust from Primal Cravings with some alterations (less liquid?) because I forgot that the recipe called for plain gelatin and didn't have any with me.  I don't remember exactly what I did, but I tried to remember and recreate it at home this week, and it didn't turn out as well.  It was OK, but not a crispy as before or when I did follow the recipe exactly.  So, lesson learned.  Follow the recipe if you can, it is in the cookbook for a reason.  Ha. :)  I had to return the book to the library, but I saved a few more recipes to try.

next experiment: an award-winning cauliflower crust
Breakfasts:
eggs, turkey sausage
leftovers
gingerbread muffins (from Primal Cravings)
banana blueberry egg muffins
coffee, creamer
(I could eat just eggs everyday for breakfast, but my kids like some variety and fun stuff now and then, so that is why you see some baked goods in our breakfasts.  It's not an everyday thing, it is a once or twice a week thing.)

Lunches:
adults-
tuna salad (mayo - this was the first, easiest, and best paleo mayo I tried, 2 years ago)
kale chips
meat & spinach muffins (attempt w/ zucchini?)
peaches
kids-
mini chicken tacos, sour cream
nitrate free hotdogs
sweet potato chips
peaches

Kids' snacks:
trail mix
greek yogurt w/ berries

Dinners:
Monday - shrimp taco salad
Tuesday - primal chicken tortilla soup, organic corns chips & guac (left from last week's menu)
Wednesday - spice rub crock pot chickengreen beans, salad w/ dressing
Thursday - philly steak skillet, oven potatoes
Friday - chopped vegetable salad, greek meatballs
Saturday - moroccan salmon, cilantro-lime slaw, sweet potatoes

Dessert:
primal fudge

If I had unlimited funds, these seem like a pretty fun snack/easy quick meal component.

If you are just getting started on paleo, this post is valuable.  It has some great links within it.  Lots of her recipes on our menu this week, because I just read her cookbook.

Here are our grocery purchases for the week.

Have a good Sunday!
