Mom, What’s For Dinner? – Week of April 23, 2018

Some of my meals are hold overs from the previous week because of LIFE.

Anyway I’ve sat down and figured out meals for this week.

One of the big things this week is the state superintendent is coming to our school on Wednesday.  My bulletin board is a HOT mess because I never really put anything on the board.  Then students come through and tear the paper.  I am going to stay after work on Monday to take care of the board and clean up my room.  Luckily I bought a frozen lasagna so Hubby is going to bake that or he is going to make the frozen orange chicken with frozen rice.

I love salads for lunch.  So easy.  I can put the ingredients in the fridge and quickly put together my lunch.  This week though I may do Mason Jar salads which are even easier.  Luckily I’m not a big Romaine lettuce fan.  I’ll eat it but it’s not my favorite.

Here are my breakfasts:

  1. Chocolate Chip Ricotta Muffins
  2. Cottage Cheese with Peaches
  3. Deviled Eggs

My lunches:

Dinners are broken into vegetarian meals and non vegetarian meals.  You’ll notice there is one meal that is the same.  It’s a non vegetarian meal that I’m going to serve to everyone.

Vegetarian:

  1. Lasagna Stuffed Peppers
  2. Baked Spaghetti  Squash and Cheese
  3. Pasta and Broccoli
  4. Enchilada Quinoa
  5. Meatless Orange Chicken

Non Vegetarian:

  1. Sausage and Mac and Cheese
  2. Enchilada Quinoa
  3. Honey Sesame Chicken
  4. Burgers and Fries
  5. Frozen Lasagna or Orange Chicken

 

I’m also getting some Naan bread so if I get a craving for pizza I can make my own.

Happy eating,
Traci

 

Our Easter 2018 Menu

Since I’m eating a vegetarian diet, coming up with a holiday diet is going to be interesting.

I went to Skinny Taste to try to find some vegetarian dishes that might be delicious.  I ended up finding all of my vegetarian dishes on her blog.  Not only will be my dishes will be vegetarian, they will also be healthy.

For the Meat Lovers in My Family:

Ham

Mashed Potatoes

Roasted carrots or Honey Glazed Carrots

The Vegetarian Part of the Meal

(All of the recipes come from Skinny Taste.)

Portabello Shepherd’s Pie (My main dish)

Cream of Asparagus Soup

Spiralized carrots with lemon and dijon

Brussel Sprouts and shallots with a balsamic glaze or makeover spinach gratin

Berry Salad

Shared Components of the Meal

Deviled Eggs

Easy Garlic Knots

Dessert – I haven’t decided on the dessert.

 

Happy Eating,

Mom, What’s for Dinner? – Week of March 12th

It’s been so LONG since I meal planned.  Between my gallbladder illness and then recuperation, it’s not been a priority.

My family and I are unique because the boys and Hubby are meat eating, gluten loving while I’m dabbling my feet back into the gluten waters and am currently a vegetarian.  So planning for suppers is difficult.

Here are my dinners for the week:

  • Sweet Potato Chili, Baked Apples, Cornbread
  • Red Beans and Rice, I think, and Roasted Veggies
  • Lentil Sloppy Joes on Baked Potato
  • Mushroom and Spinach Stroganoff over Mashed Potatoes

Here is what I planned for the gentlemen in my family:

  • Pantry Chili, Baked Apples, Cornbread
  • A freezer meal – I made up several before I could no longer eat meat.  I’ll randomly pick one of those out and cook it for them.
  • Sloppy Joes, Chips
  • Spaghetti

We will also have leftovers

I’ll have overnight oatmeal and smoothies for my breakfasts.  For lunches, I have leftover hummus tray and Hot Head Burritos from this weekend.  I will also make a blueberry, goat cheese, and almond salad with balsamic dressing.  Yum!

 

Mom, What’s For Dinner? – Week of February 19, 2018

It’s been a while since I menu planned.  With my gallstones, food has not been appetizing.  I create a menu but then decide I don’t want to eat any of the food on the menu plan.
