menu plan monday: 04.02.12

Last week, I had a menu full of new recipes.

I didn’t make it through all of them – the week got crazy hectic – but all of the ones we tried were really good.

Good enough to go into regular rotation. Seriously, the chocolate chip cookie recipe in Eat Like a Dinosaur is worth the price of the book alone.

This week, we only have one Little League game (whew!) and probably a few practices…but I’m starting the 21 Day Sugar Detox today, we have a Seder dinner at church Thursday evening, no school and friends coming for a cookout on Friday, a family Easter picnic in the foothills Saturday and then there’s Easter on Sunday.

I’m thinking we’ll try to keep it simple.

Breakfasts/Snacks
Coco-Monkey or Green Morning Smoothies (21DSD)
Kale, Bacon and Black Olive Pie (Eat Like a Dinosaur)
Paleo Muffin Tops (for the kiddos)…assuming my almond flour arrives soon
Chopped Veggies
Nuts
Green topped banana with almond butter

Monday
50/50 burgers (from Eat Like a Dinosaur)
Steamed Broccoli
Jicama Fries (from the 21 DSD manual)

Tuesday (allergy shots)
Chicken and Vegetable Lo Mein

Wednesday (game)
Shakey Pork BBQ (p. 53) with Texas BBQ Sauce (p. 145)
Mixed Greens

Thursday
Seder Dinner at church

Friday (cookout with friends)

Saturday (family picnic)
Tom is cooking the tri tip and I think I’ll bring a few of the sweetener free chocolate almond butter cups from the 21DSD manual

Sunday (Easter)
Ham
Mashed Cauliflower (Well Fed)
Cinnamon Parsnips (maybe with half carrots)
Kale with Bacon
