menu plan monday: 07.30.12

This Sunday, my husband officially becomes the pastor of two congregations.

The kids go back to school here in two and a half weeks.

If everything works out, I go back to school the week after that to pursue a degree in nutrition.

And I can’t figure out where the heck summer has disappeared to.

This week’s menu plan is a little bit all over the place. It’s the end of what seems like a really long month when it comes to budget. It’s going to be busy and we’re going to be out of town a few days. Some of these meals might be dependent on when I can sneak in Costco and grocery trips.

So…this is probably more of a loose goal than an actual menu plan. As in the past, our meals are predominantly paleo or primal in nature (come back tomorrow if you want to know a bit more about what I’m eating now and why). We do, on occassion, enjoy sweet or red potatoes, sometimes white rice in small amounts and corn when it’s fresh and extra yummy. And I generally double the amount of meat I cook for each dinner in order to have leftovers for lunches.

Monday
Grilled Chicken
Corn on the cob
Zucchini
Watermelon

Tuesday
Mushroom Gravy Slow Cooker Roast
Mashed Cauliflower
Roasted Potatoes (for the kids)
Kale

Wednesday
Lemon Herb Rubbed Chicken
Cucumber Salad
Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Thursday
Doctor’s appointment an hour away – either eating out or all beef hotdogs

Friday
Red Curry Glazed Chicken Skewers
Roasted Cauliflower (drizzling with coconut oil and my favorite vadouvan spice mix )
White Rice (for the kiddos)

Saturday
Lime and Basil Beef Kabobs
Salad
Whatever fruit we have on hand

Sunday
Mom’s Night Off/Leftovers

What’s on your meal plan for this week?

  1. So, I have to tell you that I pulled out your “taco roast” (or that is what I call it) crock pot recipe again and once again loved it. This time, after the initial tacos, I put the meat over my greens for salads for a week and just had thoroughly indulgent “taco salad” each day. It’s such a great recipe that I’m actually taking it to the beach with me in September and making it for my very picky , very in love with mexican food mom, dad and sister. I anticipate I’ll be sharing the recipe with THEM after that.

    • Yay, I love to hear that! It’s one of our very favorites still, too. Every week when I make our menu plan, I always ask if there’s anything in particular that’s requested…and every week Caleb says “Taco Roast!”. I think he’d eat it several times a week.
      I love the leftovers on a salad, especially with some guacamole.
