Menu Monday: Back on Track

It hasn’t been a month since I’ve posted menus, or anything else of  that matter… or has it? Sigh. As my freelance writing work picks back up again, combined with other obligations, my blog took the default backseat. Not cool. I will work on my priorities. Now on to menus.

Menu Plan Monday

The weeks that I have had a menu plan have been awesome. (That’s Paleo Shepherd Pie in the photo above, from another week’s menus.) I think our grocery budget has remained constant, but the time saved and the stress-free nights from planning ahead are incredibly valuable. So here’s what I’m planning to cook for dinner this week:

Monday: Ground Beef Lo Mein made with grass-fed beef and venison and rice noodles

Tuesday: Potato Chicken Bake with fermented sauerkraut and homemade sourdough bread & butter on the side

Wednesday: Quinoa White Chicken Chili with Lime served with lime multigrain chips and queso fresco

Thursday: Puerto Rican Beef from Everyday Paleo

Friday:  Pollock coated in raw egg,  lightly breaded with homemade sourdough bread crumbs, and fried in coconut oil. We made this two weeks ago and it was a huge hit. Serve with steamed broccoli and a rice pilaf.

Saturday:  Homemade pizzas with homemade sourdough crusts and an array of pick-your-own toppings (kids’ favorite night!) Last week, mine was super thin crust with kale, red onions, black olives and feta. So good!

Sunday:  Grilled grass-fed beef roast or steaks, stuffed baked potatoes and steamed organic veggies

I’m linking up this week with Organizing Junkie for the weekly menu planning post — a great place to browse recipes from around the web.

What’s cooking at your home this week?

  1. Thomas Jefferson grew artichokes in northern Virginia, so I know if he could do it in the 1700s, I can do it now. I started mine under lights in my basement last Frebruary 10, 2013 in zone 7, Northern VA. I transplanted them into the raised bed shown in early May. The plants got about 2 feet high and 2 feet wide in their first year? I am trying to overwinter the artichoke plants by covering them with leaves and then with a tub? It’s too soon to know if it worked. I checked them on April 6 when I removed their cover and leaf insulation, but it is too early to tell if they survived the harsh winter. I did not get any blooms the first year. If the very cold winter killed them, I am trying again this year, but I will protect them better during the winter. If the winter killed them, I plan to cut the next ones back to 8 inches, cover with leaves, then cover with a carbboard box and then a plastic cover.
