Menu, Week of 10/31

Standard

Monday: Pork Tenderloin with Artichokes and Capers, mashed potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts

This is my attempt to cram some nutrition into my kids before they head out for the candy-filled bacchanalia that is Halloween night.

Tuesday: Pumpkin and Shrimp Curry, brown rice/quinoa

My daughter likes shrimp, but my son doesn’t. My son likes curry, but my daughter doesn’t. I like all of the ingredients in this recipe. Overall, it is a better idea to have this on the night the kids are at their dad’s house.

Wednesday: Scallop risotto

The girl is cooking this night. I love it when she cooks!

Thursday: Salmon noodle casserole, broccoli

I am not really sure about this one. I am thinking about cutting out wheat for a bit to see if I might be having some issues with gluten. Although, if I cut it out all week, and I feel better, this might be a good test to see if wheat is the culprit.

I have a fair amount of salad stuff that I want to use for lunches. We are doing a lot of oatmeal for breakfasts, plus hash browns, sausage and eggs. I know, that sounds heavy, but we don’t do it all at once, and the sausage won’t be every day. I am trying to make sure we get a good filling breakfast to start the day, though.

    • It is great. We have risotto a lot because I find it relaxing to make, plus my kids will eat almost anything if I put it in risotto. Even mushrooms and asparagus. They aren’t fans of fried rice, butthey eat risotto up!
