Menu Plan, Week of 10/27



Are you a baseball fan? I am, and what’s more, I am a Cardinals fan, and this World Series is killing me. The Cards have been so great all season, this series is not going the way it should! Of course, the Red Sox are pretty good, too, and these are hard fought games, so I can’t get too upset, I guess.

All of this baseball is cutting into my cooking and planning time. I guess the benefit of posting my menus late is that I know at least some of it is absolutely right. We usually eat pretty much what is on the menu, although we switch nights a lot, but sometimes things just change. It is still good to plan, though–it keeps me in the mindset of eating at home.

Sunday: Dinner at my dad’s (burgers with tomatoes, onions, avocado, broccoli)

Monday: At a friend’s house to watch the game

Tuesday: Beef and eggplant skillet

Wednesday: Bratwurst, buttered broccoli and cauliflower, sauteed kale with mushrooms and bacon

Thursday: Slow cooker pork roast (without the carrots, with cabbage), spaghetti squash with garlic butter

Friday: Salmon casserole with cauliflower and green beans

Saturday: leftovers

Menu, Week of 5/13


I have to admit: the low-carb stuff is seeming a bit boring to me. I am tired of eggs and bacon for breakfast. I am a little bored with salads for lunch. I miss the variety of high-carb foods out there.

This week I am aiming to add more low-carb veggies to the mix to make things a bit more interesting. I am doing tuna salad stuffed tomatoes for lunch to have something different.Even though it is getting more summery here, I think I’ll add some soups to the mix, too.

Sunday: BBQ at my parents’ house

Monday: Cinnamon and Chicken Stew with artichoke hearts and spinach subbed for the chickpeas (maybe some mushrooms added, too, because I love them even if no one else does), quinoa for the family, fried cabbage and bacon

Tuesday: Sausage and Eggplant Stew, cooked on the stovetop instead of the crockpot

Wednesday: Korean Beef (made with ground turkey, because that is what I have on hand, and probably Truvia instead of the brown sugar), cauli-rice, green beans

Thursday: bratwurst, broccoli, fries for the kids, sauteed mushrooms for me

Friday: Eggplant and Mushroom Curry, leftover cauli-rice, maybe some Indian spiced chicken

All I will need to buy this week is Italian sausage and maybe a bit of bacon and eggs and some green beans, so not a bad plan!

Anyone else doing low-carb? What do you do for breakfast and lunch. It has been all bacon and eggs for breakfast and big salads for lunch here. That sounded so exciting, especially with full fat salad dressing, but I am bored, bored, bored.
