Standard

January is always a bit of a downtime for me. Maybe it is because I run around like a crazy person before Christmas. Gee, you think? Hopefully I will do better this year, starting projects early, but it always seems there are plenty of projects coming up throughout the year.

This past week I have been busy with work and the kids, but we mostly ate at home. On Wednesday, I got home to find that there was a school program for my youngest starting at 6:00 and lasting until 7:30. It was 5:45 at the time, so we ended up picking something up after the event. Other than that, though, I cooked, so it worked out pretty well.

This week I am planning on getting more done besides work and dinner. I am cooking some extra food for a friend who had surgery last week. I want to do one Christmas project (yet to be determined, but probably something small). I want to finish the Creeper blanket I am crocheting for one of my son’s friends. I would like to do more, but I had better stop if I want to actually make my goals, ;).

Sunday: Cheeseburgers

Monday: Fathead pizza

Tuesday: Sauteed scallops and langostinos, sauteed cabbage (both sauteed in butter)

Wednesday: Paleo chicken taco bowls – the kids may eat the food separately, but I will enjoy it all together!

Thursday: Morroccan egg tagine, buttered broccoli

Friday: Spinach and goat cheese stuffed chicken, green beans sauteed with bacon, sauteed artichoke hearts

Saturday: Steak, cauli-rice, roasted asparagus and cherry tomatoes

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.
