Menu Plan, May 14-20
I'm very excited--after waiting a few weeks for processing, this should be our last week skimping on beef. I believe we'll get to pick up our 1/4 cow (which we are splitting with Ben's brothers who share a house) early next week, just in time for my parents to arrive and enjoy some grass-fed steaks with us!
Ben also seems to be doing fine with corn (though we do have another week of "testing"), so that leaves just soy and peanuts to test. He's not in a big hurry to add either of those, but it will be interesting to see how they work out anyway. It's so much easier just being gluten, soy, and peanut free than it was taking out gluten, soy, corn, eggs, dairy, and peanuts!
Since we always have smoothies or leftovers for lunch, I'm going to stop posting our lunch "menu." Here's what I have on the menu this week:
Flourless oatmeal pancakes (x2)
Hashbrowns, scrambled eggs, fruit (x2)
Baked oatmeal (x2)
Breakfast casserole (with turkey bacon and spinach as add-ins), fruit
Bunless cheeseburgers, salad
Not-sagna Pasta Toss, salad
Peppered beef shank in red wine, polenta, salad (I hope I actually get around to this one this week!)
Cheesy White Chicken Chili from The Everything Beans Book (This is an affiliate link. Thank you for supporting this site!)
Rice and beans with all the fixings, fruit
Breakfast casserole, fruit (breakfast for dinner Saturday night so we can eat the leftovers Sunday morning)
Baked nachos, carrot sticks (bringing this to a fellowship meal Sunday)
