There is just something about back to school.. Summer is over and it’s back to our routine. I would be remiss if I didn’t stick to my mission “home cooking made simple” The mission behind this website was taking back the family table; the vital importance of eating dinner as a family. So I felt inclined to make myself a 21 day menu and decided to share it with you. Everything is simple. You can take it or leave but I need a plan (and love to write lists) In our home we are mostly gluten free (and sadly some are dairy free) and focused on health and wellness. These are mostly all keto friendly, paleo & whole 30 approved with simple substitutions
Every morning we do eggs: omelettes, scrambled, egg muffins with a variety of meats & veggies .. you get the idea.
Lunch: We homeschool so I grill or bake a bunch of chicken for salads or make tuna. I buy assorted lettuces & veggies we like. So lunches are usually a salad with protein and fruit of choice. I keep fresh fruit on hand & veggies from locals farms. Or leftovers are an option.
Dinner: Cilantro Lime Chicken & grilled veggies, Italian Meatballs cooked in tomato sauce with spaghetti squash, Skillet or grilled turkey burgers with sweet potato fries & fresh veggies, Chicken & Broccoli Stir fry, Grilled Pork Chops, Tex Mex grilled Chicken salad, Baked Sausage & Peppers with & zucchini, Spanish baked chicken & rice, Foil Packet Dinner (individually made with chicken or sausage, potatoes & veggies), Pulled pork with vinegar slaw, Egg roll in a bowl, Tandoori Chicken thighs with pineapple rice, Grilled Steak salad with cilantro lime dressing, Skillet Chicken & Herbs with green beans, Taco Salad, Thai basil chicken stir fry, GF Meatloaf with baked potatoes & carrots, Zucchini Lasagna, Rosemary Lemon Roasted Chicken Pieces, Cider Braised Pork with sweet potatoes & Chicken fried “rice” (cauliflower).
*I turn leftover chicken into quesadillas or burger into hashes.
