The New What's on the Menu Monday
Well, as many of you remember, I use to do What's on the Menu Monday where I posted recipes each Monday and asked you to comment one as well. Recently, finding recipes has not been the hard part of cooking, what has been hard has been getting variety in what we eat. I tend to make the same things in an endless rotation. So I have decided to post our weekly menu each Monday (inasmuch as I can remember to). I would love to hear yours as well!
I started writing out the menu of what we were going to eat a couple years ago and it has made a TREMENDOUS difference in our grocery bill. It helps from over buying or under buying and having to return to the store for one annoying ingredient. I don't label which night we will eat what I just list out 6 meals, 4 hot breakfasts and some lunch varieties. The rest of the meals are filled in with left overs and cereal/cold type foods.
You will find that we eat a little different than most. Vernon has a pretty strict diet because of his health issues. He sticks to "Eating Right for Your Blood Type" and his blood time is A. Mine on the other hand, is O and that diet is complete opposite of A's. So we have finally found a great balanced. We get most of our protein from nuts and fish for Vernon's sake and we have very limited gluten for my sake.
So here goes for this week:
Shrimp Alfredo Linguine- made with brown rice pasta and homemade Alfredo sauce. (so easy)
Almond Parmesan Crusted Talapia, Brown and Wild Rice and Broccoli (also so easy)
Breakfast for Dinner: Omelets, Homefry Potatoes and Bacon (bacon is for me hehe!)
Mahi Mahi and Brown Rice with Feta
Cheese and Black Bean Enchiladas
Salmon and Baked Potatoes
Hope this gives you some ideas! I really need some ideas and would love to hear from you! If you are interested in any of these meals, let me know and I will try to tell you how I made them. I RARELY use a recipe I just kinda make it up based on other things I have made. I very rarely spend over 30 mins making food so most, if not all of these are easy and quick.
