Monday: Cincinnati Chili from Well Fed/Mel Joulwan. She is my go to person for paleo recipes. I usually make her Chocolate Chili but saw she had another recipe and I want to try it out. We will eat this with either zucchini noodles and/or baked sweet potatoes.
Tuesday: Cracklin Chicken from Nom Nom Paleo. My kids LOVE this chicken. It makes a mess so get a splatter guard. I like to eat the left overs over a salad for lunches. I will do some baked potato wedges and steamed broccoli with this. (There is controversy over whether white potatoes are really paleo. Because they are acceptable for Whole 30, I think they are just fine for us.)
Wednesday: Meatza again from Well Fed. When I first saw this recipe I wrinkled my nose at it. I could not imagine it would be good, but Scott and I were in a full blown “Whole 30” and I was up for trying any recipe if it followed the rules of the plan. We were surprised when we realized IT WAS GOOD. I will grab a couple of Biboli pizza crusts for the boys to make their own pizzas.
Thursday: Last week I said I was going to make some kind of fish on Thursday. I ran by the grocery store to see what was on sale and there really was not any that was a deal. Pork loins were on sale so I bought that and baked it with some potato wedges. It was so EASY. So I think knowing that I have 3 meals planned, maybe I will fly by the seat of my pants again this week. Tentatively, we will be having some kind of fish.
Friday: Whomever wins our football picks for the week chooses our Friday night meal… #2 won and is threatening McDonald’s. This won’t happen. He has much more sophisticated pallet than that.
What’s on your menu for the week?
