Dinner this week – 3/18/24

March 18th, 2024 — 2:26pm

Chopped Italian Salad - salami and pepperoni, mozzarella, pepperoncini, red onion, chopped romaine lettuce, chickpeas, bell pepper, black olives, cherry tomatoes, vinaigrette.

Paleo Fish Tacos – I’ll make the slaw but will serve on Carbonaught tortillas. GF for me, regular for Josh.

Chicken Salad wraps – cold rotisserie chicken, apples, celery, red onion, bell pepper, and pecans. Mix half regular mayo, and half Truff mayo to taste. Add lots of pepper.

Eggroll in a bowl

Brisket! With Franklin BBQ beans, coleslaw and southern-style green beans. Best! (Brisket and beans from the Franklin BBQ book.) Coleslaw dressing – half mayo, half sour cream or dairy-free plain yogurt (I use Culina), apple cider vinegar, celery seeds, a little bit of sugar, salt and pepper.

Dinner this week – 3/4/24

March 4th, 2024 — 11:38am

White bean soup with ham and collard greens that I didn’t make last week

-this recipe exists in my head and I’ll try to write it up. It’s loosely based on this one, but I use dried beans and ham steak and make it in the instant pot.

Korean Beef Bowls
-we eat this with cauliflower rice and store-bought kimchee.

Carne Asada
-I have some pre-seasoned meat in the freezer. We’ll eat this with low carb tortillas, avocado and possibly some pinto beans I have frozen from a previous meal.

Greek Meatball Bowls
-I make Tzatziki dairy free with Culina plain coconut milk and it’s so good. I can’t get enough of it.

Chicken Shawarma
-I buy the NY Shuk Shawarma seasoning from Sprouts. Along with the red onions and parsley I’ll also chop up cherry tomatoes and cucumbers and toss them with a little preserved lemon paste, also from NY Shuk. It’s so good.

Always in the freezer for when we really don’t want to cook:
Low carb pizza crusts from Carbonat, low carb, gf chicken strips to eat with a salad

Dinner this week – 2/26/24

February 26th, 2024 — 1:49pm

The theme these days is what is super easy to make. Also, I’m trying to free up some space in the freezer so all of these are meals I can accomplish without going to the store. 

Salad with chicken and goat cheese 
-rotisserie chicken, goat cheese, apple slices, pecans, red onion, greens, some kind of homemade vinaigrette

Thai Basil Beef 
-subbing in ground beef because I’m lazy.

Mini Meatballs and pasta
-bless me for making a double batch of meatballs back in December and freezing half of it. We’ve been eating this pasta because it’s the best tasting low carb pasta I’ve found.

White bean soup with ham and collard greens
-this recipe exists in my head and I’ll try to write it up. It’s loosely based on this one, but I use dried beans and ham steak and make it in the instant pot.

Tacos
-standard ground beef tacos. Will use carbonaut tortillas to keep it low carb.
