Meal Plans Week of 6-9-13

Rah, rah, rah…it’s cheerleading week! Rebecca has cheerleading camp all week. I’m excited for her 🙂  This week will be a bit busier than last week. Father’s Day is almost here…ummm…time to shop. We also have our weekly trip to the farmer’s market, a trip to the grocery store, and I have a MomBreak steering team meeting (first one!).

I have quite a few kitchen projects on the agenda this week. I need to use the rhubarb I bought last week. I’m thinking I’ll probably do a crisp with it. I need to make a batch of soaked rice bars and coconut flour scones. I need to make some breakfast baked good. And I need to bake the cake for my BIL’s wedding. I could also try making veggie broth and coconut milk if time allows.


I tried to take it pretty easy last week. I took a nap almost every day. I was in the sun as much as possible. And I went to bed on time every night. My neighbors must think I’m lazy and just lounge in the sun all day 😛  But I really am doing hard work trying to heal my body. And it seems to be helping. My body temp has been in the 98’s all week!!! Yes, my weight is higher than it’s been in about 9 years (excluding pregnancy). But that’s life. I spent lots of time playing and reading with my kids. And we went to a baseball game last night. I’m doing my best to stay focused on what matters and being healthy.

Can’t have baseball without hot dogs…so we brought our own organic grass-fed dogs on gluten free buns…shhh, don’t tell 😉

Here is the weekly menu. I had a hard time coming up with meals this week. I think it’s time to do some browsing and find new recipes to try. I’m getting bored with our usual meals.

“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” Ephesians 3:17 – 18

    Enjoy your week! Hope you get more naps and lounging in the sun! Your meals sound good, as usual, too.

    We’re having chicken stir fry, a picnic at the softball game, random leftovers Tuesday while I am at a Pampered Chef party, grilled pork souvlaki with stuffed grape leaves, chicken noodle soup (Carson wants it again), grilled salmon, and tacos (Bristol’s new favorite).

    Your meals sound good, too, Sara! Funny that Carson wants soup. Maybe his body needs the broth 🙂 We are out of salmon 🙁 I need to get to Heffron. I wish we had a good source for fish…and that it wasn’t so expensive!!

    That’s what I am thinking, too. I made a batch of chicken bone broth yesterday/last night/this morning that I need to strain and put in jars. I have more chicken carcasses in the fridge for another batch that I will start a little later. I’m going to use broth in as much as possible this week to feed Carson’s body (and the rest of ours, too) what it needs. I can use it in the stir fry, the grape leaves, the soup, and the tacos… And maybe in other sides, as well. 🙂
