    Hello, menu sharing peeps! It’s in the 20s and 30s here today, and will get up to the hi 50s later in the week. “Oy, the weather!” – from The Lion King.

    Anyway, I have some yummy comfort foods on my menu this week, some of which are also fast fixin’. Not so much a crazy week (oh, NOW I’ve jinxed it!), but I want to take it easier before the holiday season kicks in — in just a week and a half!!! Also, I’ve planned the meals for the opportunity for me to take less starches. Here’s what’s on our menu this week.

    Sunday: Meatloaf from the freezer (~$3), mashed potatoes (.50), carrots (.45), canned fruit cocktail (.91). The boys did not like the fruit with dinner — tough.

    Monday: Crock Pot Rotisserie Chicken (~$4), biscuits, green beans, canned pears (.91).

    Tuesday: Pan grilled pork chops (1.77/#), peas (.45), noodles with cream sauce.

    Wednesday: Grilled beef patties ($2.10), cornbread, slaw, sliced apples.

    Thursday: Light and Creamy Chicken (leftover) Enchiladas (from Holly Clegg cookbook), leftover rice for the guys, green salads.

    Friday: Cream of tomato soup (my boys decided they like it with milk), grilled cheese and bacon sandwiches, salad for me.

    Saturday: I had stuffed chicken planned, but now suddenly realize ain’t no one home for dinner that night! Two camping, one working, and one out. Surprise!

    These meals for four will cost me about $23.00. I recently got Eat What You Love from the library, and tagged nearly every recipe — so I put it on my Christmas wish list! Does anyone else love this cookbook? I’m amazed at the amount of sugar and fat in most conventional recipes — yikes.

    Now, Mickey, I only have two words: Oh, my!

    Hello long lost menu pals!

    I've been doing some vague planning for a few weeks and am now working on being a bit more disciplined because it truly is easier this way. I am back to work but only 20 hrs/week for the moment. Our daughter is now 11 weeks old, and we are adjusting to our new normal. She seems to be doing the same.

    I have definitely appreciated my earlier efforts in stocking the freezer pre-baby. The only downside has been that my daughter seems to have some (probably transient) sensitivity to dairy in my diet, so I have some things like lasagnas that we can't enjoy just yet. But probably we can have them in another few months. So where cheese and dairy show up in my menus, DH gets the real thing and I am either skipping it or using some alternative. "Creamy" grits made with almond milk are not bad at all!

    Sat – chicken with greens and honey dijony sauce over noodles
    Sun – burgers on the grill, polenta fries, broccoli
    Mon – made up soup with pintos (half mashed), onion, green pepper
    Tue – salmon melts with leftover bread and old tortillas; green beans
    Wed – chicken stirfry with maybe red pepper and broccoli and toasted almonds over brown rice (using jarred black bean sauce from Asian market
    Thu – frozen fish over pasta with olive/caper/tomato sauce
    Fri – “Taste of Peru” night: Back in the early summer, we had beef heart at a Peruvian restaurant while visiting in another city, and it was amazing. Last weekend we enjoyed Chinese hot pot with ‘our’ Taiwanese students and friends, and I wanted to do something culinarily interesting for them, because some of them are very interested in cooking of all sorts. So I found the recipe (Peruvian Anticuchos) and it is obviously not that hard. And this past weekend, after a bit of searching, I found a local beef farmer who sells beef heart – apparently lots of people are missing out on it. They even said at Whole Foods and the Organic Butcher that they were unlikely to be able to get it. But I was lucky and found some – for a whopping $3.25/pound! So then I thought we could have another typically Peruvian recipe, for causa ( http://southamericanfood.about.com/od/fusionfare/r/causa.htm; which I learned about through research but have not tried yet). But I will make it with tuna because I gather it is more traditional (from some sites that don’t provide quantities with the recipe). So anyway, it’s probably a bit ambitious, but we are doing it on a Friday and I will have the morning with the baby at the sitter’s to do most of the prep. It should be fun!!

    I hope to be back again next week, although we may be traveling so it could be late again. Better than never!

    11 weeks!!! Wow time flies!!!!
    Peruvian food sounds wonderful! I used to eat beef heart a lot when I was on a certain diet. I never had trouble finding it, but that was 25 years ago.
