What’s For Dinner?

Well it has been a crazy weekend and it was all I could do to get my act together for about 30 minutes to throw this menu together.  I shopped as quick as I could and now I’m back at home and plan on curling up on the couch with a book and watching trash television before it’s back to work tomorrow.

It may not be the world’s most creative menu (I stole some dishes from last week that we didn’t end up making due to impromptu plans) but sometimes you need an easy cut + paste menu to get you through the week, right?  Every meal doesn’t have to be a gourmet restaurant outing.

Anyway, here’s what’s going on our table — tell me what’s going on yours?


Lunch: Grilled Southwest Chicken Salads

Dinner: Cajun Shrimp w/ remoulade + Spinach Salad (stolen from last week)


Lunch: Chicken Chorizo w/ Peppers + Onions and Kale Chips

Dinner: Grilled Rib Eyes with Asparagus + Salad


Lunch: Paleo-ified Minestrone-esque Soup (I’m wishing for fall and loving the hyphen, can you tell?)

Dinner: Grilled Chili Rubbed Tri Tip Salad w/ Grilled Vegetables on top


Lunch: Ground Pork Chili

Dinner: Joe’s Special.  Have you ever heard of Joe’s Special? — because it is AMAZING!  (Note to self: blog this recipe soon!)


Lunch:  Minestrone Soup Leftovers — Maybe I should call it Italian Beef + Greens Soup, since that is more accurate

Dinner: Chicken with Shallots + Steamed Broccoli


Lunch:  Taco Salads  (it’s a big lettuce week around here again)

Dinner:  Leftovers/Mustgo/Out — TBD

    Your meals always sound soooo good!! I’m the only primal’er here so after I’m done cooking for my hubby & 4 kids, I go simple 99% of the time… :/ I should pick a few of your recipes to prepare ahead of time & get some variety in my life I think! 😉 Do you IF for bfast?

      Oh variety is a must! Maybe crockpot something delicious for yourself, then you won’t feel like you have to cook. 😉 I don’t always IF but sometimes I do, mostly out of laziness. haha Breakfast for me usually consists of one of a few things: bacon/egg muffins I make on the weekend, green smoothies, or leftovers. I am totally shameless about eating leftover dinner for breakfast. But with a house of 6 people, I bet you don’t have ton of leftover laying around, eh? lol

Some personal realizations occur when sitting under a red-tinted hood of heat and wearing enough foils to make contact with an alien mothership. Sure, you can get six weeks of color before growing roots plant you back in that salon chair; but you can also end up with brassy zebra stripes that bring back memories of ultra-glossy Lip Smackers and frosted cream eye shadow.
