Menu Plan for Mid May

ScreenshotI know I’m mostly just posted menu plans lately but, I’ll be honest, it’s more for me than you. That sounds kind of selfish. I would really love to post other things, but it’s just a busy season for me right now. And posting the menus makes it insanely easy for me to actually find my recipes during the week to make them.

Also, I thought I’d add that I don’t generally use ingredients exactly as called for in recipes. For instance, I NEVER use reduced fat, low fat, fat free ANYTHING. For one thing, they taste disgusting. For another thing, full fat is good for you. No really. I was going to link to some articles, but just Google it. You’ll find a ton of stuff. There are books, too. Also, I don’t use processed anything generally. I make my own versions (like cream of soups, pasta sauce, etc.) I do still buy cheese, milk, butter, sour cream and yogurt and some bread products because I’m not there yet (but would like to be!) Occasionally, crackers and tortilla chips sneak in, too (how do that happen? ;)) but we do try to avoid processed foods as much as possible. We don’t use vegetable oils, either. Those are BAD news. We use coconut oil and olive oil. Olive oil is not good in high heat so I don’t cook with olive oil for the most part but coconut oil can literally take the heat. And, of course, I make substitutions for personal family preferences and to make use of what’s on hand.

Okay, that was a long intro. Here’s what we are eating for the week. Maybe it will inspire your menu this week, or perhaps not. Either way, I find it helpful for me and hope your eats this week are delicious!
