March 2012 Weekly Dinner Menus

Each week I pick out 6 things to make for dinner (one night is what we call FFY, or fend for yourself, night). This weekly menu becomes the base for the shopping list. Shopping is usually on Sundays, so Monday starts my "menu week".
I start these menu threads every week and month so I have a record of what I fixed and to share to help others perform this sometimes tedious task. I have been doing this since June 2010 and as far as I know, all of the threads are still in this forum if you just go back far enough or search for them, you can find them.
Please share your weekly menus here, too, and post or ask for recipes related to your menus. We are no longer allowed to post links to recipes on outside websites, but if it's here on LCF, please link to it. You may also list the recipe title exactly and say it's from "such and such website", or "so and so's blog".


~~~~~~~~~~
Week of Feb. 27-Mar. 4
MON: Grilled chicken salad
TUE: FFY
WED: Baked pork chops and salad
THU: Paleo Sweet and Sour meatballs (from the lateral eating blog - actual title is "My mum’s sweet and sour meatballs with a twist") and sauteed shredded cabbage
FRI: Grilled steak and salad
SAT: Chicken parmigiana (from my "Joy of Cooking" cookbook) and green beans
SUN: Peppery Roast Beef (from Taste of Home)

I didn't care for that lasagna I made last week. It was too salty and too cheesy (but not in a good way). More as in the way where the cheese "noodles" were just not great in it and gave it a weird texture... so I was pretty bummed after putting SO much work into it for that kind of end result. I MUCH prefer the Spinach Lasagna from LS's site. Glad you liked it Speck!!

Karen, bummer about the lasagna. We've all been there though. Lots of $$ in ingredients, lots of time in prep, for bleh or meh results.

Pcaltman, you don't look old enough to have an 18 year old! Happy birthday to him.

Kristan, the paleo sweet and sour meatballs were good! My DH gobbled them up and said they were "better than OK" which is high praise coming from him! LOL! I did spice up the meatballs more than what the recipe said and did not use the bacon. And I used splenda instead of honey in the sauce, and I used corn starch instead of arrowroot powder to thicken the sauce. I served them over stir fried cabbage.
The use of coconut flour in the meatballs is a really good idea. No, it doesn't make them taste coconutty. The highly absorbent coconut flour really holds the fat in the meatballs and helps them from becoming too dense.

Sat. 3/10: BBQ Beef Brisket (Linda Sue's) + Spinach Pie
Sun. 3/11: Mexicali Spaghetti Squash Casserole
Verdict on the African Chicken...interesting flavor...the kids and I liked it...DH wasn't ecstatic but didn't totally hate it. The Pork Lasagna Florentine was good...I think it needed more sauce, but only bc I added Dreamsfield noodles so I should have thought of that. Mustard chicken was good, as all the ones I try are and was simple to make. The Italian Broccoli was weird, I didn't have cottage cheese (never do) so I subbed w/ricotta and it just didn't mesh as I'd like so I'd like to make it again, but maybe with cream cheese instead. And as far as the No Noodle Lasagna goes...Idk if I am doing something wrong but everytime I make this it turns watery...good flavor, I especially like the blend of sweetness in the zucchini with the other ingredients but I have no idea why mine keeps turning out this way.

I know my kids and DH are going to cry about the sirloin w/onion and peppers, they all hate onions and peppers...maybe I will leave it off of theirs. I decided not to get a brisket bc I had already spent a buttload of money at Costco and was not willing to pay $30 for a brisket so I need to come up with an alternate dish for Saturday.

Hope everyone is having a great week.

It's hard to say. I had a small piece of ham for dinner last night and am up in weight today, but I think that's either because I had a small roll at a party yesterday afternoon (you know how they make little sandwiches out of them on party trays), or, more likely, because I drank several diet sodas last night. I have noticed that makes me retain water. The piece of ham I had last night was very small, I can't imagine it was enough to make me retain this much water. A few times a year when I have a large ham dinner, like Easter, I eat a lot of ham, but also eat a lot of food in general, and so of course gain the next day, but always chalked it up to all the food, not the ham specifically. So, really, I don't know, maybe. lol

Karen, what are the spices for the African chicken? The zucchini lets go of a lot of water if you are using it as "noodles" in the lasagna. You might try lightly salting the cut zucchini and laying out on a towel to get some of the water out before using it.

We had the Indian Butter Chicken tonight, and man, was it good! DH and loved it, DS wouldn't even try it and DD only ate one small chunk. Their loss. Made me long for basmati rice to soak of the sauce, though.

I'll have to remember that tip next time for the zucchini.

The West African Chicken is from Kalyn's Kitchen:
Ingredients:
1-2 T olive or canola oil (the recipe called for 2 T, but I think you could use less)
1/4 cup finely diced red onion (could also use regular onion)
1 T finely minced ginger root (I wouldn't use ginger from a jar for this dish)
2 tsp. finely minced jalapeno (I used pickled jalapenos which worked fine. Increase if you want it spicy.)
salt to taste (I used about 1/2 tsp. sea salt)
1 tsp. chile powder
1 cup chicken stock (chicken broth from a can is fine)
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter (use natural peanut butter without added sugar for South Beach Diet)
2 T tomato paste
1 T cider vinegar
3 cups diced, cooked chicken (use white meat or carefully remove fat from dark meat for South Beach Diet)
fresh ground black pepper to taste
3-4 green onions (scallions) thinly sliced

Instructions:
Finely chop the red onion, ginger, and jalapeno, and roughly chop the chicken. Heat oil in a heavy pan, add finely diced onion, ginger, and jalapenos, season with salt, and saute about 2 minutes. Add the chile powder, stir into other ingredients, and saute about 1 minute more.

Add chicken stock, peanut butter, tomato paste, and apple cider vinegar, stir, and bring to a slight boil. As soon as it starts to boil, lower heat to a very gentle simmer, add roughly chopped chicken, gently stir to combine, and let simmer 10-15 minutes. (Resist the urge to stir it very much, or the chicken will shred apart, which you don't want here.)

While mixture simmers, wash, dry, and slice green onions. After 10-15 minutes, gently stir again if the oil from the peanut butter has separated. Serve hot, with a generous handful of green onion slices on each serving.

I think so. I used reg onions instead of red and I don't ever have ginger root so I went against the recommendation and used the ground ginger from a container anyways. I also used the pickled jalapenos instead of the fresh ones and didn't have fresh green onions but had the freeze dried from a container. I put this in a wrap, think it would be good over cauli rice also.

Week of 3/12- 3/18

So, I purchased a cookbook, which was available as a pdf, it's from the 24/7 Low Carb Diner blog. The items in bold are from that cookbook and I am pretty sure I am unable to give out the recipes to them directly so I just wanted to give a heads up. It's $10 and has 157 pgs.

Mon. 3/12: Teriyaki Pork + Chinese Fried Cauli "Rice" (Linda Sue's)
Tues. 3/13: Exotic Chicken Wraps + Bacony Broccoli Salad
Wed. 3/14: Slow Texas Beef + Parmesan Encrusted Zucchini
Thurs. 3/15: Meatballs Roma over Dreamsfield Noodles
Fri. 3/16: Crispy Orange Pork + Cauli Garlic "Rice" (both from Linda Sue's site...going to attempt making the orange chicken crispy)
Sat. 3/17: Mama Mia Chicken Bake
Sun. 3/18: Taco Pizza

WOE: Semi-Primal
Week of March 19-25

MON: Steak and spinach (and bacon and parmesan) pinwheels/raw veg and ranch dip
TUE: Grilled chicken salads
WED: Ruben casserole
THU: Baked pork chops/green beans
FRI: Crock pot stuffed peppers
SAT: Grilled steak and green salad
SUN: Whole roasted chicken/mashed cauliflower (I got a sample from the LC Foods Corp. that's supposed to make mashed cauli taste more like potatoes. I'll let you know how it goes).

BTW does anyone have experience with once a month cooking? I'm thinking about doing this for next month.
