July 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 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".

Here's what we were making last year at this time: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...ner-menus.html

Kim, what happened to you!? Yes, I am still semi-Primal. Been sick the last week, so giving into comfort foods like low carb tortillas, and my fitness routine has been sacked. But I'll get back on track this week. How do you make your paleo potato salad? Did you see the recipe for the purple Okinawa potato salad on MDA yesterday? That looks interesting, and I want to try it!!

Karen, have a good time in San Diego! It's bee ages since we've been to the zoo. We went to Sea World last summer, and it was cool! But so expensive!

New and excited to share ideas

I love the wide range of menu ideas, so instead of just reading them, I'll add mine to the mix.

Monday - Crockpot chili meat w/ lettuce, cheese, sour cream (terrible!)
Tuesday - Broccoli cheddar soup w/bacon
Wednesday - Grilled steak, roasted tomatoes and asparagus
Thursday - BBQ chicken, cauliflower salad
Friday - Stir fry veggies and beef
Saturday - Cioppino with fresh local seafood
Sunday - Chicken wings, celery sticks and baked poppers

This eating style is new to my husband and me. We've cleared out the kitchen of high carb foods and taken them to the local food bank.

Let me know how this menu looks, especially if I'm off track. Thanks!

There were some epic failures on the taste of many of my recipes last week. Over salting, weird textures,etc.
Here's my second attempt:
Monday - chilled shrimp on salad
Tuesday - meatloaf, cauliflower salad
Wednesday - grilled pork chops, summer squash
Thursday- chicken salad made w/store bought rotisserie chicken
Friday - salmon, Thai green beans
Saturday - Dinner at Brazilian steakhouse
Sunday - roast chicken, cucumber salad

That's it. I like knowing what to cook each day, and we have any leftovers for lunch at work.

Me, too, Dani. I don't know how people cope without a menu plan for dinner. I really can't relate to having to go to the store every day or eat out every night. But, to each his or her own!

WED: Meatloaf
THU: Grilled steak/broccoli cheddar salad
FRI: Grilled Salmon

SUN: Slow cooked carnitas

JULY 30-AUGUST 5
MON: Chicken with orange sauce
TUE: FFY
WED: Paleo sweet and sour meatballs/sauteed cabbage
THU: out
FRI: Talapia
SAT: Roast Beef
SUN: Grilled dijon pork chops

Sides were green salad where not otherwise noted.

And here's the new thread for August! August 2012 Weekly Dinner Menus
