Last year I sat down to do a whole 30 or whatever, just trying to get a month's worth of healthy paleo/LC meals. One look and I about fainted. Virtually every meal had cheese. What????? So much cheese, so much $$$. Started working on a dairy-free, cheese-free menu just to see if we could it. We did it. I just kept walking by the cheese bar and worked my menus from week to week. Sixteen months later we only have mozzarella cheese on occasion, Parmesan from time to time and goat cheese whenever we want We were able to work around it and lost about 10 lbs. right off the bat. Coconut milk for creamer, thickener. I keep cottage cheese for emergencies (where is that ricotta?) and for hubby's eggs and such. It was just not as hard as I thought it would be--and we eat TexMex. Yes, for the first several weeks it was work, but there are so many good alternatives on the market, that after a while I did not even think about it
So far I'm doing it, but sometimes I just want to make a big old cheesy casserole BUT I am so happy that my DD is not having horrible stomach pain anymore that it is worth it to keep on searching for great recipes. I also think that cutting back on the cheese is helping my weight loss along nicely.

Salisbury steak, well this is how I made it. You can do it in a crock pot also, there are lots of recipies for it.

I used 4lbs of burger and added dried minced onion, onion powder, salt, pepper, beef bullion, worchestershire, and 2 eggs.

While mixing and forming the meat I cooked onion and mushroom in butter and a bit of oil till brown. Then added 2 packs of brown gravy mix and a little extra water than the directions called for so its more saucy. Take that out of the pan and fry your patties in it. After they are all fried (don't have to be cooked all the way through just nicely brown) stack them in the dutch oven and pour mix over the patties. Cover and cook in oven about a half hour.


Chicken Cordon Bleu casserole - this is what I made because i am lazy and its getting chopped up anyway

I did not use the rice in the bottom, did make it on the side for the rest of the fams. Also 2 cans or soup is overkill! Just use 1

Hi DoxieLove! I'm glad you like the thread. Feel free to join in any time.

Here's a post I recently made on salisbury steak http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...l#post16191046

My chicken cordon bleu is not the traditional rolled kind. The actual recipe is called "Mayonnaise Lover's Chicken" (don't let that name fool you) and it can be found over at Taste of Home's website.

Here's February February 2013
And I screwed up and forgot to put "weekly dinner menus" in the thread title? And you want to know why? Because I was so focused on spelling FEBRUARY correctly I totally spaced it!
