Cooking around here has been very challenging lately.  We’re experimenting with all kinds of different diets to find out what’s causing David’s stomach problems so I never really know from one day to the next what I’ll be able to cook.  However, here’s what we had last week: 1- Spaghetti with meat sauce Steamed broccoli Garlic Bread (frozen)  2- Crispy Fish & Chips (NEW) Steamed … [Read more...]

Well, I went to the store without a list and menu plan – AGAIN.  I couldn’t figure out when to fit it in so when David asked me to go to Target for some odds and ends, I decided that was the perfect opportunity to pick up groceries for the week.  So I did.  At least I had a partial list! Here’s what I managed to come up with from the odds and ends I picked up: 1- Hot Tamale Casserole (NEW) … [Read more...]

Still cooking gluten free although we’re not sure that’s the answer we were looking for.  David’s also taking a break from all kinds of nuts this week which is killing him since he LOVES peanut butter.  But we’ll see what happens. 1- Stove Top Pork & Brown Rice (NEW) *  2- Salmon w/lemon pepper * Zucchini Pasta (NEW) *  3- Tacos * Cheese Dip *  4- Chicken w/Asparagus, Mushrooms … [Read more...]

Menu Plan

I normally cook between three to five meals a week but lately I’ve been cooking meals that don’t stretch as far or that David’s been taking in his lunch the next day.  So this week I have SIX meals on the menu.  Oh, and they’re pretty much gluten free. And just for kicks, at the end of this post, I’m including photos of my actual menu and my grocery list. 1- Foil-Packet Chicken Puttanesca … [Read more...]
