One Week of Low Carb Meals || Week 42

 

menuplanmondayweek42I am in a total rut.  I seem to be making the same stuff over and over.  This week I am trying a bunch of new recipes!

THIS WEEK’S MEALS:

MEAL ONE:

One thing that really drives me crazy is not being able to eat Chinese food…I can handle eating a main dish without the rice, but I seriously miss egg rolls and spring rolls.  Look at this recipe! “Eggroll in a Bowl” from Mostly Homemade Mom. Trying it!

MEAL TWO:

Italian food is something else that can cause a problem!  I am going to make this Meatball Parm Casserole from Joy Filled Eats with a salad for all of us and pasta for the guys!

MEAL FOUR:

In the spirit of Octoberfest, we have to have a Kielbasa and Cabbage Skillet from Belly Full.  Plus I have kielbasa in the fridge.

I also have a whole chicken in the freezer, so I will be making my own recipe for roast chicken:

MEAL SIX:

I seem to make NY Strips at least one time a week. I use the same method for pork steaks and chops.

MEAL SEVEN:

…and yes, steak again.  The boys will love this with rice, and then a green veggies for all of us.

MY MEAL PLANNING PROCESS:

I have my own weird system for menu planning. Most people decide what they want to cook for the week, and then go out and buy what they need for those recipes.  I do it backwards.

STEP ONE:  I go through my freezer, refrigerator, and pantry and write down what I have on hand.

STEP TWO: I go through my “inventory” and start writing down meals based on what I already have.  I tend to just write down the entree, and decide on vegetables/salads/sides on the day I cook. I also write down more than I will need, and write down extra stuff to prep, like jello, deviled eggs, a bag of salad mix…I designate “meal 1, meal 2, meal 3…” rather than “Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday…” because I never know what I am going to be in the mood for!

STEP THREE: When I finalize my grocery list I go through my basic pantry list and see what I am out of, I buy what meat is on sale to stock my freezer, and I buy the produce that I think looks good.
