Weekly Meal Plan 4 – 21DSD and Whole30 Compliant
Okay, so I’m a little behind on, well.. everything.
Ever have one of those weeks where everything kind of just happened at once? I had two major deadlines last week – one for my publishing career and one for my writing gig – and then my gym (which I also work for) was hosting a major two-day competition which literally kept me out of the house and going nonstop for two full days.
I ended that week out with friends, celebrating with these pretty ladies (and sundry other CFers) that I didn’t blow a gasket that weekend:
I may or may not have also had an Aunt Jemima. Yes, that’s bacon. And yes, it’s as amazing as you think it is:
Then we got right back on track on Sunday, planning our menu and doing all the shopping. This week will be full of overtime work late into the night but I promised myself I am turning off all contact with the electronic world (minus some Call of Duty Black Ops 2, natch) on December 23rd until my vacation ends. Like a total blackout, so don’t think I’m dead, mmmmkay?
I’m going to spend the holiday in front of a fire and tree with my babies that I am so thankful for. I have no interest in discussing the shootings because my fingers fail to type the words that breaks my heart into tiny pieces. But I have been sneaking into their rooms at night and collecting extra forehead kisses and sending a silent thank you out into the universe that I can do that and hurting for those that can’t.
It’s supposed to snow this week so hopefully I can avoid the hot cocoa/marshmallow/chocolate chip cookie symbiosis with snowman making and sledding.
So even though it’s Tuesday and we’ve already eaten into two of these days, here’s the menu we planned out:
B: Steak and eggs
L: leftover Moroccan pumpkin beef stew
D: burgers and green beans
B: Scotch eggs (with sausage, not breading)
L: baked ham, leftover slaw
D: pork loin with dijon apple glaze, roasted broccoli
B: Hard-boiled (HB) eggs, bacon
L: leftover pork, spinach salad
D: Meatballs and spaghetti squash
B: scrambled eggs, bacon, 1/2 sweet potato
L: leftover meatballs & squash
D: oven-fried Paleo fish sticks, sauteed greens and carrots
B/L: Red Robin (taking the kids to lunch and the movies)
D: homemade wings, drummies, and sweet potato fries
Brunch: Grain-Free Crepes made Savory with pulled chicken
Dinner: Likely more of the above as we laze around and cook for Christmas Eve all day
What’s on your plate for this week?
