Life has been happening lately.

I’ve been following my latest two menu plans, but haven’t had time to share them and link them up- until today!

So instead of a 15 or 16 day menu plan, I’ve combined them to make a 30 day menu plan!

My Thanksgiving post is still in the works, so I’ll have that up soon- I hope!

Randomness from last menu: I never tried the fish like I planned to last time. I chickened out. PLUS, I couldn’t find a tilapia that seemed to be safe. What brands do y’all use? Please and thank you!

This menu has chicken, turkey, pork and meatless meals. I’m starting to really enjoy our meatless meals. I’d love to eat more veggies and less meat. We shall see…

Homemade Ranch Dry Mix

Homemade Ranch Dressing
(For Dressing, use the above Ranch Dry Mix link and use Just Mayo or other vegan mayo & sub non-dairy milk. I use SO Delicious Original Coconut Coffee Creamer. It’s very neutral in taste and the ranch flavor shines through.)

Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup

Homemade Taco Mix

Also, you may be wondering why on Black Friday we are having safe ice cream for dinner. It is SG’s birthday and I told her she can have whatever she wants for dinner- even ice cream. So of course, that’s what she chose! I’m guessing the Huzz and I will gorge on Thanksgiving leftovers, anyway. You only turn 4 once- may as well live it up! 🙂

15 Days of Dairy & Egg Free Dinners: Part 4

My menu plans are always my ideal and what I strive for. But let’s be real… sometimes I don’t have the energy or the desire to cook. That’s why I depend on my homemade freezer pizzas and flex meals to get me through some days.

Here’s my latest 15 day menu plan. I’m already behind my schedule because it’s day three and I haven’t used this menu yet! Oh well.

I shall try my best to stick to this plan.

Here’s my menu plan for the first half of October:

1. Sweet & Sour Chicken (Sub 3-4 flax eggs), White Rice & Steam in a Bag Broccoli

2. Baked Tilapia, Sautéed Spinach & Sautéed Zucchini

3. Tomato Herb Soup & Homemade Bread

4. Ranch Turkey Burgers (Use 2 Tbs. of this homemade ranch seasoning), French Fries & Grilled Asparagus

5. Taco Crescents & Steam in a Bag Broccoli

6. Pineapple Fried Rice

7. Veggie Pizza

8. Smothered Italian Chicken  (Sub Daiya for the Mozzarella & Omit Parm) & Noodles

9. San Francisco Chops, Rice & Sautéed Zucchini

10. Coconut Vegetable Curry Soup

11. Healthy Turkey Meatballs, Baked Potatoes & Roasted Carrots

12. Sticky Chicken, Vegan Mashed Potatoes & Green Beans

13. Mojo Pork Tenderloin, Rice & Beans

14. Mojo Pork Burrito Bowls

15. Flex Meal

Did you notice I included a recipe with fish??? That’s major!

If you have any easy and yummy fish recipes, please share! I’m in desperate need of some. The easier the recipe, the better.  😃

Sweet & Sour Chicken

 

I don't use ground beef anymore.  I use chicken.  Ground turkey or black beans would work well as the protein, too.

16 Days of Dairy & Egg Free Dinners (July 16- July 31, 2014)

Hey y’all. Thanks for stopping back by. I’m still hard at work creating two week menus for my little family. I hope these meal ideas are a blessing for you, too.

There are a few repeats because I got a little off track last week. Hy-Vee had a great sale (88 cents a pound for drumsticks!) so we enjoyed some of those and froze the extra cooked meat. (Click here to read how I do that.)

Anyway, we are back on track.

Do you see how delicious this Sweet & Sour Chicken looks? Man, it was scrumptious! I used flax eggs and it worked perfectly!

Tonight we are enjoying this pizza.  The Huzz declared this last pizza was the BEST pizza I’ve ever made.  I think it’s due to this new pizza pan with the little holes.  It must be the holes that allowed for such a great crispy crust.  Hooray!
