Happy St. Paddy’s Day to all you Irish folk out there! My son told me ON FRIDAY that he wanted to go to Chicago to see the green river TODAY. Needless to say, that’s in the works for next year. ;-)

Moving along to the menu plan… (more…)

Today I'm going to share the recipe for Italian Medallions... it's so easy!

I hosted my first Freezer Meal Workshop on Saturday and we all had a blast! Seriously, I can not wait to do this again. Although we’ve already eaten 3 of the meals, so at this rate I’m going to need to host one every other week!

The meals are so yummy with so much flavor! And the best part… my kids have all complimented the food. Win!

Here's one meal we made: Honey Balsamic Drumsticks. Puts a whole new meaning to finger licking good.

As I sit here looking out the window at nothing but white, I’m grateful that I do not have to take any kids to school today. Oy! If we get any more snow, the drifts at the end of my driveway will be so big that I won’t be able to see to get OUT of the driveway! I’ll be stuck here until spring! There is hope. I do see higher temperatures later this week. :-)

Onto the Menu Plan…

MONDAY – Crock Pot Coq au Vin with gf noodles, and bell pepper strips

TUESDAYLentil Soup with raw, cut veggies

WEDNESDAY – Tacos/Taco Salads

THURSDAY – Using up some chicken strips from the freezer, served with mashed potatoes & mixed veggies

FRIDAY – Homemade Pizza (Going to try making some pizza crust with my new Bread for Life Starter. We’re hoping that this will be able to replace some of our gluten free items. Will keep you posted as to our results.)

SATURDAY – Cheeseburger Soup (recipe to follow based on THIS recipe)

SUNDAYEasy Breakfast Casserole with Waffles (using Bread for Life Starter) & fruit

Here’s my CHEESEBURGER SOUP recipe:

1 lb ground beef

1 lb ground turkey

6 oz potatoes, peeled & diced

1 c chopped cauliflower

1 c chopped onions

1 c chopped celery

2 c chopped cabbage

1 c frozen green beans

1 c frozen peas

4 – 6 c water

1 can tomato sauce

1 c diced tomatoes, processed to break up tomato chunks

1 bay leaf

1/2 tsp each basil & thyme

salt & pepper to taste

1. Brown beef & turkey in dutch oven; drain fat.

2. While meat is browning chop veggies. (I love using my Progessive Fruit and Vegetable Chopper for this)

3. Add everything (except for frozen veggies) to the pot & bring to boiling. Reduce heat to low & simmer 1-4 hours.

4. Before serving remove your bay leaf & add your frozen veggies; let simmer for another 10 minutes or until they are tender.

4. Serve with shredded cheese, mustard, ketchup, pickle slices or whatever you like to put on your cheeseburgers.

This is now my kiddos’ favorite soup. :-)

Thank you so much for stopping by!

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks here. I was in a minor car accident about 2 weeks ago & the recovery is taking longer than I thought. Lots of resting & Chiropractor appointments. But, thankfully, I’m starting to feel better. My family has been very supportive & helpful through the whole thing, but I still feel a bit behind the eight ball. So I’m going to make this short & sweet! E meal & S meal recommendations are based on the book Trim Healthy Mama.

Monday – Baked Cod, Rice, & Broccoli
For E meal – Decrease butter to 2 tsp.
For S meal – No rice & lots of butter :-)

Tuesday – Tacos/Taco Salads
For E meal – Use ground turkey/chicken for the taco meat, no dairy or other fats, no taco shells or tortilla chips, add beans
For S meal – Use ground beef for taco meat, can use dairy but no beans, again no taco shells or chips

Wednesday – Italian Chicken, Green Beans, & Potatoes
This will have to be an S meal because the chicken is marinated in a no sugar added Italian Dressing. No potatoes & add butter or Italian Dressing to the green beans

Thursday – Black Bean Dump Soup
E meal

Friday – Beef Stir Fry with rice
S meal – Make sauce with coconut oil or butter, no sugar; no rice
E meal – use chicken, use only a small amount of oil/butter, small amount of rice

Saturday – Hamburgers, Corn & Salad
S meal – No bun or corn, good olive oil dressing on the salad
E meal – Turkey burger, use egg white to bind the turkey together, corn or plan approved bun

Sunday – Sloppy Joes, corn, green beans
S meal – use ground beef, no sugar added sloppy joe sauce, no corn, use butter/oil on the green beans
E meal – use ground chicken/turkey, no sugar added sloppy joe sauce, small amount of corn, no oil/butter on the green beans

If you need to add a little more to your meal, you can always add a FP like 0% fat Greek Yogurt with a handful of berries & sweetened with stevia
For S meals you can add a Muffin in a mug like THIS or THIS.

I'm working on a recipe for Pepperoni Cheese Bread in a Mug that I hope to post for you soon!

Head on over to Gwen's nest for more Trim Healthy recipes. :-D

Head on over to Gwen’s Nest for more Trim Healthy recipes. :-D

It all started with Gingerbread Friends by Jan Brett.

We borrowed it from the library, which lead us to a fun sensory experience.

And since there’s a recipe in the book for Gingerbread cookies, we ended up making Gluten Free Ginger Molasses Cookies for our church potluck.

Needless to say, even though the cookies are gluten free, they are a Trim Healthy Mama no-no. Big time fat & carb collision!
