Menu Plan Monday 10/10-10/15

     Last week, we started trying to eat healthier by cutting out most fats, salts, and sugars. We pretty much stuck with it. I didn't cheat once...until Saturday! That day was crazy with J reffing soccer games and Octoberfest nearby. J was on his own for lunch, while Miss E and I had Mexican: Salt overload---but delicious! Later that night we had Papa Murphy's pizza and ice cream, too. Oh well, one day once in a while isn't too bad right? Sunday, we were back on track and plan to be this week. This is what we will be eating...

Breakfasts: 
     Egg/Potato scramble, turkey sausage & fruit, healthier waffles
Lunch:
     Leftovers, as always
Dinners:
     Sunday: Meat Pie-fail! * See note below
     Monday:Baked Chicken and potatoes, broccoli
     Tuesday: Mock gyros w/ Tzatziki sauce (another brave attempt to make something "normal" without salt)
     Wednesday: White chicken chili
     Thursday: Chili topped baked potatoes, asparagus
     Friday: In laws are coming, going out
     Saturday: I go to the store, so who knows

*The Meat Pie....I thought I would try this because it sounds so unhealthy I was sure it would be a hit to J who just about refuses to eat healthy. My sister ate with us and said it was pretty good "if" you add butter, salt, and more pepper. My problem with it basically was that I felt it had no taste, but I did leave out the butter and salt on purpose. Here is the recipe if you want to try it for yourself...hopefully adding more butter or salt.

1-lb ground turkey
1 sm chopped onion
1/2 tsp chili powder (more to taste)
1/8 tsp pepper
8 oz tomato sauce
2-1/2 c mashed potatoes (I recommend adding the salt and butter here)
  • Brown meat and onion. Add tomato sauce and spices. Simmer 15 minutes.
  • Put meat in baking dish. Top with potatoes. Sprinkle with paprika.
  • Bake @ 350*  until browned on top.
