Menu Planning Week Six

February 6th, 2017 at 11:53 pm

So I bought some oranges and some cabbage as it is cheaper than lettuce and will last a lot longer and we will be having cole slaw instead of salads when I want those at dinner time. I did get the purple cabbage so it will be pretty as well as have more vitamin content. Everything else is food we have on hand and I am going to try to be keeping to that as closely as possible.

I made Wednesday an easy crockpot day. I will make the Kaiser rolls the day before. They are easy.

Leftover Casserole--Frozen turkey and stuffing from Christmas, sour cream, cheese, poultry seasoning, cream of chicken soup, tater tots

    I've switched over to bags of apples from my berries. I'm glad you have lots of stores to draw from.

    It is hard to give up berries right now, but I have done also. They are not in season. Oranges, apples, and bananas are, so are much cheaper.

    Hey Lucky Robin,

    If I remember right, I saw a post where you missed taco seasoning. The below is my go-to recipe as I also have a food intolerance to nightshades. It is good with browned beef like you put in tacos. Even my normal taco season friends and family like it. I also really like it on chicken for fajitas and enchiladas or mixed in dips for chips. It originally called for half the garlic, but I love garlic, so I upped it.

    1 lb browned meat
    1/2 cup water

    1 tsp Salt
    1 tsp Sugar
    1 tsp Onion Powder
    1 tsp Garlic Powder
    1 tsp Cumin
    1 tsp Coriander
    1 tsp Cilantro
    1 tsp Oregano

    Thanks for thinking of me. I did come up with one that is almost identical to that, only no sugar and with black pepper (which is not a nightshade). I did some experimenting with seasonings over the last two weeks. I find it kind of amazing how close yours is to the one I did, only I used TBSP for most of mine because we wanted it more intensely flavored.

  5. elitaylor646 Says:

    I usually like mine more intensely flavored too! I never thought of doing the black pepper. I am going to have to try it next time. :-)

    It always amazes me how many things and dishes have nightshades in them. It took me a long time to figure out substitutes, but since you do a lot of homegrown and cook yourself, I bet you got the hang of it fast!

  6. LuckyRobin Says:

    Pretty fast. I'm intuitive with herbs and spices and have managed to reverse engineer quite a few dishes from restaurants and come up with some good blends of my own.
