Dinner Menu

Tonight is grocery shopping night. This is a much bigger task, now that we eat differently. The high desert is not exactly the best at providing health food stores. I do my best with what is availbale and pray that such a store opens soon. Here is our dinner menu for the work week:
Monday: Homemade oven roasted chicken, corn on the cob, summer spinach salad.
Tuesday: Fish tacos with fresh pico de gallo, queso fresco, cabbage and yogurt lime sauce.
Wednesday: Chicken tortilla soup with black beans, corn, veggies, sour cream, cheese and enchilada sauce.
Thursday: Lettuce wraps with thai peanut chicken, brown rice.
Friday: Roast beef, cous cous, steamed veggies, gravy.

Dessert will be fresh fruit or homemade juice pops. For now, we are not eliminating dairy. When we find out what Daniel is allergic to (if anything,) we will alter our menus. Until then, we are just focusing on eliminating anything processed, food dye, bleached flour, refined sugars and corn syrup.

Yum! Your menu for the week sounds delicious! Where do you get your recipes?
I don't know if your kids like mango but if they do, mango salsa goes great with chicken, fish, or steak. I make it for my family at least once a week and it adds flavor to any dish and it's all natural. The ingredients are Mango, tomato, avocado, cilantro, serrano (skip this when making for the kids), Extra Virgin Olive Oil, lime juice, and salt. Just thought I'd let you know.

They are putting in a new store on Main St. I think it's called Fresh and Easy?? Not sure if you've seen it. Hopefully that will help.
