Monday menu

Just in case your wondering what I'm working on this week, my 6 year old is obsessed with Entenmanns's Little Bites. Those are absolutely horrible for you! Talk about processed garbage, it has every mother's nightmare for ingredients.  If you've ever had a child with a food aversion, you'll see that they fixate on certain foods and right now it's little bites. I've made several mini muffins this week but they aren't close to the heavenly taste of those Little Bites so I will keep trying and let you know what I come up with.  Meanwhile, here is our menu:

Monday:      Burgers, sweet potato fries and salad
Tuesday:     Slop, cauliflower rice, brussel sprouts

Brown a pound of ground meat and onion.  Add 2 cups of broth of your choice and bring to boil.  Mix 2 TBS of flour with 1 TBS of cold water in a mug.  Slowly stir this into the broth meat mixture.  Add a Tsp of rosemary, 1/2 tsp of sage, salt to taste, 1 TBSP of worcheshire.  add any other seasonings you may want.  Once thickened and simmering, add a cup of frozen peas.  Cook until peas are soft.  Serve over rice or in our case, shredded cauliflower.  I play around with the seasonings each time so I just estimated my common concoction.

Wednesday: Chicken cordon bleu, asparagus

Cordon Bleu
Preheat oven to 400.  Pound out some chicken breasts or buy them flattened as I do.  Lay a piece of Hormel's nitrate free ham on each breast and a piece of swiss cheese.  Roll up tightly and insert a toothpick if needed.  Preheat a pan with about a half inch of olive oil.  Beat an egg in one bowl.  Place a cup of almond flour (or pankos if you wish) in another bowl.  Dip each breast in egg and then flour.  Fry in pan until brown (about 3 min each side).  Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.  Check to make sure done.

Thursday:    Brats, turnip fries, salad
Friday:        Chicken casserole paleo style
