Real Food Weekly Menu #31 ~ Father's Day Week!

Well, it's definitely summertime: last minute BBQs, filthy children staying up way past their bedtimes, lake days, strawberry, blueberry, and cherry picking, jamming...  We didn't mow through our entire menu last week, so there are some carry-overs into this week.  We did however find a new favorite dish: sole with lemon cream.  What a delicious, quick, nourishing meal!  For those of you who live near a Trader Joe's, I was happy to discover they offer wild-caught sole in the freezer section.  My kids have VBS this week and they are offered a light lunch there, so lunches on the menu will also be light to round things out (and to get some nutrition down them).

Also, next Sunday is Father's Day!  So instead of taking my usual Sunday off where we eat up the week's leftovers, Saturday will be leftover day and Sunday will be cook-Daddy's-favorite-dishes day.

  1. I love your meal plans - such inspiration! Thanks for sharing. Do you happen to have a healthy baked bean recipe?

  2. Hey Katie,
    Maybe you have a post about it but I am just curious what started you in this road of eating this way? I would love to read about your journey. Thanks!

  3. Lots of great inspiration! I just got 2 Paleo cookbooks last week, and I'm so excited to start trying the recipes. I may try the squash pancake recipe for breakfast tomorrow with the kids.


I value your feedback. Thanks for taking the time to share yours!
