Menu Plan~6/19

I have a confession to make.

With the craziness of last week's 2 graduation ceremonies and a graduation barbecue/party, I sort of fell off the low-carb wagon.

Because there was cake.

With fudge filling.

I cannot be held responsible for anything that happens when someone brings out a cake with fudge filling.

It was sabotage.

Before I fell of the proverbial wagon, I did pretty well with the plan. Here are some highlights before the fall.

Quiche Lorraine (Recipe this week)

This wasn't on the plan, but since the chickens are practically lining up at the fridge to shoot their eggs directly into the cartons, eggs became the go-to breakfast of the week~just so we could close the refrigerator doors.

Tomato, Cheese, and Onion Omelette's w/ Sweet & Spicy Tabasco and Creme Fraiche

Hazelnut Quinoa Salad with Creamy Strawberry Dressing

This week we'll be repeating a couple of recipes since I got a little carried away when making the sauces. Currently we have an extra pint of Peanut Sauce and a pint of Creamy Strawberry Dressing in the fridge.

I blame the busyness of life.

And the cake.

Here's what's cooking this week...

Homemade soaked granola
Salmon Patties & Kim's Tartar Sauce, Broccoli Salad, Sourdough bread

Roasted Red Pepper & Cheese Omelette's

Yogurt Smoothies, Ezekiel toast w/ peanut butter

Quiche Lorraine
Lemon Scallop Linguine (brown rice pasta) (new), Caesar Salad

Sourdough Pancakes

Dried Cherry Scones (new)
Chicken Tamale Pie (new), Green salad w/ Ranch dressing

Scrambled eggs & elk sausage

Are you making the creme fraiche? It looks much thicker and whiter than mine!!

Anita~I bought this creme fraiche. Mine never looks like this either!

I know a lot of folks who don’t eat eggs (they’re allergic, for health reasons, or concerns about animal cruelty). Here’s an awesome site that gives tips on cooking and baking without eggs:
