What’s for Dinner…? Week 4

What' for Dinner

Apparently I like to give myself challenges when it comes to planning our dinner menu. Last week I only had $13 to shop for groceries for the week. This week I am trying an (almost) dairy-free menu plan.

I love cheese. It’s one of my main sources of dairy, as I am not a milk drinker.  I love cooking with cheese. Just take a peak at some of my past Meal Plans. A lot of the meals have cheese in them: Broccoli Cheese Soup, Beef and Cheddar Pot Pie, Pizza, Chicken Quesadillas. Oh, the list goes on.

Well, a couple weeks ago when I was putting together my grocery list, I realized that $9 of groceries that week was going towards cheese. That seemed like a lot of money to me! Not only that, but as I researched “triggers” for some of my health problems, dairy is on the list.

So this week’s challenge (and maybe next week too) is to have a dairy-free, or at least a “cheese-free” dinner plan. This was no easy task! As I went through my Pinterest dinner pins, a lot contained cheese. Even as I flipped through cookbooks, most recipes contained cheese.

BUT, I was able to find some recipes! So here’s what’s for dinner this week…

Thursday:  Chicken Salad Sandwiches with fresh fruit and veggies

Friday:  Dinner with family

Saturday:  TBD

Sunday:  Quick Lime Chicken from Our Life in the Kitchen with brown rice and salad

Monday:  Italian Meat Loaf with mashed potatoes and green beans

Tuesday:  Chicken Tomato Soup from River North Paleo Girl (I’ll be making a few changes, but this recipe is the jist)

Wednesday:  Leftovers
