    A late start for the New Year

    Monday-Lobster Bake (lobster tails, shrimp, mussels, scallops, small potatoes and whole corn baked in the oven)
    Tuesday-Seafood Soup (used the juice from yesterday along with the seafood, potatoes and corn with some cream)
    Wednesday-Meatloaf, fried potatoes and French cut Green Beans
    Thursday- Culver's (DD wanted Cheeseburgers)
    Friday-Italian Sausage Burgers with fried onions, peppers and spinach
    Saturday-Steak, baked potatoes and asparagus
    Sunday-Fish Stuffed with crab along with a bowl of homemade coleslaw

    Next week I'm using some free recipes I received for signing up for the Saving Dinner newsletter. This first on is based on the Paleo type of eating.

    Monday-Bacon and Artichoke Stir Fry with a Baby Spinach Salad--this turned out very good. Not sure why anyone would think of putting bacon, artichokes, onion and apple in a pan together but it was a winner.

    Tuesday-Dh decided he wanted an Omelette for dinner
    Wednesday-Chicken and Cauliflower salad with a relish tray
    Thursday-DD wants Waffles or take out
    Friday-Broccoli Sesame Chicken Stir Fry with Cauli-rice and steamed baby carrots and snow peas
    Saturday-LC22 wants to make BBQ JalapeƱo Chicken Bombs
    Sunday-Rosemary Beef along with Faux-Tay-Toes and shredded cabbage

    Scratch the Fettuccine for tonight. The Commissary still doesn't have heavy cream. Apparently the seas have been rough and ships have been having a rough time reaching the island so supplies are dwindling. The Commissary was bare and looked like the apocalypse was coming. The shelves were near empty in several aisles. I'm going to have to rearrange my plan to accommodate that now. Some said that other stores are like that too so it's not just the Commissary. We'll have one of the other menu items tonight, maybe steak. I'll let DH decide when he gets home.

    Jessica....aren't there dairies on the island? Just curious.

    There is only one on our island and all they make is mini artisan cheese wheels, mozzarella, a Waianae Tomme cheese, and a Kona Buzz cheese and artisan butter. They do classes and tours and stuff, but no milk or cream into the local grocery stores. :(

    That's a bummer. Seems so strange to me, as we have so many local dairies here in our little part of the world.

    Jan 14th-20
    Last week we tried the Mail Menu that was based on the Paleo Diet.
    This week it is the Keto Diet

    Monday-Chicken and Zucchini "Alfredo" (I'm thinking it is no noodles but zucchini)
    Tuesday- Cumin Shrimp with Cilantro Cauliflower Rice (already know Dh wants breakfast something instead)
    Wednesday-Swedish Meatballs with Asparagus
    Thursday-Salmon and Avocado BLT on Wilted Salad (unless DD decides on something else)
    Friday-Curried Chicken Tacos with Grilled Coleslaw
    Saturday- Beefy Mexi-Toss with Avocado Crema

    This coming weekend LC22 will be here. I've promised we will finally show her how to make Tamales. So the weekend menu will involve Shredded Pork Salad and then one day of Tamales. I've been making the Shredded Pork Salad for years.

    Lisa- It really is. I guess because the island is so small. Each island has different things to offer I think. Kauai is more "country" than any of the other islands and has more animal agriculture I think.

    We had homemade pizza last night (Monday). Tonight we'll have fettuccine.

    Had salmon yesterday. Having steak burritos tonight. Wednesday will be chicken and rice. Thursday will be spicy spaghetti and Friday will be soup. Saturday we likely do stir fry. We are trying to make our own sauce... tweaking different seasoning.

    Recipes and pics are up on my blog (Menu Monday).

    We had leftovers last night instead of fettuccine, so fettuccine will be tonight. Tomorrow is our anniversary so DH and I will go out and i'll probably order pizza for the kids or leave money for them to go get something. Thursday will by Mini Shepherd's Pies. I haven't gone any farther because i'm waiting for the Commissary to be restocked.

    Considering theh weather we're expecting through the weekend, I've given some thought to my menu. On my way home from work, I'll pick up any missing provisions, so I don't have to travel unless absolutely necessary.

    Tonite: I've got Lemon Chicken (www.dinneratthezoo.com/baked-lemon-chicken) in the crock pot -- I did not brown them this time, due to a time crunch. There were 3 chicken breasts in the package and I used them all, so there will be plenty of leftovers. Will serve it with a side salad, rice, and a vegetable (balsamic glazed brussel sprouts???). Using some of the leftovers, I'll make Chicken Salad for lunch on Thurdsay.
    Thurs. night: I have our monthly dinner with my widows and widowers group. Any leftovers will be had for lunch on Friday.
    Friday night: I'm thinking BBQ chicken pizza (using some leftover chicken) and a salad -- and given my week, a BIG glass of red.
    Saturday night: homemade chicken a la king over biscuits, with glazed carrots and a salad
    Sunday dinner: I'm thinking meatloaf with mashed potatoes, vegetables, and a salad.

    We went to the Commissary yesterday and it was more stocked than it has been so we were able to do a full shop. We had Potato Soup and Grilled Cheese last night. Haven't decided on tonight yet and we need to figure out what we'll eat while camping this weekend but I did make a list of meals before we went shopping. That includes:

    Meatball Subs
    Sloppy Joes
    Chicken on the grill
    Country Pasta
    Fajitas
