Week 402 Menu: The Dr Says...

The sun was amazingly bright.  I shared more about it here on my OTHER instagram account @jennysharesjoy.)

Happy Monday!  Nothing like a doctor appointment first thing on Monday to start the week out on a good foot.  I switched doctors and had a great visit with my new one, actually she is a nurse practitioner, but she really knows her stuff.  I loved that she listened to my whole health history (and my family's too) and answered all my questions and didn't make me feel rushed at all.

She gave me some more good guidelines of how to eat with high cholesterol.  (Background...I have high cholesterol but haven't started taking meds (yet), so still experimenting with how my diet affects it.  Darn genetics though...It's been an interesting two years since I found out I had it.  You can read more of my thoughts here.

She recommended that I eat salmon once a week, which I haven't been doing.  My family LOVES the cedar planked grilled teriyaki salmon that I make occasionally, but we haven't had much success with other recipes.  I'm going to try to branch out and hopefully my family survives.  I buy the frozen salmon from Costco so it's not as expensive as fresh.  

Menu time...

Monday:  fried chicken sausage, potatoes, peppers and onions, green salad, cara cara oranges

Tuesday: honey lime enchiladas, instant pot spanish rice, instant pot black beans, homemade quick salsa -- (I usually make my own little enchiladas with less meat, no cheese, sometimes add some quinoa or beans and using corn tortillas)

Wednesday:   grilled pesto chicken & parmesan noodles, butternut squash

Thursday:   clam-less clam chowder and french bread

Friday:  try this sun-dried tomato cedar-planked salmon on the grill, orzo pilaf

Saturday: taco soup

Sunday: family's choice

That's what's we're having this week.  What about you?  What's on YOUR menu this week?  Feel free to share.  I love it when you do.
