Week 40: Chili Week

Relaxation. . . That's the spirit of this week.  My friend, Anne, and I got to escape this weekend and enjoy a mom's retreat up in Rome, GA!  We had such a wonderful time connecting with other moms, learning great tips and eating food that we did not prepare!  You know I love to cook, but I also LOVE to eat delicious food that I don't have to cook and clean!  I ate dessert with both lunch and dinner!  That makes for a perfect weekend in my book!  :)

This is the Winshape Retreat in Rome, GA!  
We're trying to find a good chili that's Paleo-friendly.  There's tons of recipes on Paleo recipe sites, but we haven't been impressed with the ingredient lists, so we're going to try a bean-free chili.  We tried our existing chili recipe on Sunday night, but it just didn't taste quite right.  In addition to taking away the beans, we also used ground turkey instead of ground beef.  So, we'll be trying another non-bean recipe later in the week and we'll let you know if it's any good!

On the Menu. . .

Sunday - Chili (w/no beans for Paleo diet), salad
Monday - Seared mahi-mahi with tropical salsa, green beans, yellow rice
TuesdayChicken Roman Style, roasted cauliflower, roasted sweet potatoes and potatoes
Wednesday - Leftovers
Thursday - Roasted Salmon with mixed veggies (I use pre-marinated salmon from Costco with a Normandy mix of frozen veggies, defrost it all and throw it together on a cookie sheet at 400 F for 15-20 minutes)
Friday - Texas beef chili, broccoli, mixed green salad
Saturday - Hopefully more leftovers. . .

Post your menus, everyone!  It's ok if you are eating pizza or hot dogs too!

Happy cooking!
