Menu Plan – Week of September 19

Well, I survived my camping trip this weekend, albeit a little worn and tattered (but that which does not kill you, right?).

Just as I had suspected, “Heidi” and “Camping” are two words that do not belong in the same sentence!  Here are just a few words/phases that highlight my weekend: wolves, animal bones, dead snake, melted basketball shorts, BB’s, freezing cold, rain, injured child, sleep deprivation, injured mom, 3 am port-a-potty catastrophe and exploding rocks (fire can do that).

Yes, we all made it home alive (although I think Mike were wishing otherwise…I may have had a tiny meltdown).  I, or rather, Mike, will share the details later.

Once they’ve had a chance to become funny. 😉

Monday: Chili Dogs (growing up, my mom never made chili dogs on a bun, instead, she served homemade chili con carne in a bowl with cut up hot dogs as the garnish…naturally gluten/grain-free!) and Fruit Salad

Tuesday: Grilled Chicken, Baked Sweet Potatoes and Tomato Slices

Wednesday: Homemade Hamburger Helper, Steamed Broccoli and Fresh Peaches

Thursday: Ham and Potato Soup (I will use coconut oil instead of butter, So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk and I will puree half of the mixture to use as the thickener instead of using flour) and Green Salad

Friday: Slowcooker Ribs n’ Kraut (I’ll use Bubbies Sauerkraut) and Homemade Sugar-Free Applesauce

Saturday: Everyday Paleo Cabbage Rolls and Fruit Salad

Sunday: Slowcooker Hearty Beef Stew


  1. that sounds like a great menu!

  2. Yay! You survived! The next trip will be easier. 😉 Good for you for trying something out of your comfort zone.

  3. I'm wondering how long it wil take for the trip to be funny … that sure sounds like a lot of catastrophes, dahling! 😉 Glad you all survived!!!

    Sounds like another great week of eating at the Kelly house! I know all your readers want to just show up and plop down at your table after you post your menu plan each week. I know I do!



  4. Thanks for letting us smile at your adventures (camping challenges)!

  5. I just made the ham & potato soup tonight, it was great! Gave me great ideas for other *chowder* type soups. Thanks!
