Menu Plan: June 18-24

 It has been almost three months since I last posted a menu. For some reason, my typically well-planned life has been not so well-planned as of late, which resulted in some less than stellar menu planning. I think I am back on track, although in about a month everything will be topsy turvy yet again as we move to Champaign!  As a side note, it has been far too long since I have been able to find organic potatoes around here. I found them this past week and promptly bought six pounds. Yikes! Hence all the potato dishes this week...

  • Monday: Birthday berry crisp, fresh fruit
  • Tuesday: Baby red potatoes with sausage and garlic, fresh fruit
  • Wednesday: Perfect fall muffins, hardboiled eggs
  • Thursday: Eggs with sausage and garlic, fresh fruit
  • Friday: Soaked pumpkin oatmeal with walnuts
  • Saturday: Coconut flour pancakes (recipe below!), bacon and fresh fruit
  • Sunday: Eggs with sausage and garlic, fresh fruit
  • Monday: Rice with chicken, fresh fruit
  • Tuesday: Grain-Free Pigs in a Blanket, carrots with homemade ranch dip
  • Wednesday: Cheesy pan-fried potatoes, fresh fruit
  • Thursday: Smoothies with cheese and veggies
  • Friday: Italian stew, fresh fruit
  • Saturday: Salmon patties, fresh fruit
  • Sunday: Lunch at church

Coconut Flour Pancakes
 Makes about 20 pancakes

9 eggs
2 sticks butter or 1 c. coconut oil, melted
1 c. coconut milk (or whole milk)
4 tsp. honey (maple syrup or sucanat works great, too!)
3 tsp. sea salt
3/4 c. coconut flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder (aluminum free, if possible)

Mix together eggs, butter/coconut oil, milk, sweetener and salt in a larger bowl. Add the baking powder and coconut flour and continue to mix until everything is incorporated. Melt a little more butter/coconut oil in a skillet and scoop about an 1/8 of a cup of batter into the pan. Repeat until you have about 20 pancakes. Server warm with more butter and real maple syrup!

  1. Do you make your own coconut flour or do you buy it? If you make it, can you give me some tips? And if you buy it, where, and how much per lb? Thanks!

    1. So sorry I did not see this comment until now! I do not make my own coconut flour, although you probably could if you have a dehydrator.

      I like to buy this brand, but I only order from here when they offer free shipping:

      I have also bought it here:

      Hopefully that helps!

  2. Yes, thanks! I have tried making it before (found a you tube video ha!) with little success. So I will look at those websites :)
