The Menu Planner to Rule Them All | Menu planning is one thing my husband and I both agreed would not only make our lives easier, but so much healthier. We’ve never done it before (chalking it up to busyness), but we’ve gotten into that chips-and-queso-for-dinner scenario one too many times of late…. It was time to make a change. Enter, the menu planner to rule them all!

ONE MENU PLANNER TO RULE THEM ALL: a fun DIY project to take the indecision out of meal planning and to help plan out the grocery list. You could even do it month style with a simpler technique I.E. A month calender with larger boxes (possibly a white erase board) and different options for the main dish (beef, chicken, pork, even salad, etc) in one compartment, and side choices in the second (roasted potatoes, dinner rolls, quinoa, rice, pasta, etc). Veggies could be whatever you have in the house or fresh from the garden if you are lucky enough to have one! This method would be an easier way to plan for those of us who unfortunately don't have a fully stocked fridge and pantry at all times and easier for shopping bi-monthly as I do! Definitely pulled some inspiration from this!
Love this meal planner idea!!!

Zero points: Cauliflower popcorn (Break a head of cauliflower into popcornlike, bite-size florets, then spread them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spray the cauliflower lightly with olive oil, then sprinkle with turmeric, red pepper flakes, freshly ground pepper, and sea salt. Bake 20 to 30 minutes at 425 degrees F or until the cauliflower is slightly browned.) (1 cup = 29 cal., 5 g carb., 0 g fat, 2 g pro.) so good...could not stop eating.

Thai Coconut Curry Soup
Thai Food, Fish Sauces, Coconut Curries Soups, Coconut Milk, Coconut Curry Soup, Thai Coconut, Rice Noodles, Soups Recipe, Chef Michael Smith
Thai Coconut Curry Soup - as my friend promised, this was very good! And, best of all, very easy to make. It was missing a "sweet" quality that I can't put my finger on, but something that differentiates it from the Thai food place I frequent. Who knows, maybe they simply add sugar to their recipe. I used TJ's light canned coconut milk, so that kept the calories and fat content low in this.
Thai Coconut Curry Soup Recipe Soups, Main Dishes with coconut milk, curry paste, cilantro, chicken breasts, chicken broth, carrots, lime leaves, lemon grass, fish sauce, lime, ginger, beansprouts, rice noodles, cilantro leaves, green onions, salt https://www.etsy.com/listing/187205449/dear-mom-thanks-for-putting-up-with-a?ref=listing-shop-header-0
Thai Coconut Curry Soup - Chef Michael Smith Ingredients 2 cans (14-ounce/400 mL each)of premium coconut milk 1 heaping tablespoon (20 mL) of Thai curry paste the tender stems of 1 bunch of cilantro, rinsed well 2 chicken breasts, thinly sliced 2 cups (500 mL0 of chicken broth 1 carrot, shredded 4 or 5 lime leaves 2 stalks of lemon grass, halved lengthwise, woody leaves removed 2 tablespoons (30 mL) of fish sauce the zest and juice of 2 limes a small knob frozen ginger a handful bean sprouts a 8 ounce (225 g) package rice noodles 1 bunch of cilantro leaves, rinsed well 2 or 3 green onions, thinly sliced a sprinkle or two salt or soy sauce Procedure Scoop the thick coconut cream from the top of just one of the cans into a large stockpot set over a medium-high heat. Melt the cream, add the curry paste and stir for a few minutes until they begin to sizzle. Add the cilantro roots and chicken and sauté until the chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add the coconut juice from the first can and all the contents of the second can along with the chicken broth, carrot, lime leaves, lemon grass, fish sauce and lime zest and juice. Grate the frozen ginger into the broth with a Microplane grater or standard box grater. Simmer for 20 minutes or so. Stir in the bean sprouts. Add the rice noodles, gently pushing them beneath the surface of the broth. Turn off the heat and let stand until the noodles soften, about 5 minutes. Rice noodles don’t need to simmer like pasta to cook; they simply need to rehydrate in the hot liquid. Stir in most of the cilantro leaves. Remove the lemon grass stalks. Taste and season with a touch more salt (or soy sauce) as needed. Ladle into large bowls and garnish with the green onions and remaining cilantro leaves.
