My Vegetarian Meals for a Month is far and away the most popular page on my blog (and the Vegetarian Meals for Another Month is also in the top 10). I’ve recently had some folks asking for some of my recipes that contain meat, which I’ve been cooking a lot more often now that I’ve discovered I’m allergic to almost all legumes. So I bring you the Omnivorous Menu for a Month! Some are the omni version of recipes in the veggie menus (e.g., stir-fries) and some are completely new (cabbage roll fry-up).
These menus also include recipes for making homemade stock from chicken, pork, and beef. However, you don’t need to make your own stock to use these recipes – in several places, I’ve included “super fast and easy” directions as well as “100% homemade” directions. Take your pick!
As per usual, there’s a mix of proteins, starches, and flavor families each week. This batch of recipes is pretty winter-oriented, it being January and all…lots of kale, potatoes, and tomatoes and not a cucumber or watermelon to be seen. Enjoy!
