Here's the deal. My brain is way too tired to figure out a menu. I do this every day of the year but now I just can't do it. I'm starting my 9th month and cooking for family with food restrictions for a variety of reasons. I can't be on my feet for so long, at this point, so I need quick and easy.
Shabbos will be regular shabbos menu.
No dairy meals.

These are the rules:
Each meal has to have a meat and a chicken
No nuts, coconut, soy, corn, gluten, or seeds
Chicken can't have eggs
Meat can't have sugar
Veggie sides can't have any sugar or grains
Starch sides can't have any eggs
No pre-mixed spices, though I have some that I make myself like chili powder, Montreal steak seasoning, Sharma seasoning
Each meal has to have a starch side and a veggie side. A fresh salad would be a nice bonus, though not totally necessary.
Dessert will either be fresh fruit, homemade applesauce, or homemade sorbet. Unless you have another idea that is super quick and easy that kids will appreciate.
And I don't care to just serve one course and dessert. 5 course meal not necessary in the slightest bit.

My brain is mostly fried so I hope I got it all right. If you're still reading and following, you're probably a genius and I hope you can help me come up with 4 yt meals!

I don't mind helping. Does each meal need to be different or can some things double

Thank you so much for taking the time to help!

This looks great. Only thing is the chicken cuz mayo has eggs, chicken can't have eggs with it.
But I'll totally use this menu otherwise. Thanx!

Baked chicken bottoms with pepper & mushrooms
Roasts
Deli salad
A salad made with Grilled chicken or steak strips or with schwarma chicken ( you can grill meats on hot plate griddle with parchment paper on yom tov)
For fish you can do baked or cooked salmon, or a salad of lox strips or pieces of baked salmon cubes.

For baked salmon you can do oil & spices, or with lemon/citrus topped with tropical salsa like pineapple, mango, pom arils, you can add purple onion if you like, could be cold salsa or baked with salsa, or salmon with letcho on top.

Wow! So many great ideas here!

Just pointing out that the night meals are very late. For the second night meal (3rd this year) especially, I find nobody is very hungry, so I keep the menu very light, eg. soup and a big salad with grilled chicken and roasted vegetables.

You're right birch, but I'd you have guests or sons in-law or bochurim, you usually the serve a lot...or at least offer. That's why the last meal always includes leftovers and just one new main
