Menu Plan Monday - Week #2 of the June 2013 Pantry Challenge


Okay, so the photo has absolutely nothing to do with this week's menu - except that it's edible!  I was organizing my photos and found this ice cream snowman that my cousin Diane made with the kids on their birthday a couple of years ago - super cute and tasty too! (At least for those of us that like coconut!)

We're still eating form the pantry this week. We have a relatively quiet week in terms of "doings" so I have a little more time to bake this week.  We have plenty of meat in the freezers so all the meat we're eating this week is coming from the freezer.

We planted the rest of our vegetables this weekend -they finally were big enough and it was dry enough to get them it.  It's been so wet, I've been afraid that we'd have rotted roots and it's been so gray that the plants were so little.  Well, they're in! I'm looking forward to home-grown tomatoes and peppers in a month or so. We also planted peas, beans, zucchini, 2 types of winter squash, and a pumpkin.  Our CSA should start by the end of this month too. I'm really looking forward to a whole bunch of garden-fresh vegetables this year!

What are you eating this week?
