Menu Plan Monday - Week of August 7, 2016


We start out this week with our 18th Wedding Anniversary!   It truly doesn't seem like it's been that long.  I'm so blessed!

We are starting to try out some things food-wise in preparation for fall and the craziness that comes with evening sports practice, church events and the general busyness of the school year.  That means more slow cooker recipes and other things we can have prepared ahead. I've also been trying to get all of our produce put up for fall and winter.  We have lots of beans, zucchini and some peas and beets.  I'll be putting up tomato sauce this week as well as making pickles.  Lots to do!

In our CSA this last week:
Potatoes
Onions
Garlic
Celery
Fennel
Tomatoes
Kohlrabi
Peas
Green Beans

We bought a gallon of milk and some fruit at the grocery store this last week.  We'll pick up a bit more fruit before the week is over - the children eat a lot of fruit for snacks so that's totally fine.  We also picked tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, and green beans from the garden.
