Welcome to my first Menu Plan Monday post on The Working Home Keeper blog! I used to participate in MPM on my other blog, but stopped much to my husband's displeasure. Turns out he enjoyed having a reminder of our weekly meal plan available to him on-line LOL! So I'm starting up again. I'm hoping this will keep me from slacking when it comes to menu planning.
A note about ingredients - Last year, our family made a switch to whole and nourishing foods. Most ingredients used in the making of these recipes are organic, organically-grown and/or natural (free from HFCS or preservatives). Locally-grown items are also noted. For cooking, I use traditional oils - olive oil, butter and organic, cold-pressed, extra virgin coconut oil. Local honey or organic sucanat is used in place of refined sugar.
This Week's Meals:
On the weekends, I prep for the coming week's meals. It helps with saving time in the evenings when I get in from work. I forgot about soaking and cooking the dried Great Northern beans for the Minestrone soup. But I did dice onions and green peppers, sliced mushrooms, made pizza dough and pizza sauce.
Soaked oatmeal (The Nourishing Gourmet)
Sprouted English muffins
Sprouted toast w/organic peanut butter
Scrambled pastured eggs
Usually sandwiches or dinner leftovers
Dinner Out - Reed's Birthday
Salmon Patties with organic brown rice & steamed local broccoli
Taco Style Organic Lentils & Organic, Brown Rice (Hillbilly Housewife)
Minestrone Soup (The Prudent Homemaker)
Spanish Rice (The Prudent Homemaker)
