Menu Planning is something (when I do it) that keeps me accountable for using the fresh fruits & vegetables we have on hand, makes sure I plan enough fruits & vegetables into each day, provides enough variety on the  menu from day to day, and helps me get supper on the table in a timely manner every evening.

That said. I think it’s high time I got back in that habit don’t you think? This week’s menu is centered largely around the produce that we received in last week’s organic produce co-op share, as well as the additional produce items I purchased at the store and the meats that I have on hand in the freezer.  This week we’ll be trying one new recipe (the ground turkey soup) and leaning heavily on many of our regular “safe” meals.


Breakfast – Bagels, cream cheese, fresh strawberries
Lunch – Nacho Supremes (from Sunday’s leftover chipotle burrito fixings.)
Snack – Sliced sweet peppers, broccoli & ranch

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
