Hi friends. It's been about a week and a half since we've talked, and I have some BIG NEWS to share with you. That big news is in addition to this week's meal plan ;) Read for it:
John and I are moving!
Well, technically John and I and Manny and Bruce and five chickens are moving. We're going to stay in Eastern Iowa; only about 15 minutes from our home now, actually.
But, that's all I am sharing for now.
I know, I know. You have questions! You want to see pictures! You want to know if this move will change this blog!
I can answer that last question: Yes. Yes, this blog will change ever-so-slightly in terms of what we share. Over the next year we will be sharing some 'moving specific' blog posts, as well as our regular meal plans and urban-homesteading-sustainable-living posts.
I promise to share more with you over the next month or so. Stay tuned!
In this week's meal plan (which is sometimes a photo of our menu board in our kitchen, sometimes a screenshot of my Real Plans, sometimes a simple list with links to recipes), you'll find several homegrown or local item from our urban homestead. Of course, there will be a few repeats throughout the week since we try to eat in-season and lots of leftovers for lunch. Breakfast is usually a smoothie or steel cut oats; something that can be prepared quickly in the morning.
Monday - We had a little campfire and cooked brats and s'mores
Tuesday - We're teaching an urban farming series, so dinner will likely be a grilled cheese and fruit
Wednesday - Beef and black bean enchiladas
Thursday - Leftover enchiladas and a fresh veg, like brussels sprouts
Friday - Slow cooker chicken and black bean tacos
Saturday - Slow cooker beef roast, sweet potato
Sunday - Eggs, toast, sausage and whatever fruit we can find in the house
It might seem complicating to eat locally and in season, but we actually get the bulk of our meal plan ideas from Real Plans. You can go here to learn more!
