Week of 9/5 - Urban Homestead Meal Plan

Oy! It's been almost a month back to school (remember, I started about 2 weeks before the kids and teachers returned) and I think maybe, just maybe, I might be getting in the swing of things. This year was a much harder transition for me, and my attitude has been really shitty. Those two things aren't making for a great combination. However, John and I are embarking on a new adventure this fall which is keeping my spirits up. I'll clue you in when some of the details are solidified. 

One new thing I can tell you about is our upcoming Urban Farming Series at the Indian Creek Nature Center! We are so eager to be teaching this series again, which encompasses 6 sessions about all things urban farming. You can GO HERE TO GET MORE DETAILS and register for the series. 


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 beef and cabbage dish from the most recent Tastefully Simple magazine. Think of it like a rueben in a bowl. It was ok, but I won't be making it again. 
Tuesday - *John is working late* Baked 'reuben egg rolls' from last night's leftovers 
Wednesday - *I am working late* Homemade marinara with zucchini noodles
Thursday - *John is working late, again* Grilled salmon over rice with a side of fruit
Friday - Pork loin, leftover rice, and roasted peppers, onions, and mushrooms
Saturday - BLTs and a side salad using any amount of veggies I can grab from the garden
Sunday - Something in the slow cooker. Maybe a soup? Maybe a roast? 

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!
