Last week was absolutely nuts, guys. It was a very busy week at work with the beginning teachers that I support. Most exciting, however: Our home was listed for sale and we had showings every night after work but Friday, and on both Saturday and Sunday. That meant we needed to grab the dogs and scram for a few hours. Luckily, we have a pretty sweet spot to hang out.
This fabulous location happens to be our new home(stead). This is all I am showing you for now. Rest assured, John and I feel like God led us directly to this place. He put everything in line and it has worked out perfectly.
Even the pups are in heaven.
This week looks to be just as busy with showings, as well as a few classes that we're teaching during the week. All of this is on top of our days jobs. You can imagine at the end of the week we (mostly me) feel pretty strung out.
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 - Homemade tomato soup and garlic toast
Tuesday - We're teaching an Urban Farming Series, so dinner will be a homemade frozen pizza
Wednesday - We're teaching a backyard chicken course, so tonight we're eating eggs and toast.
Thursday - I am working a vendor fair at A Place 4 Friends; dinner will be out. Maybe a sandwich from my favorite food co-op? John is on his own.
Friday - Spinach ravioli and homemade marinara
Saturday - Oven-roasted veggies (zucchini, onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, sweet tater) with crumbled bacon…this is the easiest one-pan meal I've ever made.
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!
