Week of 10/24 - Urban Homestead Meal Plan

Praise the Lord. For the first time in 3 weeks, we are able to be home for dinner 4 out of 5 weeknights. This is such a rare luxury that I don't know whether to laugh or cry. You would think in honor of that I would be planning some elaborate meals, but I am actually going to keep it simple so we can manage to enjoy some of the beautiful Iowa fall weather. In the last 3 weeks we haven't been able to enjoy much of that either.

Maybe I do want to cry...

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 - Grilled chicken and spiced butternut squash
Tuesday - We're teaching an urban farming series, so dinner will likely be a homemade frozen pizza
Wednesday - Steak, onion, pepper, and mushroom kabobs on the grill with seasoned rice
Thursday - Egg sandwiches and fruit
Friday - Homemade pizza using any veggies and meat from the fridge
Saturday - Grilled cheeseburgers (bunless) with steamed veggies from the freezer
Sunday - Tuna melts and roasted veggies (sweet taters, onions, peppers, mushrooms, etc.)

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!
