Urban Homestead Meal Plan - Week of 1/2/2017

Happy New Year! 

The craziness of the holidays are {finally} over. My sister gets married this weekend, which is the last major event that will culminate the whirlwind that has been the last 2 months. If you don't remember, since October we have (in no particular order):

Listed our home for sale. 
Taught an Urban Farming Series. 
Hosted a Bridal Shower for 70 people for my sister. 
Sold our home. 
Moved to a 700 square foot apartment. 
Celebrated the holidays with family. 
Finalized details for our 900 square foot log cabin home. 

It's time to slow down and be still in 2017. We're building a home, which isn't typically conducive to stillness. I am hell bent on enjoying every moment of this journey, even the part of the journey that requires us to live 'communally' in an apartment for 6 months. 

Look for a few posts coming up in January on how we're composting and recycling in an apartment that doesn't offer such services. You can bet that we're stepping outside the box on this one!

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 - Vegetable stir fry with a homemade peanut sauce
Tuesday - Roasted bone-in chicken breast (we'll share one, they're large!) and a sweet potato mash
Wednesday - Baked tilapia with a tahini sauce and almond green beans
Thursday - Leftovers! Anything in the fridge and pantry is fair game. 
Friday -  Wedding rehearsal dinner
Saturday - Wedding!
Sunday - Travel home

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!
