My apologies for getting our meal plan posted a little later than usual. It was such a relaxing weekend, and I didn't spend much time at the computer. Lately if the weather is nice we spend every moment possible out at our property. We have the land mostly cleared and 2 of the big brush piles burned. There is still a LOT of wood to split and move out of the way and 2 more brush piles to burn before the major construction of our log home can begin. I suppose the work can begin regardless of splitting the wood and it can happen around the brush piles, but it wouldn't be as convenient.
Do you follow us on Instagram? We are sharing a lot of progress photos there. Of course, if you follow us on Facebook you'll see a couple photos there as well.
By the way, did you see the great giveaway we're hosting right now? We're giving away gift certificates to use at any meat counter for $10 in FREE beef or pork.
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 - Citrus marinated tilapia and braised cabbage
Tuesday - Garden salad with goat cheese and sunflower seeds
Wednesday - Tuna salad on celery sticks with buttered peas
Thursday - Chopped salad with baked chicken breast
Friday - Steak stir fry (we didn't have this last week like I hoped)
Saturday - Mustard-almond crusted salmon and a coconut kale salad (Valentine's Dinner!)
Sunday - Pancakes and homemade sausage patties
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!
