Mostly Homemade Mondays - Week 153 + URBAN HOMESTEAD MEAL PLAN!

In this week's meal plan, you'll find some items are bolded, which indicates a 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.

Note: Lunches are always leftovers, and we rarely have dessert. On weekends, we usually have some sort of brunch featuring eggs from the ladies instead of a leftover lunch. Dinners are listed below: 
  • Monday - Coconut chicken soup with a hunk of homemade bread
  • Tuesday - Beef lasagna from the deep freezer and steamed broccoli
  • Wednesday - Pork egg rolls from the deep freezer handsome sort of rice/quinoa side dish
  • Thursday - Black bean enchiladas and something else 
  • Friday - Campfire pies
  • Saturday - Chili and/or chili dogs
  • Sunday - Vegetarian quiche
Anyway, on to the party:

Mostly Homemade Mondays is a series for people that are on a journey to better living, via healthier eating and a more natural lifestyle.

  1. Hi there. I have a question unrelated to the above blog post but I am sure you would have the answer. I have recently got backyard chickens and they have started laying beautifuly.I was just wondering if you had any tips on pealing hard boiled eggs? The shell really seems stick to the fresh eggs so my eggs are not smooth and pretty for salads

    1. The fresher the egg, the harder they are to peel. Grocery store eggs are sometimes a month old by the time we get them off the shelf, which is why they are easier to peel. Try using your oldest eggs as hard boiled. There are also some tricks on YouTube, but none really seem to work for us.


Got some thoughts? Don't be shy. Leave 'em here!
