We were pretty boring this week. It was a huge canning week for me and I put up over 100 jars of peaches, tomatoes, potatoes, and onions. On our big canning weeks I just go for easy things!


  • Cucumbers
  • Tomato Gravy & Brown Rice Pasta
  • Leftovers
  • Lettuce & Chicken Roll Ups
  • Smoothies (Ended up having to throw in a few of these in a pinch)
Dessert & Snacks:
What are you planning for meals this week?

We’ve got a few things planned, mostly with the local chicken I managed to get for $0.69/lb. I love our grocery store *grin* … Tonight, though, I’m making Korean Beef ( if you care to look at it lol). It’s so easy, and incredibly delicious. I usually do it up with a side of rice and steamed brocolli and cauliflower. :) Later in the week I might make some Hungarian dishes with the chicken, but we’ll see what people are up to. I might be asked for chicken’n'dumplings too.

I go against every rule of food planning. I don’t plan until the day I cook. However, we shop ONCE a month (other than for more milk, and we have our own eggs/chickens here) for food and staples. I can literally whip together homemade whole grain rolls for hamburgers, or toss together a salad fresh from my garden. My husband says what he has a taste for for supper and that is the meal I cook. During the school year the kids eat breakfast and lunch at school, but I also give them yogurt smoothies or green smoothies in the mornings. Shopping once a month keeps my food bill at a set price, so as long as I am not buying more food, I can cook whatever daily

All I did was make a simple chicken salad and roll it up in a lettuce leaf instead of having it in sandwich form.
