Menu for April 5th – 11th


Our menu is finally back on track!
I knew it was going to be difficult to try and get back into the swing of things after taking two weeks off, but I have sorely missed seeing the menu posted on our fridge!

This week we are going to be blessed with turkey…  a LARGE turkey.  My husband’s grandparents received a turkey at Christmastime “free with purchase” from Vons, and saved it for us in their deep freeze… which broke this week.

So we will be picking the turkey up tomorrow and roasting it… mmm… it’s like Thanksgiving in April! 🙂

I’ll also be making stock, and freezing some of the meat, mostly just because I don’t want to have to eat turkey for the ENTIRE week! 😉

I also received some questions about my recipes – why I don’t have them listed/linked… that’s because I usually pull my menu ideas out of cookbooks, not online.  I am always happy to share recipes, but I just haven’t had the time to post ALL the recipes I use.  Please let me know if there are any in particular you’d like me to share, or just email me and I’ll get back to you within the day (barring all hell breaking loose, of course.)

  1. I am excited to find your blog! I think I will have to be more detailed in my menu plan. Those things have to be done and it will be wonderful to have it on “paper” so I can see ahead of time.

    Question: do you have a post on soaking and baking with soaked grains? I have began slowly transitioning our food in the Nourishing Traditions methods, but soaking grains for baking I have not made it there!

    Love the fact you have the snacks all planned out. And I love the fact that others eat as often as we do!!!
