I’ve been a bit under the weather lately, and haven’t felt up to writing menus (although I ALWAYS tell the ladies I work with “That’s when you need a menu the most!”), and thus we’ve ended up eating quite a bit at my parent’s house, or some kind of haphazard meal that I throw together.
Makes me feel like a good mother, wife, and keeper of our home?
NOT A BIT.
Plus, I kept getting emails from ladies wondering if I had given up writing them!
If I had known just how many of you read my menus (let alone USED them!) I would have faithfully posted some, if only for that reason.
I’ll know better next time.
So here is this week’s menu. I’m trying to use quite a bit of our garden produce this week – the beets and chard are just about perfect, and the kale is starting to seed, not to mention my 4 foot tall lettuce ;), so we’ll be making good use of those.
