Menu for May 31st – June 6th

Photobucket

Our garden is just starting to do some really good production –
zucchini here we come! 🙂
The cherry tomatoes are starting to ripen, as well as all the cucumbers, so hopefully I’ll be able to get some pickles made… if not this week than next 😉
I have 2 lbs of lovely grassfed/finished ground beef that I’m excited to use… it’s SO good!
We’re at the end of the month for our budget so no fun and exciting things until the 7th.
I’m trying a few new dishes this week that will hopefully give us some ideas for using our cupboard products in NEW ways!
(cos, really, it’s just TOO hot for chili these days!)

  1. Hi, Meg. Thanks for stopping by Treasuring the Moments and commenting. This is my first time to your blog.

    Your menu’s look very healthy. I’m all for that! I’m curious about your kefir smoothies and kombucha popsicles. Would you mind sharing recipes for those?
