Menu for June 7th – 13th

Photobucket

I’m attempting this week to continue using many items that we already have…
this includes my expected harvest of several more zucchini, eggplant, and tomatoes this week! 🙂
I am using a good deal of my budget this month to re-stock several items we’ve run out of: oatmeal (made it through our first 25 lb bag! 🙂 ), maple syrup, rapadura sugar, and coconut oil.  (You know, all the expensive stuff!)

I also have an ambitious list this week of freezer stock-up baking to do… while I sincerely doubt it will all get done, it’s nice to at least THINK I’ll accomplish it all.

Oh, and we’re having company for the first 3 days this week. My cousin is coming up from L.A., and we’re VERY excited to see and spend time with her. 🙂

  1. Mmmm, what a great sounding menu. I made the Cheesy Chicken Vermicelli that was on my menu last night and everyone thought it tasted great. It’s SO easy to prepare, too.
