New Season....New Routines....New Goals....New Menus

I am back!  After a very long break, I am back in the blogging game.  We were very busy this summer and choose to put blogging on the back burner for awhile.  With a new month, a new season, and some new routines beginning I have chosen to start back up.  I have some new ideas for this blog and my hope is to have a new blog up 2-3 times a week.  Hopefully I can actually keep up with that.

We are starting to see lots of produce coming in from the farm, our backyard garden, and my dad's garden.  We plan to start canning soon and drying some goods, so that we can enjoy our hard work all year long.  We are learning a lot about farming/gardening and we will be pros next year!  I have some pictures that I will share this week!

Here is our menu for this week with some links to some great recipes.  Remember to try your hardest to eat sustainable, local, and/or organic food.

MONDAY-  Tuna Pasta Salad, Fried Green Tomatoes with a Remoulade sauce.  (I used only the recipe for the sauce on this link)

TUESDAY-  Spaghetti with homemade tomato sauce and a green salad (I will post the recipe for the sauce this week.)

WEDNESDAY-   Vegetarian Taco Salad

THURSDAY- Honey-Soy Salmon, Brown Rice, Braised Green Beans & Summer Vegetables

FRIDAY-  Tomato and Basil Flatbread Pizzas

SATURDAY-  Going out to eat at Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB)

SUNDAY-  Szechuan Tofu & Green Bean Stirfry

Other goodies I am cooking this week:
Zucchini Bread
Pesto Sauce (Lots to freeze)

Be well,
