Menu Plan Monday


For this week’s menu, I will be mixing in odds & ends leftovers that I have in the fridge, as well as some new items.  During the week, I periodically go through the fridge to “clean it out.”  I make sure to mix leftovers into meals, or freeze them for a lazy/busy day.  Many leftover items (especially breakfast foods) usually get eaten for snacks, or to supplement a small lunch/dinner plan.  

We often take snacks in the diaper bag for Gen, and she really likes the homemade corn “chips,” strips of homemade tortilla, or homemade crackers or muffins.  Also, I will often pack a container of cut up orange or banana slices for her.  A sippy cup of water is a favorite, too!

Pretty much all my groceries are still “pantry” items from my co-op order.  We did pick up a watermelon, and some cheese and eggs the other day, as well as our weekly raw milk delivery.  Our pots of lettuces have been growing well, so we are eating lots of salads topped with sprouted sunflower seeds.  Yum!  On the other hand, our kale seems a bit confused as to which season it is, so we’ll see if we actually get to eat any of it eventually!
