Menu Plan {1.20-26}

So far this month, I’ve had a “restocking week” with resupplying our pantry from the co-op (such as a 25 lb bag of rice), followed by a “kitchen week” with making chicken stock, yogurt, and bread dough. (I’m also saving up a bit of our grocery budget each month to purchase a side of grass-fed beef later in the spring.) Now, this week, I’m able to focus more on hospitality; preparing some meals for others in our community.

    Hi there!
    Your menu always includes such appealing recipes from a vast array of sources. I’m curious, how do you go about finding these recipes? Are they word of mouth, something you saw in food magazine and then did a Google search, something you had at a potluck,…? Oftentimes I click on the link for the recipe, and then discover the website or blog has lots of other recipes that appeal to me. Thanks for helping to keep fun, frugal food on our table! Sharon

    I usually find the recipes with a quick online search for recipes using ingredients from my pantry/seasonal items, or looking up a food that a family member has requested (such as something they sampled at a restaurant). I also have a stack of favorite cookbooks that I browse through when I do my monthly menu plan, plus I find fun ideas on Pinterest. :)
