I’m late getting the menu up because the weekend was so busy! We had beautiful weather, so in between our other activities I was able to get some weeding done (note to self: make it a priority to get all the flower beds mulched and “newspapered” like I wrote about, and then maybe next spring I won’t have a ton of weeds!) and start getting the vegetable garden ready for some early planting.
If you’re wondering what you can plant now, the Organic Garden Vegetable Checklist you can download from my sidebar is a good resource. Try it and let me know what you think!
Even when I’m busy I still make it a priority to plan a menu. To be honest, I’ve gone through stages in my life where I didn’t plan, and we end up eating a rather narrow menu, in addition to not using up what I’ve got in the freezer. I know I save money, too, by planning meals with what I’ve got in my house already, but mostly I like not having that 4:30 “great-what are we going to have tonight?” feeling.
So here’s the plan for this week:
Tuesday-Yellow Turkey curry* over rice, salad with oranges and almonds*
Wednesday- Slow-cooked Red beans and rice with vegetable toppings
Thursday- Slow-cooker pulled pork* in tortillas with lettuce, onions, and salsa
Saturday- Easy Homemade Pizza
Sunday- Creamy pesto pasta*, salad
