Happy Monday! I had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. I made a chocolate cake to bring to my Mother in law along with a BIG bowl of sliced strawberries from our garden. It was a nice day despite the bit of rain we had in the morning (which the garden loved!) For dinner, my husband grilled some chicken, and the boys made baked potatoes and salad, with lettuce picked from the garden. I taught my younger son how to pick the older leaves and leave the rest of the lettuce plants. He's now an experience lettuce picker! :) Sorry, no pictures to share, but it was enjoyed by all!
This week I'll be continuing to incorporate more of our garden produce into our meals. This week I'll have lettuce, snow peas, and broccoli for our meals. Here's what I'm planning for our dinners this week!
Monday: Chicken lo mein with broccoli, snow peas, and carrots
Tuesday: Pasta with rapini and cannellini beans
Wednesday: Bean, cheese, and rice burritos. I'll be making a big batch of refried beans in the crockpot - some for this dinner, some for another dinner.
Thursday: Sausage and Rice casserole, salad
Friday: Homemade pizza night - one with ham/pineapple/onions, the other undecided at the moment, we'll see what we get in our farm share this week.
Saturday: Black beans, greens (whatever we get from the farm), and mushroom enchiladas
Sunday: Leftover night
