Weekly Menu Planning Help
Hi there! Long time no see! I’ve been very busy on the homestead lately! You can read about all of our current crazy projects (including the aquaponics greenhouse!) here in my State of the Farm Address!
One thing that is really important to me is cooking delicious, homemade food for my family, but with our busy homesteading, homeschooling, music and karate schedule, it is often so hard to do this. Menu planning is a lifesaver for me!
I have been very diligent lately at creating weekly menu plans that feature as many farm-fresh ingredients as possible, so I wanted to take a minute to share the plan for this week with you!

I just hope it helps to inspire you to cook for your family!

I hope you will enjoy this menu plan, and I hope to see you again very soon. As always, to keep in touch with what’s going on, feel free to join me over at my Green Eggs & Goats website!
