Meal Planning for the Week

August 7th, 2019 at 11:06 am

I forgot to post this on Monday. We are working on eating veggies from the garden and using up some of our beef, lamb, and pork from last year. I want to buy half a hog this year and at the least a hamburger share of beef. Usually when someone has a dairy cow that is no longer productive they will offer it as hamburger only for $200 a share and that yields a lot of ground beef. Since the cows are pretty old, using them for other cuts would not be tender at all, but it does offer up burger at a great price.

Day One:
Pesto (basil from the garden) grilled chicken, baked potatoes, fresh green beans

Day Two:
Rib steaks, baked sweet potatoes, leftover green beans

Day Three:
Grilled pork ribs, grilled patty pan squash (from the garden, grilled onions, broccoli (from the garden)

Day Four:
Meatloaf, baked potatoes, leftover veggies

Day Five:
Rigatoni with Meatballs, broccoli (from the garden)

Day Six:
BBQ chicken thighs, fried potatoes, baked zucchini

Day Seven:
Beef bottom round roast, potatoes and carrots, leftover veggies

    Inexpensive and free (from the garden) food is wonderful. :-) How do you get your broccoli to be bug free?

    I cut up and soak the broccoli in a pot of water and weigh it down with a small plate so all the broccoli is under water for half an hour. This drowns any bugs and they float to the top. It also gives any little slugs or snails a plate to attach to and crawl up so they can be taken back outside well away from the garden. Then I dump the water and fill it up again and swirl all the broccoli, dump it in a colander, spray it off, rinse out the pot, dump the broccoli back in and fill with water. Swish all the broccoli around in the water and then dump and rinse one more time.
