Menu Monday 4/21

Heather says:

This week I will be picking strawberries and canning a year’s supply of strawberry jam.  If you decide to take on a big project, I highly recommend trying to bribe asking a friend if they want to get involved.  A partner can make even the most tedious task a more pleasant experience.

Tell me, what is on your menu this week?

  • Monday – Vegetable soup, grilled cheese
  • Tuesday – Taco salads with ground turkey
  • Wednesday – Beef stir fry, fried rice
  • Thursday – C.O.R.N.*
  • Friday – Blackened tilapia, strawberry salsa, spinach and strawberry salad**
  • Saturday – Pizza night, raw vegetables with dip
  • Sunday – Steak, baked potatoes, mushrooms and zucchini, grilled bell peppers

*Clean Out Refrigerator Night

    Ah, I miss picking strawberries this time of the year. No strawberry plants for me 🙁

    I do have a theme for my menu this week as well, though – It’s called the “Get Rid of That Whole Chicken in the Fridge” week!

    I can’t WAIT for the stawberries to come in up here in New England. I’m going to freeze a bunch of them.

    Can I make a suggestion? With summer coming up and the opportunity to get fresh, local veggies at good prices, have you though about doing a series on canning or freezing? I’d love to put up some fresh produce, but I don’t know how to do most of it.

    I made a nice venison roast in the crockpot yesterday for Sunday dinner…the leftovers will become a pot-pie, fajitas, & soup throughout this week. Friday, though, I may do some fish, or make a pizza for our movie night.

    I’m drooling reading about your strawberry-picking plans! Here, my rhubarb is only just poking through the ground. :o) Maybe three weeks til I can make a pie?….

    Sometimes the most simple ideas are the best. I just realised I don’t serve grilled cheese with vegie soup, but I could and should because my lot would LOVE that!

    I love the C.O.R.N. idea too. We do this for lunch each day, so there’s not usually enough for tea as well. Great idea though.
