We took the kids strawberry picking on Sunday so this week will be full of processing the strawberries. I plan to make 3 batches of strawberry jam, one batch of strawberry syrup, hopefully two batches of triple berry jam, and put at least 6 quarts into the freezer. Of course, the kids plan to eat as many as possible so we will see who wins.
We still don't have much chicken in the house since the freezers are too full and we are working on turning the beef bones into bone broth this week as well. Hopefully next week I'll be able to get the suet processed. Not quite sure what we will do with it yet. We may just turn it into bird food.
Still working on a few dietary changes, at least for me. I'm hoping to bring the rest of the family along slowly. Certain folks are probably not completely ready but most of the kids are young enough to not protest at all. I really hope to get back to making our own bread next week. If not, I need to verify that a locally sourced brand is truly ok to eat. Yup, changing the way we are thinking a bit.
The hopeful meal plan this week is as follows:
M: blueberry muffins (B), soup (L), pulled pork, coleslaw, potato salad (D)
T: eggs (B), ham or turkey sandwiches (L), taco soup, corn bread (D)
W: yogurt, granola (B), leftovers (L), pork chops, broccoli, potatoes (D)
T: breakfast casserole (B), sandwiches/leftovers (D), creamy salsa chicken (D)
F: cereal (B), sandwiches (L), cheesy bean dip, veggies (D)
S: waffles (B), pizza (D)
