Meal Plan ~ March 2013 week 2

Oh my, did we enjoy some tasty meals last week! The liver with onion and cream gravy was wonderful! I keep thinking "hey I need to take a picture" but we were hungry and the food was great, so I don't have a picture to share. The BLT sandwiches were really good too. I chopped up the bacon and tomato, coated it with sour cream and added onion, garlic and cheddar cheese (kind of like a tuna salad), but again no picture. My focus last week was on my light and sporadic contractions that have thus far still not lead to labor.  It is no joke that each pregnancy is different! I did get caught up on some of my fermenting last week. I made several batches of kraut, a batch of fermented collards, fermented hummus, sweet peppers and pickles. It is nice to have my small ferment fridge fairly well stocked. Now onto this week:

As you can see this week is as simple as can be. My wonderful parents are working on building a custom cabinet in my kitchen, so my kitchen is out of commission for a day. I have a few small projects to work on around the house to try and keep from going crazy while we all wait for baby, so those things will occupy my time outside of the kitchen. Maybe I will even get a chance to work on our garden, so that I can keep my two part focus for 2013 alive and well, there is still plenty of outside work to do to get things ready to become a more sustainable urban homestead! In fact I should probably spend the next couple peaceful minutes researching reasonably priced compost to help fill our raised beds. I hope everyone has deliciously filled bellies this week!

Please note that I use whole real foods in my cooking as much as possible. I may have linked up a recipe that calls for low fat dairy or commercially processed oil, but rest assured I will be using the most traditional and natural real food products I can find instead. I use these recipes as a starting point and do my best to create something that works for my family.
