Meal Plan ~ March 2013 week 1

This past week our greatest culinary adventure was Squirrel Stew. I was surprised to find that it didn't taste much different than any other stew. It took a lot longer to prepare than the original recipe, when I tried to just simmer the squirrel in salted water it was tough and gamey, so I let it cook slowly in the slow cooker until the meat fell off the bones. Then I asked my husband to remove the meat from the bones because for some reason I just couldn't bring myself to do it. Which is silly because I cleaned it, seasoned it, and cooked it without a problem, but somehow pulling it apart just wasn't something I was up to. I think I'll blame it on pregnancy hormones. Since it took so much longer for our food to cook then anticipated I added precooked rice and also used up some extra mushrooms for a good earthy stew. Good, but I will probably look around for another recipe next time my hunters bring back a few squirrels.

Until Baby comes I am continuing to write up simple meal plans, knowing that the whole week could change as soon as labor arrives. I am 38 weeks and excited to meet my little one, probably a tad impatient too. I've had a few slow starts that peter away. Sigh, all in perfect time (God's time, not mine).  At least I don't have to worry about what is for dinner on top of everything else!

I am also linking up to Menu Monday: What's for Dinner

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.
