Thanks to my Freezer Meal Exchange Group and sometimes quadrupling recipes that I make for our breakfasts and dinners, I have a freezer full of food to eat this week! I’m very excited about that because my previously homeschooled third grader is heading to public school for the first time on Wednesday and I’m sure I will be crazy because of that.
I also have a ton of yummy veggies from my garden that I’ll be incorporating into this week’s menu: tons of tomatoes, kohlrabi, broccoli, green beans, potatoes, and cabbage! I’ll also be processing all of this yummy-ness in my water-bath and pressure canner and also be freezing some to enjoy this winter.
I’m planning an easy meal week this week as we adjust to public school life. Here’s what we’re eating:
We’re packing lunches for my daughter. I don’t think it’s the easy option, but I don’t like what they eat at public school. I’m sure she would, but I would prefer to send real food along with her. So, she’ll be taking (and we’ll also eat):
- PB & J on homemade bread
- Veggie Sticks with Ranch Dressing
- Homemade Apple Sauce
- Yogurt & Berries
- Homemade Granola
- Hard-boiled Eggs
- Homemade No Mayo Cole Slaw
Dinners ~ (served with tons of veggies from my garden)
- BLTs and Kale Salad
- Tacos with meat from my freezer
- Lemon Chicken with Broccoli from my freezer
- Crockpot Teriyaki Chicken from my Freezer Meal Exchange
- Homemade Pizza (extra dough for the freezer)
- Pork Chops, Fried Potatoes
- Kohlrabi Ham Bake
What are you eating this week? And how do you stay sane when your kids head off to school?? I’m vacillating between crying and jumping for joy. I’ll be sure to share how it goes.
