This week is back-to-school in our household, and I thought it would be nice to have a couple of the kids’ favorites. While on vacation, we used a couple pounds of our Morris Grass-fed ground beef for tacos and sloppy joes, and I think I will bring those items back this week. Maybe a large batch of sloppy joes so I can tuck some away in the freezer for later!
Our box from Two Small Farms contained many staple items this week, which allows me a lot of flexibility in menu planning. In addition to a bag with Garlic and mixed Onions, we also found Tomatoes, Strawberries, Green Onions, Carrots, Potatoes and Cabbage. I managed to score an extra cabbage (or two), so I will be putting up a batch of sauerkraut today. It needs a couple weeks to sit and meld before I can make my favorite Pork Chops and Sauerkraut.
Here is my menu plan for the week of August 23:
Monday: Sloppy Joes, carrot sticks, special first-day-of-school dessert treat
Wednesday: Roasted carrot soup, corn bread muffins, sliced tomatoes
Thursday: Tacos with a Rancho Gordo Bean Pot, chopped tomatoes
Friday: Movie night and takeout
What is on your menu plan this week? Any special back-to-school favorites?
