This week’s menu…

Better late than never, right?


Ham and Beans (Crockpot)

Fresh Salad from the garden with Homemade Ranch Salad Dressing

Homemade Bread with Homemade Butter

Sloppy Joe’s on Homemade Bread

and I may try this:  Creamy Noodle Side Dish

All I do for Sloppy Joe’s (usually) is brown ground beef and onions in a skillet and add sucanat, mustard, and ketchup (homemade) taste.  I try to use a 1/2 pound of ground beef and will add some pinto beans from the the leftover Ham and Beans to stretch this recipe a litte bit. 

I have some canned Sweet Green Tomatoes we like to eat on our Sloppy Joe’s.  These are good and just another way to use up those green tomatoes at the end of the season.

I cook the hamburger ahead of time for a quick meal when I get home from work. 

Thursday we are having a rice dinner of some kind.  I just haven’t decided what yet.  I want to incorporate one meal a week without meat in it without totally freaking my dh out.  He’s a sport about the healthy/budget eating thing, so I don’t want to go overboard on him. 

We now have venison in our freezer, so we will be cooking some of it up this weekend.  I’m on a mission to make chili using venison.  Wish me luck!

I made a Kefir Smoothie this morning that was really good:

2 cups Kefir

1 banana

1 cup frozen organic mixed berries (blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries)

1 cup frozen pineapple juice (I used the leftover juice from canned pineapple and freeze it)

1 T Flax Seed Oil

1 T Coconut Oil

1 t Stevia

5-6 ice cubes

Blend and enjoy!

I usually add 1-2 T Elderberry concentrate, but forgot this morning.  At 4:30 my brain isn’t always at it’s best.

A quick request for anyone out there who knows of a good cottage cheese recipe to please send me a link or the recipe.  I have tried two failed attempts at making cottage cheese and would really like to make some over the weekend.  Thank you and have a wonderful day!

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
