Menu Planning is something (when I do it) that keeps me accountable for using the fresh fruits & vegetables we have on hand, makes sure I plan enough fruits & vegetables into each day, provides enough variety on the  menu from day to day, and helps me get supper on the table in a timely manner every evening.

That said. I think it’s high time I got back in that habit don’t you think? This week’s menu is centered largely around the produce that we received in last week’s organic produce co-op share, as well as the additional produce items I purchased at the store and the meats that I have on hand in the freezer.  This week we’ll be trying one new recipe (the ground turkey soup) and leaning heavily on many of our regular “safe” meals.
