Meal plans and the week ahead

This is going to be a busy week. We have some fun stuff going on, though. This morning, we'll be going to the farmers markets. We'll be heading over to my in-laws' house this afternoon for a belated Father's Day celebration. Tuesday, I'm in Detroit for work. Wednesday, Kevin is going mountain biking with some buddies. Friday, we'll be going to the Silver Lake Ski Club Ski Show for the Fenton Freedom Festival with my BIL, SIL, niece, and nephews. On Saturday, Kevin is headed to Indianapolis for a boys' day with his dad, brother, and brother-in-law. My BFF Sara is flying in for the weekend, so Carson and I will be going out to Saranac in the afternoon to see her and her family. The Fenton fireworks are also on Saturday night, so if we're back in time, I'll take Carson out to the lake to see them. Lots going on, but all super fun stuff!

So I'm not really sure what I'll do in terms of extra stuff. Not sure I'll have much time for anything. If I do, I'd like to try some more lacto-fermentation. I was told there may be some local cabbage this week, so if there is, I'll pick some up to start a batch of sauerkraut. I'll also be freezing more raspberries as they ripen... at least if we continue to get more than we can eat fresh.

So here's the plan...

Sounds like a fun week! I hope you find some good cabbage. I wnat to find some too. We'll see what the market has on Tuesday.

Our fireworks are next Monday. So is our parade.

Those crab cakes sound good. I'm assuming they're the ones you've made before. I need to try more fish cakes soon :)
