Meal plans and the week ahead

We've got a really busy week this week. But its going to be fantastic!! Lots of fun things, plus we leave for Colorado at the end of the week! Woohoo!! :) So I won't be posting a weekly post next week... my next one will be on the 29th after we're back.

We're headed out to breakfast and the farmers' market with my parents this morning. Then, this afternoon we'll be heading out to Dairy Delight farm in Cohoctah Township. We'll check out the farm and then I think we'll be signing a cow share agreement for raw milk! Yeah!! I'm very excited! :) Tuesday is the last ski show of the season, so we're going to go check it out again. Wednesday is the annual Back to the Bricks car cruise (well, the entire week is Back to the Bricks, but we're just going on Wednesday). So, we'll probably head out to Grand Blanc for the evening. Thursday will be dedicated to packing and cleaning. We'll be doing some packing and cleaning throughout the week, but Thursday will be our night to wrap everything up. And we're leaving Friday mid-morning for the airport! We're so looking forward to vacation!

Last week I froze another 10 pounds of blueberries (the Jerseys are in and they're my favorite!) and used another 5 pounds for fresh eating and baking projects. I froze more beans, corn, and zucchini, too. I also dehydrated some tomatoes as part of my post tomorrow for Preserving the Summer's Bounty. And I canned some pasta sauce on Friday night. I also went to my first meeting of the local chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation. It was really cool. The speaker this month focused on heart health. I learned so much and can't wait for upcoming meetings and events!

So anyway, here's the plan... not many extras this week! I'm just trying to use up most of the perishables in the fridge this week.
