My Yummy Local Life

{November 11, 2012}   This weeks (and next weeks) menu


Lots of food going on this week, trying to use up some of the stuff in my freezer and refrigerator.

Leftover stew from Sue tonight, and also getting a pizza from earth fare (only $6!)

The general plan for this week:
BBQ pork Sammies (got some fococcia and a cibatta roll to put it on)- BBQ courtesy of my swap with Bridget

Beans and rice- beans in the crock pot. Making this in honor of our last week of the Dave Ramsey FPU class.

Pumpkin ricotta ravioli- this will use up the won tons in the fridge. Also I have about a half a jar of opened pumpkin to use. I’m thinking of toasting them in brown butter.

Sweet potato quesadillas- one of my go to meals- and I have wraps and sweet potatoes that do not want to move to AZ.

Spaghetti with meat sauce that I found in the freezer

Might work a little further down this list if I need to. We’ll see!


{September 30, 2012}   Menu this week (boy-less meals)

So sorry to not post yesterday but I did not go to the farmers market this week. I know. Shocking! But I was out of town at a marriage retreat so it didn’t happen. So this week the hubby will be gone Tuesday through Sunday working so essentially I have to fend for myself all week. This makes the grocery list short (and cheap), here is my menu board.


It’s bound to be yummy even if its simple. My ducks are laying eggs now so I can rely on eggs for protein! Also this batch of ginger ale is AMAZING and we only exploded one bottle this time around 😉

{September 2, 2012}   Menu this week!

It’s going to be another long yet delicious week. Here’s the menu plan:


Mushroom stroganoff- This is exactly like beef stroganoff but sans beef and with extra mushrooms added
Stir Fry with Tofu- another staple in our house, its just so easy to toss stuff together in a wok!
Pad Thai- one of our many go-to meals
Calzones- Pepperoni and cheese and tomatoes, oh my!
Pulled pork wontons- I am making this one up on the fly, but basically its going to be pulled pork with some veggies cooked in a wonton wrapper. Maybe some bbq-ish sauce for dipping…
Black Bean Tostados- Now that I have figured out making my own corn tortillas, these are quickly becoming another staple
Sweet potato and camembert quesadillas- adapted from the recipe at AnimalVegetableMiracle.Com

What yummy things are you making this week?
