MPM 3/21

My poor brain is in overdrive these days. 

Lots of things to think about.

Organic - is it worth it?  Are there things that are touted as "organic" just to be on the organic bandwagon, but completely not worth it?  Things like bananas - what's the point, you don't eat the peel, or is there a difference?  Or milk - is organic milk worth the $6 per gallon price tag?  With the rising cost of food anyways, is it really worth taking on the organic sticker shock?

I'm trying to do what is best for my family, but really, what is that?  I have eliminated a ton of processed foods from our diet, but I just feel like I need to ramp it up.  So we're discussing purchasing a side of beef from a local farm.  I'm pretty sure that we will be doing that here pretty quickly, but there is still so much to discuss...what cuts do we want, etc.  I'm trying to come up with all the questions and answers we need so that we don't rush into this blindly.

That really is just scratching the surface.  There is a lot more plaguing my brain, but this post is supposed to be about my menu for the week, not my headache.  I'll save it for another post.

Since my family feels that feeding them is a requirement, here's the plan for the week.  We'll see how well we stick to it...

Monday - Tomato Soup with rice
Tuesday - Red Beans and Rice
Wednesday - Breakfast for dinner
Thursday - Leftovers/FFA
Friday - Homemade Pizza
Saturday - Stroganoff
Sunday - Three Meat Stromboli

What are you eating this week?  Check out to see what's being served in other kitchens!

  1. We are in the same place as you. I have been buying more organic lately. Especially dairy. We have just started buying beef from a farm.
