This week’s real food meal plan and agenda focus on all things orange. I’ve got pumpkin and squash galore. Hopefully it will all make it’s way to the freezer this week.
Happy Halloween! Or Happy Reformation Day! However you like to look at it.
We have a busy week ahead. My husband is playing percussion for a local high school musical, so we won’t see much of him.
Hopefully everyone will be feeling ok. My toddler had some very rough nights last week with tummy aches. I’m still not totally sure what caused them. Now we’re back to trying some new foods again. Praying it goes well.
In The Kitchen.
I just wrapped up dealing with a pile of pumpkins. My husband picked up another 17 squash at the orchard yesterday. So I’ll be working my way through those when I get the chance this week. I don’t have any other big baking plans as I just don’t have time.
Kids In The Kitchen!
Don’t forget there are only a few days left to sign up for the Kids Cook Real Food ecourse. I promise, your kids will LOVE it! You will too. They will be so helpful in the kitchen in no time.
Here is our real food meal plan for the week. Hopefully I’ll be able to squeeze in a little more packing when we’re not carving pumpkins or roasting squash. We only have a few more weeks until we get possession of our new farm!!
