WEEKLY MEAL WRAP UP x2

On a weather note.  We got some rain yesterday.  Pretty much rained/drizzle/misted all day. What a blessings.

Ok now to what we urban homesteaders have been eating.

I’ve been behind it the meal wrap up so going to combine two weeks worth in one. Though our plates our not as bleak as Laura’s in the Long Winter, our ingredient selection is limited.  You’ll notice from the menu that we are heavy on the rice, dried beans, winter squash and the occasional salad.

How our mouths water as we look over at the growing broccoli, onions, cabbage and kales.

As we combat the winter doldrums, dreaming of spring, enjoy this latest meal wrap up.

Oh love emails like this one – glad these post are such an inspiration (that’s what we are hear for!) to your life and tummy!

Okay, so I was so excited by what I just ate for dinner I had to tell someone and couldn’t think of anyone (my husband and four children won’t care), so I thought I’d send you folks an email.  I’m surrounded by several inches of freshly fallen snow here in Utah and I just ate a homegrown acorn squash cut in half, scooped and cooked, and filled with homegrown, home-canned spaghetti sauce.  It sounds weird but it was FABULOUS!!!  I’m so tickled I grew it all myself.  It’s all because how inspired I am reading your delightful blog!  So, I thank you and my tummy thanks you.

Love, Johanne
