Menu Week of June 22

Creamy Black Bean Soup

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We had great weather and were able to do many things outside that we’d been putting off like cleaning out the goat pen. 😉 It’s an exciting life around here sometimes.

Last week’s menu worked out super well and we had several great dishes. Including Spicy North […]

Menu Week of April 13 & April 20

Eggs

We had some excitement over the weekend. Our Peanut goat had kids. She had them around 8 Saturday morning. I was outside getting my dog that escaped from the backyard when I heard Peanut making noise. I looked over and could see that one of the babes was part way out. I got the dog […]

Creamy Black Bean Soup

Creamy Black Bean Soup

This is a family favorite. The recipe is based off of Black Bean Soup in Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon (that’s an affiliate link and additional affiliate links may follow).

One thing I love about this soup is that it’s the perfect way to use up the last of the beans. You know how at […]

Menu Week of November 10

Black Beans

Sunday afternoon I had a little time to myself. Joe and Christopher went in to town to do a couple of errands and pick up Lulu from a friend’s. Kiki was at work. It is quite rare for me to have the entire house to myself. I took advantage of it by watching a show […]

Menu Plan Week of October 21

Caliente

Last week I was feeling under the weather and didn’t get a menu plan put together. In fact, I was feeling so bad that Joe and the girls took over kitchen duties for a few days. They were happy we had a few quick to prepare foods on hand.

After I started feeling better we […]

Menu Plan Week of September 8

Black Beans

It’s been several weeks since I posted a menu plan. Not only have I not posted a plan, but I haven’t really been making menu plans.

I did make a plan when we went up to our new property over Labor Day. I kind of had to since we have to take any food with […]

Menu Plan Week of August 18 & Challenge Update

Last week I didn’t really put a menu plan together. Not putting a menu plan together actually worked pretty well. BUT not well enough that I’m comfortable winging it this also! So I’m putting together a loose menu plan for main dishes. We should have a few things ripen in the garden this week to […]

Menu Plan Week of June 23

Making bread

This week promises to be busy and exciting. We are adding some new members to our little place. I’ll share more about that when they arrive. We have also had a secret ‘project’ of sorts that we’ve been pursuing which should finish up this week. And we’ll have the usual summer busy items including getting […]

Black Beans: Cooking and Favorite Meals

Black Beans

You may know that I have a slight obsession with beans. Beans are a wonderfully frugal whole food, they have an excellent nutritional profile, and are extremely versatile. There are hundreds of varieties of beans/legumes available which really helps keep things interesting. Beans also make an excellent addition to your food storage.

For ease of […]

Menu Plan Week of April 14

Late March Snow Ducks

Snow Ducks!

I love spring in Wyoming! We are finally getting some precipitation which is wonderful. I am very much looking forward to green grass soon. Of course, the precipitation is in the form of snow. On Tuesday we had around a foot in the yard. However with the wind we did have a […]

Menu Plan Week of April 7

Black Beans

My little boy shared his cold with me. Joe took over all of the cooking duties over the weekend while I took it easy. I’m still feeling pretty blah. I’ve made a very basic menu plan for the week. You’ll notice there are no veggies in the plan. I was sick on my usual town […]

Menu Plan Week of February 10

Menu Plan February 10

I’m very excited! I’m on the home stretch for getting all of the tax stuff together and off to the CPA for my bookkeeping job. It is always a good feeling to be done with that and have it passed on to the CPA for her to do her thing.

My husband is going […]

Food Plan Week of January 20

The previous couple of weeks I’ve shared our menu plan after the fact. What we planned to eat and what we actually ate. And I had fully intended to do that again for this week. BUT… my week sort of fell apart. I usually make new menu plan on Sunday but last Sunday we had […]

Menu Plan Week of November 11

fall_on_the_prairie2

It is quite cold here! We had snow and single digit temperatures over the weekend. I think it is supposed to warm up later in the week.

Last week’s menu plan kind of fell apart. Christopher came down with a flu bug Sunday night. He was sick all day Monday which meant my day was […]

This week started very fun! On Sunday Joe and I got up at 4AM to go archery deer hunting. Well, Joe was hunting I just went along. He took me to a place he had found while I was in Oregon. It is a little over an hour from home and absolutely beautiful there. We […]
