A Season Without Menu Plans

Menu Plan Week of March 31- homespunoasis.com

I am a huge fan of menu planning. I truly believe that planning a weekly menu is the best way for us to keep our food budget under control. For a long time I posted our menu each week which helped even more with the accountability of sticking to the plan. In my mind […]

Almond Meal Pudding

Hello from Texas!

We are so happy to have a few days to rest and recuperate enjoying each other’s company before heading west. We’ve had a nice visit with some friends who live part of the year in Wyoming near where we are building our cabin. We were pretty excited to find out they live […]

I often find myself singing or humming part of a tune that fits the circumstances. We’ve been in Oklahoma for the last several months and many times the song “Oklahoma!” comes out of my mouth. My husband is often singing “You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma” or “Living on Tulsa Time“.

This week the […]

Menu Plan Monday ~ It’s back!

In my early days of blogging I posted a menu almost every Monday. This menu served two purposes: ideas for you and a great way to keep me on track.

When I stopped posting the menu I would *sometimes* type one out in a word document or […]

Just over two weeks ago my sister lost her dear husband. My niece lost her father. My husband lost his cousin. My children lost their uncle. We are still in mourning and shock over this death.

My sister was married for almost 24 years. At the wedding I acted as Maid of Honor. One of […]

What an exciting weekend! We spent the weekend up at our property. This was the BIG weekend of starting the cabin build!

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 June 15

Sprouted Lentils

This week we’re still focusing on eating out of our food storage and enjoying the few items we produce ourselves. Our freezer is emptying out rather quickly which is normal for this time of year. We stock it up in the fall during hunting season and when processing chickens and ducks. At this point we […]

Menu Week of June 8

The last few weeks have been pretty busy and I’ve neglected sharing our menu plans. I’m still putting together a plan, scratched out on a slip of recycled paper or an old envelope. We’re being somewhat careful with our money right now since we’re building a cabin on our new property so the bulk of […]

Snow on Mother’s Day! Yep. It wasn’t enough to stick around but it did snow off and on all day and was cold. Definitely a day to stay inside. Joe and I worked on our permaculture class and had a fairly quiet day. Overnight, the snow continued and we did wake up to a couple […]

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 […]

Spring is on the horizon. We’re still waking up to snow some mornings but many of the days are quite nice. This weekend we started tomatoes, broccoli, cabbage, pumpkin and jalapenos in the house. Joe also planted peas in the garden and got lots of the areas ready for planting when it’s time. Last weekend […]
