Menu Plan Week of June 16

Sprouted LentilsI have a confession to make. I have been avoiding going to the grocery store. For several weeks now I’ve only stopped by the market when absolutely necessary and only to pick up things that I think we can’t live without. Usually that is fresh produce but even that has been sparser than it probably should. I keep hoping one day I’ll go out and the garden will miraculously be large and lush and we’ll have all of our produce needs answered. ­čśë

Okay, I don’t really hope that but it sure would be nice. ┬áTruth is, we’ve been eating a lot from our freezer and pantry so haven’t needed to go in to the store as much. We have a good amount of bulk purchased, canned, frozen and dehydrated things that I put up last fall that we should use up. ┬áThe problem with using these things instead of going and buying stuff is it requires me to be creative in order to figure out how to use these up. ┬áAnd someday’s I’m not feeling as creative as I should! This week I’m going to focus on using dehydrated fruits and veggies so we might have some interesting items. ┬áMy menu plan is rather loose to reflect that. ┬áWe will be enjoying lentils again this week (see last week’s menu plan here). I’ve been working on some new lentil information so I see lots of lentils in our future until I finish that project. ┬áThis week I’ll sprout them. Sprouting them gives the lentils a different flavor and consistency making them not seem as much ┬álike a repeat.
