>Menu Week of April 18

>Another busy week last week. We had great weather last week and no thunder storms but some wind a few days. We got more outside stuff worked on and a few things even completed. I changed my menu plan a bit last week and ended up doing breakfast for dinner on Thursday and Saturday morning we had these wonderful waffles. So delicious and so easy.

This week promises to be busy again. Monday the girls are out of school and Joe will work an early shift instead of his usual 10:30AM to 7PM shift. I’m going to be gone all day on Monday to the show my support for the Wyoming Food Freedom Act (take a look at this post I did a few days ago on the Act and if you agree, would you consider signing the petition? You do not need to live in Wyoming to help us make a difference). Also on the agenda this week is working on the garden and maybe planting trees if they arrive. I have some easy meals planned by using the crock pot a couple of times and utilizing ‘planned overs’. I picked up my beef CSA order yesterday so we were able to enjoy yummy steaks tonight. What a treat!

    >OK, how to you make spicy carrot sticks? Sounds like something my family would enjoy!

    The spicy carrots are naturally pickled. They are delicious. I make a batch of them (usually 3 or 4 quarts)at a time so I have them on hand. The natural pickling method is called lacto-fermenting. I did a post showing some of my pickling (including the carrots)here
