Weekly Menu Plan #25

Last week was a little off-kilter for us.  I didn't make everything on our menu.  The wonderfully ironic thing about menu planning is the flexibility it brings to the kitchen.  Because complimenting ingredients were gathered ahead of time to make meals, it's easy to shuffle things around and make simpler dishes if need be.  We did make the fresh pea soup after spending twenty sweet minutes shelling peas together.  I love the conversations that come up while doing simple, sensory-filled tasks together.  It slows us down and makes room for connection.  It's where the gold is.  And the soup?  It was delicious.  My girls asked for seconds.  I think being a part of the process made it taste better.

  1. Hi Katie, I have a question. How are you modifying the Spicy Stewed Beef? It sounds so yummy bit my kids won't eat anything spicy. BTW, I love your meal plans they really help me out and give me lots of ideas. I made the Sour Cream Bake last night and it was a hit!


I value your feedback. Thanks for taking the time to share yours!
