Weekly Menu Plan #59 ~ Wintry Dishes

Plain yogurt, maple syrup, & frozen raspberries for a quick, beautiful, delicious breakfast.
Right about now is when I start to long for late spring.  Don't get me wrong, there's so much about winter that I love, but I sure do miss all the fresh produce options that the warmer days bring.  For now, we eat more foods that are easily stored and enjoyed over the cold season.  We use more dried legumes, cold-hardy greens, potatoes, yams, meat, and rice than usual.  As special treats, we sprinkle frozen berries from the summer onto yogurt and into smoothies to hold us over.  June couldn't come soon enough; we are running low on blueberries which is a travesty for our seven-year-old who would probably live off of them if we let her.  So next year, we'll be sure to pick several pounds more and really make the annual blueberry farm trip count.

I"m sharing this at Simple Lives ThursdayMeal Plan Monday.


  1. Love the menu!! Love the pumpkin muffins and cookies!! :-) Do you pack your kids lunches with what you have listed for lunch, or do you pack something else? I have a hard time figuring out snacks that fill them up and that they will eat.
    Thank you for your site!!!!

  2. I'm so glad you like the menus. :) I'm actually going to share my lunch-packing techniques next Friday, so stay tuned. :)

  3. Great!! I can't wait! All three of my kids would never eat cookies when I made them with oats. I made these ones listed above, and all of them loved them!!! Yay!! Thank you!


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