TGIF

Okay, last day I am going to do this recalling what we ate, EVER!

I am so not good at keeping track of things, especially in the summer when life and work are both crazy.

But it was a good try, don’t you think?!

Let’s see what I remember:

Breakfast:

Avery had Goat Milk Yogurt with strawberries and crumbled up home-made granola

Van had ? Maybe an apple, can’t recall.

Shane had ? Scrambled eggs? Almond Flour Biscuits? Both? Probably both.

I made Egg Salad for lunch but ended up eating it for breakfast, too. Accompanied by a yummy heirloom tomato.

(Egg Salad = 10 hard boiled eggs, home-made mayo, salt and pepper.)

Lunch:

Shane had egg salad and leftover meatballs. Not mixed together. :)

I had mixed greens with dijon vinegar dressing, heirloom tomatoes and egg salad on top.

Kids were at camp where they were having a Pizza Party. I sent them with an Amy’s Organic Pizza. Not the best option, but a better option.

(Our schools know how we feel about food and they are super cool about letting us know in advance when there is something going on so we can send our own food/treats.)

Dinner: This is where it gets YUMMY!!!

Well, not yet.

Kids had nachos: Grass Fed beef on organic blue corn chips with Raw Goat Milk Cheddar on top.

We had Soup!

Remember that bone broth you slaved away making earlier in the week? Here is what you can do with it!

Start with veggies: Onions, Carrots, Collard greens, and Sweet Peppers

Sauté in Coconut oil until tender

Then add broth. As much or as little as you want.

I also added about a tablespoon of fresh grated ginger.

Our broth is so rich and flavorful it really did not need much other seasoning, but you could add salt and pepper to taste, if you want. Or not. Whatever!

That’s what I’m talking about!!

I have no idea what anything cost, but whatever it was, it was worth it, and it really was not much.

We ate so good this week. All home made. All fresh.

Except that *&(^$ Pizza, but it happens!

  1. That looks delicious!! We got a huge bounty from a co-op farm Friday and have so enjoyed eating from it. Squash, eggplant, tomatoes, potatoes, garlic, cukes, onions, okra, and peppers. This soup would be a great way to use some of next week’s basket.

    Yes! We love soup and it is the perfect way to use your veggies! I pretty much throw in anything that either is about to go bad, or sounds good together.
    Today for lunch it was onions, peppers, carrots and baby bok choy!
    Eggplant, okra and tomatoes is one of my most favorite combos!
