A few things we'd like to share: In addition to fresh herbs, we are still harvesting fresh jalapenos, eggplant, figs, watermelon, sweet potatoes and bell peppers from our every-shrinking small garden. The majority of items in this weeks menu are from the pantry, fridge or freezer, such as the shrimp, which was purchased several weeks ago on sale. It's very nearly crab season again and with any luck we'll be added several pounds of fresh crabmeat to the freezer too!
We anticipate a few questions regarding the recipes- you might have noticed that we didn't purchase Heavy cream this week for the alfredo sauce. Rather than spend the extra money
For those just joining our weekly menu plans, please note that we raise our own chickens for fresh eggs and are currently collecting 8-15 eggs per day, as such they are frequently incorporated into our weekly menu plans.
You'll notice that we didn't list meat in this weeks grocery expense, that's because meat isn't currently on sale and the freezer is well stocked. Search for "Meat Restocking Week" for additional details.
