Menu Plan: October 26

With the end of farmers markets in sight here in gloomy ‘ol Michigan (yes, it’s been gloomy for like 3 weeks now!), we’ll be eating as much of the summer goodness that’s left while beginning to use what I’ve preserved over the last few months. Most of the meat is from the freezer as well, finishing off what we have! (Come on honey – let’s get some venison in the freezer! Nope – no pressure here)


  • breakfast – soaked oatmeal w/maple syrup, cinnamon, raisins, butter, and raw cream
  • lunch – grilled cheese sandwiches, homemade applesauce, carrots
  • snack – celery and peanut butter
  • dinner – hamburgers on homemade spelt buns, roasted potatoes, broccoli
  • snack – yogurt smoothies
  • To Do – make milk and water kefir, bake sandwich bread, soak rice


  • breakfast – veggie/cheese omelets, yogurt w/ honey and frozen blueberries
  • lunch – spaghetti, salad
  • snack – apple, cheese
  • dinner – crockpot chicken used in a cream cheese/brown rice pasta casserole, green beans
  • To Do – can grape juice and more applesauce


Thursday: (my weekly baking day)

  • breakfast – scrambled eggs, peaches
  • lunch – tuna sandwiches, celery and carrots
  • snack – fruit, cheese
  • dinner – tacos and mexican rice
  • snack – homemade “over the stove” popcorn
  • To Do – make 2 batches of granola bars, bake muffins(x2)and zucchini bread, sandwich bread, can grape juice and/or applesauce if needed


  • breakfast – soaked oatmeal
  • lunch – hardboiled eggs, salad
  • snack – fruit
  • dinner – grilled cheese sandwiches, garlic “fries”, green beans
  • To Do – make milk and water kefir


  • breakfast – soaked pancakes, fruit
  • lunch – leftovers
  • snack – cut veggies
  • dinner – homemade gluten free pizza
  • snack – homemade raw milk ice cream
  • To Do – finish canning if needed


  • breakfast – eggs, fruit
  • lunch – chicken noodle soup
  • dinner – beef short ribs, au gratin potatoes, broccoli
  • To Do – make milk and water kefir

I also love the fact that because I buy so many whole foods in bulk (I’ll also be going to the whole foods store on Monday), that my grocery list will be rather short for this menu plan. All I need to buy for this week is milk and eggs from the farm, butter, cheese, broccoli, carrots, celery, lettuce, potatoes, and rice! Short trips to the store are always a welcome occurrence when I have to bring to littles with me!
