Menu Plan Monday (and what we did this weekend!)

We had one busy weekend, here's what we've been up to:

Enjoying some of the awesome produce on sale this week (we made scones)

We took the plastic off our garden after our broccoli started blooming faster than we could eat it. We have a second garden bed, but this one really took off (the tomatoes are as tall as my 3 year old!)

We snacked on the broccoli as well because it tastes better right off the plant.

And we started a new project, I'll share more once we're done!

I did quite a bit of shopping last week for groceries, so we're using a lot of things we already have on hand this week. I'm practically out of cheese, so I'm excited to see Tillamook will be on sale at Safeway starting Wednesday (I plan to stock up).

  • Monday: Tostadas
  • Tuesday: Teriyaki Chicken with Rice and Broccoli (from the garden!)
  • Wednesday: Crockpot Chili
  • Thursday: Breakfast (it's silly and a great excuse to use up those sausages I found marked down last week)
  • Saturday: Steaks, Hashbrown casserole, veggies


  1. Great looking garden! How long do you keep it covered?

  2. Thanks! We got the plants in back in mid-April and put some plastic sheet over the top just to keep things nice and warm for the plants. This is my first year of actually having a garden (not just tomato plants) so it's exciting to see how it's going.
