Menu Plan: February 20 - February 26

We are now in the weeks counting down to Lent. It's been a longer break between Christmas and Lent this year than it has been in the recent past. We're still whittling down our freezer and pantry. We're working on defrosting and reorganizing our freezers as well. We used to have an inventory of everything that was in each freezer, but let that lapse after we moved. I've been meaning to get that taken care of for a longer time than I'd care to admit. So, in the next couple weekends, we plan on tackling that, along with more work getting the garden ready. It's butchering time, too. So, things are just a little busy here.

Amira is busy counting down to her birthday, which is the second day of Lent. Her birthday is the last possible date for Ash Wednesday in any year. However, she has figured that in two years her birthday will fall on a Sunday so everyone will be able to break the fast with her. Elijah's birthday is already a feast day and there is a party scheduled for that day this year with our homeschool co-op, so he'll get that, too.

Since Rich actually has Monday off, we will be having a bigger family breakfast. He so rarely gets to eat a real breakfast anyway, let alone with us. It's usually something he packs to eat at some point at work. He's also been pretty sick with a cold this past week, so having a three day weekend to recuperate was not a bad thing. We haven't gotten a lot of the things we wanted to do finished this weekend, but all of us who were fighting the cold or who had it, got a lot of rest and fresh air.What is on your menu this week? If you want a recipe, ask and I will provide it as soon as I can. If there are any starred recipes, I will follow up separately with a weekly recipe round up on Saturday.


Blackberries (frozen from Azure Standard)
