We've had some absolutely beautiful weather the past three days, and hubs has done lots of work getting our seedlings into the garden. We are going to have serious produce!!! :)
Which is a good thing, because I've decided to try to eliminate (or at least minimize) processed foods from our diet.
Honestly, I make most of our food from scratch, so processed foods like boxed dinners, etc., do not make an appearance in our kitchen. But we DO drink a lot of sweet iced tea (hey, we live in the south) and I use Splenda. Which is highly processed.
(And it's going to be challenging to give that up.)
I *am* going to look into growing Stevia.
Also this week, ds#3 has a marvelous case of strep throat.
So I have been
So the plan for the menu looks something like this:
Sunday~ Taco salad using the romaine lettuce from our garden (ds did not eat at all)
Monday~ Breakfast for Dinner
Tuesday~ Sticky chicken, collards, baked potatoes, cornbread (never made it last week)
Wednesday~ DATE NIGHT! Hubby and I are going out - woo hoo!
Thursday~ Spaghetti & garlic bread (ds#3 is scheduled to cook, but we'll see how he feels)
Friday~ Top your own pizza night
Saturday~ TBD... probably something from the grill
I'd love to hear from any of you who are trying to use less processed foods and more whole foods in your menus.
