My Weekly Meal Plan

Simply Scheduled

It was so nice to spend a weekend at home. Ryan and the boys had scouting for food Saturday morning but it didn't take long they were able to go pick up our Bountiful Basket. I had seen dragon fruit before but we had never tried it. I thought it was pretty good not super flavorful, reminded me a lot of kiwi only a more mild flavor. We added it to our Mango Salsa with dinner it went well with it.

Dragon Fruit

We worked in the yard. Got the garden tilled up and amended the soil. We are hoping our garden will be much improved this year.  Peas and Kale and some lettuces will be planted withing the next week or two. I think I'm even going to try planting a few cabbage seeds outside soon and see how they do. I have always started them indoors first but I know they are pretty cold hearty so I'm going to give it a try. Not sure it it will work.

Next I will plant onions, carrots, beets, and beans. Then once danger of frost is past I will do tomatoes, peppers, squash, basil and whatever else we think we want.  I'm so excited for planting season.....actually what I'm really excited for is eating fresh picked yummy things from our garden again! There is just something to be said for GARDENING.

The kids seemed to be a bit congested this week like they all have a bit of a cold. But they are about better now. I have been impressed with how well they have done this year. We didn't have any sickness all winter except for a little cold here and there. None of the stomach flu that was going around or the strep or anything like that.

Homemade Elderberry Syrup
I'm so grateful. I feel like having Elderberry Syrup on hand and having them take it all winter really helps. We have done that for a couple of years now and I just wish I had done it sooner. I also feel like as they get older they all have more developed immune systems and things just don't get them down as easy.

THE BODY SEEMS TO WORK WELL WHEN GIVEN THE CHANCE. Each child is different and some of my definitely seemed to have a stronger immune system at a younger age then some of my other children. But I really feel like if instead of running for a drug of something to stop symptoms every time they start......that helping support the immune system with healing herbs and foods really helps it to develop into good strong system that helps protect you from disease.

Obviously there can be exceptions and each person is different, but my experience has been that when given the chance NATURE WORKS! Having good health is just so important to me I feel I can't truly be who I need to be if I don't feel good.

Okay sorry a bit of a ramble but speaking of health here is our menu of healthy dinners for this week.

Great plan. Do you get things like the dragon fruit in your Bountiful Basket often? I have thought about signing up for it but wasn't sure of the quality of items received.

Nicky: There is often something different but not always. It was a first for dragon fruit. The thing I like about bountiful baskets it that you aren't committed. You order each week if you want to go pick yours up if you don't want it one week you just don't order.
