Menu Plan Monday and Garden Update: 8/11-8/17

Well, it's Monday again. I don't know about you, but the past week seemed to fly.

It was a busy week for me - Kiddo and I spent a couple days at my parents' house. It was a good visit. We enjoyed smiley face pancakes {affiliate link} for breakfast, took the dog for a walk in the park, visited the farm for some ice cream, and did a major organizing project (while Kiddo napped). Unfortunately, it was a spur-of-the-moment decision and I don't have any pictures of the before. It's amazing what several hours of organizing can do!

Then I came home in time on Thursday to have a very dear friend over for lunch. We tried Ashley's Zucchini Crab Cakes (without any actual crab) and they were delicious!
We rounded out the weekend by preparing our flock of broilers for the freezer and canning tomatoes and green beans. Quite frankly, I'm pooped. :)

Garden Update:

This week we picked some good stuff:
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Green Beans
  • Peppers (Green Bell, Sweet Banana, and Hungarian Wax)
  • Zucchini
  • Yellow Squash
  • Blueberries
  • Potatoes!! (First of the season)
Our first potatoes ever, and we have more to come! :)

So, that's about it for this week. What have you been up to?


  1. Sounds like your garden is really producing for you! Nice that you were able to spend some time with your family. Found your blog from OrgJunkie and wanted to stop by and say hello! Now following your social medias!

  2. I ALWAYS make sure to read your blog and never miss a Monday with your meal planning - starting to meal plan better because of you! Great harvest bounty!

    1. Thanks for the encouragement, Kel! I was SO not feeling like making a menu plan Sunday night and I was seriously considering taking a break for a few weeks. Your kind words keep me going. :)

  3. Yay! I'm so excited you love the Zucchini Crab Cakes. I always love seeing your menus. You give me inspiration to *try* to meal plan.

    Thanks for sharing on Show-Licious!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Ashley!
      I should write a post on why I meal plan and how I started. It really has helped my days to run more smoothly and blogging about it keeps me accountable. :)
