This Week’s Meal Plan 5/7 – 5/13
Last week’s vacation was wonderful! Despite having rain nearly every morning, we still had sun and dry weather every afternoon and sometimes in the late morning too. The rain was usually light and we were still able to take hikes in the rain. The kids spent most of their days outdoors – riding horses, playing with the dogs, helping Opa with a project or Oma with the horses, taking rides on Opa’s new tractor or on the four wheeler, fishing and lots of hiking! Our menu varied a bit from what I thought we might have, one night we had a wonderful walleye fish fry with oven fries along with a salad and another night we had tacos with refried beans and rice. My mom sent me home with one of the pot pies she had made and both my dad and his friend got their turkey. My dad’s friend doesn’t care too much for eating wild game, but enjoys hunting so we took home about half of it and get to try wild turkey for the first time this week.
