On The Menu This Week (5-6 to 5-12)

For the last several years I have challenged myself to focus on using from my pantry and shop less for a couple months each winter... a Pantry Challenge.  With the end of February, this year's pantry challenge is complete but I have really enjoyed having a basic menu plan to guide me.  This year I decided to continue to make a month long menu, and be intentional about using garden produce and preserves from last season.

If you are interested in joining me check out my Pantry Challenge post to get an idea of how to get started.  Here is what is what I came up with for this week...

Smoked Beef Brisket & veggies
Dill Soup - a family recipe of my husbands'. It's somewhat like a potato soup.  I'll have to purchase potatoes from the store since I'm out of garden potatoes.
Baked Turkey & Sweet Potato Apple Bake

Rhubarb bread - Fresh picked rhubarb
Rhubarb Strawberry Smoothies - fresh picked rhubarb & store strawberries

Since it is rhubarb season right now, I'd love to hear your favorite way to use rhubarb! :)  I'd love some inspiration. ;)

Happy Garden Eating! :)


  1. I was just reading an interview where the topic was rhubarb. The article includes some recipes.

    1. Thanks Sara. Looks like a couple of interesting recipes. I was especially intrigued by the Rhubarb Curd. :)


I would love to hear your gardening comments and/or questions.
