Menu Plan: 2/16-22

This week we are going to try to continue to make a dent in our 1/2 pig and 1/4 steer we ordered from a local farmer last summer.

We had become concerned about news reports related to our food supply (e coli in meats, salmonella in veggies, etc.) so we decided to get much more deliberate in choosing where we got our foods.  So we joined a CSA, buy many of our fruits and veggies from the farmers market and found a local farmer to supply us with our beef and pork.

If you are in West Michigan, I can recommend a couple of sources.  Interested in beef and pork that is mouth-wateringly good and priced very reasonably? I highly recommend contacting The Adela Rose Farm.  They also have chicken, though we haven't gotten any from them yet.  Their meats are processed at Byron Center Meats, a locally owned company with a great reputation.

Looking for a CSA?  Melody Bee Farms is again offering farm shares in 2012. They also have honey, beef, pork and chickens, though we haven't purchased any of these products from them yet.

Thursday:  Pork Milanese with side salad
Friday:  Out for dinner then going to this. I am so excited!
Saturday:  Grilled cheese sandwiches with bacon
Sunday:  Steaks with Hubs' famous "secret" marinade
Monday:  Orzo with sausage and peppers
Tuesday:  FITF (forage in the frige)
Wednesday:  FITF

What's on your menu plan this week? Any favorites that you want to share?
