Farm Eats: April 23rd – April 28th

Happy Meal Prep Sunday y’all! 
The weather in Minnesota has been absolutely gorgeous this weekend. The Farmer & I are feeling so blessed to be sitting OUTSIDE enjoying some afternoon cocktails & passing the time together. We’ve officially entered Spring which means our Weber Smokey Mountain is back in business! During the Spring & Summer months if we’re home, we’re smoking – keep an eye out for some killer smoker style recipes coming soon, including our recipe for Dragon Turds, a farmhouse favorite! 
Anywho – 
Here’s what I’m making this morning to make life a bit easier during the work week:
  • One dozen hard boiled eggs 
  • One day worth of Chia Pudding
  • One day worth of Overnight Oats 
  • Smoker Goodies; courtesy of The Farmer: 
    • Dragon Turds (Jalapeños stuffed with Beef Chorizo; wrapped in Jalapeño Bacon)
    • Chicken Thighs 
Now onto this week’s menu plan:

  • Lunch: Salad loaded with Veggies 
  • Dinner: Tandoori Chicken with roasted potatoes & asparagus

There you have it, another week in the books! I feel like every Sunday as I’m writing this post I find myself saying, HOW IS IT ALREADY SUNDAY AGAIN? Sigh; it’s the little things though, enjoying coffee with The Farmer on the weekend mornings in our nook, afternoon cocktails on the front patio & snuggles on the couch in the evenings. Taking those few precious moments together to slow down & just relax – that’s what the weekends are all about. Of course, they’re also about meal prep meal prep meal prep – but once that’s all done take some time to relax & enjoy your family, it’ll be Monday before you know it!
Until next time… 

 

Bon Appetit!
