IF Chad works from home then we'll have steaks.

Lunch: Almond Butter and peach jam "tacos"....unless we have guests. In that case we'll make veggie stir fry and Ponyo Noodles with beef broth and ham and boiled eggs.

Saturday: HUGE work day at the farm. If the weather is nice, Iowa Chops on the grill, home fries, and mushroom and veggie kabobs.

All is subject to change, btw


  1. Your menu sounds great! Are handpies like little half moon pies? Those sound so good for lunches. And I've heard of pumpkin soup, but I've never tried it. Salmon is my favorite fish. I usually broil it with a maple-mustard-glaze. Super yummy!

  2. Ok, Chicken potpie is out since I roasted the rooster last night by accident. Meat is not good for pot pie. Hmmmm.....thinking thinking.
