Meal Plan Monday Post

Happy May! Yesterday May brought some lingering April showers but some gorgeous sunshine. We spent Saturday in the yard doing some prep work for our upcoming landscaping project. We only have one room to paint in the house but we're putting that on hold so we can have the yard looking just as good as the house. Lots of cooking this week and lots of salads! We're trying to incorporate more plant-based, whole foods into our diets and pondering a vegetarian lifestyle. I also had a successful adventure out to the state farmers market. NC strawberries are coming in by the truckload and I brought us a flat home to dabble in strawberry jam making. Meal plan is below!

One other notable kitchen experiment from the week was making everything from scratch for breakfast one morning - homemade strawberry jam, butter, and bread. Two of the three were hits so that's not bad! As Patrick was consoling my dumpy bread loaf he reassured me that it's not my fault I just don't have the magic touch for getting bread to rise!
