What do I have in store this week?
Breakfast is going to be my same old, same old. Eggs or oatmeal. Both are so yummy and super easy.
Lunch is going to be - Southwestern Quinoa! Yum.
And then dinner.

I dug out the potatoes from the garden today and I wanted to have my entire week planned around potatoes. But I'll hold back, especially because I want to be able to eat these potatoes throughout the winter.

I also cooked up one of our chickens in the crockpot. This makes for the easiest dinner week. I usually cook the chicken in the crockpot with water, butter, and garlic on low for about 6 hours. Then I pull out the incredibly moist chicken, let it cool off for a bit and then pull it off the bone and remove the fat and skin. I then put the meat into containers and put it in the refrigerator for meals throughout the week and then I put all of the bones, fat, skin back into the liquid and cook on high for another 8 hours to make broth. Most of this broth went into the Sausage/Potato Soup and then I put the rest into a container in the freezer for later use.

For snacks, I cut up some kohlbabi from the garden and then made a batch of hummus. I'm honestly surprised I have any left, because as soon as Izzy spied me making the hummus, she came over with an empty bowl and spoon and demanded some.
