What we're cooking up as this last week of school winds down

The Yellow Farmhouse Weekly Menu Plan
for May 20-26th       


Notes: Looking forward to slower mornings this week as we finish up the last bits and pieces of school. The kids want us to cook up some smashing breakfasts this week. I want to keep it simple. We're compromising.
Food wasted last week: Four hard boiled eggs shoved to the back of the fridge… from Easter. Ew. Good news is it's compostable so Its not a complete waste.... four big flaky biscuits from when we had strawberry shortcake last week... how could I miss using those? Okay- well, they're chicken feed now and that's a little bit more alright.

Something else- Drinks
 Its hot, so I'm back to making iced coffee this week. I like to make a four cup dark brew and pour it into ice cube trays and freeze. I pour regular coffee into a mason jar and keep it in the fridge... then when I'm in need, I pop a few coffee cubes in a cup and top it off with cold coffee, flavored creamer and a cute straw. Oh it's glorious, slurpy, caffeinated goodness.

I've got a lot of frozen sliced peaches in the fridge and I've started using those instead of ice cubes in my juice. Yummo! 
Plus I've even been plunking those peaches and some frozen strawberries into water to make a fruity flavored water too... which I'm lovin' lots
