Meal Menu this last week of June

The Yellow Farmhouse Weekly Menu Plan
for June 24th thru 30th  


Notes: 
Oh wow, June has just tallied it's days right up in rip-roaring time 'round here. Our chickens continue to lay those cutesy little pullet eggs, we’re averaging 2-3 a day (we have 8 chickens).  
New recipe update from last week: We had this foil packet recipe and it was delicious! It's definitely a keeper. Recipe tweaks: added sliced mushrooms.
On Saturday we had this- and it was okay. The thing was the recipe says to bake for 10-12 minutes and it took almost 20 for the eggs to begin to set. And it's best to make sure your mushroom caps are a bit concave, with my first effort- the egg slide right off the cap! I think it's easier to add chopped mushrooms to my scrambled eggs.
From the Farmers Market: 2 yellow zucchini, 2 green zucchini, 2 cucumbers, 2 big red greenhouse tomatoes, 2 yellow tomatoes, 1 dozen farm fresh eggs and 1 lb. straight from the farm honey.
Food wasted last week: 4 limes to compost. 1/3 loaf of homemade bread went to the chickens. Two spoonfuls of a cheesy dip got shoved to the back of the fridge and only recently found. ew.
