Fall Meal Plan

My nephew Jack helping cook Thanksgiving Dinner 2016

 

I love a good meal plan!  It ensures we take advantage of what is in season, minimizes food waste and limits the number of trips to the grocery store.  Plus, having to figure out everyday around 4:oo P.M. what the heck we are going to eat never seems to end well for us.

Fall is my absolute favorite season, as I take after my Nanny who had a deep love for meat and potatoes.  On the Crow Homestead, fall starts in September as small game season begins, root veggies are harvested and the the snow is flying.  (we had snow just this week!)  We start having fires inside and we can finally do some low and slow cooking.

Fall is the season for all things brassicas: broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, kale, cabbage.  The final tomatoes will also be coming in along with potatoes, carrots and beets.  Mr. Crow starts hunting mid-September and keeps us in a steady supply of grouse, rabbits and venison….maybe this year we will even get to try some duck or woodcock (cool birds that have dark meat for their breasts and white meat for their legs).  If you do not have access to wild game you can easily replace the grouse with chicken and the rabbit with pork  and venison with beef.

Try and create a plan that works for your family’s preferences and what is in season where you live.  I hope you will be pleased to see your stress around dinner and grocery bills both reduce dramatically!  Let us know if you try any of these, too!
