Weekly Meal Plan - June 1st Edition

Our strawberries are in full swing right now and we have been harvesting between one and two quarts a day! There is no way we can consume that many berries before they go bad so I have started to freeze them. If you have never frozen strawberries before I encourage you to give it a try! It is so easy and usually much cheaper!

Just wash and cap your berries and place them on a cookie sheet or other large tray (cover it with wax paper so it's easier to remove the berries once frozen). Freeze overnight or until the strawberries are frozen solid. Remove the berries from the cookie sheet and place them in freezer bags. That's it! You're done! Strawberries for smoothies, yogurt or whatever your little heart desires!

Here's what we will be eating after we stuff ourselves with strawberries...

In case you haven't noticed by now, I have a thing for southwest food. In other words, I love it! Not many weeks go by without it showing up on the menu. It's usually a pretty frugal option thanks to the beans and rice. win. 

What's on your menu this week? Trying anything new?
