The Rhythm Of Food

The Rhythm of Food

Fall is a busy time. Moms shuffle kids all around town to school and activities. Work projects kick into gear. Farmers are busy harvesting and storing. The cool air seems to encourage us to be “worker bees” – no matter what our work may be. As always, we try to nourish our bodies with healthy food. During these busy times, easy recipes and thoughtful plans make a big difference.

Each week I make a plan. There are some constants — Pancakes on Saturdays, oatmeal on Wednesdays, beans and rice on Mondays, soup on Thursdays, dessert nights on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I base our plan on what’s in season, workdays vs. home days, school days vs. weekends. I make a fairly detailed description of dinners for my reference, and try to create an abridged version for the kids to make every Sunday. (Breakfast, Lunch and Snacks are planned too, but more on that at another time).
