Weekend Update & Weekly Menu Plan {nourishing traditions} #1

I survived (& am still surviving) my first few days of cooking every.single.thing. from scratch with whole, real, organic, pastured, grass-fed, raw, food.

Here’s a little photo list of my successes…

{1/2 Gallon Shredded Chicken & 2 Gallons Chicken Stock* from Pastured Chickens}

{Water Kefir & Dairy Kefir Grains successfully re-hydrated & ready for our first batches of water kefir & dairy kefir}

{Trail Mix* & Kishk Granola*}

{Carob Chips*}

{Creme Fraiche*}

I did have a couple of failures, one being that my yogurt starter did not re-hydrate properly from the culture I purchased so I am trying it again today. I think that my kitchen was just too hot this weekend from all the cooking I was doing & it may have killed the culture. However, I’m not letting it get me down & I’m pushing forward into our first week of nutritious & delicious meals & snacks. 🙂

Here’s my family’s Menu for the week…
