It seems as though we are on the other side of this thing after some much-needed rest time. Now I play catch up as extra loads of laundry go on the line, school books are cracked just a bit longer every day, and that fall garden gets planted one row at a time.

But while we were recovering I was still writing about some of my favorite topics. I’m so woefully behind that you’ll be seeing another post just like this going up with another round of links.

First up let’s talk about menu planning. Once I started eating seasonally I had to change the way I planned our meals (you know, around all of that stuff coming from the market or garden). Thankfully Plan to Eat has a feature that helps you do exactly that – plan your meals according to what you have, not what you need to buy at the store.
