We’ve been trying to learn to eat more fish around here to go along with our cow, chicken, deer and lamb.
Last week we tried salmon patties and shrimp. Matt actually was the one who experimented with the shrimp because I seriously had no idea what to do with it. It was so delicious I thought I might fall over. All the boys thought so to, and the stuff was gone in five minutes.
It’s the perfect time to get fishy. Tis the season for fish to be on sale.
This week we’ll be eating catfish and pollock. And maybe more shrimp because that stuff was seriously SO GOOD.

Now…let’s talk about the blogging menu for this week.
First…you need to know that VERY SOON I will be telling you about an amazing giveaway I’m doing for an iPod Touch!!!!! Seriously!! Come back and check for details!!!
Next…you need to know that this week’s posts will be called, “The Week of Repeats”. I am working on several projects (one or two of which I can reveal to you this week)…and I’m doing some extra writing (the deadlines for said writing are fast approaching)…and the boys in my life still want food.
Instead of posting as normal…I’ll be pulling some of my favorites from the archives and re-posting them for you. Sorry if you find that boring. If you’re too bored…please come over and fold my laundry.
But there’s nothing boring about an iPod Touch giveaway…so if for no other reason…you must stop back by this week to find out how to enter!
Oh, and Gratituesday will carry on as normal this week…because I’m NOT too busy to take time to be grateful!! :)
Thanks for understanding…and I will make it up to you NEXT week by finally posting about how I make mozzarella cheese. How does that sound?

Hi! It's me, Jen says
Very tasty week you have planned :-) I just bookmarked your giant breakfast cookies, can’t wait to try those out on the kiddoes.
Hope your week is productive for your writing, I will enjoy the reruns, I’m sure!
“It’s the perfect time to get fishy.” Yeah! Just yesterday my hubby and three year old sonbrought home their first trout of the season which added some great yumminess to our dinner.

You *make* your mozzarella cheese???? I can’t wait to find out how! :)
Ohh, we love fish down here in Louisiana! Shrimp is my favorite “quick” meal because they are wonderful sauteed in butter, garlic & herbs and served with pasta…just cook until pink. I’m still trying to experiment with other fish (instead of fried catfish) and I’ve had a salmon in the freezer for who knows how long while I work up the courage to fix it…give me the canned stuff anyday but a fillet and I’m stumped.
Yay for mozzarella cheese! I remember you promised that!
I have REALLY wanted an iPod touch since they came out so I enter every iPod touch giveaway I find. In other words, I will definitely stop back by this week to find out how to enter. ;)
Sounds good to me! I’m new here, so I don’t mind repeats that are new to me. :)
Can’t wait for the cheese post!
I am totally going to try modifying your breakfast cookie recipe at my house. My son has food allergies so the eggs will need to be changed to apple sauce, but I think I can pull it off. Mmm yummy.
You mean if we’re good, we’ll get the mozz. cheese recipe??? WOO Hoo! ;-)
I’ve been waiting for this since I started coming to your blog almost a year ago!!! :-) …Yippee!
Your menu sounds great. I want to try the Breakfast cookies and can’t wait for the mozzarella cheese recipe!
The Things We Do says
You know I’ve been following your blog for quite some time (I’m the Legacy Prayer Journals gal) and I also have a cooking blog (www.whatscooking4us.blogspot.com) and I’ve recently started reading the book Nourishing Traditions. You seem to do a lot of the things I’m reading in that book so I was wondering if that is where you’ve gotten your eating healthy from or if there are other books or other ways you’ve come to eating healthy like this?
And my second question, I know you drink raw milk, do you also buy raw cheese? I too am anxious to hear about making the mozzarella cheese because I’ve seen that a few times on other blogs but it looked labor and time intensive.
You’ve got me switched over to shopping through Azure Standard now (thank you by the way because I love it and have been debating it for years and you’re the one that finally got me to take the plunge and try it) so I guess I’m just trying to figure out if purchasing raw cheese is as important as some say.
Thanks for reading my long comment. =0) OH and thanks for the input about Zencart…we are working on getting ours up and running so that LPJ can be downloadable soon. I appreciate your blogging mentorship my sister in Christ! =0)
Great looking menu, Laura! :D I’m interesed in your cheese making, too. It sounds like fun and I’ve heard there is nothing like homemade mozzerella!

I happen to love shrimp. In fact, shrimp is the seafood that introduced me to the fish family. Before shrimp I wouldn’t touch fish. My favorite way to eat shrimp is in a stirfry served with rice. Yum.
I am so excited about the cheese!!!! I cannot wait!!!! Also, we just started to incorporate fish this past week. When I made salmon, Hadley asked what it was and I told her it was fish. She said, “mommy, we don’t eat fish, we only eat good food.” She did end up loving it and even ate a whole piece of talapia later in the week!

I really enjoy your blog. I made your beefy enchilada bake the other night and we really enjoyed it.
I have a recipe for salmon that I’d like to share with you.
thaw the salmon in warm water. Cook your salmon fillets in a skillet about 5 minutes on each side. Be careful not to let it get dryed out, I add a little water and a lid to keep it moist. While it’s cooking mix blueberry jam and BBQ sauce together in a small bowl. Use about twice as much jam as BBQ sauce. Once the salmon is almost done, add the jam mixture and spread it around on top of the salmon. If it’s to hot it will get runny and all run off (which coats the underside but also looses a lot in the pan). Serve. My family loves this recipe, I hope yours does too.
