Southern Ontario Locavore Meal Plan Jan. 6 – 12

Meal-planning is an important part of our week.  It allows us to be more prepared and relaxed with regards to our nightly meals.  As locavores, it also makes eating locally much easier because we take the time to figure out what seasonal foods are available and how we can use them.  If you live in a similar climate (we’re in Southern Ontario, which is a pretty classic upper-midwest climate) then you should sign up for email updates or check out the facebook page or twitter feed and compare what you’re eating with us!

Yes, I’ve not posted a meal plan in over a month.  But it’s nice to have one again.  This one is a pretty classic winter meal plan, heavy on storage vegetables and foods that make me feel warm just thinking about them.

Not much has changed around here in the last month.  It has been a restful, family-filled month, with visits to both sides of our families (including an amazing visit to Mexico with my parents!).  In the midst of all the relaxation, movie watching, game playing, and of course eating, I seem to have lost some steam on blogging.  We’ll see if and when the inspiration returns.  Regardless, since we will almost always make meal plans I will continue to share those here.

Oh, and we had an ice storm.  Apparently millions of people had the same one.  Here’s our view of it:

Anyways, that kind of sums up the holidays.  Well, not really, but the point of this post was supposed to be a meal plan for this week, so here it is:

*Update, at the Kitchener Market we arrived too late for leeks.  Ah well, with some quick search engine-ing a replacement was found: Cabbage, Bacon, and Potato Soup.
