Meal Plans Week of 5-19-13

Sunday already?  Somehow last week went by very quickly.  I guess that happens when you stay busy.  This week should be fairly low key.  Just the way I like it 🙂

Only two more days of preschool and then it’s summer break.  It’s time to do some brainstorming for summer activities.

This week we have another speech therapy appointment.  It’s been a couple months since we’ve been there.  And Rebecca is doing quite a bit better with her eating/chewing lately.  So maybe we won’t be going so much anymore.  This is also the last week for Kindermusik.  Abram has his family night this week where the whole family is invited to sing and dance and have snacks.  No other big outings.  But we might head to the library, the park or the zoo if we’re bored.

I was busy in the kitchen last week and will likely be busy again this week.  I have so many experiments I’d like to try.  Since I made marshmallows last week I might try using them to make rocky road ice cream or s’mores ice cream.  I might also make some kind of s’mores cookies.  I’m about out of my safe snacks.  So I’ll probably be making some of those – graham crackers, scones, bars, etc.  I didn’t have time last week to try making gluten free bread.  So maybe I’ll get to it this week.  I might also try making gluten free noodles.  And we are just about out of our homemade gummies.  Time to try some new flavors 🙂

A trip to the farm to see my grandparents

Last week was pretty good for me overall.  But yesterday was a rough one.  And still is this morning.  I really hate it when things get painful.  It’s hard to pinpoint one cause.  I’m sure it’s a combination of things.  A few tastes of this or that.  And I tried some fermented cod liver oil again…nope, just can’t do it.  My body does not tolerate fermented foods.  Hopefully some extra magnesium and some soft/safe foods will help calm everything.  And plenty of rest too.

My other plan for this week is to get caught up on some writing.  I’ve got some longer posts I want to get to.  But I have to have the right focus and enough time.  Hopefully that will happen this week.  I’ve got one particular post that I need to get out of my head 😛

On to the menu.  Nothing extravagant this week.  Keeping it simple and healthy.  What are you eating this week?

    Hope you have a good week, Mary! Do you guys have any plans over the holiday weekend? We have small group on Friday night and I might have a photo shoot or two, plus we will probably have a family party at the lake… But otherwise I am hoping to get lots of yard work done. 🙂 We thought about making a trip to GR to see G&G Van, but I doubt it’ll happen. You never know, though. 🙂

    Yep, we are by Battle Creek now. We should get home around 8:00 probably (hopefully… As long as we only have to stop for dinner yet). 🙂
