Meal Plans Week of 6-23-13

Kind of a slow start to our morning today. The last 2 days have been busy with seeing both sides of the family and going to my brother-in-law’s wedding. Late bed times, lots of excitement, cake decorating, the works. It was so great to get to see so much family, especially relatives we haven’t seen in years. But it was also tiring. We’ll see how long the kids sleep in today 😛

 Now that the wedding is over we can relax a bit. We’ll be busy this week, but nothing out of the ordinary. We need to restock our fridge and cupboards. We should make trips to Heffron Farms, Harvest Health, Meijer and the farmer’s market. And possibly strawberry picking. But that’s a lot of errands in one week. So we’ll see. I’d also like to make a stop at the library to stock up on books again. And possibly go to the zoo or children’s museum. We will also see more family when we celebrate my niece’s first birthday on Saturday!

My potential kitchen tasks for the week are granola bars, squash scones, rice scones and ice cream treats or rainbow ice cream. If we go strawberry picking I need to freeze a bunch and hopefully make jam. I would also like to try making gluten free bread again.

    Glad you guys had a fun weekend!! Wish we could have seen you all, but totally understand and we’ll get to see you on Saturday! 🙂

    I have not even thought about meals yet… Everything fast and easy, though. Because we have a lot of prep work to so for the party all week. Plus a picnic/pool party today for the newly elected and outgoing Board of Congregational Ministry members, softball on Monday, B’s 1-yr check up and seeing Jaime/Grant/Landon on Tuesday, family portraits for the church member directory Wednesday, there is something on Thursday evening, too… But I can’t remember what right now, I’m probably working a half-day on Friday and I have milk pickup. And Saturday is the party. So I am already not sure how we are going to get everything done…. But somehow it will. 🙂

      Oh and I am meeting my friend Lina for lunch tomorrow and will get about 10 pounds of tart cherries from her (from their backyard tree.. For free a trade of the 2 blackberry canes we have in the middle of our yard)… And I would really like to go strawberry picking, too… But that won’t likely happen. I might pick up a flat on Friday to have some for the party and then freeze on Sunday. I just know it’ll be peak this week for them and I don’t want to miss out! I’ll hopefully pick up another couple of flats still next week.
