July is in full swing. We had a fun holiday weekend. But it sure was tiring. It seems that my energy is dwindling by the day, so I’m trying to make the most of each day to get done what I can. We’re definitely counting down now. Forty six days to go!
This will be a very busy week. I also have a lot to do in the kitchen. I hope I can keep up.
We just defrosted our second freezer. Hopefully today I can get it re-organized. Then both freezers will be ready for stocking! Cherries are in season here in Michigan. If time allows we’ll go picking soon. Before I know it blueberries and peaches will be ready.
Aside from my kitchen work and running around I need to start making all of my pre-baby to-do lists. I need to plan the menus for when I’m gone so my little guy can be easily fed by someone else. I need to write down all of the last minute items so the house is set. It seems like I keep thinking of one more thing to add to the list.
Be sure to check back this week as I have a really delicious recipe and a giveaway!! You don’t want to miss them. And if you missed last week’s recipes I had TWO new ice creams – red, white and blue swirl and blueberry pie.
Here is our menu for the week. I hope I can manage all of my extras. I want the freezer stocked by the time baby comes. What are you eating this week?
