July is over half way done! Today I have reached 35 weeks. That means less than five weeks to go (32 days to be exact). Time sure is flying.
Even though things seem to be moving quickly I sure seem to be slowing down. But I’m still doing my best to get the last few odds and ends done and keep up with things in the kitchen. I have a pretty ambitious agenda this week. I may end up scrapping half of it. We’ll see how I’m feeling.
My daughter has swimming lessons all week. So that will fill some of our time. We also have a playdate to look forward to.
We are already done with cherry season in our house. It always goes so quickly. I did manage to make two cherry pies last week (one “regular” and one gluten/dairy/rice free). Now it’s time to start freezing beans! Blueberries will be coming soon. I might even try to can a batch of salsa this week since our pantry stash is almost gone. Zucchini is starting as well. I’m trying my best to keep up with the produce preservation.
If you missed any of last week’s posts be sure to check them out! I shared my pre-baby house makeover, pectin-free strawberry jam and blueberry and cherry yogurt. Plus don’t forget that there are a few days left to enter the coconut oil giveaway!
Here is what’s on the menu for the week. I’m still trying to put whatever I can in the freezer. Hopefully it will be enough to get us through the first few weeks after baby arrives. What’s on your menu this week?
