It’s August!!! I feel like I’ve been waiting for August for a long time. Today is 37 weeks. That means 18 days to go! Even this close to meeting my little miracle it seems surreal.
Our weekend was filled with blueberries. We had fun blueberry picking as a family. Most of them are in the freezer already. But some will be used for baking projects this week. And lots of fresh eating of course. Blueberries are my favorite fruit. So this is always a great time of year.
I’m thankful that our week won’t be too busy. I’m looking forward to getting a few more things done around the house and spending lots of time with my kids.
If you missed the new recipes last week be sure to check them out – cherry jam, classic vanilla ice cream and gluten free dairy free double strawberry shortcake. Be on the lookout for more fun recipes this week!
Last week I attempted to create a gluten free bread recipe four times…and failed. I think I’ll give it one more go today. Then I’ll have to take a break from bread baking. We’ll see how this one turns out. Even if it doesn’t work now I’ll figure it out someday…when I have more time.
Here is our menu for the week. I’m trying to keep the meals simple so I have the time and energy to keep up with baking and preserving all of the fresh produce. What’s on your menu this week? What are you doing in the kitchen?
