A typical morning here…I just sit down to write and little one is crying. So it’s time to feed and type (if that’s possible). Life with three kids is never dull.
We’re starting to get into the school and activity routine here. Though I’m still adjusting to the whole making lunches thing.
This will be another fairly busy week. On top of our usual activities I have to do bloodwork to check my thyroid levels again. We also have our first mom’s group meeting. We might go raspberry picking this weekend. I’d also like to go to the orchard if time allows. We’ve seen relatives every weekend for the last four weeks. So it’ll be nice to have a free weekend.
I don’t have any major kitchen projects this week. I do have to bake some kind of bread or muffin for our mom’s group meeting. My son has been begging for pudding so I’ll make a batch of that this week as well. My son and I have also been making one loaf of gluten free bread every week. It’s our baking project together. I get to experiment and he’s going to be a master gluten free baker some day.
For meals this week I’m keeping it simple. I’m also trying to get broth in our diet whenever possible. We’ve already been through our first colds. I want to boost our immune systems (we are also taking elderberry syrup and I’m ordering essential oils soon!).
In addition to my “breakfast for dinner” every Friday I’m now adding soup night to our weekly meals. It makes meal planning easier and it’s super healthy.
