Nothing says good morning like a bar of soap in the eye. I think I can finally see again! Are you ready to start a new week? I know I am!
Last week was full of highs and lows – a birth, a death, decisions…I’m ready for some calm this week. It will be a busy week with both speech and occupational therapy, dentist visit, a steering team meeting and our usual activities. We are probably also getting our half pig!
After a week off from new foods we let my son try avocado yesterday. We’ll see in a few days how it’s going. I tried some too after not eating any for almost two years. I’ve also started eating raw egg yolks a few times a week to try to bump up my nutrients. So far little one seems fine with them.
I’ve got a busy week in the kitchen. I still have some Valentine’s Day baking and photographing to finish. I got a batch of sauerkraut started yesterday. I’m anxious to try some in a few days. I’ll keep up with making water kefir about every other day. I’m also making muffins, mayo and graham crackers.
Last week I posted my 2015 goals. I have a lot to do! I already got some rye and spelt flour from the health food store. So soon it will be time to try sourdough. I also posted a recipe for granola pancakes. This week I’ve got some really delicious recipes to share.
I’m trying to get back into the habit of planning breakfasts to make life a little easier for myself. So the menu has a little more to it this week. Next week I’m thinking about doing a week of broth challenge and see if I can plan seven dinners that all contain broth. Want to join me? Here’s what’s on the menu this week.
