May sure is flying by. All of our activities are ending. Even school will be done in a few weeks! I am looking forward to spending more time with my oldest…but I will miss my totally quiet afternoons.
Thankfully this week isn’t too busy. My daughter has her last dance class before her recital, and my son has his four year check up.
Last week my little one was sick and majorly teething (tooth #7 is now through…she’s only 8 months old!). She had a fever for over three days straight and wanted to be held all day long. Needless to say I didn’t get a whole lot done. Hopefully this week will be a better one. But I’m still not planning too much so we can all rest and recover.
I finally got some lard last week. It sure was nice to get fat into my diet again! This week we pick up our co-op order, so I’ll be getting both lard and tallow to render.
These are my potential kitchen projects this week: granola bars, crackers, scones, gluten free bread, sourdough bread, something with rhubarb, cookies, render tallow and lard.
I would also like to get some work done out of the kitchen. The house could use some serious cleaning and dusting.
As always simple is key when it comes to meals. But this week we don’t need our usual prep ahead Tuesday meal since our Tuesday activity is done! My big girl graduated from Kindermusik last week. In a couple weeks the farmers market will open and I can start incorporating seasonal fresh foods to our menu. Here is what we’re eating. How about you?
