This week’s real food meal plan and agenda focus on easy prep and easy clean up while we pick up the pace with activities.
Just when I thought we were all back to full health…my son had a fever again last night. Spring can not come quickly enough!
My son is also still having daily stomach aches. We are trying to find the root cause. But so far not much luck.
In the kitchen.
We are picking up the pace with weekly activities as Kindermusik and swimming lessons start. My oldest started piano again last week. That means busy, busy and not as much time in the kitchen.
My refrigerator and pantry are totally bare. It is definitely time to restock! Groceries first thing Monday morning. Plus my kitchen projects:
- kettle corn granola
- elderberry syrup
- baked oatmeal
- double raspberry chocolate chip muffins
- sourdough bread (I’m trying it with barley for the first time…and praying my daughter handles it ok)
On the blog.
If you haven’t had a chance go enter the Crunchy Balm giveaway! My family is kind of obsessed with this stuff now. And be sure to come back tomorrow. I’m sharing a super fun recipe that is perfect for sick kiddos. Though my kids beg for it all the time.
I’ve been hard at work lately putting the finishing touches on my book and prepping some updates to the look of the blog. The countdown is on!
