This week’s real food meal plan and agenda is all about having fun and spending time with the kids…and not going crazy stuck inside.
Happy spring break! The kids are all off from school. We’re ready to have fun. And we got about six inches of snow yesterday! In April. It’s just crazy.
This week we’ll be doing lots of fun things and doing a different activity theme every day. We’ll start off with a baking day since Tuesday is my husband’s birthday! He requested a chocolate eclair dessert. So I have to make all of the components and make a couple different varieties so both of the big kids can have some. What ever happened to the simple version where you layer store-bought graham crackers, instant pudding and packaged frosting. Ha!
We will also have a craft day, reading day (visit to the library), a play day (where we don’t have a to-do list) and a cleaning day.
In the kitchen.
I have a lot to get done in the kitchen as we are out of just about everything. My list of projects includes:
- chocolate eclair dessert
- graham crackers
- pudding (dairy version and coconut version)
- render lard
- teff crackers
- sweet bread
- breakfast cookies
On the blog.
Don’t forget today is the final day to take advantage of Grove’s Mrs. Meyer’s spring package. Lots of free stuff!
