This week’s rotational real food meal plan and agenda are focused on all things blueberry and getting ready for camping. Blueberry pie anyone??
The heat is on! What a hot week in Michigan. We don’t usually have temps in the mid and upper 90’s. I’m so thankful we have AC.
We’re looking forward to a fun week with celebrating our 13th anniversary and some special girl time and boy time. The boys will be camping while the girls do some girly things at home (like a real tea party!).
Plus lots of blueberry goodness. Between two trips to go picking we got about forty five pounds. We’ll freeze most of it. But I’ve already make blueberry peach crumble. Summer is just not summer without blueberry pie! It’s my absolute favorite.
In The Kitchen
So kitchen work will include dealing with blueberries and prepping food for camping. My list includes:
- freeze blueberries
- traditional blueberry pie and gluten free blueberry pie
- lunch meat
- carob chips
- pancake mix
- pumpkin yogurt
- zucchini chips?
- freeze zucchini?
In The Classroom
Slowly but surely we’re making progress figuring out our upcoming home school year. I’m excited to get our curriculum so I can really get planning. I’m still just amazed at how this unfolding when just a month ago it was only an inkling of an idea.
There is still time to enter the Ball canning giveaway!! The new book is amazing. There is a zucchini bread jam recipe that I am just dying to try.
