This week’s real food meal plan and agenda revolves around selling (or not selling) our house. We’re going with a meal list instead of set plans.
The countdown is on! We’re scrambling to do last minute clean up in the house before putting it up for sale!! I can’t say I’m looking forward to the selling process and having to get out of the house. It will be nice when that part is over.
This week has a lot of uncertainty. Will we put the house up for sale this week or next week? Will we be eating dinner at home every night or will I have to pack a dinner? I just don’t know. And it stresses me out!!
So my meal plans for the end of the week will be a list of options so I can pick what works best as details unfold.
In The Kitchen.
I don’t have time for much in the kitchen. I did a lot of baking yesterday. I still have a bunch of apples to deal with…at some point. Hopefully I can squeeze my applesauce canning in somehow.
I’m hoping to start the parasite cleanse for my big kids this week since you start a couple days before the full moon. I’m anxious to see if it helps!
We’ve been doing pretty well with introducing new foods for the kids. I sure have been enjoying butter again!!! But I let my toddler have an apple on Friday. That was a big NO. Stomach aches, poor sleep, poor eating and little red spots all over. Considering we are moving to a house with about 75 apple trees I sure hope she outgrows this allergy soon.
I’ve also got some new recipes and product reviews coming up.
