This week’s real food meal plan for picky eaters includes tacos, sloppy joes and a picnic! With family in town we’ll be enjoying lots of good food and fun.
School is done!
Well, sort of. On Friday we decided to call our 2-016 – 2017 school officially over. It just felt like good timing. Not to mention we’ve finished all of our work! Tomorrow we’ll head to our local home school building to start buying our new curriculum so we can get back at it.
This week will be a busy one with shopping (it’s been over two weeks since I’ve been to the store…the fridge and freezer are bare!!), meeting up with friends and having out-of-town family stay with us. If you need me I’ll be in the kitchen or cleaning like mad (and yes, we are taking this week off of school).
Our garden is coming along nicely. So far we’ve been enjoying fresh spinach. Soon we’ll have lots of lettuce. Bring on the salads!! I made a new dressing last week that my kids are going crazy for (even my son that hates salad). I’ll be sharing it on the blog soon.
