Ramblings

I have a recipe to share with you, I promise!!

But it needs just a little more tweaking. Which involves re-making it and taking new photos.

Trust me, this is a good thing. For me. Because I’ll get to eat it.

Eventually it will be a good thing for you, because you’ll get to eat it. Assuming, of course, that you make it. (You should!)

Anyway, until Saturday when I can re-cook and re-shoot, here’s a look at what I’ve been up to.

Soaking up absolutely every last bit of sunshine. Fortunately, until this week we’ve actually had really amazing weather.

Secret Agent Machine
Marveling at how fast my son is growing up. He’s writing sentences! (It says “Secret Agent Machine,” in case you don’t read 1st grade)

Apple Canning
Canning! For the first time ever! It’s so fun, and I love love love eating homemade applesauce, apple butter and plum butter. I don’t know enough about canning yet to share with you, but I have lovely friends who are helping me learn.

Pinterest. If I need to tell you more, you are seriously missing out. I can pin like it’s my job, people.

I’ve also gotten us back on a weekly menu plan. I can’t believe how much time, energy, money and sanity this saves! It only takes us about 10 minutes to figure out what we want to eat that week, and then we just figure out what ingredients we need to buy and head to the store. And then I know that we won’t be eating the same things over and over, and we use up leftovers much more efficiently because it’s planned into the menu. Oh the little things that make me happy 🙂

What have you been up to?

One thought on “Ramblings

  1. I totally agree with you about meal planning. I don’t do it everytime, however, when I do the house just feels more “at peace and right with the world”. I don’t have to think about it at work that day or stop by the store to pick up something that looks good…hence, saving buckets of cash and time wasted with it in the back of my brain!

    I just started following you but feel that one-to-one e-connection! Keep it up!
