Just when I think I'm busy, life kicks into high gear and I know what "busy" means! We, like most others, are getting our back to school gear in order. With a high-schooler this has new significance for us homeschoolers. Or maybe just for me. :) Lots more organization and paperwork. And I really need to find time to get it all together this week. The sooner the better.
The garden is also coming in so I'm processing (and by that I mean cooking or freezing, I don't can) lots of delicious foods.
We're still working on eating very healthy, though we did kinda blow it last week as it was my BABY'S *11th* birthday. Unbelievable. So we had too much junk food and cookie cake and I know this week will be harder to settle back into with the nutritious foods.
We're also still walking/jogging. I will do a separate post about that. I think it deserves it's own spot.
OH! And I also want to encourage all of you to check back here this coming Friday (the 15th). I'm going to have a pretty sweet give-a-way in celebration of my 2 years of blogging here. I'm not going to say what it is, but I will tell you that it's something that many of you would LOVE to win.
With this flurry of excitement going on, the menu is going to be as simple as I can possibly make it.
Monday - Tilapia, big garden salad
Tuesday - Fish sandwiches on sprouted wheat bread. Sauteed sweet potatoes
Wednesday - Quinoa and Black Beans, salad
Thursday - Crockpot brisket with vegetables.
Friday - Pizza night! Whole grain crust and as much vegetables as I can pile on top, with homemade pesto! The basil is going crazy in the garden.
I hope to put up pictures of the pesto, but it's not my recipe. I found the one that we love the most on AllRecipes.com.
I usually make at least a double batch. We eat it on everything.
