This has been a busy, tiring week. I’m tired of having to put my garden back together because it looks like a tasty snack or a litter box depending on the miscreants that have invaded that particular day. I’m tired of having to justify every decision I make to myself. I’m tired of having to fight my child at every single meal. I’m tired of having to explain that she has to share mommy with another baby whom she only sees 5 days a week. I’m just plain exhausted.
Ok, enough wallowing. I’m done.
Now for some more interesting news. Our garden (despite the miscreants) is doing well, I don’t think I’m getting any carrots this season though.
Also, we had to get a new chicken. Poor Jellybean wasn’t getting any better and in the homesteading world if you don’t produce I can’t afford to feed you. The new girl doesn’t have a name yet, so if you have a food-themed name that you’d like to suggest please do so in the comments!
The flower garden is full of coneflower blooms and I still gotta figure out how to harvest that, it’s a great medicinal herb. I’m also gonna start doing pictures for the canning tutorials and getting everything lined up for when I get more than one vote on the poll.
Well enough rambling, here is this week’s menu.
Today: Leftovers or popcorn, depends on the contents of my fridge.
Thursday: Billy is making fish and chips (fries), he makes it the best in my opinion.
Friday: Club sandwiches and chips (crisps to my UK readers).
Saturday: Pinwheels and a veggie tray (homemade of course).
Sunday: I’m gonna try my hand at making pizza with matzoh for the crust. Wish me luck.
Monday: Honestly, I haven’t the foggiest. I’m thinking maybe pesto pasta.
Tuesday: Taco Pizza, we like this because you only have to cook the crust which is made with crescent roll dough and the meat and we can do that in the morning when it’s not so hot.
