My Week on Wednesday… September 3

My Week on Wednesday -- Join me each week to find out what I've learned, what I've been doing, and read up on the different blogs I've been visiting! ~ Christine @ Once Upon a Time in a Bed of Wildflowers


Hello and welcome to another My Week on Wednesday where I take a few moments to share what I’ve been doing over the week. I share some of the blogs I’ve visited, and some of the things that I have learned.

Wednesday escaped me… and as I’m typing this, I am realizing that Thursday is escaping me as well. Ah, well… sometimes these things happen; we’ve had a busy week!

We enjoyed the last bits of summer…

And went back to school.

Yes, my kids go to public school. And, yes, they wear uniforms — and I LOVE uniforms!

Also, we got a kitten. This is Isis… isn’t she adorable? But I think she deserves her very own post, don’t you?

And now, on to what I’ve read…

    • Canning Salsa — I actually find canning salsa to be a bit annoying, but I LOVE to open a nice jar of it during the winter. Nachos, with homemade salsa, is one of our favorite quick meals — we usually eat it on the couch, while watching a movie — so I can a LOT of salsa. This post has a few great tips which have made my life easier! 🙂
    • Drying Tomatoes — The tomatoes that didn’t get turned into salsa? This is where they went! The kids can expect to find lots of dried tomatoes in their lunches this year!

    • Speaking of kids and school lunches… Gummy Zucchini Candy. This idea is just TOO awesome. I can’t wait to try it out!

    • And Homemade Granola. I’m thinking that my kids will be getting a lot of granola in their lunches, too — with all the wonderful fruit I’ve been dehydrating with my fabulous dehydrator (affiliate link), and homemade yogurt.

    • Check out this Garden-Fresh Recipe: Eggplant with Wild Salmon. It sounds amazing!

    • And, finally, a gluten-free chocolate cake recipe with pink frosting — Chickpea Chocolate Cake with Beet Cream Cheese Icing. Who doesn’t need chocolate cake?

And that brings us to the Quote of the Week. Approximately daily, I post quotes on my Facebook Page. The quote with the most likes, shares, and comments will become the Quote of the Week.
