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?
