It is pretty crazy how long I can sit and read from one blog to the next to the next and lose track of time. So many great things from recipes to homeschooling, I just don’t know where to stop and where to end! Then I get to the posts that just fascinate me and I can’t help but laugh because it is who I am, or wonder if it will be me.
Right now I have given up on my sourdough starter but I also started apple cider vinegar. I have been getting my basket each week from Bountiful Baskets and this week I am getting 25lbs of tomatoes! I have to get some jars and learn how to preserve them now before they go bad once I pick up on Saturday. Yes I will post a picture because I am sure most of you don’t know what 25lbs of tomatoes looks like. Well, I don’t either for that matter. Yes we all see the huge mounds of tomatoes at the store but actually having them in my home will be a shock.
Too many things I am encountering on my journeys between getting rid of chemicals and reading about homeschooling. One thing I do need to focus more on is to not buy junk/prepared food anymore. I have been getting better now that I get my lovely produce once a week but still give in to those gummy snacks that my kids adore (ok and so do I). I have found various recipes to make gummies and fruit leather but I just never do. Whether it is the sheer laziness since I cook nearly every meal at home or the fact it is easy to grab that box at the store and rip open a packet to give to the kids when they want a snack. Those gummies and chips. Chips are the bane of this home. The hubby refuses to give them up and of course he will finish a bag with the kids in the first night. Long way to go when it comes to food to say the least but I am getting there. Doing my best to shop the “outside” of the store and stick to my menu. Now I just need to get how much I spend down and still keep on the path to eating healthy!
