Dudes, this weekend was crazy busy and the weather was insane. The first two days of summer were the coolest on the record, and my neighbors were using their fireplace yesterday! "Juneuary" is not making my garden happy. My tomatoes are stunted (I would say that is at least 60% my fault), my basil is probably dead, and my cucumbers are sad sacks. I have yet to see a single pumpkin seed germinate. My peas and beets are pretty happy though.
This is week two of my crazy condensed work schedule. It makes for some looooong days, and some simple meals. Here is what we'll be shoving in our food holes this week.
Monday:: working too late to plan a dinner. Jack will eat at my aunt's, and Troy and I will have eggs or cereal or something easy like that.
Tuesday:: Leftover lasagna (from belated father's day dinner on Friday), grilled zukes, coleslaw, and fruit.
Friday:: Walking to the little restaurant in our town. If I'm being 100% honest, I'm not going to feel like cooking by Friday.
Saturday:: Popcorn, veggies, and fruit on the couch while watching a movie from the library!
Sunday:: Dinner at my parent's.
This week we spent $28.17 at the grocery store. I don't have a picture because Troy, (yes Troy!) took Jack shopping. Let's just say they had three stops to make, and I got about five phone calls and texts and it took them three hours. I wasn't pressing for a picture at that point.
I also spent $14 on raw milk (needed a lot this weekend for homemade ricotta, yogurt, and ice cream (priorities)), and $30 at the farmer's market on cherries, zukes, apples, and more cherries.
