To mention my recent absence, or not to mention?? Truth is, blogging is not a business for me. Just a fun hobby. And as just about everyone in the entire world knows, there are seasons when hobbies cannot take a front seat. Or even a back seat. Or even a sidecar.
This, for me, has been one of those seasons. Is she pregnant, AGAIN?!?!? That will probably be the first question many of you will think to ask :). The answer is, right now, no. The Lord has seen it fit to keep me plenty busy with my current role of wife and mother to five. I am content with that!
My husband’s business has kept our family extremely busy lately, and it seems that any time we have him to ourselves, I just don’t feel like sneaking away to blog. I just want to enjoy our togetherness.
But, we are still eating. So, at the very least, I can share with you what we have on the menu for this week!
Gluten-free was a short-lived experiment for us. We just didn’t see any differences – good or bad. Still very thankful that we do not need to be gluten-free. I am still making a conscious effort to limit our wheat, though. Mostly because I just don’t feel comfortable eating any food several times a day, every day of the week.
Honey Nut O’s from Trader Joe’s (my kids thought I deserved Mother of the Year for this one)
Baked Potatoes, steamed broccoli, cheese
Bean Bowls (refried beans with fixin’s), corn chips
Turkey Sandwiches, fresh veggies
Pancakes, sausage, maple icing
Leftovers x 3
Taco Joes (like sloppy joes, but taco-y and eaten with chips), shredded cheese, tomato, sour cream, corn chips
Roasted Potatoes and Sausage, green beans
Chicken Spaghetti, steamed peas, carrot sticks
Tuna, Spinach and Rice, oranges
Beef and Black Bean Stew, fruit
Pizza, fresh veggies
Church Pot Luck – breakfast theme this week . . . Still not sure about this one . . .
So, that’s the plan! Are you in a busy season right now? What are you doing to stay sane?
