Oh my. I thought I was going to be sooo prepared. Jada starts kindergarten this week (3 full days/week) and I have no idea what to pack in her lunch other than peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and canned peaches. I need some serious help here!
(Just so you know, she told me she wants bacon/tomato sandwiches and cupcakes. I said perhaps occasionally to the bacon and cupcakes!)
Garden-wise there are bushels of tomatoes on my dining room table to can, another corn patch coming soon, and a few straggly eggplants and summer squash. The peppers are slowly coming. I pick one for a recipe occasionally but there aren’t enough to freeze any yet. The yield isn’t looking too promising. I’m glad I froze plenty last year.
We butchered one of our pigs on Saturday and roasted her up. We had delicious pork sandwiches that evening along with our eggplant parmesan. The remaining meat will be served at two parties we are hosting this weekend. We saved the stomach so now I have to figure out how to clean that thing and stuff it.
School starting, party planning/hosting, summer produce to deal with…let’s hope I don’t lose my head before next Monday….
