I propose that we get more than two days for every weekend. Do I have a second? I am going to a training class for work ALL week. This means that I will have to get organized for our last three days since I will not be at home for any of them during the day.
Yesterday went well. Although, I have lost my voice, and Lucas is still snotty.
High – We are ALL sleeping. For the first time in over a year, everyone is sleeping really well. It could be coincidental timing, but I feel like I am really getting rested.
Low – Dave wants cookies. He misses them, and tells me about it often. Actually, he told me yesterday he was over this “thing” we were trying, and he was quitting. I did not relent. We can do this. We can do hard things. Low #2 – Real food means TONS of compost. Tons of stinky compost that needs to be emptied a few times a day. It also means ants and bugs in the compost bin. Ewwww.
Breakfast was uneventful except that Lucas wanted little more than a bottle and to go to bed. He took a very long morning nap.
After lunch, both boys took marathon naps. Dave and I rearranged the kitchen appliance locations to make some room for Juicy to have a home on the counter. I was getting twitchy with no room to do prep. Like NO room.
Dinner for the boys was sweet potatoes, cheese, applesauce and steamed broccoli. We brought everything with us to the park across the street to watch cousin Dakota play baseball. It was nice to be outside and let Trevor run around. We came back, we got the rice started for our dinner, got the boys in the bath and then off to bed. Once they were in bed, I broiled the scallops. This was by far the best meal we have had since starting this real food adventure.
We used the chicken stock from the whole chicken cooked the other night to make the brown rice, and it gave it amazing flavor. Honestly not sure I can ever go back to canned stock or even “better than bouillon” stock.
After dinner, we made a really tasty dessert with sliced banana, peanut butter, and drizzled honey. WOW!!!
Breakfast was juicy for us with some chia, and defrosted pancakes for the boys.
Lunch will be veggie rice for the boys using the rice from last night, and zucchini, asparagus and pea puree for the sauce.
Dinner tonight will be homemade pizza. Dave is planning to have a pesto pizza, and I am going to make a margarita pizza. The boys will most likely have a cheese version.
I will also be spending much of the day cooking some items ahead to be ready for the remaining three days.
Off to Costco to stock up on goodness!
