Here’s my round-up of posts from this week…
This first one is a reminder to slow down in our busy world and think of others – not just think but do.
This is such a great way to start your day. I do some of these things already, but they’re all great.
Now that some of my children are older we often read the same books which makes for some great discussions.
There’s a link in the post to what a sister needs to hear from a brother – they’re both great.
This post made me cry. This is something we all need to be reminded of – doing is so much better than saying.
Last week I said I was going to do this Strawberry Chia Jam. I used stevia instead of honey to keep it on the Trim Healthy Mama diet plan. Super easy and tasty. I will definitely be making more. It’s nice to have jam again.
For my baking today this is what I ended up with:
Molasses Crinkle Cookies – nearly 5 dozen
Double Chocolate Cookies – 7 dozen
Best-Ever Morning Glory Muffins – 1 dozen
Healthy Chocolate Zucchini Muffins – 1 dozen
approximately 2 1/2 cups of hummus
I also put together a meatloaf and ten hamburgers that are now in the freezer waiting to be easy suppers for me.
I wish I could say all of this baking will last until next Friday. We’ll be doing well if it lasts until Tuesday. I need to buy a couple more muffin pans so I can make double batches. When you’re already making one batch it’s not that hard to double it especially with my Kitchen Aid mixer.
For my Pinterest project this week, I’m going to work on teaching my youngest daughter how to do some weaving. She’s been begging me teach her to knit, but for now I think we’ll start with something simpler – straw weaving.
What did you read of interest on the internet this week?
