Yum.




Today…

I planned out dinners through September 25.  Yes, that’s right, 44 days in advance.  Probably won’t stick to it *every* single day, but I’ve got the basics for all of them on hand.

Also planned out my canning/freezing through September.  We’ll see how that goes.  Have to do it around dh’s wood-cutting schedule, but produce from the garden won’t necessarily wait for dh.

Did our budget for next month.  On a no-debt mission.
No, our mortgage is at least 15 years away from being paid off (my ambitious goal is by 2020, even though it’s a typical 30-year loan), but that’s also if dh never gets a raise.  Which probably won’t happen because people like him are supposedly in high demand.

Picked a few blueberries and dh picked 2 big zucchini and 9 cucumbers today.  Started giving cucumbers away. 

Got a favorite zucchini recipe?  Share, please.    We’ll have enough to freeze pounds of it *and* to annoy our neighbors with it.  Same with cucumbers.

Decided when in October ds1’s birthday party will be.  Even wrote down on the calendar when I need to send out the invites.  No idea whether we’ll get him a present or not.  If we do, it’ll probably be clothes because he’s got enough crap.

Am seriously thinking of just getting a fridge or oven box for ds1 for Christmas.  By then the basement should be in better shape and the house/car/whatever it ends up being could hang out down there.  Hell, the kid drove an empty Coke box around the living room for almost an hour today.  The simple things.

  1. Ambitious!! I’ve got a great brown sugar zucchini bread recipe hanging around here. I’ll track it down and then should I post it in comments, on my blog, or email it to you?
    The box idea sounds great! My son loves boxes too and he’s four!

  2. Those look yummy, I love the girl guide chocolate mint cookies, a match made in heaven, chocolate and mint.
    As for the zuchinni, go to recipezaar.com and search zuchinni, there will be tons of recipes theree, and many are rated.  I submitted one, but it got two stars :(.  I make everything with zuchinni right now, soup, stir fry, muffins etc.
