Our new schedule went pretty good last week. Our mornings sure do start early. Kiki and Joe have both agreed to take packed lunches with them this year so I’m working on figuring out good portable lunches for them that will be somewhat nutrient dense and still economical. I made a batch of Sourdough Pockets which worked good for last week and I suspect will become a fairly regular lunch item. Today Kiki took leftover fried chicken and Joe took a couple of antelope sandwiches (this was meat that I pulled off the bones when making broth) not quite sure what the rest of the weeks packed lunches will look like.
This week Lulu will start school (she is doing virtual school this year) so I imagine we will need a few days adjustment this week for that schedule. And I have a few bigger kitchen projects to do this week like preserving the 40 pounds of nectarines I received today and hopes of picking apples sometime soon too and… well you get the idea. This week we will have a challenge. We belong to a cowshare for our milk needs and right now the cows are dry while we are awaiting calves. So no milk for this week. I will buy some grocery store milk to make into yogurt and kefir. I do have some coconut milk that we can use for things too. It should be interesting. I am hoping those cows have their calves soon!
