The end of ‘summer’ is upon us. Kiki will go back to school next week and Joe will be on his school time schedule of 10:30AM to 7PM. Lulu will be taking a virtual school this year (online school) so she’ll be home with me and Christopher each day.
I’m going to be majorly lazy this week and not plan any breakfasts on weekdays. The girls have not been wanting to eat what I make anyway so they are on their own for this week. Joe makes his own breakfast before leaving for work so I just feed Christopher and me in the mornings and that is usually an egg and toast. I’ll have to go back to ‘real’ breakfasts when school is back in session.
We’ll be enjoying Black Beans this week. Black beans are not something that I grew up eating but have discovered that I really enjoy them. I’m making a big pot today (Tuesday) and we’ll have them for dinner tonight, tomorrow night and Thursday and lunch on Saturday. Beans are a great way to stretch our food budget. I soak them overnight and then usually cook them in a bone broth to help increase the protein.
Like last week, I’m not planning produce into the menu. We’ll be going to the farmers market tonight and use whatever produce we happen to find there.
