Menu Plan: August 21 - August 27
We were in six different states over 10 days. We took our time coming home and visited with some friends along the way there and back. I have some photos to share, as well as a couple other posts to make. I finished one book, finished two knitting projects and started another. I'll have some things to say and show about that, too.
Our menu this week is fairly simple. We are just getting back into the groove at home. I'm thrilled to have electricity and a real oven again. While I was proud of my ability to make good meals on an open fire and a camp stove, it's nice to have modern conveniences again. Jerome had his birthday on our last day of travel, so we got home and had a birthday dinner for him and gave him his present. He is the first five year old in our family, anyway, to receive a car for his birthday. He has already run the battery down twice. We're doing the cake and party tonight. It's hard to believe, but Mariam will be a year this week. She will get to celebrate her birthday and her name day on the same day.
Our great deals of the week were on tomatoes and peaches, so you will see them on the menu a lot. I was able to pick up about 30 pounds of tomatoes for $15 and 45 pounds of peaches for $20. I love knowing our farmers. The peach deal was whispered to me, and happened before the other people could catch on to it.
