Menu Plan: July 23 - 29
In case you haven't read my update, please accept my apologies about the way the blog looks. I'm working on migrating all my hosted photos so I can go through and change all the links so there are no longer spam notices and broken image links all over the blog
Actually, I haven't had much time to do any of that this past week, and don't foresee a lot of time this week, either. I have a pretty tight deadline on a design for a UK magazine coming up, which I am working on in almost every moment that I am not taking care of Amira, who had her tonsils taken out on Friday. She's doing alright, but is just in a lot of pain. Please pray for her recovery.
We have a ton of zucchini from a glean, so we're making batches and batches of zucchini bread and muffins for our freezer and to eat, plus eating it in just about every meal. Amira is still on a fruit gelatin, stock, juice, and tea diet, but we're hoping that she can move to mashed potatoes and bananas and things like that Sunday or Monday (she'll eat the gravy, regardless, and maybe some mashed potatoes). Last week, besides knitting like a fiend, I made gallons and gallons of beef stock and chicken stock and lamb stock and turkey stock. I also made two 9" X 11" pans of fruit gelatin. We're giving her colostrum powder in her food/drinks to help her immune system heal her body as well.
My birthday is also this week, though it will be more subdued. However, I have a 41% off sale on all patterns sold in my Ravelry store with the coupon code overthehill. It begins midnight of July 24 (Sunday night!) and ends at 11:59 PM PDT on July 28. Come celebrate my birthday with me!
