What to Cook for Dinner?
This week I was able to get quite a few of my goals done. But I still don’t have the plan done for our garden but that hasn’t stopped me from planting some new seeds in the garden. 🙂 Our seedlings we started on the refrigerator are getting bigger and needed to be replanted into bigger pots. I have a cold frame set up so they can grow a little larger before I transplant them into the garden.
I finished our menu plan for the next 5 weeks and went and did my once a month shopping trip at Winco Foods this week too. I sometimes dread doing the plan as it takes about an hour to complete and make my shopping list but it is nice to be done for the next 5 weeks.
I had a fun time shopping with my daughter this week. We used the shopping trip to go over how to figure out the best price of a certain product. We found that the 3-lb bag of onions were actually less expensive than the 5-lb bag of onions and the 5-lb bag of flour actually saved up $.25 every 10 pounds of flour we bought. I try to apply science and math to real life as much as possible. I think it helps to motivate kids when they can see how what they are learning is used in everyday real life. 🙂
Here is what I was able to accomplish this past week,
