This week is super exciting, because Mr.B only has 4 days of school left!!! For the past two weeks, I've been wishing school was over already. I just need to sleep later than 7am.... desperately, LOL. Thankfully the kids took pity on me and slept until 9am on Saturday and until 10 am on Sunday. With sunset so late, I let them stay up until 9:30 on weekends. As long as they aren't too rowdy, cranky and aren't arguing, I'm cool with that.
Yesterday, Hubby and I took the kids to a local Strawberry Festival. We had fun picking over 12 L of strawberries, buying more farm fresh local produce, getting the kid's faces painted and eating some yummy BBQed burgers and dogs. It started raining just as we were leaving, so our timing was perfect. Today I have to wash, hull and freeze some berries, while I turn the others into yummy strawberry jam. I'll be trying a few different variations this year.... hope they are yummy. The weather has cooled off a bit this week, so hopefully I can get that roast I bought on sale, on the table tonight. We will also be celebrating Canada Day here this weekend, so stay tuned for a great white and red dessert I have planned to share with you.
Here's our menu, for the week
- Crockpot roast with mashed potatoes and broccoli
- Texas Cheeseburger Sliders (new recipe) with chips and homemade salsa
