Snowflake and more

August 9th, 2017 at 02:54 pm

We decided to hold off on refinishing the hardwood floors until next summer.

Yesterday, we received a check for $1200 from our mortgage escrow. I put that money towards the "lofty savings goal" which sits at 81.7%. Once we reach the goal, we will begin paying extra towards the principal of our house (once again).

We have quite a few tomatoes in our garden and I see that the cucumbers and squash are beginning to sprout. The pepper plants are also beginning to flower. We've been eating cucumbers and yellow squash given to us by friends. I love this time of the year.

I've been making some extra meals to freeze. The other day I put everything together for chili, I also made 20 Mexican flautitas with some leftover chicken, sweet and sour chicken and browned boneless chicken breasts for salads and pasta. Today I am making mini bean burritos and pickling some cucumbers.

Three more weeks of summer vacation and I'm off to work!

    Great idea to make meals ahead while you have more time. I expect these will help you in the busy months of the school year!

    Do you have enough tomatoes to can? I just made a very small jar of pickles this afternoon since the 3 very small cubes were ready and there aren't enough big ones available yet.
