I think I’ve mentioned that I do all the cooking for the week in 1 or 2 days. Usually 3 entres, 2 sides, a salad, and some things to snack on too. I still have granola from 2 weeks ago. It keeps about 6 weeks. However, I am also baking a couple of loaves of bread and pumpkin muffins. Here’s the first batch. The bite-size ones also have cranberries in them. They will be gone by tomorrow. I made another dozen to add t this. Then after all are cooled I pack them up in a sealed storage bag and leave on counter beside granola. I already made Alex’s taco hamburger meat. He heats that up all week wrapped in tortillas. Yet to be fixed: Chicken salad, Manhattan Clam Chowder, Roasted Whole Chicken, Corn on the Cobb and whipped potatoes.
I’m also moving our exercise bike into living room so I can get in some cross training of an evening – also helps keep me limber. Feeling kind of tired today after the 8 miler yesterday. It is beautiful outside right now. Kind of cool actually. I’m not running today. If I were it would definitely be outside. Jim and Alex are trying to stay busy in other parts of the house. They did a phenomenal job watering everything outside this summer. Many around us had a lot of suffering flowers and such. Ours really did well. It’s sad, but it’s time to get ready to close the pool. So Ode To A Great Summer enjoy the pics of our backyard….
