#4 Most Popular Post + Garden Tomato Sauce

The fourth most popular post from the past year iiiissssss....

Capturing Your Social Media Into A Memory Book!

It really is a cool idea.

In other news my kids picked about dozen tomatoes from our garden, plus a big zucchini and basil. 

I used one jar of bionaturae strained tomatoes and pureed it with an onion, the zucchini and half the tomatoes.   Put in the crock pot along with the rest of the tomatoes chopped up and basil.
We'll serve it with the red lentil pasta I mentioned in the past (absolutely no ingredients in it except red lentils and the kids love it!).

Easiest and freshest dinner ever!

Happy 95th!

Today is my grandmother's 95th birthday so me and the little two are heading up to visit her.

My middle one is missing his big brother (who is in FL with his daddy for a wedding) so much - it is too cute.

Jury Duty

I spent nearly 7 hours in a jury duty waiting room before being dismissed.  I need to call again next Monday to see if they need me and if they don't I am done for six years.

My brain is so fried from doing nothing I can't even write anything more!

Green Kid Crafts

Here's a Get It Done Tip for kid crafts.  We received our first shipment from Green Kid Crafts and loved it!

Each month you get:
  • 3-4 award winning Creativity and STEM Science Kits (science, technology, engineering, and math) designed by experts to build confidence, flex creativity, and make kids smarter.
  • All materials and instructions, along with some fun extras!
  • An exciting new theme, think Outer Space, Kitchen Science, Nocturnal Animals, Backyard Science, Ocean, and Mad Scientist.

  • In our kit this month we made homemade bird feeders, endangered bird puppets and window clings.
    They even put in organic peeled apple clusters which we never had before as a snack.  My kids loved it so I ordered more from amazon. :)

    Quiet Sunday

    Quiet day on tap for today.  Went to Whole Foods and nail salon.  Now hanging out in backyard.  We'll likely go out for dinner later and that's it.   Early to bed tonight since tomorrow starts the second half of camp where my middle one joins the big boy.
