In My Kitchen – July 2017

Summer is in full swing now and it’s chaotic here!  The boys have swim practice every weekday, a couple days are doubled up on practices (summer swim team and year round swim team).  I’m having trouble keeping my head above water.

I still manage to get to the gym 3-4 days a week and when we get home after the gym or swim practice and have a late lunch it’s nearly two in the afternoon.  We are all tired and cranky sometimes!

Despite all that craziness our kitchen has still been busy, perhaps adding to my fatigue.  Let’s start with the aforementioned swim schedule.  Between practices the boys need a snack so I keep busy packing snacks.  They also have meets two nights a week so I have to pack dinners too.  Here’s a glimpse of a few of the things I’ve been packing.  Luckily they only have one more night meet (that being said they still have City Meet this coming weekend and State Meet the next weekend).

The garden also keeps me busy.  While it is wonderful having fresh produce, it is quite a bit of work.  I don’t keep up with the weeding as well as I should but oh well!  The month started out squash/zucchini heavy and by the end of June we were getting more tomatoes, watermelon, eggplant, jalapenos and peperoncini.
