Are you ready for a three day weekend? I know I am. It is the unofficial start to summer. I don’t know about where you live, but here in Oklahoma the weather definitely feels like summer. We went from a cooler than normal April to a warmer than normal May. I think we kind of skipped spring and moved straight to summer this year.
With kids growing up and schedules getting busy with school, work, and friends, I appreciate more and more a slow Saturday morning where everyone is home for a pancake breakfast.
Can we talk about griddles for a minute? I loved my ceramic griddle when I got it back in 2015. I even posted about how much I loved it. I am not loving it so much anymore. It was great for the first year or two, but I feel like it is wearing out. It is getting very discolored and stuff is sticking to it. I think I might have to replace it. Do you have a griddle that you love? I would love suggestions for replacing mine.
If you need some easy breakfasts or lunches for the summer it is a great time to make some homemade freezer breakfast burritos. We have been making a ton of these for easy meals. These work with Mission gluten free tortillas as well.
I feel like this has been the state of my house for the last few weeks. Piles of papers, books, and other things everywhere. We are having a bunch of people over this weekend, so guess what I am working on today…
We are finishing up our fourteenth year of homeschooling. At least I think it is fourteen years. I need to go back and figure out exactly how many years it has been. It has been a lot though. I don’t talk about homeschooling much here because this is a food blog, but homeschooling is a big part of our life.
Over on our book site my daughter shared how she developed a love or reading and a love of nonfiction books. If you struggle to get your kids to read you might enjoy reading it. I plan to do a follow up post to it sharing how I ignored the experts when it came to helping my kids enjoy reading. Because I totally went against what most experts say you should do.
We also shared a few of our favorite things over on the books site.
I want to take the time to also thank you for following along on my adventures. I love getting comments and emails from you. You help make this site what it is. I don’t want to clutter up your inbox though, so if you are reading this by email and no longer find my emails helpful, there is an unsubscribe link below. I mean that.
I hope you enjoy my emails and find them helpful, but if they are no longer a good fit I understand. I have been cleaning up my inbox and unsubscribing to things that I no longer find helpful. None of us need more clutter in our lives. I hope you choose to follow along on my kitchen adventures, but if not I totally understand.
I hope you have a great weekend!
