Our family is not early risers. In order to get the children started early on a day with much packing, I told them they could have waffles if they were up by 8 AM. This was a challenge to them. 5 of the 6 got there on time. Poor Thomas, missed out.
T-Bob got busy and made some peach sauce from some frozen peaches we had. It was yummy!
They worked together and
ended up with this yummy morsel. Yes, they are gluten free and as good as any normal waffle.
Thomas is growing quickly and prefers his sleep.
We also cleaned out the garden and found a lot of eggplant and basil left, that we didn't want to go to waste.
We made pesto from the basil, which is one of our favorite foods.
I have been substituting pumpkin seeds for the pine nuts or other nuts, primarily for financial reasons. It tastes really good too. One uses olive oil, fresh garlic and sea salt.
We even had enough to freeze! Yeah!!
We packed boxes the entire day!!! My friend Kathy came over and worked with us for 6 hours, helping us pack boxes. We still have way too much left to pack. There is no end to our book collection! The bedrooms are getting emptier and should be OK. The china is packed and some other kitchen items are packed. We are hoping to be down to mostly furniture come Saturday. We have managed to put enough food in the freezer that we should only have limited meal preparation for the next 5 days or so.
There is much taping
and labeling of boxes.
