Summer of 7...Week 1 Day 4

We are 1/2 way through our food week and going strong. You know what is funny? If there are only good things to eat, they will eat good things. What do ya know?!?! I have even heard several time this week as they are snacking on watermelon, grapes, and cherries (instead of granola bars, chips, and crackers) how much they love this food we "have" to eat. Captain C called his buddy this morning and got his mom's pancake recipe and made that for b'fast....and loved it. So far so good.

OK, I got busy earlier and forgot to post it. Since then, not as good. I decided to make the kids applesauce again (made some yesterday and it was great) since we are all needing a little sweet tooth fix. Apples, cinnamon, sugar, and water. Four ingredients. The boys peeled and cut the apples and I put it on to cook and sat down to lunch. Lunch of spinach, ham, and cheese. I am tired of the wonderful bread, so made a "salad"....but didn't have any dressing with 7 or less ingredients so it was a little blah. No biggie. I can do this. Then...

"What's that smell?"

"Does it look smokey in here to you?"


I washed out as much as I could....this is going to take some elbow grease, folks. Ugh.


  1. Scrape out whatever the fruit or vegetable is and then use oven cleaner and let it set outside.
    I did the same exact thing last week, but it was burnt on honey and boy was it ever stuck.

    1. Thank you! I'm trying this right now but will try the other of it doesn't work. Yuck. House still stinks!

  2. You need to pick up some balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, or apple cider vinegar, and olive oil for dressing your salads.

    1. Details (and clearly, I need baby steps if it involves cooking in any way!). I was thinking of putting olive oil in there but that seemed...weird ;) HELP!


I would love to hear your thoughts!!
