PostHeaderIcon I Like Big Crops and I Can Not Lie

Canning Mason JarsSome days I just want to stay in bed curled up under my blankie. Unfortunately, I have a family that likes to eat and have clean clothes. I always wondered how this became Mom’s job. I understand that back in the day, the men worked and the women did home stuff. Now that women work too, how is it we still do everything else? Food for thought.

I really don’t recall how it happened but, it happened. In August I started canning our garden. I began with pickles because we had an over abundance of cucumbers. After canning over 50 jars of pickles and eating a cucumber everyday for 2 months, I went out and pulled the vines. I had officially been cucumbered out. I learned a valuable lesson for this year. I really don’t need 3 cucumber plants. I am going with only 2 this year. We have so many and there are still 12 jars in my pantry.

After the pickle craze, I decided to go to out local orchard and pick a few bushels of apples. The kids had so much fun doing this but, we will definitely go on a warmer day this year. Everyone wanted apple sauce, which I am not a huge fan of. 25 pints later, it was a hit! It was so good that I had to bring all of my supplies 500 miles to my Mom’s to make her some, per her demand.. ahem… request. read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon 2nd Annual Healthy Families, Helping Kids with PFK and Meijer

Many families are thinking about eating healthier as the new school year commences. I know that the schools state that the lunches are “healthy” but, after spending many lunch times with the boys last year, I am not happy with them eating it. I do humor Royal sometimes and let him get it because he asks. I am happy you tell you that Produce for Kids wants to help kids eat healthfully at home AND in the classroom.

Produce for Kids is teaming up with Meijer stores for the second annual Healthy Families, Helping Kids campaign to raise money for local health and nutrition-based classroom projects through DonorsChoose.org. read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon GoGo squeeZ……Applesauce To Go

“GoGo” is really an idea and a way of looking at the world. People tend to over complicate things when the truth is a simple fact right in front of them. “GoGo” is the simple unstructured and active play that is pure goodness for kids (and the kid in all of us). “GoGo” is about having the imagination to create delight in any situation.

At GoGo squeeZ, their mission is to make it easier for kids & families to be a little healthier and happier. They work in the magical space where kids are happy and parents are affirmed. GoGo kids ask for healthier snacks and love to play outside. GoGo moms get to say YES! more often. Our purpose is to spread more “GoGo” love. They invite you to join them. They invite you to play. The more the merrier.
