Meal plans and the week ahead

We've been having a really fun weekend with a swimming playdate on Friday and a day trip to Holland yesterday. So I guess its probably time to work today and get some things done in the yard. Although we may still make some time to play and go water skiing at my aunt's.  We'll see what the day brings, but we do want to make the most of the water since it's supposed to cool off this week.  I'm not ready for the cool off - I love the heat (as long as I can also escape to the a/c when needed).  Its too soon to be cooling down already.  We want more beach time, at least one more trip to the splash pad, more water ski time, more pool time!  Guess we'll have to start putting the solar cover on the pool.  And hopefully it'll heat up again next week. 

We've got lots of fun things planned this week. Monday, I'm going to a yoga class in Swartz Creek with a friend. Tuesday, I am going to the local WAPF chapter meeting.  We're hearing about gut health this week, so it should be a good one again.  Then we are going to the ski show with my BIL, SIL, niece, and nephews on Tuesday evening. Wednesday we are taking advantage of the cooler weather and going hiking. Kevin is helping his brother with some stuff.  Thursday Kevin is going mountain biking with some buddies and Carson and I are possibly meeting some friends at a local park for some play time. we are taking a family hike.  Friday I have to pick up the milk and CSA order after work. Saturday we are headed down to Belle Isle for the day with some friends. So it'll be a busy, but super fun week!

I have no idea what I am going to do this week as far as extras. I know I'll freeze beans, sweet corn, and zucchini. But I haven't thought much past that. We're getting some tomatoes, plus lots of zucchini, so maybe I'll make some zucchini salsa. We'll see if I end up with some time later this week.

Sounds like a fun week! I hope yoga goes well.

Are you going to do a post after your WAPF meeting? I'd be interested to hear what you find out.

Yummy meals. Love corn on the cob! But one taste (only a half ear) this season already did me in :( So sad. Hopefully some day when I can digest food better I can enjoy it again.

I'm hoping to do a post after the meeting, yep. Hoping to hear lots of great stuff, though I expect to hear lots of stuff I've already heard/read, too. But I always do learn a few things, at least. And its good motivation.

I love corn on the cob, too! It's not paleo/primal, but I decided it'd be an exception of ours since we all love it and look forward to this time of year for the fresh corn on the cob. :)
