I have some photos to show of what me and my girls were doing in June and today:
Since the girls are out of school for the summer, we've declared Mondays to be "Pinterest Mondays". Basically, that means that we each take turns choosing something either from our pinterest or just in general to do. It adds some structure to the week. My younger DD chose to make bath bombs. We couldn't find round molds so we improvised using a popsicle maker, and then my younger DD just rolled the rest of the mixture into a ball with her hands. They came out good, considering we didn't have enough of the ingredients!
We also like making our own pizzas, using our own homegrown basil:
Lastly, today we made some pico de gallo (sp?) to eat with our meal for the Fourth of July. We used our own homegrown tomatoes and cilantro:
Here's the recipe for it:
1 1/2 lbs. plum tomatoes-cored, halved, and seeded (about 2 1/2 cups)
3/4 cup finely diced white onion
1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
-Cut the tomatoes into 1/4 inch pieces, and put into a bowl.
-Add the remaining ingredients and stir well to combine.
-Cover and allow to rest at room temperature for one hour for the flavors to meld.
