Weekly Photo Collage :: Wrapping up the Month of May

*this post contains affiliate links, see my disclosure page

Wow, May went by quickly!

It’s been several weeks since I have done a photo collage of our week.  The boys started playing baseball so I have been at baseball games instead of in front of the computer, and that’s how it should be!

We’ve been plugging away at the remainder of our school subjects.  We had a garage sale and Jacob made several duct tape wallets.  He sold one!  He had a great time getting ready for the sale and an even better time being “in charge” of the money.  Great hands on homeschool math for a couple of days.

 We saw friends and family that we haven’t seen in a while.  

We took the kids to an indoor water park for the night. It’s one of the places on our 10 Best Michigan Field Trip/Day Trips list.  We loved staying at Zehnder’s, we could all fit in one room!!

Memorial Day Weekend Fun & Food

We had a quiet Memorial Day Weekend.  We worked on some projects, took a nice long bike ride, and of course there is always time to eat!  I tried a few new recipes.
The Sloppy Lentil Joe’s recipe is on one of Pinterest boards.  Not only was it tasty, talk about frugal!  I’m making another recipe from my Pinterest board tonight, I’ll add a note to the pin and let you know what we think.  

Here’s the recipe for Thai Slaw, it’s from the book My Beef with Meat.

Thai Slaw

1 1/4 cup salsa
1/4 natural peanut butter
1 T pure maple syrup
1 T water
1 t tamari sauce {soy}
2 t peeled, minced ginger
1/2 head finely shredded green cabbage
1 red bell pepper {or cherry tomatoes}
1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup raw peanuts, coarsely chopped

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the salsa, peanut butter, maple syrup, water, tamari, ginger, and until uniformly blended into a sauce.
Pour the sauce over the shredded cabbage and toss.  This was even better the next day!
The recipe for the Chocolate Cake is on my facebook page, Team Dunlap Fitness - yes a “healthy” chocolate cake!
