Small Successes Thursday, October 7th


It’s important for moms everyone to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week, we do exactly that.

1. I’ve managed to use or freeze most of the produce we’ve been getting each week from Bountiful Baskets. Hardly anything has spoiled, which is good because I hate wasting food. And I can now count blanching among my culinary skills!

2. I shipped a box off to my brother in Afghanistan. He’s a linguist in the Marines and they don’t have much out in the middle of the desert. I baked some cookies (hopefully they won’t be too stale by the time they get there!), picked up some used books since he is in desperate need of reading material, and even stuffed in a few packages of Ramen noodles since they need quick, hot meal options available. Thank goodness for the special military flat rate shipping boxes!

3. I’ve started pureeing and freezing fruits and veggies for Jacinta. She is a couple weeks into eating cereal and loves it! We will be ready with our fruit and veggie cubes when she starts eating more foods.

What were your successes this week?

  1. Great week! I didn't make fruits & veggies until our fourth was a baby & am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. They're much tastier (& cheaper!) than the jarred stuff & not hard to make at all. I'm sure your brother will LOVE his care package, esp. the homemade cookies!
