Sweet Corn Fritters

Sweet Corn Fritters with a salad makes for a healthy summer meal! Find the simple recipe on Shutterbean.com!

I’m on the lookout for simple recipes that will change up my breakfast/lunch/dinner game. That’s why I just added Repertoire by Jessica Battilana to my cookbook collection.  I met her last month at my friend Sarah’s book event for Every Day is Saturday and learned we have very similar food taste!

You can see I’ve already marked a TON of recipes that I’d like to try.

Organizer Brain Sidenote: I always put a post-it of what I’m currently making at the bottom of the cookbook so I can easily flip to it while I work.

The first recipe I tried:

Sweet Corn Fritters.

Savory pancakes with bits of green onions peppered throughout. The texture is both a bit fluffy and a bit crunchy.

They are definitely going into my quick meal arsenal. I can’t wait to pull this one out for company!

Intentions for the Week

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:

Happy Monday, friends!

We are on week 28 of 2019.  This is what week 28 looked like last year. 

How was your weekend? Ours was filled with work and play! We went to the Marin County Fair after spending all Saturday cleaning the house. We were up late this weekend with friends and we had the best time!!!  WORTH IT.  Especially the funnel cake!

It was the first weekend in a long time that we didn’t have a baseball game to watch so it was nice having time to work together on stuff around the house. It’s amazing how much can get done when you set a timer and ask for help. I suggest doing so if you’re feeling like you can’t possibly motivate your family to clean. It’s very helpful when people are motivated to beat the time.

I’m away for a few days for work this week so I’m going to try to get as many Intentions for the Week done as possible!  Let’s get my head in the game.

Currently June 2019

Well, here we are 3 days into July. My brain cannot comprehend that. June started off really busy and then toward the end, I gave myself a chance to breathe and focus time on my family.

Here we are, month 6 of 2019.  Here’s a page from my currently workbook !

This practice has been so fun and gratifying. We’re halfway through the year. WOW.

June’s spread was all about The Handwriting Club because that’s where most of my energy went to this month.

I am really glad I built in a way to share, practice and work on myself and my handwriting with this workbook.

Also, accountability helps greatly, so thanks!

We are now on WEEK 27 of 2019.

Stay tuned for that.  This weekend was filled with baseball (we are going the All-Star games!), a BBQ at my house and a family dinner in the city. We have a lot of housework to catch up on and projects to finish around the house and some summer adventures to plan. Still working through our Summer Bucket List!    Ok, time to get my head in the game and type up my Intentions for the Week.
