Today actually brought minimal challenges for us as far at the Rules are concerned. We stayed home all day so temptations were low. I made some whole wheat bread and Whole Wheat Pretzel Bites to stock the freezer for back-to-school lunches next week. Since it was another rainy day in Pittsburgh, I decided to try a Make Your Own Butter recipe we got from one of the teachers at school back in May. I took pictures and plan to share details with you all soon. The girls had a blast and the butter came out sinfully good! We smeared it on Ak Mak crackers and fresh bread. So yummy! I stayed true to the Pledge today but I definitely ate way too many carbs :)
Tomorrow is our last day and our plans involve my younger daughter spending a few hours with my parents. I'm planning on packing some snacks for her as well as a few pieces of bread so my mom can make her a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch. This is one of those times that the option of flexibility would be a nice treat to have!
