Jennifer’s Journal April 2019

by livingfreelygf

Where did April go? Of course this month has been crazy busy because it is crunch time for the cookbook. My first deadline is May 15th and then ALL of the recipes are due June 15th. With having to make most of them around 3 times, this means I am making 4 recipes a day. When I only have to do 1-2 seems so easy!

This is our first April back in California in 3 years. I remember why I wanted to move so bad before. I have been sick for the entire month of April. It actually started in March, but I had to take 2 rounds of antibiotics in April, and I am still recovering. Both kids have been sick numerous times and now my son is sick again. Seasonal allergies are torturing my daughter and I. We can’t even go outside without our eyes itching so bad we want to scratch them out and then my nose starts running like a faucet. It is incredibly unpleasant.

Claire also got road rash on her arm from a fall and it got infected fast. So, lots of good times. This month I did a campaign with Mr. Coffee about prepping for brunch, a recipe for Plus CBD for a delicious Strawberry Lemonade, my Hubby contributed a recipe for his Sheet Pan Nachos, and right now there is a Munk Pack giveaway happening.

Yesterday I had my girlfriends over to work on a campaign for National Prosecco Day, I mean that’s my favorite holiday! So here is a sneak peek of some of the fun pictures from that.

So much fun! Next month I will be attending the Everything Food Bloggers Contest and then no more traveling until manuscript is done! I truly can’t wait to share this book with all of you. I’m really proud of all of the recipes!

My Hubby and I also went to Sausilito, CA which had some great gluten free options. I also got to try the new restaurant in San Ramon, CA called MIXT and it was delicious!

I am excited about all of the fresh fruit that is growing locally right now. I can see the cherries sprouting and I picked up fresh strawberries last week. It is the time of year when I will go to the local farm stands every week and buy the fruit in bulk.  I wash and trim everything and then freeze it so we have plenty for the winter. We use it for smoothies and ice creams. Yum! I hope April treated you well!
