Last month I posted my favorite whole wheat pancake recipe using hard whole wheat. I promised in that post to share with you how to make Instant Pot Wheat Berries . A recipe that you definitely need to add to your arsenal for working through those buckets of food storage you may have on hand.

I had no intention of not posting for a month, in fact, I was gung ho and full of hope at the early onset of our mass quarantine. I had visions (cough, cough delusions) of getting so much done.


Fast forward to now, and I am hanging in there. But my ability to sit down and write has been diminished. I blame my adorable and extremely lovable new coworkers. They are very talented in the art of distraction. 


I feel torn and ripped in a million directions. I have never in my years of motherhood ever dreamed of being a homeschooling Mom.


I am a woman who knows her limits. But yet, here we are.


So if you are like me and hanging on for dear life trying to adult, work from home, AND be a teacher. We got this.


If you are one of the rare women who are thriving, I honestly admire you and pretty please email me your secrets!


On to why y’all came her in the first place – WHEAT BERRIES!
