Summer: Kids in the Kitchen

E loves crepes. So much so, that the recipe is taped inside the kitchen cabinet where our pancake recipe is posted.

So tonight the dinner he chose to make and learn was crepes. He got a lot of spatula practice, and stovetop/hot pan practice, and while waiting for each to cook, he set the table and got toppings on like I do. Excellent. He was so proud of himself, and rightly so.

Rainbow Pasta. They loved it. And, they still aren't big fans of pasta. Plus, it invoked teamwork, math, art (color mixing), and cooking.

I used the technique from this post:

**And, luckily, no one but the kids will be eating this, since M's hair dipped into it during the picture... At least she's just showered too.

Wedding Cookies: Peanut Butter

6 dozen. Only 27 dozen to go! Easy peasy.

That's All Folks!!

No more lunches! Even though they only take minutes to pack, it'll be a nice break. And, I'm going to have the kids pack any lunches they need for day camps or outings. Ease  them in to packing their own lunches for school next year.

Housewarming: PW and SK

Sunday Stew from Pioneer Woman (beef stew with carrots and turnips served with mashed potatoes), and Blue Sky Bran Muffins from Smitten Kitchen (with blackberries and Pete's preserved apples). The house smells heavenly.

Just prepping up some meals for my sister whose family just moved into a new house!!!

Wordless Wednesday: Lunches

Finally Friday: Bread!

I finally baked some sandwich bread. I need to tweak the recipe a bit... Less yeast, longer rise time perhaps. We'll see what round two looks like.

If the kids insist on white bread, at least it can be homemade.

Lunch: Not PB&J

Wordless Wednesday: Out of bread...
