This week, my new added challenge is no living room laptop time. Kitchen table only. That serves two purposes really. It keeps me limited even on how much "research" I do, how much I spend on study time and how much I spend reading blogs and writing my own. This is day one.... we will see how it goes. The study one might be hard.
Our weather was nice this weekend and yesterday, now we are back to drizzle..... NASTY. But in the wisdom of an almost 5 year old, I am reminded that God gives us rain so things grow: and so He does, in more ways than one. At least we had fun in the park at the spray ground yesterday with Sarah's "BFF" and her parents.
Last week I shared Mrs. Kombucha's off spring with our Chiropractor... Now his family will be able to enjoy her as well.
Tonight our homeschool group is having their "graduation" for the year. Sarah will be given a certificate from us for her achievements this year. We also made No Bake Cookies to take along. Yummy in the tummy.... I like to think of them as kind of healthy. Kind of..... not all the way healthy... but well, they do have oatmeal in them. *grin* PLEASE, don't shatter my illusions!
And the funniest thing Bear has said to me today so far, "Mommy, I'm wearing your shoes, so that makes me the mommy now..."
My recipe is a little different than some. Here it is! Click on the title for a printer friendly version.
NOBAKE COOKIES (Momma’s Recipe)
1/2 cup milk
1 cube of butter
4 tbls unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 C. crunchy peanut butter
3 C. quick-cooking oatmeal
1/2 C. coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium pan, combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa. Bring to a boil, and cook for appx 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in peanut butter, oats, coconut, and vanilla. Drop by the spoonful onto wax or parchment paper. Let cool until they are set.
What kind of fun things do you like to cook with your children? I would love to hear about them!
