Coffee Creamer Emergency!


OK so this isn’t exactly something I did with the kiddos but it is something I did because I need my energy to be a good mom to the kiddos.

I ran out of coffee creamer yesterday – which is tantamount to the end of the world for me. I need my coffee. Coffee is what keeps me standing and moving… nevermind smiling and thinking. Without coffee, those things are just not a part of my day.

So I was desperate. And desperate times call for desperate measures.

So I logged into google and found a recipe for homemade coffee creamer and thank goodness it was simple, otherwise I wouldn’t be here – writing this post. I would be searching our cabinets for those chocolate-covered coffee beans I stuffed back behind something over a year ago after deciding it was time for a diet.

HERE is the fantastic website where I found my recipe. Full marks for making the post funny but really I’m just grateful it was easy to read for someone whose brain was not yet on.

Whew. What an adventure.

It’s definitely Monday!


Everyday Cooking Ironies 1

Sunny side up¬†They don’t even need me anymore.

Well, not every time anyway…

Recently, my son went into the kitchen and fixed eggs “Sunny Side Up” all on his own.

Where did he learn this you ask, if not from me?

From a science DVD: Moody Science Series “Facts of Faith”.

If you haven’t seen these, they really are a FANTASTIC resource, whether you home-school or not. They teach children about science in a fun and interactive way.

My children watch them over and over and over.

factsoffaith_dvd_lgYou really should consider investing in them for your own children.

They’re wonderful!

And apparently, they can also teach cooking… LOL!

Just to clarify, he didn’t do this without supervision. I’ve told him he has to have permission and supervision to cook anything so he told me what he wanted to do and I went to watch.

The irony here is that I’ve never been very good with Sunny Side Up eggs (or Fried Eggs as some call them) so I was not much help to him. I suppose I can take a little credit because I taught him the basics of cooking eggs but the credit for how good he is with these particular eggs lays entirely with Dr. Moody.

And I’m thrilled. I don’t have to worry about not doing them well, because HE DOES!

The rest of the video was really interesting too. LOL!
