Hoping something could be a blessing to a mom here:
For sewing tutorial, this week I found: How to Sew a Simple Girly Skirt from Pleasant View Schoolhouse.
Who said vegetables are boring? Check out Simple Ideas for Autumn Meals from VeganYumYum, and tell me what you think!
I have not made this Tortilla Soup from Gracious Hospitality yet, but now that I linked to it, I will be reminded to.
I tried this amazing, delectable Chocolate Pumpkin Pie from Dreena Burton’s new exciting cookbook “Eat, Drink & Be Vegan” last week and I am so making it again for Thanksgiving. And yes, it should please the omnivores’ palate.
If you are looking for a cool bento box for field trips or gift-giving, here’s my kids’ favorite: Laptop Lunchbox.
No more chore charts for us. Instead, we have Accountable Kids, and honestly, every kid that had been to our house and seen it, wanted one checked it out and asked me about it. So last year, I bought a few for gifts.
Schoolwork was light again this week. The children’s cousins didn’t have school and that meant playdates and sleepover. Two of the cousins helped me make Pineapple Coffee Cake. Aliyah and I prepared a lovely afternoon tea, and all the children came to the table dressed primly! The kids seem refreshed now, and hopefully, enthusiastic when we begin school next week!
