Menu Plan

Yes, I'm a little behind on the menu planning this week. I was actually at the grocery store at 10:30 last night restocking my kitchen. With the trip to Mexico coming up, I was out of a lot of stuff.

I have a new recipe that I'm trying this week. A friend, Amanda, sent it to me and it sounds great! I hope it will be a hit with the kiddos:) I'll let you know!

Tuesday: Stromboli (see recipe below)
Wednesday: grilled salmon, baked potatoes & veggies
Thursday: macaroni & cheese with veggies
Friday: baked chicken, mashed potatoes & veggies
Saturday: pasta
Sunday: out-to-eat

Quick & Easy Stromboli
(from my friend Amanda)

2 eggs, separated
2 Tbls. vegetable oil
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. parsley
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 cups shredded cheese (your fave)
Meat for filling*
Veggies (optional)**
1 can pizza crust
Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350F. Mix egg yolks, oil, oregano, parsley and garlic powder in a small bowl. Roll out pizza crust onto a greased cookie sheet. Press the dough out just like you would when making pizza. Spreak the egg mixture over the dough--it will only be enough for a thin layer. Layer in your filling choices down the middle of the dough, like you are making a burrito. Once you have your filling in, bring the edges of the pizza dough together to seal the meat and cheese inside. Turn the stromboli over so that the seam is on the bottom. Brush with the egg white. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350F for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
This is great served with dipping sauces such as Ranch dressing, marinara or garlic butter.
*You can use deli turkey or ham, pepperoni, etc.
**sauteed onion, bell peppers, mushrooms, olive, etc.


Welcome home Lora!

Can I come to eat at your house this week? It's too hot to cook at mone :-)
I made your stromboli tonight. It was delicious! I can't wait to read what you'll cook after being inspired by Julie & Julie. :)
So glad you liked the stromboli! I can't wait to try it again with different fillings:)

The Making of an Egyptian Death Mask

We are learning all about the ancient world this year with Story of the World I and loving it! We've been learning a lot about Egypt, of course, which is completely fascinating. Most recently we have studied the New Kingdom of Egypt, which includes the story of King Tut. So we decided making an Egyptian death mask in the style of King Tut's would be a fun project. First since it was too cold at the time to paper mache in the garage (it probably would have frozen instead of dried-ha) and it was too messy to do it in the house, we decided to pick up a couple of cheap craft masks at Hobby Lobby. Next we cut out cardboard shapes to complete the shape of the death mask, attaching them with hot glue. Vince even put a little detail on the *beard* with the hot glue per The Princess' request. Then the kiddos started to paint them with this metallic gold tempera paint. It worked okay for the cardboard, but would not coat the plastic of the mask. We thought maybe a second coat

Door Hanger Chore Charts

My kids have had a chore chart for a while.  It's one of those magnetic boards and they share it.  However, it's not by their rooms and often they (and I) forget to update it.  Plus it's a little bulky.   When I saw the concept of a door hanger chore chart on Pinterest, I loved it!  It was compact, right there were the kiddos could see it coming out and going into their rooms, and it costs almost nothing to make.   I headed over to one of my favorite stores: Hobby Lobby, of course.  They  have these little wooden door hangers for .79.  I also grabbed a couple of packets of decorative buttons for $1.99 each.  I already had the clothes pins and the paint so those cost me nothing.   I began by painting the door hangers (I used tempera paints because that's what I had).  Then I grabbed a fine point Sharpie and the clothes pins and started writing chores on them, making sure to write them correctly so they will clip on the right direction.   The left

End of the Week Wrap-Up {week 8}

Well, the first quarter of our school year is almost over!  Yea!! This has been one of those weeks where we were all a little tired, there was some sickness, and there wasn't a lot of exciting stuff on the calendar ...but we stayed the course and got a lot done.  Love that feeling of accomplishment! On our "Fun Friday" we had our devotional time, did some Life of Fred, played some American trivia, worked on stories with our Story Cubes, and then wrapped up with some leaf painting.   We had seen these cute illustrations in the current issue of Family Fun magazine and thought this would be a fun project to try--and they were!  I even did one :)   Just find some pretty autumn leaves around your yard or on a nature walk, grab some tempera paints and fine-tipped brushes, and paint some fun woodland creatures on your leaves!   Can you see the animals on these leaves? Then we ended our day with a family movie ( Soul Surfer ), some pizz
