Our church has an awesome preschool through elementary school. I checked into it to know what my options were and discovered that they have a part time program on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. But the more we looked at that option, the less we liked it. I home school preschool, and we have invested a lot of time, prayer, and money into building our preschool curriculum. Consequently, I didn’t want them in a preschool environment two days a week on top of what we were doing at home. That would seem counter-productive.

Pectin is found in under ripe food and is a substance that will jell fruit juice when combined with sweeteners. I’m not all that crazy about growing my own fruit, being careful about the source of the food I buy, carefully preparing to preserve such fruit — then having to preserve it with a box of some Sure-Jel that came off of the Wal-Mart shelf. So, I researched into how to make my own pectin.Pin It
Here’s the menu for my family for the week of August 24th. As far as desserts go, my cake plate is empty. I think we need a cake. I have a coconut and saw a fresh coconut cake recipe. If I can find that recipe (I read it in a doctor’s office several weeks ago) I think I’ll give it a go. Kaylee’s favorite is coconut. We have a cookie jar about half filled with Oatmeal Raisin Cinnamon Chip Cookies that Gregg and I made with homemade cinnamon chips (we didn’t like the ingredients in the Hershey’s brand.) I’ll be posting that recipe and process, and likely will make him another batch to mail to him with a box that has to go out next week. Kaylee has also requested chocolate chunk cookies (recipe to follow) for her lunches next week.Pin It
Logic dictates that if Peking Man were an intermediate sub-human species, one of man’s evolutionary ancestors, that lived for even a few hundred generations, there should be abundant fossil remains available today.Pin It
I believe that God has a purpose for us. I believe that ultimately, we will all know what our purpose was, and why we had certain situations, triumphs, defeats, etc. I also believe that if we are not living within God’s perfect will for our lives, that we are not following our purpose, then we will feel restless, discontent, possibly even edge toward depression.Pin It
My friend Kelly at Kelly the Kitchen Kop will be conducting a Real Food for Rookies Class!
Peaches just taste like summertime to me. I love biting into a sun-warmed peach and having the burst of juice and sweet flesh fill my mouth. I had a big basket of peaches recently and wanted to capture some of that summer sunshine for dessert that night. So I made a fresh peach pie as if it were an apple pie. It was amazing.Pin It
It’s no wonder that 53% of American girls are unhappy with their bodies, and that by age 17, 78% are dissatisfied. It’s also no wonder that spending 3 minutes looking at fashion magazines lowers the self esteem of 80% of women.Pin It
