Take the time to teach your children what they can and want to learn at each age. This will pay great time dividends for you as they gain these skills and can perform them independently.
Don’t be a supermom who does it all; be a smart mom who liberally engages the assistance of well-trained children. They will ‘rise up and call you blessed.’
And you will be!”
-quote from a recent homeschool email I recieved
The 1 yo. likes to stir, once in a while and munch all the while, but is mostly occupied with his own little pots and pans in his play kitchen nearby.
He heads over my way so I can 'taste' his creations.
This particular morning he sweetly serenaded us with Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
The little one's mouth was 'O'-shaped much of the time out there.
Here's our tasty tomato recipe:
25 roma tomatoes, halved
2 cloves garlic, halved
1/2 medium yellow onion, sliced
coarse sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste
Cover a baking sheet with the tomatoes cut side down. Tuck in garlic and onions. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with s&p. Roast in 350 degree oven for 40 minutes until skins turn brown and soft.
Transfer to blender and puree. Pour through a sieve to remove seeds/skins.
Place in small jars adding 1 tsp lemon juice to each jar before putting on the lids.
Process in hot water bath for 35 minutes.
We add spices and use ours as pizza sauce sometimes.
