Are your children fans of chicken nuggets?  I know that mine just love chicken nuggets.  Sometimes when we are having our E.H.M. Breaded Chicken Tenders I modify a few pieces with this recipe.

Pumpkin Quinoa Muffins Good morning, homeschoolers! I hope your school year is going well! As I wrote last time, I like to keep a variety of muffins in the freezer so the kids can grab their own breakfast while I cling to every last possible moment of sleep – um, I mean assemble the supplies to make dioramas of The Iliad and The Odyssey, which we always read in the original Greek. Muffins and quick breads keep pretty well in the freezer, especially if you use them up fairly quickly. I recently made double-batches of my 4 favorite...

Breakfast from the Freezer Good morning, homeschoolers! Are you back to school yet? We started last week. In anticipation of being exhausted from teaching my third-grader his multiplication tables, I spent a few hours on Saturday stocking my freezer with healthy muffins for grab-&-go breakfasts. Muffins and quick breads keep pretty well in the freezer, especially if you use them up fairly quickly. I made double-batches of my 4 favorite recipes, and ended up with ten dozen muffins. Ten dozen, people. I was awarding myself some serious...

Ah, homeschooling. A wonderful way of life. I love it, I truly do. But after a long day juggling school and laundry and phone calls and cleaning and all the other demands placed on a mom…well, I know it’s a personal shortcoming, but sometimes I just don’t feel like cooking dinner. Eating out isn’t very practical or very healthy, so every month or two,...
