Chiplet Adventures (part 11): Review Week

I decided it was time to do some review with the Chiplet since we had done so many letters and he certainly knew some better than others. This was a chance for me to assess the progress. But it should be pointed out that he is never consistent with things. So, even if he seems to not know something one day, he might actually know it. Basically, he isn’t the type to “perform” by request. Your kid might be the same.

Tips-y Tuesdays: Stuffing Leftovers

The days after Thanksgiving…what do you run out of first? We always are left with lots of starches and run out of turkey first. Part of the “problem” is that we make lots of starches and only the one turkey breast. So, what to do? Well, rolls are great for a lunch sandwich to switch things up a bit. Mashed potatoes can go with lots of proteins. But what about stuffing? It is generally best with poultry, but this year I decided to casserole-it. It already had sausage in it, so I figured I would turn it into a breakfast casserole.

Friday Favorites 33

How has it been so many months since the last one of these? I guess I’ve been cooking my favorites instead of acquiring a list. The other funny thing is I’ve been more interested in savory dishes than desserts. But I will also admit that I’ve been making lots of old favorites over and over, or making slight changes to them instead.

Fudgelet Adventures (part 23): Beginning Addition

As a former math teacher, I obviously have mixed feelings about doing math with my child. Does that surprise you? I am both excited to teach him things, but also worried about messing up his math future since beginning math is not my forte. As a result, I did some with him previously, but had been waiting until 1) he showed more interest in numbers and 2) I had done more research into good early math skills and strategies.

Christmas Break

Hello, everyone who comes by here! I just wanted to post that I will be taking a little break on here. We have had a lot going on with good stuff (and not so good stuff) so I didn’t have time to make extra posts before our travel plans started. I hope to have at least one more post in 2019, but if not, I know I will be back in January. Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

Topic-Changing Thursdays: The Chiplet is 2 Years Old!

Can you believe it? My little baby is definitely a full-on toddler now. It’s still hard to think of him that way just because he seems so small next to his big brother, and it’s hard to believe that the Fudgelet is a big kid now. But, that’s how time goes.

Tips-y Tuesdays: Last Minute Tips

Sometimes I go to make a recipe and think I have all of the necessary ingredients but then forget something. This seems to happen a lot lately. Almost like I’m sleep-deprived? Hahaha. Well, anyway, it’s not like I have all of the time to just run out and pick up what I need when I realize it, so I have learned to be flexible.
