Hello and a Smoothie Suggestion

Hello,

I am still alive.

I am currently listening to Hamilton, and reading The Bone Clocks. Both of them are fairly long stories and we have been busy with the holiday (Independence Day). If you want to read about some of the family adventures we have gotten ourselves into, you can check out my family/homeschool blog. Homeschooledbykids.

My 3 year old is tall enough to reach the fruit bowl, and this morning he started eating an apple, a banana, a plum, and a peach. Unfortunately, he did not finish any of them.

I put them in a blender, added some peach yogurt, a splash of milk and blended it all together. It was the best smoothie I had ever made, and both kids (3 & 1) drank it up so fast I could not get any pictures.

I did not use measurements so here is my best guess at the recipe:

 

Ingredients and instructions: 1 peach, 1 plum, 1 strawberry, 1 banana, 3 apple slices, 1/2 cup peach yogurt, 1/4 cup milk. Blend in blender for as long as it takes you to rinse the 3 plastic boxes and bowls your child used. If the smoothie is too thick, add a bit more milk and blend again.

Well, I hope to finish one of these books soon so that I can get back to the non-human thing I love best. Reading and talking about the books.

Bacon Chicken

I was going to make bacon-wrapped chicken, but we ended up using most of our bacon for other things this week. What’s a gal to do but cook anyways?

It turns out it is just as delicious and so much easier to cook your bacon with your chicken than to wrap the chicken inside of it.

This recipe takes approximately 15-20 minutes, and feeds as many people as you are willing to share with. (4-6 People)

  • Bacon – 4 Slices
  • Chicken – 2 breasts
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Other favorite spices
  1. Cut Bacon into large chunks.
  2. Cut chicken into bite size chunks.
  3. Sprinkle salt and pepper, fennel seeds, Mrs. Dash or whatever you feel like over your chicken.
  4. Add both to frying pan and cook over medium high heat until the chicken looks wrinkly and safe to eat.
  5. If you like your bacon a little more crisp, you could put the bacon in a minute or two before the chicken. At that point you could also drain some of the bacon fat out of the pan and pretend that we are healthy eaters.

Enjoy! I served mine with steamed carrots and cauliflower, and mashed potatoes and everyone loved it.
