Home Cooking/Aus der Küche

We have had some great accomplishments in the kitchen.  The little girls shelled peas from our CSA.  It's a good lesson about what peas actually look like.

Healthy Gluten-free Cooking: 150 Recipes for Food LoversJonathan baked an Irish soda bread ALL by himself from Gluten-free Healthy Cooking.  I only entered the kitchen at the end to help him determine if the bread was actually done.

I made some yummy chocolate almond butter popsicles from Elana's Pantry.  I substituted maple syrup for the stevia and adjusted the cocoa and water a bit, though.

By the way, some people have had problems with leaving comments on my blog.  Try a different browser, like Google Chrome.  I cannot leave comments with Internet Explorer on other blogs right now.  Something is not working right.  

In den letzten Tagen haben wir in der Küche gewerkelt.  Die kleinen Mädchen haben Erbsen von unserem CSA Bauerhof gepuhlt.  So lernt man, wie Erbsen eigentlich aussehen.  Jonathan hat ein irisches Natronbrot aus Healthy Gluten-free Cooking ganz alleine gebacken.  Ich habe die Küche nur zum Schluß betreten, um zu sehen, ob das Brot gar war.  Ich habe leckeres Schokoladenmandelbutter-Leckeis von Elanas Speisekammer gemacht.  Elanas Rezept war mit Stevia gesüßt, doch ich habe Ahornsirup genommen und auch den Wasseranteil und Kakaoanteil etwas verändert.      

Noch eine kurze Anmerkung:  Einige Leser haben Schwierigkeiten, Kommentare hier hin zu schreiben.  Am besten nimmt man einen anderen Browser, z. B. Google Chrome.  Mit Internet Explorer kann ich bei anderen Blogs im Moment auch keine Kommentare schreiben, irgendetwas funktioniert dort nicht bei Blogger.  


  1. The bread looks great! We are currently in planning mode, as well as attempting to get the house in order.

    Hope you all have a good week

  2. Hi San, thanks so much. I like quite a few recipes from that cookbook. By the way, are you up early or going to be really late? Don't we have 5 hours time difference? It's 9:49 p.m. here.

  3. Up really late I crawled into bed at 3am this morning!! Benedict blood sugars dangerously high. Sara very kindly kept me company as I'd crawled into bed the previous night at 2am, the night before 1am! So I did home school planning and she crocheted!

    Hope you are having a good day.

  4. Oh, I feel so sorry for you. It must be like having a baby in the house! I hope you'll catch up on sleep soon. How is the school planning coming along?

  5. Have had some very helpful input from Melisa Nielsen, so I'm waiting on accessing the grade three e-book and we are currently playing catch up on some missed grade two math.

    I don't know how you do it, planning for all of yours bar sweet Flora but no doubt she too wants to join in!

    I'd swap you for hot weather than grey cloudy days!

  6. I hope that everything will work out with your new plans. It will be interesting to see how your and my third grade will be similar and/or different.

    You know, my planning has become much more low key over the years. I use Live Education! for my main lessons and use the Mercy Academy learning style evaluations to pick some books/materials to supplement Live Education! I make sure that I have some textbooks/workbooks for English and Math and also for history, geography, and science to fall back on if somebody (including myself gets sick), etc. The rest is living books and materials for foreign languages, art, music, etc. (Here Charlotte Mason comes in). Tuesdays is our workbook/textbook day when I don't teach, but attend to household matters. Veronika needs more attention, but Flora just plays or tries to participate. Right now we do school in the mornings, but I do planning in the afternoons (we are skipping foreign languages and music/art appreciation this month). This gives me time to sort things out.
