Food for the mind and the body

I'm fortunate that I have kiddos (at least most of them) that love to read.  Most days, we have at least a half hour required quiet reading time, in addition to their regular school reading, of course.  It gives them some time to explore their own interests, whether it be animal stories, adventure books, or,  in the case of my girls, American Girl dolls! 

Yes, they are American Girl doll lovers and my 3 oldest all have the dolls-my oldest has two.  They love the books, the accessories, and anything related to it.  Amazingly, an American Girl shop is opening right here in Houston in August, and let's just say, they are more than looking forward to it!

This week, I tried my hand at baking some kaiser rolls.  It was tricky trying to get the design on the top, but they turned out great-nice and soft and great for sandwiches!  Will do again for sure...

My 14 year old volunteered to make breakfast one morning-a blessing!  He got up at 6:00 a.m. and made everyone eggs, bacon, and toast-all by  himself. It was very tasty, too, as everyone scarfed it down!  My daughter even decided to make cute little faces out of it.  Who needs I-Hop.  We can do the same thing here!

My son even offered to make another breakfast this weekend-french toast.  I could get used to this!
