Als ich wisse das Morgen der Erde enden wuerde, immernoch wurd ich mein Apfelbaum pflanzen.

Even if I knew the world would perish tomorrow, I would still plant my apple tree. - Martin Luther

"Factory work's easier on the back, and I don't mind it, understand, but a man becomes what he does. Got to watch that. That's why I keep at farmin' although the crops haven't ever throve. It's the doin' that's important." Madison Wheeler in Blue Highways by William Least Heat Moon

First Meal

Reading Girl Cooks!

Part of the fun is in the tasting, right?
My kids are not picky eaters.  I think that there are several reasons that they have more advanced tastes than most kids their age.  Certainly, one of the reasons, is that I encourage, and sometimes demand, that my kids cook.  The more time they spend in the kitchen, the better they get.  This was Reading Girl's first meal.  She made it all by herself and would not accept any help. I did help run the mixer and take the hot pizza pan out of the oven, but other than that - she was on her own.  She was so proud, and I enjoyed the night off.  The kids cook a meal entirely on their own about once a month.  The Woodsman usually cleans up.  I love to cook, but I also love a night off.

The Menu...

Mini pizzas (handmade dough of course) with pineapple, mushroom and plain.

Greek salad:  I liked this recipe so much I now make it myself.

Fruit Kabobs- we splurged and bought grocery store fruit!

Chocolate fruit dippers - I think she tasted the extra.

Two Great Kid's cookbooks...

Believe it or not, this is actually a very healthy cookbook.  Most of the recipes are vegetarian too! 
The ultimate guide to seasonal eating adapted for kids. 

Ready to Eat!

She was so proud, and so was I.
