Homeschool Wednesday

This morning the kiddos woke to what Annie called, "Baby snow". Despite the small amount, it might as well have been Christmas. They were so excited about playing outside. So, today's homeschool lesson is a hands-on experience of seasonal weather. No doubt the snow will be melted by the time the school kids get home, but Iain has been outside since he woke up. He skipped breakfast and got into his snow gear all by himself. He's growing up!


Speaking of breakfast, in an effort to streamline the before-I've-had-coffee-don't-talk-to-me-yet meal, I concocted this stuff. Looks like something you would leap out of bed for, doesn't it? Before you accuse me of feeding my kiddos homemade dog treats, let me explain. It's "The Good Stuff." Really, it is!

Ingredients

1/3 cup Coconut Oil, melted
3/4 cup ground Pumpkin Seeds
1/4 - 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
*These amounts are approximate, please adjust based on your preferences.
Iain ate two bowls of this after finally coming inside.


Directions

1. Combine ingredients
2. Pour into ice cube tray, filling 3/4 full
3. Refrigerate until firm.
4. Pop out and store in air-tight container in the fridge.

To use, place one cube in bowl of hot cooked oatmeal. Mix in as it melts.
And just for fun, here's our baby. She's growing like a weed. A really, really fat weed that smiles and drools and on very rare occasions has been known to poop. We love you, Lucy!

I may have to start copying your idea for oatmeal. I've been searching for a new breakfast food idea that is easy, quick, and healthy. This sounds perfect!
