Recently Kelvin was studying the sun in school, so I made him and Ava a sun-themed snack to go along with it.  This is about the only time we’ve seen the sun in the last few days, so it was a welcome sight for everyone!  LOL  We didn’t even have to travel and print postcards in nyc to see a glimpse of sunshine.

All I did for each snack was lay a peach half upside down on a plate, cut carrot sticks into thin strips, and arrange them around the peach in a sunshine-pattern.  The kids thought it was super-cool….unfortunately, not cool enough to eat, though.  Oh well.  You win some, you lose some!




I made a delicious cabbage soup tonight.  Even the kids ate it…Kelvin loved it and Ava tolerated it, which is a big deal for my picky girl!

Crockpot Cabbage Soup

1 pound browned ground beef or turkey
1/2 small head of cabbage, shredded
3 carrots, peeled and sliced
3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
1 stalk celery, sliced
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
32 ounces beef broth
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. dill weed

Combine all ingredients in the crock pot.  Add enough water to cover the ingredients.  Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours.
