Homegrown & Home ground!

I am growing a parsley plant in my kitchen window. A few weeks ago, I chopped the stems and set the leaves to dry on a pretty dish. Today I ground the dry leaves in my janky little mill. Now I have parsley seasoning!

Not only is it clean and delicious, but there’s no waste in refilling my cute little jars. Plus, writing on the chalkboard labels is always fun.

Journal Jar!

We have a jar full of journal prompts. We fill them out ourselves, and occasionally asks friends and family to add their ideas. Each morning, we draw a prompt and write about it for five minutes. Whatever we know, think, wonder about said topic will do!

When the time is up, we tally our word count and share our entries . It’s a fun and creative way to start the school day.

Homemade at the Homestead

My best friend/husband Shaun has decided to cut back on added sugar. In his effort to do so, we’ve realized how much sugar is added to just about everything! I’ve been working on homemade versions of his favorite treats, including Italian dressing for his daily sandwich.
