Betty Crocker Fun

We home school, but Box Tops products are still a vital part of our schooling.  Mainly because they are great products that we use to learn a few things. When MyBlogSpark offered me the chance to receive this:

 
I said, "YES!"
When the package arrived, there was a box of Betty Crocker family size milk chocolate brownies, iclips with cute cupcakes, two notepads, Box Top pencils, a neoprene lunch bag and a cupcake bag! 

 
I pulled out my trusty Baker's Edge pan and called in our budding cook.

She's got on her apron and she's ready to do some learning.

Learning to measure ingredients.

Cracking eggs. We crack eggs into a bowl in case any shells might fall in and then we don't have to pick them out of the batter.

Mixing is a very important skill. 

Almost as important as tasting.* 

MMMM brownies!

They get a big thumbs up.  

I do collect Box Tops and pass them along to friends who have children in public schools.  According to the Box Tops Website, the program is available to home school associations with 15 or more students.  

The winner of the Giveaway is Kelly!  Thanks for reading!!

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Journey to Love Matt Mikalatos

Did you read Sky Lantern ? No? Well, go read it and then come back for this book. Yes, order them at the same time! I promise you, they'll both be worth it and they really are part of one another. Here's why, Matt Mikalatos lost a very dear friend, Shasta, he tells part of their story in Sky Lantern and fulfills a promise to with Journey to Love.  Journey to Love is a little book, almost a 40 day devotional with little vignettes of love and then ways for you to reflect that love and an exercise to grow in that aspect of love. It's not an easy book because love isn't an easy thing. the reflections and exercises sometimes take a few days to work through or a lifetime if we're honest.  I was touched by how Mikalatos decided to fulfill his promise to Shasta, how he managed to leave a little bit of their love on the written page for people to witness for years to come. It's beautiful and heartbreaking and challenging and rewarding. To be able to have a little glimpse
