So I was looking forward to drinking a cup of my free coffee for breakfast? Yeah, it kind of didn't happen. Sarah woke up a few minutes before I did this morning. She sneaked herself upstairs while I was using the bathroom and promptly set about making breakfast. She fixed three bowls of oatmeal in the microwave. And she made me a cup of coffee. It was terribly sweet, and I was very touched.
The downside? Well, for starters, I don't actually like oatmeal (unless it's baked oatmeal. Which this wasn't). And...the coffee was instant. Easy for her to manage, but not my lovely Green Mountain coffee. :(
Never fear though, I ate some oatmeal and drank the coffee and complimented Sarah on both and thanked her. And I managed to sneak Natalie about half my oatmeal, so everyone was happy. ;) And I drank a cup of my Green Mountain coffee this afternoon. :-D
I use a lot of freebie curricula that I snag from various sources. We're finishing up a free Thanksgiving unit study that we didn't quite complete last week. Gotta get Thanksgiving done before Advent starts on Sunday! ;)
Supper tonight came partially from another free curriculum--The Children Around the World unit from which I pull ideas for co-op. I was fixing meatloaf and decided to fix rice for a side (I was out of potatoes). I remembered the curriculum had a recipe for yellow rice. Of course I didn't follow the recipe completely as written (hey, it's me!), but I did get a lovely dish of yellow rice. Sarah especially loved it. I do want to try the authentic version one day, but I didn't have all the ingredients tonight. Still, anything that jazzes up boring old rice is good in my book. ;)
That's all I've got for today. I've already talked about Sarah's aversion to edited poems on Facebook so I won't rehash that here. ;) Have a good night!
