Around the Treehouse

January Grocery Challenge: Last night's dinner was reheated Perogy Lasagna, sausage and sauerkraut from the Crockpot, carrot sticks, and no-bake brownies. Tonight: A pound of ground chicken baked with salsa and the one green pepper in the fridge--I'm also planning on using a few leftover flour tortillas, cut up--they'll probably go on top to get crispy near the end. There's also a casserole of brown rice in the oven, and a pan of orange-cranberry bread made with some end-of-the-bag dried cranberries and coconut that I found at the back of the cupboard.

What Crayons has been/is doing: Stringing a necklace of food-colouring-dyed navy beans. (From the Science Book for Girls.) Playing in the snow. Making a bridge out of building blocks to go with her geography lesson. Listening to Rikki-Tikki-Tavi. Learning about Roman numerals.

What the Apprentice is doing: Taking a voice lesson. Getting ready for end-of-semester exams.

What Ponytails is doing: I'll let her do her own post.
