Animal crackers that is. Yesterday I made flax seed animal crackers. The recipe comes from “How It All Vegan”. They were delicious. The boys loved them. Arthur kept saying “I need another animal cookie”. They were seasoned with garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Adam kept signing “eat”. It is such a healthy snack too. I used my farm animal cookie cutters. It would have been easier cutting squares, but cookie cutters are so much more fun. As you can see, there is a barn, a cow, a pig and a sheep. Arthur loved eating and playing with them. I also made some mocha chip muffins from VWAV. I love these muffins. And I made some banana bread. I use the recipe from The PPK. It is simple and delicious. Why all the baking? In an effort to avoid doing laundry, I really dislike doing laundry. I wanted to at least do something productive, so I baked.
Next weekend I am going to volunteer at the Johnson’s Backyard Garden. I am very excited about this. I am going with Smurfette. She went last month. It should be fun. It is a family, locally owned organic garden. You volunteer a couple of hours and in exchange you get a big box of fresh organic veggies from the farm. I am also looking forward to learning more about vegetable gardening. We plan to have a huge Spring and Summer garden next year.
What are your plans for the weekend? We are staying indoors. Adam is better. I am keeping his activities low so he can be back to 100%. I think I will let Arthur help me in the garden. He loves the garden. Josh has to work too. I recently found a nice wooden wardrobe on the street a neighbor was getting rid of, so I hope to paint it.
Well I am off to have some breakfast. Hope you have a lovely weekend.
peas and love….
Krys and the boys
