Hello everybody! I hope ya'll are having a great start to the week. I thought I would share this week's meal plan for anyone looking for kid-friendly meal ideas. The breakfast and lunches are geared more toward Sydney, the last school age child we have at home. She's a full blown teenager but she still loves her kid-friendly lunches. I usually eat yogurt and berries for lunch, or salad and some protein, or better yet, leftovers from dinner.
I'm going to go ahead and get breakfast ready, but Syd is going to help me make dinner this evening. She is having turkey bacon, a blueberry bagel with mixed berry cream cheese, along with a side of sliced bananas topped with chopped walnuts.
I'm going to do a similar version of Syd's breakfast only I'll add a pepper ring with one egg, and spread a little butter on the bagel instead of the cream cheese.
Today in science class we started a new chapter on waves and sound. We also got to watch three students give their science project presentations. "All Greased Out" was our favorite presentation because it was a project that involved experimenting and collecting data on french fries from Burger King, Steak & Shake, McDonald's and Wendy's. The results obtained from the experiment were interesting. As it turned out Steak & Shake served the greasiest fries.
Today in health class Miss Burns was teaching a chapter on personal hygiene. It was all about the skin, your protective covering, the largest organ of the body. The layers of the skin - epidermis - dermis - hypodermis. "Be good to your skin. You'll wear it every day for the rest of your life."
Syd volunteered to help me make chicken fajitas for dinner tonight. They are super quick and easy to make. As I was cutting the pepper into strips, I noticed that it looked like it was smiling at me. "Awe Bell No!"
There's my girl! She's throwing sass around like a spicy chili seasoning. :o) She's way more sweet than sassy though.
It's time to saute the onions and peppers.
We set up a little mini salad bar.

Great job Syd! It's delicious!
Happy Monday ya'll! Talk to ya soon!
Good evening everybody! Back to life, back to reality, back from a fantasy, back to the here and now (so the song goes).
I started back on a healthier diet today, meaning I can't be eating cookies at every meal, and that's a bummer. But alas I shall eat my egg whites and drown my tears in a bottle of water. But I'm still putting peanut butter on my banana slices... it'll be natural peanut butter and it will only be 2 teaspoonfuls... but I'll be happy, thank you. :o)
After breakfast it was back to school.
Let's see, where did we last leave off from our studies?
Smile Syd, it's not that bad! Come on girl it's going to be educational fun, hon!
Thankfully in Algebra class today it was a review of the previous concepts she was learning… polynomial addition and multiplication.
English and Science tests were on the schedule. No wonder she had to be coaxed into smiling. ;o)
We started a new chapter in World Geography - South America. In the next week or so we’ll be learning about:
It was a pleasant surprise to see Aaron in the home office / studio today. He's a busy guy these days.
He couldn't stick around long because he had to get back to work. He was printing off storyboard sheets for his next animation project.
The weather was sunny and somewhat warm so we were able to get out for a walk. I made a simple meatloaf, baked potato and steamed cauliflower for dinner.
It feels good to get back on track today. I think I'm going to get my jammies on early this evening and relax a bit before heading to bed. Talk to y'all tomorrow. Happy Monday!
Happy Monday y'all! Let's get this day started! On your mark, get set, GO!
