Touch the Art: Art Appreciation Boardbooks for Youngers

What's Schoolin'?

I was writing a post about art appreciation and came across this series. I didn't want it to get lost in the other post so here it is...

I cannot vouch for these but they have good reviews and the premise is very cool :)... Touch the Art books:

Okay, so this is not part of the series but the reviews are promising:

What's Cookin'?

If you happen to be making chili and find that you don't have enough beans and meat to fill 5 tummies... adding cooked rice helps to s-t-r-e-t-c-h out the meal.  I had to do that tonight but called it "faux chili" for dh's benefit so that he'll believe me next time I say we're having chili :).   I put one slice of preserved jalapeno in it for just a slight kick.  The venison I used in lieu of ground beef was so mild that it blended right in. We served it with cornbread from Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Cornbread Mix and, quite honestly, youngest dd and I thought it was too gritty/coarse. I found that and Bob's Red Mill Baking Powder at Big Lots today.


  1. We have one of those art board books and they are neat.

  2. Glad to know they are as good as they look! :)
