I've been trying to do some math and reading with Miah and Larkin in the morning instead of trying to cram everything in when Zahana and Rohan are napping. It's nice getting things done before lunch, but what do you think Zahana and Rohan do during that time?
Get into some mischief, of course. When I caught them, Zahana immediately blamed Rohan.
"Rohan! Spoon. In it."
Sure, Zahana. Rohan got the chocolate out of the cupboard and the spoons out of the drawer all by himself. And put the chocolate all over you too, I'm sure.
The look on Rohan's face reminded me of another picture taken 5 years ago when Miah was just Rohan's age.
That's Miah, up on the table, getting into the butter. And getting caught. I love that picture.
Speaking of butter. Zahana made us some scrumptious strawberry butter. Want to make some too?
1 stick butter, softened
1/4 c. strawberry jam
1/8 c. fresh strawberries
Dump the butter into your mixing bowl.
Measure jam and add to bowl.
Beat until smooth.
Chop strawberries fairly small.
Stir everything together.
Spread on bread.
As for butter versus margarine, I trust cows more than chemists. ~Joan Gussow
