Chicken Manicotti: Kidz In The Kitchen

This recipe has me drooling just looking at the pictures and remembering the meal!  I love this one and so do my kids.  I confess that they don’t usually help me make this dish except for the part where they get to drop stuff into the food processor – under very very close supervision.  This is a time-consuming recipe but it makes a lot and it is well worth the work!  It is also a great leftover for lunch and freezes well.  I got this recipe from my favourite cookbook: Crazy Plates.  I have yet to cook something from this cookbook that I don’t love.

Six-Million Dollar Manicotti

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 cup finely chopped onions

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces

French Toast: Kidz in the Kitchen

Petit Déjeuner?

We love carbohydrate-loaded breakfasts in my house.  French Toast is a big hit, but it is a rare treat.  I just happened to think “Oh, I should make French Toast” while I was in the grocery store, one day, at the same time as I walked past the French Bread. That’s so rare.  My brain was firing on all cylinders, that day!

So… we snacked on some thick, white, store-bought French bread (a rare thing in my house) at dinner and kept some for the next morning.

Milk (1 cup), eggs (5), and a little vanilla (1 tsp) and nutmeg (1/4 tsp).

Mixed together by my 2 year-old…

Fitting in Fitness in Kamloops: “Don’t knock it ’till you try it”

Miranda Brown is a homeschooling Mama of six beautiful children.

“My running journey started when my 5th baby was 5 months old. I decide I would try something new. I saw an ad in Kamloops Daily News for “Run Club” to start training for the annual Boogie the Bridge. So I quickly signed up while I had myself convinced it was a good idea. I did 2 sessions with Kamloops Run Club and then found out I was expecting baby number 6. I hadn’t loved running at that point at all.
