No-Wheat Spaghetti!

I'm going to show you how to make spaghetti with no wheat at all!  I'm going to use the Spaghettable, which is a fancy-fun word for "giant pencil sharpener for vegetables."

One zucchini squash.  Do you see the pointy piece of squash toward the back of the plate?  That's what's left after using the Spaghettable. I just cut up that and popped it in with the rest of the food. 

Medium high heat.  A few tablespoons of garlic-flavoured olive oil.  I added some pieces of garlic, but maybe you like onions or mushrooms with your veggie spaghetti?

I then added some jarred (high fructose corn syrup free, thank you!) pasta sauce and heated that up a bit.  Are you feeling brave?  Want to try it?

  1. It looks delicious, I might try it; what sort of machine is that to cut the zucchini with? I could use a knife I suppose.
    I thought you were going to talk about rice spaghetti, which we have here in the shops, made from rice for those who can't eat wheat.

    1. It's called a "Spaghettable," not sure if they are available in Aus, makes noodle-like veggies. There are other spiralizers out there if not, however. Hope you get 'round to trying it; let me know if you do and what you think!

  2. It looks good! I'm avoiding pasta, bread and rice right now, but I just go without the pasta in my spaghetti Bolognese.

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…
