Egg-Tastic Egg Cooker!

Woodjie can crack eggs!  Just not always neatly.
Woodjie is going to demonstrate the Egg-Tastic Egg Cooker for you today!  Because he wanted a cheese and egg sandwich.  Woodjie discovered he loves egg sandwiches after I began eating more eggs on my low-carb diet and I bought this thing on a whim.

Here's how he fixed his eggs:  he cracked eggs into the cooker.  We use two eggs and scramble them with a fork.  Next?  Plunk a slice of cheese into the egg (break it into pieces first).  Put the lid on and microwave according to Egg-Tastic instructions.  For two eggs in our microwave, it meant a minute and 20 seconds of waiting. 
Adding cheese.

The only thing I wish were different about the Egg-Tastic is that it has no handles (it gets HOT in the microwave) and that the lid and bottom come apart in pieces, meaning there are more items to clean.  On the whole, though?  Highly recommended, especially if you are doing low-carb.

PS.  Tell Woodjie "happy birthday" in the comments, will you?  He's nine this weekend.  :)

Yummers!  We are using paper plates because my dishwasher is broken.  The new one should arrive in a couple of weeks or so.

  1. Happy Birthday Woodjie!!
    What type of cheese is that? I've never seen two-toned cheese that isn't cheese-and-mould.
    Why not just wash up the old fashioned way - in the sink? Woodjie and Rose might think it's a fun, novel idea and help you. Make it a history lesson, "this is how people cleaned their dishes before dishwashers were invented.'

    1. River: it's Colby-Jack cheese. Good observation: it's supposed to be two-toned. :) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colby-Jack

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…

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…

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!
