Free books

Don't you just love free stuff? My father has given us a nook and we have been using it for school. There are so many great books in the public domain for all ages! Many of them are harder to read but once you get used to it, no big deal. Everybody just trades off when it's their time to read. I have REALLY enjoyed it! No hunting down books, I take them all everywhere. I love the games as well. We are eying the new colored one as well. Eventually we will get all the oldest a nook but that will take some time, and prices need to come down! :) I figure the money we are saving on having to buy books, we can put into getting another nook. Yay! Thanks Dad!!

I am so excited about finding a wasabi powder without yucky dyes in it! We went to Earth Fare and there it was. I made the paste yesterday at lunch to try it out and it was so good. I decided to water it down a little and pour it over my salad(I used Nutritional Yeast for the "dressing"). It was so yummy. My new fave addition.

Dehydrated Broccoli and Cauliflower

Nama Shoyu
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Put a bunch of broccoli or cauliflower on a teflex sheet, sprinkle Nama Shoyu on it. Dust it with onion and garlic powder. Dehydrate for as long as it takes to get it like you want it. If you want it with a meal as a side, I suggest start it early in the day and watch it. It should be wilted and warm by dinner. The longer you leave it in there, the crunchier it gets. You can then eat it as a snack, which I love!

Recording Results

Well, I was able to record some music from the piano, mix it, and the girls and I sang with it in church. They did a great job. We just did a short hymn. I am wanting to get them used to singing so I didn't want to overwhelm them. I can't wait until we can sing in parts! That would be so neat. I have really enjoyed playing around with it and the software. Too bad I will be gone all this week, won't be able to practice. On the upside, my Dad and Mom(step) is moving back this way after being gone for 8-9 years. I am so excited!! I will update with some pics as soon as I get them. I did want to post some recent pics of the kids.
