Well Christmas came and went and my family survived! With three kids under three it was questionable a few times. We only had our tree up for less than a week. witht he holiday I took a break from the food prepping. Well maybe just a little bit. With the idea of preparing food without every modern convience I am looking at old fashioned cooking. Since I am pretty aware of pioneer cooking thanks to 'Little House on the Prairie" I am looking into old fashioned British cooking or even just British cooking. So in the middle of the night doing those long 3am breasfeeding sessions I am watching old episodes of "Oliver's Twist" Any way I tried an old fashioned boiled pudding called Spotted Dick. The recipe was in metric so it was fun to translate.
Any back to the quest to get my kids to eat oatmeal. Today I am eiteher the best mom in the world or the worse. I made no bake oatmeal cookies and believe it or not my kids ate them up... maybe it was the two cups of sugar? or maybe the chocolate? who cares!!!!!!!?
