All the recipes are egg free! Another plus for making great treats with Kathleen. :-) I'll be posting the recipe below as well. This is just so you get an idea of how the book is structured.
Here we are starting with all the necessary ingredients.
Putting everything together.....
Elvis sitting at the table and watching our every move! LOL
Yeah, a recipe where she finally gets to lick the spoon!
I think she's enjoying it? LOL
So here is the recipe:
Yummy for my Tummy Fudgey!
Put the following in an 8 cup bowl and stir with spoon:
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup evaporated milk
Microwave for 1 minute on high, stir with spoon, microwave 30 more seconds on high, stir with spoon
Add the following to the 8 cup bowl and stir until MELTED!
1/2 cup mini marshmallows
1/4 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cups chocolate chips
1/4 cup walnuts (optional....we left these out)
Place wax paper in the bottom of a square pan. Pour mixture on top. Put a little butter on your fingertips and spread fudge to the edges of the pan. Let sit in fridge for at least an hour. Enjoy!!!
It recommends adding icing and sprinkles, but it was so sweet just by itself, it really didn't need any extras.
So since it was so beautiful out, we took a nature walk around our development. I wanted to have her make necklaces out of her findings. So I traced a small bowl for the circle shape. Then cut them out and used a hole puncher to make a hole.
Then we set out with our brown lunch bag.....
Let the exploring begin!
We took time to observe the butterfly on the dandelion...
Taking time to visit with a caterpillar, and then putting him safely in the grass.
Taking a rest by our neighbor's beautiful fountain and being sure to say hi to the fish!
Back to our doorstep with wonderful finds!
We were so blessed to find so many goodies!!
She was so excited doing this craft, we got the idea that after it dries, we'll do a necklace and a banner of Fall beauty. :-)
Oh and Elvis did change chairs and make sure we were doing everything correctly! LOL He loves being with us.
Then I had to get down to business and prepare dinner. One of the ingredients for tonight is onions.
Don't laugh, when I was watching an episode of Paula Dean, she had on there about using safety classes to protect your eyes from the onions. My eyes are so sensitive. I knew I was giving it a try! It does work, and I used gloves to hold the onion. And Viola!...
Successfully cut and diced onions ready for dinner tonight!
So I must share this yummy recipe too. I was super happy to walk outside and pick my own tomatoes and peppers for this meal.

Here is a little song for Fall I taught Kathleen to sing. Now it's stuck in both our heads! LOL
Apple Man Song ( Sung to tune of muffin man)
Oh do you know the apple man
The apple man, the apple man
Oh do you know the apple man
who likes to play with me?
Oh he has a great big smile, A great big smile, a great big smile
Oh he has a great big smile
And likes to play with me!
Have more to do today and lots of schoolwork.
Have a great day!
