My family is not one to travel at this time of year as it is always a busy time at work for my husband. That means it is me and the kids with 5 days of unscheduled time. While I love to just hang out with my kids, the truth is, five days is pretty long if you don't go into it with a plan. We always try to have a few playdates but many of our friends head south for the week (and who can blame them after this winter).
This year I'm planning ahead. Hopefully the weather will work with me and we can get a lot of skating, sledding and snowman building in. The outdoor time and fresh-air always put everyone in a good mood. BUT my big plan is to have a March Break Cooking Bonanza at our house.
The plan is for the kids and I to find fun recipes to try out everyday and work together to make new and creative dinners. My son (a Dr. Seuss devotee) has already put forth "Green Eggs & Ham" as one meal. I'll let you know how that goes. I think I'll probably invest in this cookbook as it looks to have lots of fun ideas that the kdis will enjoy.
So, wish me luck on our cooking escapades. I'll keep you posted on our culinary delights.
