Oh I'm a MoM! Thank you!
It was a rough go - I finally figured out the best stranding method by the last few rows of the last sheep lol.

Some more homework from me.
Class: Detention (June)
Name: In-law Pasta
So this is a pasta my MIL makes all the time that I love. The recipe below is more of a formula, but I promise it's delicious!
1 each zucchini, mushrooms, onion, bell pepper chopped roughly (you can add in or substitute veggies you like)
At least 2 cups spinach or kale
1/2 - 3/4 c. Dry white wine
1/2 c. chicken broth
3 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
up to 1/4 c. Parmesan
1/2 - 1 c. crumbled Feta
Stir fry the veggies and garlic in olive oil and butter until slightly softened, then add wine and chicken broth and the greens and put the lid on for a few minutes to steam it down. Take the lid off to reduce the liquid some (3-5 minutes at least), then put it in a bowl and toss it with cheese. Serve over your favourite pasta!
Name: LEMON alfredo sauce!
This contains an unexpected ingredient - lemon zest! I learned the trick from Giada DiLaurentis a long time ago. Just make a standard alfredo sauce (you could try this one: http://www.copykat.com/2014/09/23/creamy-alfredo-sauce/
) but add the zest from one lemon. It brightens up the sauce and lifts the richness slightly. I put it on top of this very fun GF farfalle from the Italian Centre shop.
Name: Sun fun!
We've had some hoooooot and sunny days here so I planned some things to make good use of it! We made oobleck with water, cornstarch, baking soda, and food colouring to play in our fingers, then walk out onto the hot and sunny driveway to leave bright footprints. We added vinegar to make them foam! Then we made frozen sidewalk chalk with the same ingredients but MUCH less water, then put them in the hot sunny driveway to melt and make neat patterns and puddles. Vinegar made these melt and spread in beautiful pictures too.
Challenge: Quidditch Half-time
Yet another way to beat the heat, this sprinkler is definitely refreshing. We made one last year with a different pool noodle but it wasn't reuseable since we taped it onto the hose. This time I went out and bought a hose coupler, then used MUCH duct tape to get it firmly into the pool noodle. I taped off the other end, and drilled some holes at random into the top half (width wise) of the noodle. Ghetto sprinkler for $6! Not including duct tape costs.
