This weekend has gone by quickly. The older kids went skating yesterday and Eric took the littles to a church fair. They all had a really good time. I pulled a muscle in my shoulder carrying the giant baby around and decided to stay home and rest. I'm actually glad that I stayed home. The forest fires in Georgia are sooo bad that the smoke is filtering throughout the whole house. I thought I was catching a horrible cold last night so I stayed home from church only to realize it was the smoke playing with my allergies. I missed all the fun!lol Oh, well, Sophia and I are getting a lot of time to get to know each other. I can't say it's helping me to understand her any better but at least I get all the baby

I'm looking for some computer games for Evie. She's just about worn out all the ones she has. We haven't bought any new ones for her She's just been playing the ones that lasted from Allison and Jon. If you all know of any good ones, I'd love to hear of them.

I finally found a history curriculum that Well, that the kids like. It's got a little of something for all learning styles. We are going to start with Ancient Civ. I like that it has hands-on, auditory, visual, everything! Now we have all the main subjects for the year.

I'm also trying a new schedule from Large Family Logistics. I need to figure out how to get everything done in a week's time. I really hope this helps.

I guess that's it!

Here's the recipe for the sandwich loaf, this is from Tam's web-site...

Sandwich Loaf

It is made by using a favorite bread dough recipe. It's great with either white or wheat. You use about 1/2-loaf worth of dough, and spread it out to measure about 16" X 10" on a floured surface.

Melt 1/2 stick butter and mix with 1/4 cup parmesan cheese. Spread this mixture over the bread dough.

Down the center third "longways", layer desired lunch meats (i.e. ham or beef or turkey).

Over the lunch meat, sprinkle about 1 cup of grated cheese or lay slices of cheese.

From there, you can roll up the dough over the meat/cheese layers or cut the sides (outer 2/3s of the dough) and braid them over the meat and cheese.

Transfer the roll to a pan.

Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes, until golden brown.

Brush with butter.

Slice and serve warm.

It's great to have a plan!

But do remember, Lisa, that TamInAz has lots of grown up helpers around! {g} (I know her from the SL forums.)

Yum! I've never heard of a sandwich recipe like that. I definitely want to try that one. I use canned biscuits and put meat and cheese inside and fold over like a mini stromboli. I love the idea of making big ones for lunch using regular bread dough. Thanks!
