Taking the opportunity to teach your children to cook is a skill that will be with them forever.
It doesn't have to be a 9 course meal, just let them work with you to create a dinner or dessert they can be proud of!
A fun recipe to start with is PIZZA! Everyone loves pizza and making one just the way YOU like it is even better. Grab some toppings that your family will like, some cheese, spaghetti sauce, and Rhodes Rolls. Thaw the rolls ahead of time so they will be easy to shape. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown. We like a crispier crust, so we bake the crust before we add the toppings but it works either way. Add the toppings and bake until the cheese is bubbly. Wah Lal!
This Family History Family Home Evening Lesson is all about GOALS!
Remember: A Goal is just a Thought unless it's Written Down.
Each year we add our new goals to our Family History Journal. It's fun to see what was really important to us each year. When our kids were little, some of their goals were to sleep in their big boy beds all night, or to pick up their toys every day. Now that they are getting older, their goals are more thought out and a little bit more challenging. Keeping a record of our goals has helped us to keep our "eyes on the prize!" Our goals are no longer just a passing thought, they are stepping stones helping us to be the best we can be!
We have included the Goal Pages in color or black and white, as well as a FHE Lesson on Goals!
Family History FHE Lesson - Goals PDF Running short on time . . . You can still have a FHE Lesson that will make them think! We've included a quick Object Lesson as part of the Family History FHE Lesson - Goals PDF. Just grab an egg, a glass, some water and some salt and you're ready!
Family Home Evening doesn't have to take hours . . . Just get the message to stick, and you're there!
To keep goals in view, make them into a placemat.
This can be printed in any of the colors used in the goal sheets above (all with a brown background).
They are 12x18 in size and are on file at Alphagraphics in Bountiful.
(Names can be written by each person in the space shown)
Use a Sharpie Marker to list goals and to mark progress!
We also included homemade pasta recipes for you to try, although purchased pasta will last up to 30 years if you put it in #10 cans with an oxy pack.
The Dry Pack Cannery offers 2 types of pasta:
Macaroni and Spaghetti.
If you check the canner out, you have the option of canning whatever kind of pasta you would like to use. It's easy to do an doesn't take very long. Watch the sales and buy quite a few packages. When you have a box full, check out the canner and go to work!
To make your canning day even better . . .
Call your sisters, or your friends and you can be little pioneers together!
It's amazing how productive you will feel at the end of the day!
Google Group no longer stores the pdf files and so the links from 2010 will no longer work if you try to access them from the post... BUT NO WORRIES! You can still have access to ALL the PDF files on the blog!
Just go to the 2010 Foldersshown above. From there you can do an individual search in each of the folders to find what you're looking for. Folders 1-3 are for the first to middle part of 2010 and folders 3-5 are for the middle to end of the year. I would love to go back and change all of the links, but it would take FOREVER and I would rather spend that time working on new graphics and ideas to share with YOU!
