Green Eggs and Ham

Monday March 2nd would have been Dr Seuss' 105th Birthday. I love Dr. Seuss. He has inspired so many children to read over the years. As my kids were growing up there were different Dr. Seuss activities in school. Several times the schools had green eggs and ham for lunch. What a neat thing for the kids to experience. Why not make some green eggs and ham for your kids next week?

Read the book, print out some coloring pages, do a word search have fun with the day and remember a fantastic author Dr Seuss!

Free Banana Bread, IHOP Pancakes and Tacos

Quite a combination huh? You can read the details for each of the items here

I've been trying to adapt the cooking for the family to what items I can readily find here in country. It has been a challenge at times but we are eating different things and are doing fine. We got some fish from the seafood market last week and that's always good for us as we love different seafood meals. I have a few more meal plans in the works, will post links to them in the next few days

Back to the Easy cooking days

Cheap, Easy Cooking. Gosh it is easy to stray away from something when you get busy. That has been the case for me. I strayed from my blogs while I was in the midst of a recent household move. Although I have not been blogging I have been scoping out things that are considered cheap easy cooking in my view. Now that I am in a different country shopping is different for me so I am having to adapt my ideas of what to have for dinner. I have to admit, the easy part isnt quite as easy but not having convenience foods has made it healthier. One thing that I would encourage anyone looking for increasing the ease of their meals to do, is invest in a rice cooker. We have had ours for about 10 years now and use it almost every day. Rice, even with the recent rise in costs, is still one of the main staples of cheap easy cooking. Watch the widget on the blog for meal plans as I continue to post them on Associated Content.
