Peek At Our Week 16

       This week in Fox was suppose to be making an orange sponge cake. This week we realized it is very important that you read the entire recipe and watch what you are doing... It started off a bit rough when we realized we needed a special pan called a tube pan. We didn't have one and no way to go get one right then and there. We researched online and people stated they had used a loaf pan and it turned out fine. Great!! We had two of those so perfect! It would all work out, right...??? 

        I have taught Fox over and over how to separate the egg yolks from the egg whites and no matter what if I do not stand over him I catch him using his hand!! GRRRRRRR. Gross!!! I am in no way a chef but an actual chef did teach me how to do that so it gets frustrating when my child won't listen! I guess he will go his own way like everyone else though and hopefully do better in time!!

Peek At Our Week 14

         This girl is already on her second grammar book for the year!!! She adores her Thinking Tree books! What a way to start the new year, in new jammies and with a new book. 

Fox is still moving right along in Guest Hollow Chemistry in the Kitchen. This week he made cheesecake. This is my all time favorite cake of course. His did get a bit brown but it still tasted delicious.
