Broccoli Cheese Soup

Broccoli Cheese soup is a winter staple at our house. On those chill-you-to-the-bone cold days, I make broccoli cheese soup.

Eat your heart out Panera.

Homemade Broccoli Cheese Soup; easy and delicious!

Homemade Broccoli Cheese Soup

Ingredients:

  • One small onion chopped finely
  • One stick of butter
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 2 cups Milk (can substitute with heavy creamy)
  • 2- 32 oz cartons of Chicken Stock (or Homemade Chicken Stock if you have it)
  • 2 Bags of Frozen Broccoli or Fresh Broccoli chopped
  • 1/2 to 1 pound of Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Directions:

On medium heat, saute chopped onion in 1 stick of butter until onion is clear.

Add 1/2 cup flour and whisk continuously for about 2 minutes until golden brown.

Slowly add 2 cups of milk and whisk well. Once the lumps are dissolved in the milk, add 2 containers of chicken stock. Simmer about 20 minutes.

Add 2 bags of frozen broccoli or fresh chopped broccoli if you prefer. Simmer up to 20 minutes or until broccoli is soft.

If you need to thicken your soup, add a tablespoon of cornstarch and water in a bowl. Mix well and add it to the soup mixture. Boil for 1 minute.

Add 1/2 to 1 pound of shredded cheese, stirring until melted.

Pirate Birthday Party: Treasure Chest Cake

Treasure Chest Cake

I can’t claim this idea from Family Fun, but I can point you to the video tutorial!

A few thoughts: Making this cake was slightly frustrating….but then again, it could’ve just been me. My cake was a little too crumbly and caused me issues when I tried to frost it. Possibly humidity and summer heat?  Putting the cake in the freezer for a little while probably would have helped….but it was too late by the time I realized this, so I marched on through. The top kept sliding off the back and didn’t have the open treasure chest look I was going for (and the original picture showed). But, in the spirit of making things work, I just kept adding gold coins until it looked better. In the end, the birthday boy was happy and that’s the only thing that matters!

Pirate Birthday Party: “Shark-Infested Water” Jello Treats

What’s a Pirate Birthday Party without a little danger & suspense? How about some “Shark-infested Waters” on the high seas?!

Shark-Infested Water Jello Treat

The “Shark-Infested Water” Jello Treats are super easy to make! This was one of Jonah’s favorite parts of his party…probably because he helped make them!

You will need:

  • Blue Jello (This treat takes two steps, so you’ll need atleast 2 packages depending on your desired servings.)
  • Gummy Sharks (I actually found these at the Dollar Tree in the candy section)
  • Clear cups (I used Chinet Cut Crystal 9 oz. cups)

Directions:

  1. Make blue jello according to the package. I used the “quick-set” method since I wanted the first layer of the jello to finish quickly.
  2. Pour jello into clear cups halfway to your desired serving size. Place in the refrigerator and wait until the jello layer is “set”.Blue Jello
  3. Once the first layer of the jello is set, place Gummy Sharks on top. Shark-Infested Water Jello Treat
  4. Prepare second layer of blue jello according to the package. Pour on top of the gummy sharks and first layer of jello. (I guess this part could be optional, but I wanted the sharks to be in the jello. You’ll also notice, I forgot to take a picture of the final outcome. Sorry!)
  5. Refrigerate overnight or until jello is “set”.
  6. Serve to the pirates!

A few tips:

  • A few of my gummy sharks kept wanting to flip over on their backs and float. To fix this, I let the jello start to set halfway and start to get thick. Then, I flipped them  over to their belly. This seemed to do the trick and they finally stayed put.
  • Another thing to try to avoid the gummy sharks from moving too much is place the gummy sharks on top of the first layer of jello before it is completely set and hardened. This might have worked better than my method mentioned above, but I didn’t think about it until after it was too late to fix.

Bake Me A Memory…

To me, Christmas just isn’t complete without doing my traditional baking and candy making. It started way back when I was a little girl. Our small kitchen would be full of melted chocolate, laughter, and my sister belting out Christmas tunes. It was glorious! (Ok, maybe not the incessant singing…but for nostalgia’s sake we’ll go with it :) )

Now as a mother, I still continue the tradition. The key to baking with a 3-year-old is to have something they can do independently. Whether it is spraying non-stick cooking spray on a cookie sheet or handing you ingredients—they NEED a job.

Is is stressful? At times.

Does it take longer? Yes.

Do they love to help? Absolutely!

After finishing all of my Christmas orders and taking them to the post office, I was ready to get down to making memories with Jonah. We made some of our favorites and a few new things based on the ingredients stockpiled in my cabinets from my coupon adventures.

What? Doesn't everyone bake in their Mickey Mouse Ears?

Jonah helped me spread peanut butter on Saltine crackers. I gave him a small spreader from one of my entertaining pieces and a small bowl with a scoop of peanut butter. I also gave him a separate plate for his finished crackers….because he’s not the most sanitary chef. He kept licking his fingers, the bowl, and even the spreader.

After we finished spreading the peanut butter on our Saltine crackers, I dipped them in melted White Chocolate. I placed them on some wax paper and a cookie sheet to cool in the refrigerator. Once the chocolate is hardened and “set”, we packaged some of the goodies up and took them to our neighbors.

Now I know what your thinking…….Peanut Butter crackers dipped in chocolate? Oh, it is sooooo good! Trust me.

**I wish I had a picture of the final project for you, but the lighting has been terrible in my kitchen the past few gloomy days. Luckily, I think you’re pretty smart and can figure it out—just picture a white square :)

Homemade Playdough Recipe & Printable

playdough pile

 This is my favorite Homemade Playdough Recipe to go with the Preschool Playdough Mats & Activities shared earlier this week. Unlike some store-bought brands, it is smooth and stays moist for a long time if stored properly! Plus, you probably already have most of the ingredients in your kitchen cabinets. Enjoy!

Homemade Playdough

  • 2 cups Flour
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 Cup Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Cream of Tartar (found in the spices section)
  • 1/4 teaspoons Food Coloring

Heat about 3 minutes on High. Stir continuously. After it gets thick and forms into a ball, pour onto some wax paper. Let the dough cool slightly. Knead until smooth. Store in a plastic bag, inside an air-tight container.

*If you want to add a little sparkle to playdough time, add a little glitter during the cooking process–Instant “Princess Playdough”

And because I love you…

Preschool Playdough Mats & Activities

Playdough is so much more than just squishy-gooey fun for little fingers. Playing with playdough is beneficial to developing and strengthening fine motor skills. Essentially, playing with playdough can directly impact your little one’s writing skills! (I know, I know, it can be messy. With a few guidelines, you can let your little one squish playdough to their heart’s content.)

Playdough Guidelines At Our House:

  1. Always at the table!
  2. Use a placemat
  3. If you purposefully throw it on the floor, we put your playdough away.

I have found that little ones don’t really have the dexterity to sculpt playdough into complex shapes and can get frustrated. One of the things they can do really well though is make “snakes” and roll a “ball”. Using these two things, we can harness the educational power of playdough through playdough mats!

ABC Playdough Mats

Playdough Mat Ideas:

  • Letter Outlines (Here’s a great printable from Homeschool Creations!)
  • Number Outlines (Another printable from Homeschool Creations)
  • Shape Outlines
  • Child’s Name
  • Counting Sets
  • Simple addition or subtraction facts (also known as “Number Sentences” in Kindergarten)
  • Spelling Words

Cutting Playdough with a Plastic Knife

Other Playdough Activities We Like:

  • Cookie Cutters of all kinds
  • Practicing cutting with a plastic knife
  • Practicing cutting with child-safe scissors (with lots of supervision!)

Here is a little trick to help extend the life of  your Playdough Mats: Slide the playdough mat into a plastic page protector. This will prevent the playdough from sticking to your playdough mat paper and will make it easy to wipe clean. Also, did you know that you can write on page protectors with a dry-erase marker and wipe it clean? Aha! Now our playdough mats are multi-purpose!

Playdough Mat Resources:

That should be a great starting point for you with making playdough time a powerful learning tool!
