One Flourishing, Frugal and Fun Family!

One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

Wear it out,
Make it do,
Or go without."

Kid's Cook Night!

My 12 year old made Spinach Cannelloni for us last night, using her trainer cooking game on her Nintendo. It was her second successful cooking experience. If you haven't seen the cooking trainer for Nintendo, it's really neat.

You can talk directly into your Nintendo and say "next" to go from step to step. There is even a timer at the end, and you can make a grocery list and take it with you shopping. It's a great way for kids to learn how to cook.

However, some of the recipes call for wine. You can either do that step for them, or eliminate it from the recipe. Either way, your kids can learn to be independent and gain confidence in themselves. It also gives Mom a break from daily cooking and baking.
