Sebastian, Isa and Daniel Shaver at the Tulsa Aquarium for Sebastian’s birthday. They touched starfish, saw jellyfish and sharks.
We’ve been eating sprouted bread for almost five years now and have seen the price increase from 2.99 to 4.99 and with our family also doubling in size it started to take a pretty chunk from our grocery budget. I had looked into making sprouted bread for a while, but it seemed too complicated, or required equipment I didn’t have until I came across these instructions. It’s a three day process but it’s worth it since we’re now paying a little over a dollar per loaf for the ingredients, awesome!
Ingredients are 3 cups of hard red wheat berries, salt, yeast, and honey, that’s it!

Epcot at the future side where those water jumpin’ things are. Sebastian was more interested in the people playing around. Isabella was getting a kick out of everything.

Maggie may disagree, but I’m really leaning toward these two…
perhaps best told through images.

I’ve been trying to stay consistent in planning meals for the weeks since Isabella was born. It’s not an easy thing for me for some reason, but without it I end up spending more time at the grocery store than my two year old would like to.
