Stuffed Mushrooms ~ A New Favorite Holiday Side Dish

While at my mom's one evening babysitting my niece, I was flipping through her Midwest Living magazine and came upon a recipe for stuffed mushrooms. Rick loves stuffed mushrooms so I confiscated the magazine and planned to make them for our Thanksgiving meal. I knew it called for mushrooms and sausage, and that was all I could remember.

The day before Thanksgiving I went to the grocery store to pick up the final fixins' for dinner and couldn't find that magazine anywhere! And I wanted to make that recipe so bad! So, I went where us women always go when we want a good recipe … I went to the Pioneer Woman. And, she did not disappoint!

I made her amazing stuffed mushrooms and my gang gobbled them up! (no pun intended)

The only changes I made to the recipe were using chicken broth instead of white wine and using Kraft grated parmesan cheese (straight from the plastic container) instead of fresh grated (because I didn't have any). I also used Italian Sausage. They still turned out fabulous!!

Cells ~ It's What's for Dinner

Dawson made edible cells on Friday.

He made an animal cell pizza ...

and a plant cell chocolate chip cookie ...

He reviewed what he's learned about cells the past two weeks, and I had dinner made by someone else. Win, win!!

I am linking up at Science Sunday at Adventures in Mommydom.

Ketogenic + Restless Legs = Insomnia ... Um, No!

Okay, I have been eating ketogenic for five days now. I have gotten through the carb detox headaches and have settled into a macro plan of 5% carbs (no grains), 20% protein, 75% fat.

The upside is that I like the idea of limiting my body of all of the glucose which will help my minor health conditions.

But there are definitely downsides!

The first is that I am having a hard time getting in enough fats under the strictures of the diet. Who knew it would be hard to eat fats? The real problem is that the fats I want to eat then include a consumption of protein and/or carbs and then throws off my percentages. Still working on that one.

The bigger issue is that for the past couple of nights I have had trouble sleeping, and I have had restless legs.

Sleeping is one of those things that I do well. I go to bed at the same time every night (for the most part) and get up at the same time each morning. I can fit in a 15-30 minute power nap in the afternoon and have no trouble going to sleep at n…

America: The Story of Us ~ Episode 3: "Westward 1" Lesson Plans

This past summer, when I planned our lessons for this year, I was enthralled with how much information was in Episode 3 ~ Westward. It couldn't be done in just three weeks, as I had intended for each unit. So, I broke Westward up into two separate units: Westward 1 and Westward 2. This week I will provide the lesson plans for Westward 1. We spent three weeks on this part of the unit.

We readThe Captain's Dog by Roland Smith. We read an equal number of pages each day to cover the three-week unit (Suprisingly, Dawson did not enjoy this book as much as I thought he would. With him being such a dog-lover, I thought he would appreciate it more. But it just didn't have enough action for him. You'll find that he's hard to please when it comes to literature. I actually really enjoyed The Captain's Dog and thought it was a great piece of historical fiction.)

We watched the entire Episode 3, did the discussion questions/video quiz for the episode and the vocabulary words…
