Weekly Wrap up: Pinterest Meme Party

In my life this week…

The big game in the Canadian Football league was on Sunday. We didn’t care about either of the teams but we still wanted to do our usual football snacks. So we invited over some friends and had all our normal snacks.

Super Bowl Sunday Snacks

Our original plan was to pull out some of our board games and play those however we ended up sharing pinterest jokes and memes. At one point we had four electronic devices circling the table. It was the most fun I’ve had in ages and the laughter was truly contagious.

I’m Cleaning…

I am continuing in the storeroom. This week I mostly boxed up my purge pile and brought in upstairs to be cleared by my wife. I also went through the cans of paint from the previous home owner. Two were rusting and ready to leak so they are gone. The most of the rest should probably go but I need to check with my wife before hauling them out. I am pretty sure we will not repaint with these colors and any need to touch up can probably wait until we do repaint.

In our homeschool this week…

Philip is up to two pages of notes for his work on the pyramids. Diving into Wikipedia like he does resulted in him reading about a lot of different pyramids in different parts of the world including some modern ones.

Margaret has been working on the physical regions of Canada. She colored in a map of the regions that unfortunately got recycled before I got a picture of it. She is going to do it again since she likes that sort of thing. She also discovered the fun of simplified resources. The two resources she found online disagreed. When we looked at it the first resource had merged two regions together that really are separate. The first resource was for grade 5 students while the second was a government website.

We are Reading…

Philip is now reading “What if”.

Margaret started and finished “Dear Canada: A Trail of Broken Dreams” which is a story based on the gold rush.

I am currently reading “Earth Awakens” by Orson Scott Card. If you are a fan of “Ender’s Game” these tell the story of the first Formic war.

I’m Cooking…

I made two new recipes this week. The first was for our ‘Not’ Grey Cup Party and was Mini Banana Cream Cookie pies. These were a lot of work but fun and tasty in the end. I used my own sugar cookie recipe and that may have caused me problems. I had trouble getting them to form without sticking to my shot glass. It took a fine touch to shape them without forcing the dough through the cracks on the outside of the cookie. Also I need a second mini muffin tin to be able to cycle them. I also made both vanilla and chocolate pudding to go with them.

The second was Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole. This one worked exactly the way the pin showed, came out looking the same and tasted absolutely great. We were rushing the first night to get kids to activities but I took pictures the second night. It reheats well.

  1. It’s always warm and fuzzy when family and friends have so much fun laughing and joking around with each other! It’s also funny how our devices have changed the way we live! Your party foods look yummy as well as the mini pies and chicken dish. Our daughters came home from a party with left over bean dip and artichoke dip. Both delicious!

  2. That sounds like such a fun time. Sometimes the best evenings are unplanned or don’t gonas planned. The food all looks lovely. I pinned the chicken dish to see if we can modify it for Amber. It sounds like you are progressing well with the decluttering. I need to do more of that but I’m out of time these days. Have a great week.

  3. Yum yum!!! The kids seem to be moving into some interesting topics this week. I love pyrimids and my kids and I did a video study on them just to keep things interesting since they don’t prefer to read history topics unless I’m sitting there with them.
