My Personal Reading Challenge: Books I've Read This Year

One of my New Year's resolutions was to read more books this year. I used to get through at least one a week, but was very slack last year.  So, in an effort to follow through, I thought I'd make myself accountable to you lovely lot!  Here's what I've read so far this year...

Our Unschooled Week #4

Oops, had a bit of a crazy week and completely ran out of time yesterday to get this post finished and live; plus it was Lara's birthday so we were too busy having fun.  Sorry!  I have absolutely no idea how she has got to 7, and my main question is, can we go back and do it all again?  Right now is great, but I do miss those wonderful baby and toddler years, and all three are growing SO fast!!  Another reason this weekly cataloguing of our comings and goings is worthwhile.  So, what have we been up to this week?

Recipe: Penne with the Ultimate Vegetable Sauce

Our girls have all inherited my Italian heritage, and would happily eat pasta most days of the week.  This chunky vegetable sauce is one of their favourites, but for fussier eaters you could blend the sauce down to make it smooth.  Make double (or more) quantities of the sauce at a time and pop portion size bags in the freezer, for when time is short or you need a good healthy comfort food boost.
