- I am a very lucky woman with a husband and son who are smart, witty and entertaining. Our son, B, attended public school for two years, and then we embarked on a new adventure in the Fall of 2010 - homeschooling. We don't have all the answers, but we know B and this has been the best thing for him. I blog to preserve our stories and our memories, share recipes, vent and ramble on about our crazy, yet blessed, life. Would you care to follow along?

Breakfast Cooking Lesson for B
B gets up before me and makes himself a bowl of cereal in the morning. Then when I get up, he's ready for some protein to give him go power. I wasn't making a big breakfast for myself today, I only had a hard boiled egg, but B still wanted a big breakfast. So, I decided it was time he expanded his breakfast repertoire.
I decided cooking one item in a pan was enough, so I had him do the turkey bacon in the microwave. He got a paper plate, lined it with towels, added 3 pieces of bacon and covered with more towels. He read the directions on the bacon packaging - 1 to 1.5 minutes for 2 slices and 1.5 to 2 minutes for 4 slices - and he decided 1.5 minutes wold be good for his 3 slices. He was right because the bacon turned out exactly how he liked it and he was happy.
While the bacon was cooking, B got out the toaster and sat a slice of Wegmans Honey Apple Oat Bread (delicious!) in it but did not start toasting. He cracked an egg into a bowl, added 1 tsp of water, a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper and beat that all together. He broke half a slice of American cheese up into small pieces, turned the heat on under our wok and added a little pat of butter.
My boy scrambled those eggs like a champ, turned the heat off before they were done cooking because we like our eggs a little wet, and mixed in his cheese bits. He pushed the toast down to brown and then plated the bacon and eggs. I buttered his toast because we didn't have any softened this morning, but he has been buttering and jellying his toast for a few years already.
He said this morning's breakfast was "..the best EVER!" because he made it himself.
