I was lucky enough to escort Kayleigh and 75 other kindergarteners on their first fieldtrip. A BIG thank you to my mom for spending a few days with us so I could go. Myself and another parent had a group of 7 boys and girls. We had a really great group.This is how it was the entire day... At a 10 (for the kids). Always moving. Always excited. Always happy.

Later in the day she was riding around the courtyard when suddenly the sprinklers came on. It was hysterical. I'm so glad Dave was there to help her out.
1 cup half-and-half, divided
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled goat cheese
1 cup 1% low-fat milk
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 garlic clove, minced
5 cups thinly sliced peeled potato
Preheat oven to 400°.
Combine 2 tablespoons half-and-half with flour in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add the remaining half-and-half, cheese, and next 5 ingredients (cheese through garlic), stirring with a whisk. Arrange half of the potato slices in a single layer in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Pour half of the milk mixture over potato slices, stirring the milk mixture immediately before adding. Repeat procedure with remaining potato slices and milk mixture. Bake at 400° for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender and golden brown.
Although tastey and "light," I have to say it was a waste of goat cheese. We love goat cheese and decided you couldn't really tell it was made with the goat. :(

Today, I came to the realization that I have been neglecting to post photos of the foods I have been making. I like having a visual history for myself. I've made some yummy things lately too. Drinks, roasted butternut squash and apple soup, pasta dishes, fish dishes, and desserts. I have an eggplant dish on the menu this week, I'll have to rememeber to take a picture.
I don't think I wrote this down, but Kayleigh's teacher told her where meat comes from. We have been keeping it from her because we knew what would happen.... But now she is okay with the fact that we will just eat less meat. Which is fine with me. That kids just loves animals so much it's crazy.

And in case you were wondering what K is doing in the above picture, she is giving her sister a tattoo. When she was done she even covered it in plastic. LOL!
