I love when these sweet little learning moments happen during our day and I decided that Social Studies can wait until tomorrow, as we enjoy our impromptu Science lesson today.

Step One - Prepare the Bisquick substitute
Makes about one cup.
1 cup flour - I use mostly rice flour, with about 1 tbsp. potato flour (you could also use regular wheat flour if you don't need it to be gluten-free)
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. shortening
Mix the dry ingredients. Cut in the shortening.
Step Two - Prepare the Quiche
(adapted from this Bisquick Quiche recipe on Cooks.com)
1-2 cup fillings of your choice (example broccoli, mushrooms, spinach, etc.)
1 cup shredded cheese
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 cups milk
All of the Bisquick mix from the step above
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Grease 10" pie plate or 8" square.
3. Sprinkle fillings, onions and cheese in plate.
4. Beat remaining ingredients until smooth and pour into plate.
5. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until a knife inserted halfway between edge and center comes out clean.
6. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
I didn't have many extra ingredients on hand, so I prepared a simple cheese quiche using some yummy sharp provolone and colby jack cheeses. We also happened to have some green onions growing in the garden, so I diced them up and added them in. The kids and I ate up most of the quiche pie in one sitting. :)

There are some adorable backpacks available right now for $5 at Hollar! Search for "backpack." Just make sure to check for full size (15" or taller) as some are mini-backpacks. I've ordered these myself for my kids and they're very nice quality, but don't stay in stock long!

Summer has been busy, but also fun. I've enjoyed the break from home schooling, which is quickly coming to an end. We'll start back up on August 1st. Here's some random glimpses into our summer, so far!
|Birthday date night a week ago with my handsome hubby.|
|We went to the carnival in June!|
|We were the first on the ferris wheel, had it all to ourselves on opening night!|
|I've been getting our "classroom" set up for the new school year!|
|David had his fourth birthday on the fourth of July! He got his dream present from both grandparents and us.|
|Our flower garden is blooming! The kids and I started these from seeds back in April.|
|My youngest, Joel, and I made a trip to New York to see family and friends in June.|
|Joel with his great grandma!|
|We've enjoyed discovering some really nice parks this summer!|
