Paleo Mom Secret Weapon

What's for dinner? Meat. Meat. Meat. Every day meat. 

A paleo mom needs to be creative when meal planning, especially when catering to one, or two, or three picky eaters. I have one large child who won't eat certain vegetables (because his mom let him get away with it when he was young) and I have one little gremlin who will only eat ground beef, my princess is pretty easy going though.

My secret weapon is: a meat baller.  Some people might call them cookie ballers, but for a paleo mom it is for meat. I prepare several pounds of ground beef at a time, spend a few minutes balling it all up, and I freeze batches for future dinners when I don't have time to cook. If I'm really busy, I just plop a batch in the crockpot and come back later to drain the fat before serving them. I also like to cook them on my George Foreman grill. It squishes them into teeny tiny hamburger patties and my kids love teeny tiny things.

When it comes to meatballs, I'm a little like Forrest Gump's friend, Bubba: you got your Italian meatballs, Moroccan meatballs, BBQ meatballs, Chinese meatballs, tangy meatballs, sweet & sour meatballs, etc. etc. All you need is ground beef, eggs, and seasoning. They cook quickly and kids gobble them up.

Add a fun dipping sauce and some interesting veggies and you've got yourself an easy dinner.

Homeschool Art Class: Piet Mondrian

Today in Homeschool Art Class, we recreated Composition with Red, Yellow, and Blue by Piet Mondrian using markers.

We followed the instructions here:

We learned about Piet from the Making Art Fun webpage that we have found to be very useful for more artists.
