What's Going on in Room 9 Right Now

Fall is here, and I'm trying to be craftier with my kids. This week we have several projects going on that I'm pretty excited about. The only bummer is I get to spend some quality evening time making up the examples! So, here are my welcome to fall activities. Also, I wanted to share my ice cream club for addition facts that I am doing with my 2nd graders. They are so into their timed tests, and it is really working on getting those little facts in their heads! When they pass all of their facts tests, yes, they are so lucky as to get to eat some ice cream with me!

Zucchini Bread

Well, this was my first attempt at some from scratch baking in a while, like, quite a while. And, I had never made zucchini bread, or any kind of bread for that fact, before. With all this being said, I was pretty happy with the results. I also realized that there needs to be baking instructions for "dummies". I mean, I need directions that give me specifics. For example, I want the recipe to tell me that it is ok when my bread batter/dough/whatever gets so thick that it is making my hand held mixer produce a faint odor of burning motor! Also, I need the exact amount that should be placed in each loaf pan. Since it didn't tell me, I felt like I didn't have enough, which resulted in a 5 lb loaf of zucchini bread! Now I'm thinking about pumpkin bread...
