Hi. New blog here. You can find our last chronicles at www.completelyoutnumberedby4.blogspot.com
1st day of Spring Break and it is 40 degrees. Boooo. So I'm letting the kids piddle around the house, while I try to get a few things done which means mostly they are just finding ways to argue with each other and Nash just fell out of a chair. Like, one leg was hinged on the seat and the rest of his body was dangling over the side, his head resting on the floor. How do kids even manage to do stuff like that?! Can you even imagine doing that as an adult? Well...actually, I can, so there's that.
BUT, I did make this awesome peach breakfast cake and the kiddos ate it up. Now, when you have four boy children who eat A LOT, I make sides with my meals so it all goes a bit further. This morning, in addition to the cake, I made hard boiled eggs with a glass of milk. The big boys protested eating the eggs and only wanted cake (The little boys were angels and ate every bite). I said that was fine but if they wanted seconds they had to have some eggs first and if they got hungry before lunch, they were just going to have to wait it out. I'm expecting them to start pillaging in about an hour. I'll definitely be shutting that down. I hate being a food Nazi, but it really burns my ass when my kids don't eat what I make and then complain about being hungry.
Here's the recipe:
1 stick butter, melted
1 1/2 c. rolled oats
2/3 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 15 oz. cans of peaches, with juice
Pour peaches and juice into a 9 x 9 square baking dish and set aside. Stir together the remaining ingredients (the mixture will be crumbly) and pour on top of peaches and juice. Place dish in a 375 degree oven and bake for 45 minutes. Serve warm with whatever your kids won't complain about.
