Clean Food Challenge: Day 4

Thanks everyone who recommended snacks for me to try! I'm definitely going to try some out.

Today's meal: Dinner

Tonight, I made the homemade egg rolls I mentioned yesterday. They were great! This is, of course, another Pinterest find. But really, I was inspired by this recipe but than changed it to fit my needs.

BBQ Egg Rolls:

2 chicken breasts: cooked (I pan cooked with a little sesame seed oil) and finely chopped
Package of Egg Roll Wrappers: These were all natural, and perishable! Just an FYI you find them next to the bagged salad in the grocery store - I spent way to long looking for these.
Shredded Cabbage
Cilantro: finely chopped
Carrot: Shredded and finely chopped
Green Onions: Finely chopped
BBQ Sauce: I used my Dad's homemade sauce to keep it real

Preheat the oven to 400. Combine the chicken and the BBQ sauce together to taste, salt and pepper to taste. I didn't use that much sauce, just enough to give the chicken some flavor. Combine the cabbage, cilantro, green onions, and carrots together.

Place chicken mixture on to egg roll wrapper. Then place cabbage mixture on top.

Roll the wrapper as instructed on the package. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until golden brown. I served them with white rice and steamed broccoli.

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2020

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2020 UPDATE: This list is updated for another year! Enjoy a variety of Montessori friendly finds from both major retailers and smaller shops!  So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created toys, but only works for classroom settings. While there are many works that I recommend for home school use, you won't find these

Sensitive Periods from Birth to 6 - A Chart and Guide

Dr. Maria Montessori spent her life observing, studying, and writing about children. During her lifetime of work she discovered that young children move through a series of special times when they are particularly attracted to specific developmental needs and interests. She called these times, sensitive periods. During the sensitive period, children learn skills related to the sensitive period with ease. They don't tire of that work, but seek it, crave it and need it. When the sensitive period passes, this intense desire is gone, never to return.  That doesn't mean the skill is lost forever once the sensitive period is over. Instead, it just means that it will take a more conscious effort to learn. As Dr. Montessori explains,  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. "A child learns to adjust himself and make acquisitions in his sensitive periods. These are like a beam that lights interiorly a battery that furnishes energy. It is this sensibility which enables

Our Kids' Montessori Gift Lists 2020

With the holiday season upon us we've been making lists and gathering gifts for the Kavanaugh children. It's always a fun process of observing my children, seeing what they would really be interested in and making some decisions based on what I see. This year is different because I'm also making decisions knowing that we are looking at a very long and quiet winter ahead. So that's influencing the amount I will buy and the specific choices I will/have made.  Henry and Nora are also at the point, being into the second plane of development, where they heavily influence the items on the list and what is ultimately purchased. So, you'll see that while Montessori influences what I will purchase and what goes on their list, so does their own preferences and personality.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you.  Theodore Teddy is 14-months-old right now and as the fourth baby, we have so many toddler things. But, there are a few things I've still found tha
