|End of the summer bliss, on to too much homework!|
But we are still here. Still talking about healthful and tasty foods for your kids. Still sharing our recipes, albeit at a slower pace as the pace around this house kicks in to high gear.
Just to pose a question out there to other parents, do you think your kids are getting too much homework? Spencer still is befuddled by the idea of being in school for 8 hours and then having 2 to 3 hours of homework piled on after school. When is there time for a kid to be a kid? I tend to agree with my kid. Enough is enough.
For our end of the summer treat, we picked the remaining basil from the garden and made a pesto with walnuts, evoo, garlic, sea salt, and grated parmesan cheese. We placed the wonderful pesto on Spelt Right pizza dough, along with slices of garden tomatoes, and a bit of grated mozzarella, and baked at 450 for about 10 minutes. The result was a yum, and a longing for the summer that is soon to be fall.
