Somehow another fictitious character has invaded our little space. Lola. As in Charlie & Lola. She loves pink milk, I did, and my girls...well they can't stop talking about it. It really is their "favorite and best" too. As a 70's latchkey kid I mixed the Nestle Nesquik Strawberry powdered mix with milk on a almost daily basis. But as a mostly conscientious mommie, I have refused to buy it. So in my aim to consume less this year, I decided to whip up a healthier version when Janae begged for it yet again. I threw 5 cut strawberries, 1.5 cups milk, and a tsp of sugar into a blender and pureed it for a half a minute. Janae had seconds. Horizons makes a strawberry organic milk too.

I have perfected homemade biscuits. And we can't stop eating them. Really. This is a Paula Deen recipe that requires no crisco. Just butter baby. Here are my tips on making flaky, slap ya kid biscuits: where you can, use organic ingredients; after you cut the biscuits, let them rest in the pan for 20 minutes; let your kids play with the dough scraps and flour. Bake at 450 for 10 minutes and they will melt in your mouth. I'm not kiddin'.
