My best friend, Angie, suggested taking the Aviation Tour around my hometown. When her daughter did it two weeks ago, she had a blast. I had never visited many of the places, even though I’ve lived in the area for twenty-five years. It’s been fun to visit the places, especially with the Imaginative One, because he is interested in history and how things work.
Yesterday we visited the Air Force Museum. We have been here many times because it is close by and free to the public. The Imaginative One had a blast looking at the different planes, trying to figure out how they kept the planes up in the air, and trying to figure out what type of material they used to make the grass and snow in a few of the displays. The Wee One thought some of the planes were cool but really had the attention span of a gnat when it came to the museum. He kept moving ahead, which really put a damper on the Imaginative One and me trying to learn about airplanes.
The Imaginative One was funny when he began to talk about one of the areas of the museum. He told me that his memory was not fresh, but he did remember some of it. It was amazing what he did remember.
Two days ago, I posted about a recipe for an All-Star Muffin Mix that I found in Taste of Home’s Simple and Delicious magazine. One of the add-ins I used in the muffin mix was dried cranberries and pecan pieces. The original recipe called for either fresh or frozen cranberries. Even though I didn’t have either in the house, I had Craisins, so I used those instead.
After I baked a batch of those, I flash-froze them and then put them in freezer bags for later use. These are great for quick breakfasts, which I will need when school starts in a week and a half. I just put one in the microwave for a minute on 40% power. They are especially great with a cup of coffee.
