As recently mentioned, the Nutshell Library is one of our favorites. Today Hubby's idea for his ongoing "literature enhancement curriculum" (read: fun homeschool-y projects) was to make Chicken Soup With Rice.
He and the kids went merrily off to the store this morning to buy a bay leaf. Actually I tagged along for that part. Who would miss a walk through the crisp, sunshiny September morning? Then they measured and scooped and boiled and chopped and stirred.
Then for lunch they all ate Chicken Soup With Rice, laughing and saying the rhymes from the book.
