[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0NjY4NDE4XzExNDc3RDgw] Simple dishes to help heal us: Sauerkraut Sauerkraut is a similar category as kimchee. It also produces Lactobaccilus, but also two other cultures of bacteria. It takes quite a bit longer (up to a month based on fermentation and developing flavor), but it's made with common cabbage (versus Napa which many don't grow). I like it that way with fennel seed or anise seed. Other recipes are made with sweetened red cabbage, another common variant that's German. All of these have unique flavors and the sour bite of regular Sauerkraut is quite different than pickled red sweet cabbage which to me tastes wonderful with brautwurst. Mmmm. Makes me hungry and I just ate a huge Thanksgiving meal. It does contain vitamin C, like kimchee, and so it was traditionally used by some English sailors. You need pickled vegetables of many kinds since you want to extend your harvest. Consider doing this with green beans. They're delicious. If your climate will tolerate three growing seasons, then often cabbage plants are raised indoors then transplanted into the garden in early Spring (one of the first to go in along with broccoli) and then again in the fall. Some varieties will hold on in cold frames. You can't get the seeds to germinate when it's cold, so you start them inside for Spring. In late Summer, it can be too hot, so you can start them from seed and then put them out in the Fall. http://www.wildfermentation.com/making-sauerkraut-2/ Not fermented, but has a vinegar addition. Great when the apples come in or later to add to it from your supplies. Sweet German Red Cabbage...simply delicious. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/grandma-jeanettes-amazing-german-red-cabbage/detail.aspx Pickled Green Beans....adds some basil too for variety. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/crisp-pickled-green-beans/ [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
