First, I’d just like to say that I think it’s funny that there is a national ANYTHING day. You name it, there is a national day for it. While I’m not opposed to celebrating the day zippers became patented (because I happen to appreciate zippers very much), I just find it interesting that there is a day to honor this occasion.
Perfectly fitting for today, Jennifer at Adventures in McQuill-land is hosting Making Memories Monday. I happen to think that making homemade whole wheat soft pretzels is a very fun way to make memories with your kids! Mixing them up, letting them rise, punching them down and shaping them – and then of course eating them together (with butter slathered all over) – what a great way to make memories! Maybe you could shape them into alphabet letters, spell out your child’s name or create some fun animals. Get creative! (Remember these fun pretzel shapes?) Or you can of course just enjoy shaping them into regular ol’ pretzels!
One of my favorite ways to make memories with my kids is by having them in the kitchen with me! Be sure to see how others are making memories at Making Memories Monday. And…scroll through these posts to learn more about getting your kids into the kitchen with you! (Hey, if you do decide to make some fun pretzel memories today, can you email me your pictures?! I want to see what you came up with!)
So, what day should National Heavenly Homemaker’s Day be? (It would be a day to celebrate all of you!!! And there would be lots of chocolate.)
