Well...the room is amost finished...I am quite happy with it...i love the new wall colours and we have been loving in this little room its so sunny and nice to be in...we are still to get the doors for the bookshelves and a rug for the floor....and a low lying tv unit....but Jacob happily does his schoolwork here now....so it has achieved its purpose...here are the befores and afters of where we kept his school work...and the befores and afters of the room....we alot of it anyway.....
Ok...here is  a llittle photo of Maddie with her new violin...hope she learns how to play it nicely...lol...
Camembert and Spinach Quiche
sheet of pastry
6 eggs
pkt frozen spinach
1 tub low fat sour cream
1 cup low fat grated tasty cheese
1 spoon minced garlic
1/2 grated onion
1 camembert cheese

1. Spray with oil a quiche or pie dish and line the pastry into it.
2. Place spinach in its packet, into the microwave for 5 minutes.
3. Whist this cooks, mix the eggs, onion, cream, garlic and grated cheese with an egg whisk.
4. Squeeze excess water out of spinach and add to the mixture...mix well.
5. Pour into the lined dish and add slices of the camembert, or brie or even marinated fetta tastes awesome too.
6. Put cracked pepper over the top and cook in a hot oven for 20 minutes. turn oven down and cook until golden...turn oven off once cooked and let it stand in the oven for 10 minutes...this wi let it sette as it will pop up in the quiche dish...
Serve with greek salad...and there you have my just about favourite meal...

hey girl, just stopping by to say hi!!
I've been reading your blog, about your little Jacob. My heart just aches for you both. I work in a downtown hospital in Toronto (and am very close with the folks in the respirology department), and will try to get some info for you.. funny cause my son who is now 7 still gets that croupy cough every now and again... thought he would have outgrown it too.. I'll keep in touch and let you know if I find out anything.

hugs to you,
Francesca

YUM-O! That looks great! I love your new room (so soft and elegant - and you have my favorite french doors with the little windows - a pain to clean maybe, but they are the doors of my dreams . . .) How cute is your baby violin player too! Hope you are having a great day and that all is well, xoxoxo
