CoffeeHouse Schooling

This is the new term we use for "homeschooling"...and well, isn't it just cool?! Aaron is working hard on the WiFi, probably the knitclique basking waiting for some attention. Every Thursday Eve we have activities at hg...BeadMeet, Archiver Club, knitclique, and papercrafters...tonight is knitting, YIPPEEE.

The P'nut buttercup cheesecake is always a hit and I am trying to serve it up with some latte' art. Oh, oh, we also have the most fab pumpkin pie latte, the gingerbread house syrup is from scratch, and I will share!

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 cup lemon juice
  • Heat the above until sugar is melted and store in fridge for up to 2 weeks. hg uses this in their pumpkin pie latte' and their gingerbread latte'. YUMMM-O
Well, life is just busy, we are in study of John at our Wednesday eve Bible Study at Our Redeemer and goodness, God is so awesome to give us the gift of baptism and the forgiveness in that. We actually studied 3 chapters last night! I will work hard at updating this blog, and not just coffeehouse stuff...although that Luppa (Finish Cardomon Bread) is well worth a blog!

Thanks for the update on your coffehouse adventure!
The gingerbread house syrup looks yummy, as we would expect from you. :)
All those activities sound like fun! My scrapbooking stuff is hiding behind a sewing machine and half-finished curtains right now...
