Children’s Book Debut
So happy to announce that my first children’s book, Backyard Breakfast, is available for pre-sale wherever you buy books. The book is about a little boy who finds everything he needs for a delicious, healthy breakfast right in his backyard.
Even if you don’t have a big backyard with lots of space for a garden and chickens, you can still enjoy some parts of the story using herbs and small containers. We no longer have a yard with space, so we love to find creative ways to bring fresh foods into the kitchen. The boys plant a “salsa pot” each year. It has cilantro, jalapenos, and cherry tomatoes.
We like to have a little green space for several reasons.
- It encourages time outside.
- It gives the boys something to take care of. They have to water and weed.
- It teaches patience because, boy, does it seem like it takes forever for little sprouts to grow.
- They enjoy more time in the kitchen, eating healthy foods when they get to harvest the items with their hands.
