Random list in no particular order.
Sourdough bread making supplies – read the Tartine book, make the Tartine bread. Come on, if you’re homeschooling, you need chickens in the yard and sourdough in the oven. While you’re at it, if you like pizza and backyard entertaining, get the Pizzacraft PizzaQue. Make your sourdough pizza in it. It’ll be magic.
Jacobsen salt – rosemary one is just unreal.
For documenting homeschool work and photos (if you need to for the state or just for fun) – print onto stickers from your phone using this printer.
Gifts for kids:
Iwako erasers – take them to dinner with friends who have kids. They’ll love you.
Glow in the dark scorpion necklace. This isn’t a joke. Kid-tested.
Maldon salt pinch tins – my foodie aunt says it’s okay to take these to restaurants. Smoked ones too!
Various colors Expo markers at Target! $5.09 a pack.
The Wednesday Chef and her soon to be released German Baking Book.
Overnight sourdough waffles – you can buy a sourdough starter from the King Arthur site or just ask a friend who uses it for a little bit to get started. This recipe is one I make over and over. Sourdough isn’t much work and is totally worth it.
