Recipes for kids abroad. Homeschool and Afterschooling for kids at home.

FOOD!!! Yes, I need pictures! My recipes need pictures around them to identify instead of just a title. They are tweaked to work for us in terms of ease, ingredients frequently on hand, real or pure ingredients(for the most part), our family taste, and usually SOY-FREE or easily adapted to be SOY-FREE. SOY-FREE tagged recipes still mean you have to know what ingredients you are putting in are truly SOY-FREE and even if is was SOY-FREE in the past, you have to check it each time you buy it. Ingredients change frequently and can even be different from store to store or expiration date to expiration date for the same product. Homeschool and Afterschooling notes and ideas are here too. I'll probably separater the blog later, but for now, this is the place for family and friends to look. Time Impaired Living has many definitions that I may update as time goes on or doesn't. To begin with, I'll say that Time Impaired includes time lost because of the schedule of a wonderfully dynamic family. It also includes the nonexistent sense of time when disability kicks in.
To see or print the recipes, Mouse over the image and you can enlarge the recipe. You can also enlarge it a second time.

Basic White Sauce for whatever...

This is the one Mom uses that is just inside the cover of her favorite Better Homes & Gardens red gingham notebook cookbook.  It is a good start for cream tuna fish and peas on toast or for chicken and broccoli crepes.

Thin sauce: (1 cup)
1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp flour
1/4 tsp salt
dash pepper
1 cup milk

Medium sauce: (1 cup)  (this is what mom usually uses)
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
1/4 tsp salt
dash pepper
1 cup milk

In a saucepan melt butter.  Stir in flour, salt, and dash of pepper.  Add milk all at once.  Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly.  Cook and stir 2 minutes more.
