Making Hinkelsteins!

Here we are making Hinkelsteins! Now that Mommy is on a kick to feed us good food (i.e. not so many processed crackers), we get to help make the snacks! Hinkelsteins are kind of like chewy granola bars...and she found the recipe in the More-with-Less Cookbook.

Flour (gluten free), oat flour, soy flour, flax, raisins, prunes, dates, honey, salt and milk. It makes a huge ball of dough that we get to taste (because there are no raw eggs in it) and pound down into the pans. It's fun. And we like to stick our fingers into it and make holes. It's okay, though. Mommy makes us wash our hands first.

[Sissy likes to eat the flour plain. Bubby mostly goes for the raisins.]

Sissy says: I 'anna hohawk too!

Overheard in the car

On the way home from eating out (at a fairly healthy place to eat).

Bubba: I don't want to go out to eat anymore.

Dad: Why is that?

Bubba: Because the food has too much fat in it.

Overheard in the car

Bubba: How many days does it take to fly to Texas?

Dad: Actually it only takes a few hours to fly, or drive. Depends on where you want to go. Why?

Bubba: I just want to go to Texas and play Ski-Ball.


Bubba: Is there a Hinkle Family Fun Center in Texas?

Overheard in the Kitchen

Dada: Sissy, I'll give you another piece of broccoli if you eat your soup!

(You know your kids like vegetables when you start using broccoli for your eat-your-dinner bribes!)

Overheard in the Car whilst Bubba's being Buckled

Mama: I love you so much, Bubba, that I want to eat your nose for breakfast!

{Mama makes little fake chomping motions toward his nose.}

Mama: But I won't, 'cuz I know you need it.

Bubba: What do we need noses for?

Mama: Don't you know what your nose does?


Bubba: It holds my boogers.

Report from Grandpa

Report from Grandpa Tennis:
"When we were leaving your house this morning to go play tennis, Bubba wanted me to drive in reverse all the way to Los Altos so he could watch where we were going on the monitor in the Toyota Prius."
