Another Screen Free Week

Last year at this time, I wrote about our screen-free week, where we cooked gourmet macaroni and cheese, and learned that Gouda is not a popular choice for three year olds.

We recently finished Screen Free Week 2011, where our trio unplugged from our devices and did other things instead.

This year's Week included:

Sesame's Street C is for Cooking, by Susan McQuillan M.S., R.D.

My Life in France by Julia Child with Alex Prud'homme
Soar, Elinor! by Tami Lewis Brown

The Watcher by Jeanette Winter

The biggest discovery of this Week was in this book:

Turns out, the land of Oz has a princess.
No, not Dorothy.
Her name is Ozma.  And she kicks arse.
(And, like all modern princesses, she has a facebook page.)


  1. I have "My Life in France" sitting on my bedside table. I started it, and I loved it. But every few pages, I had to put the book down and go cook something in butter. Two chapters, I gained five pounds.

  2. Oh, and a screen free week sounds like an awesome idea.

  3. Tracy--I'm overdue on this comment, mea culpa!

    But the butter, THE BUTTER. I think part of why I loved this book was that butter had a starring role in absolutely everything.
