After looking at the first four houses this afternoon and as we were waiting for our appointment to look at a fifth house, we stopped at a park to fill out a rental application for a house we kind of liked (it was in hardcore ghetto, but at least the bedrooms were laid out in a formation we liked, it had a basement, and a decent sized yard) and to let the kids run wild. I expected that as soon as they were released from the van they would take off running toward the playground.
It turns out my children are squirrels.
Since we have all this craziness of looking for a house going on now, with the packing and moving that is to follow, I doubt I'll have a chance to post any fresh acorn recipes this year, but here is a compilation of my recipes and acorn instructions from last year:
Eating Acorns--How to gather and make acorn meal
Chocolate Chip Acorn Bar Cookies
Acorn Griddle Cakes
Apple Acorn Crumble
So now that you know acorns are food, get out there and start gathering them before the real squirrels get them all or they go to waste!
