I wonder how you say

Suzie Homemake in Spanish??? 

Yesterday was Labor Day here in Panama so we spent the day swimming and shopping with Tony.  It was a great day, and I must say this place is sort of beginning to feel like home.  We continue to meet new people.  I now have about 5 people's contact information.  I don't plan on contacting anyone soon, but I could if I wanted.

Anyway, in honor of the short week, we're going to celebrate Suzie Homemaker week.  4 days of fun homemaking things that I don't normally do.  Sounds good, don't you think?  Ya, I'm not sure, either.  Today, I'm making homemade yogurt.  13 hours of crock pot fun.  This woman enjoys her crock pot more than I do so I thought we would use her recipe.  I'll let you know!!

Now, I need your help.  Send me your ideas for fun Suzie Homemaker suggestions!!

I love that website! There is so much yummy food that I've made, not all in my crockpot though.

Ideas: Well, despite the fact that I don't care for banana bread and have never had it turn out- I made banana bread and muffins today. Haven't tried the bread, but the muffins are all gone!
Or you could try homemade tortillas.

You could make your own baby food, haha. That would be easy.
How about soft pretzels? There is an easy and delicious recipe at Confession of a Homeschooler blog. We've made it a lot of times. Also a yummy cinnamon-sugar tortilla chips and fruit salsa recipe my kids love from that same blog.

I'm thinking tortillas might be fun. Or pretzels!

I'll check the blog you mentioned!!

I found a recipe for tortillas from ErinJo on her blog. I want to do that too! I also really want to make my own yogurt, so you have to let us know how it turns out.

I always feel like a good Suzie Homemaker on Mondays after I've stripped and remade the beds, done the laundry, filled the fridge and make a snack for lunches. It's usually a pretty good day.

I've always wanted to make gigantic bubbles with the kids. Fill a little plastic swimming pool with lots of water and dishwashing detergent. Use a hula hoop to lay down in the water, pull up and swing across the air for a gigantic life-size, to the kids at least, bubble. Not at all sure that it would work, but always wanted to try and see!
