ZUCCHINI COBBLER MEALS IN Monica's MINUTES By Monica Sinclair When I came across this week's recipe, I knew I had to use it in our garden-themed month. I know I already used zucchini, but this was too good to pass up. I have had many cobblers in my life, but never one made from zucchini. However, knowing how much I love zucchini bread, I am sure this will become one of my favorites as well. Enjoy! INGREDIENTS • 8 cups chopped seeded peeled zucchini (about 3 pounds untrimmed) • 2/3 cup lemon juice • 1 cup sugar • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg CRUST: • 4 cups all-purpose flour • 2 cups sugar • 1-1/2 cups cold butter, cubed • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon DIRECTIONS 1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large saucepan over medi- um-low heat, cook and stir zucchini and lemon juice until zucchini is tender, 15 -20 minutes. 2. Stir in sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg; cook 1 minute longer. Remove from the heat; set aside. 3. In a large bowl, combine flour and sugar; cut in but- ter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir 1/2 cup into zucchini mixture. 4. Press half the remaining crust mixture into a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Spread zucchini mixture over top; crumble remaining crust mixture over zucchini. Sprinkle with cinnamon. 5. Bake until golden and bubbly, 35 -40 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Source: tasteof YOUTH FIRST TODAY IS YOUR CHILD READY FOR KINDERGARTEN? By Ashley Underwood Youth First Inc. As the mother of a child who will start kindergarten this fall, there's been a nag- ging question in the back of my mind: "Is he ready? " Beginning kindergarten is typically the start of formal education for most chil- dren, which can be an extreme transition from life at home or even pre-school/day- care environments. The academic, social, and emotion- al demands are much more intensive for children in kindergarten than what was previously expected. Despite these new demands, kindergarten is a wonder- ful opportunity for children to learn new things, meet new friends, and experience growth. So, what are some indicators that your child is showing readiness for kindergar- ten? According to the Mayo Clinic web- site, these areas are some common read- iness milestones that children can show: • Demonstrating a curiosity or interest in learning new things • Being able to explore new things through their senses • Taking turns and cooperating with peers • Speaking with and listening to peers and adults • Following instructions • Communicating how they're feeling • Empathizing with other children • Controlling impulses • Paying attention • Limiting disruptive behaviors While many of these skills develop be - tween ages 4 and 5, there is not a set age limit at which children obtain these skills. Some parents choose to wait until age 6 to send their child to kindergarten to allow more time for further maturity. What are some things we can do to help prepare our children for kindergarten be- fore they begin? The National Association for the Education of Young Children pro- vides a list of tips for preparing your child for kindergarten. 1. Help them develop independence at home. Encourage your child to dress himself, take his coat on and off and hang it up, use the bathroom without assis- tance, wash his hands without constant reminders, and put on his own shoes. 2. Teach responsibility. Start trans- ferring small responsibilities over to your child, if you haven't already. 3. Develop and follow routines. Set up morning routines that will transfer in- to a school setting. Getting up around the same time every day, getting dressed, and having an early breakfast together is a great way to transition to a school sched- ule. 4. Read aloud to your child. Read a variety of books, read the captions under pictures in the newspaper, even share the comics. Just read together! 5. Engage them in meaningful lit- eracy activities. Encourage your child to help you with thank you cards, shop- ping lists, or notes. 6. Acknowledge their feelings. Your child may express being nervous, not wanting to go or, alternately, feeling very excited to start school. Whatever they feel, take time to acknowledge and appreciate where they are. It is a big deal to send your child off to school for the first time, and parents want to make sure they are doing everything to ensure their child's success and hap- piness. Chances are you're already prac- ticing many of these skills your child will need for kindergarten. Remember to keep it fun and don't make it stressful for you or your child!
