Another week of goodies from one fellow piano teacher to another!

Get some winter-themed Japanese erasers to use as manipulatives over the next few months in your studio!

Kids go crazy over any kind of Japanese eraser. (Plus, they think you’re the coolest when you have fun little things like this!)


Those awesome erasers are just one of several items on my “minimalist list” of piano teacher must-haves. (Amy Chaplin | Piano Pantry)

Generally, our tree and decorations go up the weekend after Thanksgiving, but this year due to various reasons, we’re delayed in the decorating festivities.

When Mr. Evergreen finally makes it into our living room though, I’m going to utilize these tips on How to Decorate a Christmas Tree Like a Pro (Williams Sonoma).



Let’s work to stay healthy over the holidays so we can enjoy it!

Here’s what I made with our Thanksgiving leftovers this year.

Potato Cakes: Mix 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes, with one egg (beaten), salt & pepper, 1/2 c. shredded parmesan or cheddar, and minced chives or scallions. Using 1/3 cup serving, form into a ball then flatten into a patty. Fry in a cast-iron skillet until golden. Serve with a dollop of sour cream.

Turkey Noodles: Bring 2 quarts leftover turkey broth (made by simmering the turkey bones in water) to a boil, add one large bag of noodles, 1 t. salt and 1/2 t. pepper. Bring back to a boil then simmer for 20 minutes or until the noodles are done and the broth has reduced. Add leftover turkey, chopped. Simmer for 10 minutes to heat through.
