Baking Through the Alphabet: The Letter H

The Letter H:

Letter H Meal:
  • Hamburgers
  • Hotdogs
  • Healthy Salad
  • Hidden Valley Ranch

For the letter H, we decided to bake Hanukkah Apple Cake.  We were making it because we were having guests over for supper.  We received a text about two hours before they were due to come over with a reminder that one of them was gluten and dairy free!  SO...instead of making it completely from scratch, we got some gluten free cake mix and substituted the butter with applesauce (because it's far cheaper than dairy-free butter!)  We placed the apples in the bottom of a 9x13, added brown sugar and cinnamon, poured the cake batter in and baked it.  We used these two recipes as reference: hanukkah apple cake and gluten free apple cake.

Movie Musicals:

  • The Happiest Millionaire***
  • The Hobbit**
  • The Hunchback of Notre Dame**
  •  Huckleberry Finn**
  • Hello Dolly**
  • Hercules**
  • Hans Christian Anderson*
  • High Society*
  • High School Musical (1,2,3)*
  • Hairspray

Have you ever seen The Happiest Millionaire?  This is by far one of my favorite musicals ever!  Again, we have Tommy Steele as a character in a musical, and Leslie Ann Warren, and Fred MacMurray.  It's fantastic and my kids LOVE it!

They also love The Hobbit cartoon musical!  The animation is pretty rudimentary but the music is pretty decent and pretty catchy.

My son didn't care much for The Hunchback of Notre Dame (remember that he doesn't like confrontation or people getting into trouble).  But it's a classic, so I have had them watch it.

The next three I think they could watch pretty easily, but Hans Christian Anderson, other than the song "Inchworm", is a little depressing.  High Society was fun, but the slow moving plot is rough on younger kiddos.

I haven't seen any of the High School Musicals or Hairspray, so if you have thoughts on those, please let me know.  Could kids watch them?  How is the music?  Do you think they are fun to watch?
