Corn Chowder {#dairyfree #vegan} & the Tooth Fairy sent a letter

Alena has been loosing teeth two weeks in a row.  Each week another molar came out and this meant that the Tooth Fairy was kept very busy in our little house.  One night Alena left a glass of water out for her because she had heard that the Tooth Fairy likes to dip her wingtips, and/or her magic wand into some water when she visits.  At the visit - apparently - the color of the water changes to the color of the visiting Tooth Fairy.  Guess, what?!  Yup, the Tooth Fairy did visit and the water in the glass turned a beautiful green. Oh yes, the amazement was magnificent :)

Alena also left a letter each time with her tooth, and she was hoping to hear back from the Tooth Fairy. Guess what happened earlier this week?  Yes, you probably guessed correctly - both girls got a letter each from the Tooth Fairy.  Magical little letters, that even had fairy dust in them.  Can you say magic?!
Both girls were so excited; it was the very first time that Mia Rose has received a letter from the Tooth Fairy...so there was a LOT of excitement.  Take a look at the girlies...

Now on to the Corn Chowder we are having for dinner tonight.  It is easy, quick, satisfying and delicious.  All in one.  -  I also made a loaf of quick no knead bread {today with Whole Wheat Flour, 1/4 C Sunflower Seeds, as well as 3 TB of Sesame Seeds} to accompany the dinner.
