My class this year is challenging. I have never taught a group of kids that talk so much and make noise purely for the sake of making noise. It is tiring and, at times, unbelievably frustrating.
I have been working with this group and now, mid October, I feel like we are finally in a good groove (most days).
Yesterday we were working on solving math equations using fact families. The class was super engaged, on task and answering questions. After our lesson was done, I praised them for their hard work and change in behavior from September.
One of my more challenging students put his hand up.
When I called on him, he just looked at me matter-of-factly and said “Well, I just couldn’t have done it without you.”
As a teacher, that is one of the greatest things you could ever hear…it was truly a great way to end my week.
I finally got through the backlog of recipes from the past few weeks and I am ready to try a few new things and throw in an old favorites that I have been craving.
|Guam Style Chicken Salad||Lentil Vegetable Barley Soup||Lazy Stuffed Peppers||Steak Tacos||Frozen Pizza|
- Old El Paso Restaurante Steak Carne Asada taco kit
- Green pepper, 3 other peppers (whatever color you choose)
- 2 Zucchini
- Red lentils
- Yellow split peas
- Chicken broth
- 29 oz can of diced tomatoes
- Ground beef
- 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes
- Beef or chicken bouillon
- Beef or chicken broth
- Tomato sauce
- Worcestershire sauce
- White rice

- Rice wine vinegar
- Chicken thighs
- Green onion

My love of coconut brought this meal back to the forefront of my mind and I just had to make it again.
This soup looks hearty, healthy and delicious. I love that I can throw everything in my crockpot, go to work, and come home to dinner ready!
I really like stuffed peppers, but they are a bit fussy to make for a weeknight dinner (at least in my house they are). So when I found this lazy stuffed pepper recipe, it seemed like a good one to try.
I was given one of the new Old El Paso boxed taco kits. I don’t usually buy stuff like this, but since I have it, I’m going to give it a try and see how it is.
