I feel certain you have heard the phrase, "Never a dull moment." If our family had a motto, this would be it! Fortunately, my family and I thrive on being busy.
|Sara and the 8th grade class of 2015.|
Daughter Sara is thinking back to school. It's not only the students that prepare for, and anticipate the first day of school, but teachers like Sara have school in mind as well. She has been rearranging and reorganizing her classroom library, "beautifying" her classroom, mentoring new 8th grade Language Arts teachers, and preparing for a student teacher from a nearby college. Never a dull moment!
She is a great example of one of those people that was born to teach! I know I sound like a bragging mom, but she, like so many other great teachers, always put the students first. She's creative and is always coming up with new ideas. I mean, let's face it- how many new and different ways can you think of to teach historical fiction and grammar, and still keep 14 year old's engaged? She goes the proverbial extra mile for the kids. Which is why there is never a dull moment for Sara!
So in honor of Sara, and dedicated teachers everywhere, I'm sharing one of the first recipes Sara learned to make-
Sara's Impossible Cheeseburger Pie
1 pound hamburger
1/2 cup minced onions, if desired
1 cup milk
3/4 cup Bisquick
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tomatoes, sliced
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Brown hamburger and onions, drain. Beat milk, eggs, Bisquick, salt and pepper. Put browned meat mixture in 10" pie pan. Pour liquid mixture over this and bake at 400 degrees F. for 25 minutes. Take from oven. Top with tomatoes and cheese. Return to oven and bake until knife inserted in center comes out clean. (5-8 minutes) Serves 6-8.
And then when Sara's school day is over, it's on to farm chores.
Never a dull moment...
