Home Economics

For the first time in many years (and despite my recommendation in "A Simple Homeschool Thanksgiving,") we did school this week, because we're trying to follow the Wisconsin state school schedule. On Monday and Tuesday, we studied the usual subjects. But today we had Home Economics.

Dd16 made a cheese ball, garlic cream cheese potatoes, sweet potato casserole, cranberry/apple casserole and fresh cranberry/orange relish for tomorrow's Thanksgiving dinner. Dsds14 assisted in the kitchen during our morning session, and made chocolate cherry cake by himself (with supervision) this afternoon. He was especially interested in making the cake because he does not like pumpkin pie, even if it's homemade.

It may sound like we're planning on having many people over tomorrow, but there will just be five of us. However, we love leftovers, and I especially love not having to cook for a few days after Thanksgiving.

Hope you and your family have a blessed Thanksgiving!
