that's life.

well, i surely haven't posted in forever!
there are many reasons.
reason #1: good weather.
reason #2: lots of teaching, grad school, and planning.
reason #3: 
but, enough excuses.

here are some things i've been doing.

first, food. doi.
1. key west grilled chicken.
find the recipe here.
 seriously amazing!

 2. lasagna roll ups.
basically, boil lasagna noodles. i layered these ingredients: meat sauce, spinach, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese.  then, roll it up and put on a sprayed pan for 10 minutes or so. really great! 
 3. the best one of them all.
korean beef and broccoli.
one of the best things i've ever eaten that i've made. 
the recipe's here. you should really try it. we added long grain wild rice underneath.
oh, and what am i looking to make next?
i'm in a vanilla scone mood--trying to replicate starbucks mini vanilla bean scones.
i'm thinking of making them over spring break, though.
but it's on my mind.

and in teaching, we've been having a lot of fun! one quick fun activity that i did today... (my students have been battling with quickly adding 10 without using long addition/fingers)

easily differentiated--more advanced students had to create two digit numbers to add ten to, other students just started with the number that was actually on the die. they loved it!
find the handout here

in other news, our dog is fat. and always looking for squirrels to eat. which is the polar opposite of working off her winter flubber.
when will she learn.
