A Trip Around the World: USA

This year, we will be traveling around the world through our My Father's World curriculum. The first stop is learning about our own country. We only went over a brief history, learned about the flag and attempted to learn each state. There were two recipes in the book that we decided to try out. They were Grits Casserole and Pumpkin Cake. This sparked a fun discussion of what is truly American food. Unfortunately we came up with mostly junk food and fast food (a sad reality of our country).

 Ladybug stayed with me in the kitchen until the very end. The others lost interest after we put the cake in the oven.
The results of their hard work which made for a delicious lunch.

YUM! I would love the Grits recipe! Not a big fan of pumpkin, but it looks delicious. Was it more like a "Pumpkin Spice"? Or straight pumpkin?

Miss you guys! Glad you are back into the homeschooling thing!
