This, That, and the Other...

What's Cookin'?

Youngest dd and I made Laura's wonderfully easy truffle recipe at  The idea was to make them ahead for our All Saints celebration ("St. Lucy's Truffles").  However... I'd better get them in the freezer fast because my magnesium deficiency is making me eat too, too many!  I thought my days of chocolate cravings were over :).

Peanut butter recalls (manufactured by Sunland, sold under different names):

Free Viewing of Genetic Roulette (until Oct 17th).  Please take a bit of time to watch even a bit of this for your health's sake and our children's sake... and please consider voting yes on Prop 37 if you are in California ~ we are all depending on you! (It's information, not regulation)  A fictional spy thriller may have less intrigue and subterfuge than this GMO issue:

Albertson grocery stores have Sanderson chicken on sale right now.  No, it's not organic... but better than regular chicken.

What's Schoolin'?

Great Books Readings for the Anglicum Academy 4 year Great Books program.  I printed it out as a resource but we will not be following it exactly.  I was affirmed by seeing some books in there that we are already reading with the olders:

They recommend Grammar for Writing Complete Course - Level Gold for 12th grade.  We do grammar instruction as a natural part of writing instruction along with the Montessori R and D manuals.  However, this may be good to have in their portfolios; although they would only need to do the last part since they do other writing and are beyond what the book teaches in that aspect.

Curriculum Planning sheet for Texas residents (thanks to T for sharing!):

Curriculum Planning sheet for other states:

History in His Hands: A Christian Narrative of the West was recommended by M on the Catholic History forum:

And the Other...

Free viewing of Under Our Skin .  As a Lymie I can't wait to watch it ~ maybe uninterrupted?  I can't believe that I've never seen it:

Age of Opportunity was recommended on a loop during a discussion about teens.  I haven't read it yet, but since I have 2 teens and one is almost a legal adult this book is on my 'read' list:

Any referrals from associate links help to support our homeschool.
