The Elisabeth and Amanda Project
Amanda and Elisabeth came home with fistfuls of worksheets and projects related to Thanksgiving. On one, Libby stated her favorite Thanksgiving food is turkey, and her favorite Thanksgiving dessert is pie. Could be true... could be those are the only words she knew how to write. Either way, we are fortunate to have a chef in the house who specializes in both those dishes; Amanda came home with the following writing project:
How to make a turkey
Frist, you buy or hunt a turkey. Then, you put some sesning on it. After, you put it in the oven at 460 degrees for half an hour. Last, you carve it.
How to make apple pie
Frist, you get apple and butter and shuger and bread. Then, you put it in a pan. After you bake it at 100 degrees for half an hour. Last, you take it out and eat it.
Amanda asked me to read over the recipes and then asked, "How'd I do?" "Pretty good," I replied. "In some ways, you got really close, like with the temperature for cooking the turkey." Amanda asked, "Oh, was it supposed to be 462 degrees?"
