Week 22...
ALABAMA: Sweet Potato Pie
We didn't have time in our schedule this week to complete the homemade Sweet Potato Pie Recipe in the TM, so we bought Bruce's Sweet Potato Pie Filling in the baking aisle of our store.
We only had to add eggs and evaporated milk. We bought prepared (frozen) pie crusts.
It took about 5 minutes to prep and 45 minutes to cook.
Another new food that EVERY child in the house was willing to try. I think they have a vested interest in the food when they just studied the state and they are much more open minded about what foods they might like! ;)
If your week looks hectic...don't skip the's worth the time!

My son loves learning with as much media as is available. I found a CD by Jonathan Sprout called American Heroes #3 that has a song we love about George Washington Carver. It's #6: Peanut Man ... 657&sr=8-2

For the sweet potato pie recipe in week 22 (Alabama), I made it dairy free and it was awesome! I just used equal amounts of almond milk in place of the evaporated milk, and used Earth Balance Vegan spread instead of the butter. Everything else was the same. It was great. And if you need a simple pie crust to make from scratch, this is my mother-in-laws: Flour, half that amount of shortening, half that amount of milk (or almond milk). (so 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup shortening, 1/4 cup milk, makes enough for 1 large bottom crust).

Heads-up for soda bottle science experiment!

Unread post by Walkerfam6 »

Just a heads up for those who choose to do the experiment on page 24 in First Encyclopedia of Science in week 22. To avoid a HUGE flood, do not fill the bowl full with water like is shown in the picture. Make sure you have enough room left in the bowl for two liters of water to be displaced from the water bottle. I don't know why I followed the pictures without thinking, but the water from the bottle does have to go somewhere if you replace it with air from your lungs. In our case, we had about a liter and a half of water all over our school table and everything (including books) got! It was a lot of fun for our boys though, and we had a good laugh about the mess.
Better yet, this would be a great experiment to try in the bathtub :)
