India Studies and a Recipe

We're doing Sonlight Core 1, and I also add in some extras here and there. Right now we're digging a little deeper into the festivals held in certain countries. Today we read about India's festivals, and then we made this delicious Indian treat. It's called burfi, and it is SO delicious. Here is the recipe:


1 lb. roasted cashews

1 cup sweetened condensed milk


1 tsp. flour

Crush the cashews with a rolling pin. Mix half the ground cashews, the condensed milk, and the flour in a saucepan. Cook the mixture for a few minutes until it is almost solid. Grease a baking dish with butter. Press the cashew mixture into the greased pan. Pour the remaining cashews over the top and press them into the mixture. Let it cool and then slice it.

Tuesdays at the Park

We've started a tradition this year: school at the park every Tuesday, weather permitting. It's lots of fun, and it helps with those mid-school year blahs!

Self-Care That's Not So Fun

As promised in my previous post, I am now going to talk about self-care that's not so much fun. This kind of self-care involves thin...
