Books I Use In My Classroom

I have a few books I use in my first grade CCD classroom that I can’t live without. I have worn some of their book covers to nothing and the others are pretty dog-eared.

What books do you use in your classroom or home that you cannot live without? Please comment so I can add them to the list or the link to your blog to this post.

Church Potluck Recipe: Broccoli Salad

A friend of mine gave me this recipe 20 years ago and I am crazy about it. There are many ways of fixing Broccoli Salad, but her simple version is always so good and everyone just loves it at any church potluck.

Broccoli Salad

1 bunch broccoli
½ red medium onion, chopped
½ c. mayo
¼ c. sugar
1 T vinegar
½ lb. bacon, fried and in pieces
1 pkg. shredded mozzarella

Cut up broccoli and onion. Blend together mayo, sugar, and vinegar for dressing. The day before serving pour dressing over broccoli and onion; cover. Stir in bacon and cheese just before serving.
