The last of my book orders arrived and here's what I have to share with you:
The CAFE Book: Engaging All Students in Daily Literary Assessment and Instruction by "The Sisters"...Gail Boushey and Joan Moser. After participating in The Daily 5 book study this summer, I am ready to sink my teeth into The Cafe Book. Thus far, it's unread...anyone hosting a book study?
Fifty Shades Freed: Book Three of the Fifty Shades Trilogy by E.L. James. This is the third book in the 50 Shades trilogy...I'm still on book 2...I think you know what it's all about...
The Worst Day of My Life Ever! by Julia Cook is about poor RJ who just can't seem to make a right decision due to his inability to listen closely or follow directions...sound familiar? After a heart-to-heart with mom, RJ gets explicit how-to's on ways to "really listen" and "follow directions" which makes his next day the best day ever!
You Get What You Get by Julie Gassman...a perfect book to go along with one of our favorite phrases, "you get what you get and you don't throw a fit!"This is about Melvin who lets his teacher's classroom rule slip out and is forced to abide by it at home, too.
Here's the recipe...I actually only had one pint of blueberries, so I cut the recipe in thirds and it turned out great!
Blueberry Crisp (serves 8)
for the filling:
6 cups (3 pints) fresh blueberries
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp. coarse salt
for the topping:
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant or quick-cooking)
1/2 cup chopped nuts, such as almonds
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. coarse salt
6 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1. Preheat oven to 375°. Make the filling: mix blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and salt in a bowl. Transfer to a 8-in. square baking dish.
2. Make the topping: in a medium bowl, stir together flour, oats, nuts, baking powder and salt. With an electric mixer on medium speed, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir flour mixture into butter. Using your hands, squeeze topping pieces together to form clumps. When I made this, I read "make the topping"
3. Sprinkle topping evenly over filling. Bake until filling is bubbling in the center and topping is golden brown, about 1 hour. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool 30 minutes before serving.
Let me know how it turns out...
