Things I learned about Galileo ~ N

"Galileo was born in 1564 and he began studying medicine at the University of Pisa. He dropped out for mathematics with Ostilio Ricci in the year 1592. In this year he obtained the Chair of Mathematics in Padua, he then set to work on the inclined plane and the pendulum."

For home ec the kids made turkey taco salad. It was actually very good.

1 pound ground turkey, salt, pepper, chili powder to taste, can of stewed tomatoes,1/2 onion chopped, a cup of lettuce per person, 1/2 oz cheese per person.

Saute the onion, add the ground turkey. Drain turkey when browned. Add spices to the meat ... top salad with meat mixture, add your serving of cheese to the top. Your done. This takes about 15 minutes to make.

Camera died on me before I could get a pic of the completed project, but it was beautiful.
