Pizza, Salmon and The five senses!

Happy Tasty Tuesday to you!! 

May your day be filled with lots of good tasting food!!

Name a food you absolutely love? Joey and Jinger love pizza!!

Did you know taste is one of the five senses?

 

Here is a list of five human senses in ABC order:

1. Hear- Sound waves enter our ears and travel through our tiny ear canals that lead to the eardrum.  

2. See- Light enters the eye through the cornea. That light passes through the cornea and hits the eye lens. The light moves to the retina and the optic nerve transmits the visual information to the brain.

3. Smell- We inhale air that contains odor. That air binds to receptors inside our nose and then the odor messages get sent to our brain.

4. Taste- When you eat, your saliva helps break down your food. The receptor cells that are located in your taste buds sends messages to your brain through your sensory nerves.

5. Touch- Our skin is the biggest organ on our body and every part of our skin has touch receptors which travel along the sensory nerves that connect to the spinal cord and the signals are sent to the brain.

 

Here is a tasty recipe for you to try out if you like salmon. I hope it makes your taste buds happy. Enjoy!!! 

If you have any allergies to any ingredients please don’t eat!


Salmon Burger Recipe:

Ingredients:

4 tablespoons of olive oil; divided

8 cloves of garlic minced

1 onion diced small

3 6oz cans of skinless boneless Pink Salmon; drained

6 tablespoons of Mayo

1 tablespoon of mustard

1/4 cup italian bread crumbs

2 slices of bread ripped into small pieces

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon of pepper

2 eggs


Directions:

Get all your ingredients together. Mince the garlic and dice the onion. Fry the onion and garlic with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large frying pan on medium high heat for about 7 minutes or until golden brown; stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside. In a large bowl put the drained salmon, mayo, mustard, salt, pepper, Italian bread crumbs, ripped up bread, 2 eggs, and the cooked onion and garlic; mix up well with your hands or a fork and form into 6 burgers. In the same pan that you cooked the onion and garlic in add 2 more tablespoons of olive oil and let heat up add the 6 salmon burgers to the pan and cook on medium high heat for about 8 to 10 minutes on each side or until desired level of doneness is achieved; be sure not to burn them. Remove the burgers from the pan and set on a plate with paper towels to drain excess oil off them. Serve on a multi grain roll or bread of your choice with lettuce, pickles, cheese, mayo, mustard, and ketchup or whatever your heart desires.

Success and Kindness

Happy Mentor Monday!! 

May you find the keys to your success and find a mentor to help you get there!

Does anyone need any help with anything? Do you need a mentor to help you achieve a goal? Do you just need to talk to someone about something, but don’t know who to go to? Let’s all help each other out. Let’s engage and learn from each other!

If you have a special talent and love to help others then mentoring is for you. If you can share your wisdom with us or someone else please do!! Help someone out from the kindness of your heart!

I can help mentor and give you ideas on writing and how to get a book published for anyone that is interested? I can give you ideas on how to learn how to homeschool your child. I can also listen and be a shoulder to cry on if you just need a friend.

Definition of mentor= "advise or train (someone, especially a younger colleague)."-by Oxford Languages

Definition of kindness= "the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate."-by Oxford Languages


Here is a list of books on mentoring and kindness:

The Axolotl

Happy Weird and Wacky Wednesday!! 

I pray your day is filled with lots of learning!!

Have you ever heard of an Axolotl before? They are so cute!! Joey wants to tell you guys all about this amazing aquatic amphibian! They are actually aquatic salamanders! They stay looking like babies their entire life. They come in a range of colors and have a unique ability to regrow their lost body parts. Isn’t that weird but amazing that they can regrow certain body parts when they lose them? Yes, that is right when they lose a limb, they can regrow it back in as little as three weeks. When the limb is lost nearby cells travel to the injury site and the regeneration process starts. We live in a very fascinating world! There is so much we can learn from the world around us!

 

Here is a list of some facts about the Axolotl:

1. They can live up to 15 years.

2. They can regenerate certain body parts.

3. They are native to Mexico's Lake Xochimilco and Lake Chalco.

4. Axolotls are a Critically Endangered species.

5. They stay looking like babies their entire life.

6. Axolotls can grow up to 18 inches long.

7. They eat worms, small fish, and many other things that live in the water.

8. Axolotls do not have eyelids so they sleep with their eyes open.

 

Here is a list of books about Axolotls:

1. Axolotl!: Fun Facts by Susan Mason

2. Cute as an Axolotl: by Jess Keating

Facts about water

Happy Teachable Tuesday!!

Hey you all!! It is Teachable Tuesday and Joey is here to tell you about water!

Did you know that water is the only substance that has originated naturally on Earth in three forms, a liquid, solid, and gas? Water moves around the Earth which is known as the water cycle. The average water molecule only spends less than a week in our atmosphere. A single drop of water contains billions of water molecules. A water molecule has three atoms: two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom also known as H2O.

The water cycle consists of 7 processes: evaporation, condensation, sublimation, precipitation, transpiration, runoff, and infiltration. Can you tell us about each stage of the water cycle?

 

Here is a list of facts about water:

1. Water makes up about 70% of a human’s body weight.

2. Water regulates the earth’s temperature.

3. Water helps deliver important nutrients to all the cells inside our body.

4. The human brain is made up of about 75% water.

5. Hot water freezes faster than cold water.

6. Frozen water is about 9% lighter than water; that is why ice floats when in liquid.

7. Water covers about 70% of the earth’s surface.

8. Humans need to drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration.

Water is good for you so make sure you drink plenty of H20 today!!
