I Love Casseroles so I made Another One!

I honestly love casseroles so much, they are so quick and easy to make and they’re just so good. I enjoy making casseroles just because I don’t get them a lot at home because my dad and brother don’t like them. I love them because they’re so many different kinds of casseroles and so it’s almost impossible to get sick of them. Also I’m living away from home and casseroles are great for university students budget because they make so much that you can reheat and eat more then once.

This week I made Hamburger Casserole, it was so simple to make, and really quick. I was look through Pinterest and this casserole came up and it looked so good. I also really enjoyed it because the recipe was super easy to follow and it came with a video also.

My Overall thoughts on this recipe is really enjoyable, affordable, and easy to make. I highly recommend for people to try this, if you love casseroles like me.

Enjoys Guys!!

Youtube Reminder

Youtube has turned into the largest online video sharing platform in the world. Youtube enables easy and fast video uploading and sharing. This allows for a large variety of content to be made easily available to the public. Teachers have zeroed in on Youtube as a great source to find educational content for students and promote digital citizenship.Like any widely used internet source though, it can often be abused.

 

 

 

 

The following remind conversation highlights some of the many advantages and disadvantages of Youtube as an educational resource. This conversation takes place in regards to a fictional grade eight social studies classroom. Ms. Glascock has assigned students to find current event topics to watch and discuss briefly during the beginning of class. Two parents, Jocelyn and Kaitlyn have learned about the assignment from their kids and have some concerns about the Youtube.

Both parents are expressing a concern for the use of YouTube in the classroom. The believe that their children have way too much screen time already and they don’t need anymore while they are at school. They are also very concerned with the current challenge that is all over the internet known as the Momo challenge. This challenge instructs the viewer to share the post in a certain amount of time or else they will die. It also gives instructions on how to self harm and commit suicide. Both of these arguments are true and are valid reasons why students should not be allowed on YouTube at school, but there are many benefits of it if it is used properly.

The teacher is using YouTube as a way to engage her students with current events. They are given the assignment and must critically search through YouTube to find valid, concrete sources. This task not only promotes critical thinking, but it also contributes to their digital citizenship. Digital citizenship is how you interact with the internet and other users on the internet.

Through this assignment, students are interacting with both political and social current events that affect them in one way or another. They are then able to connect with other people who are also interested or affected by these current events and discuss and ask questions. This builds a good relationship with technology and encourages students to use the internet for good and not in a way that might get them into trouble.

The Momo Challengeuses a very spooky photo of a chinese based character to coax people on multiple different internet platforms, including youtube into acts violence and self harm. Scarier yet, much of the Momo content is targeted at children. Click the link to learn more about the Momo Challenge.

I Made Chinese Food

Tonight I decided to go down a different path, I made a Chinese dish. I made rice to go with my Chinese Beef and Broccoli . I didn’t make minute rice, like I normally would off but I made a rice called Rooster Rice. Rooster rice is so much7dpovRcGclFXkDH52EA better than minute rice. I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever eat minute rice again. It takes longer then a minute but it only take 13 minutes to cook which is not even bad. I honestly highly recommend you guys trying Rooster Rice.

With my rice I madeBeef and Broccoli . I changed it up a bit. There was two ingredients that I did not include. I left out the red chilly flakes, and same with the Sriracha. My friend that gave me the recipe said those two ingredients make it way too spicy. I was not feeling spicy so I left them both out. This recipe is super easy and jl1SN+0aSQilVAZRDi2o%w.jpgsuper fast to make. Quick and fast and very good,

The only thing I didn’t like about it was I think I bought the wrong type of steak. The meat I used was very tough and really hard to chew. Next time I make this meal I will defiantly be carful with the type of meet I buy.

I highly recommend you guys trying this dish. It’s super quick and very easy to make and it taste so good.

Enjoy Guys!

Casseroles Are My Favourite

Tonight I made a Tuna Casserole. Casseroles are my favourite but the close people around are not too fond of casseroles. When cooking by myself I can make what ever I want. I googled casseroles and this one caught my eye. I’ve azFNCwb3RxOMXi3sJOQGignever made a casserole before so I was hesitate by how well it would turned out. I saw lots of people google Tuna casserole with mushroom soup, that was something I wanted. I love mushroom soup so how could it not work out. I don’t really like chopping onions because they make me cry, and because I didn’t have one. My friend suggested onion soup mix instead and I didn’t know how well it would turn out. I actually really enjoyed it. I also left out green peas because I didn’t have them , and I don’t think I’d like it in a casserole. Overall I would TnxLSoPrSNGURFl2i%+I3greally recommend it!! This is it all done, and me getting ready to eat it. Also if you make to much like I did, it actually reheats really well. It’s still saucy and has great flavour.

Wesch Reflection

I found this video very interesting. I didn’t know about all the different types of media that intersect with youtube. Now a days you can find anything you want on the internet . For my future classroom I think it’s important to show and teach kids about the internet. Important for them to know the benefits and disadvantages of the web. Since it’s becoming more and more popular each day I think it’s important for students to develop the skills on how to use the web. I would still prefer books over technology because its more of a challenge for the students, but the web it’s easier for them to find the answers. Future in schools web is going to become more and more popular. You can already start to see it change. Before students would have a computers throughout the school and you would have to take turns but now a lot of schools are giving their students computers to use during the schools. Schools allow cellphones more often, iPads all those technology. Soon I think everything will all be done online, and each student will have their own device.

When I was in elementary school instead of learning how to hand write we learned how to properly type on a computer key board. It just goes to show how technology is becoming the new thing.

I Made a Little Bit of Everything Tonight

Today my mom and I made some salads to just have in the fridge for my family to snack on, and then I also helped her make supper tonight as3RaVCQz5TI2BQkeM+KzUFw well. The salads we made today was a classic macaroni  salad, and my favourite macaroni salad. The red salad that we used to go to bonanza for. I learned how to make it and it’s so simple I can’t believe I know how to make it, and how easy it is. In the classic salad its just noodles, copped up cheese, green peas, green onion, and the dressing it just mayonnaise. I love these salads and it takes about five minutes to make both of them. I took this photo before I added the dressing to 00hKeekGR9mlXjcImghrxgthe dish. It’s super easy to make and its the best snack to have. This is the salad with the dressing on it. When I was making the red salad, which is my favourite. I went to make a video and the video did not work out so I have no pictures or video of that salad.

 

Then for supper today we made Chicken Monterey, corn, and rice with a bun on the side. I forgot to take pictures throughout my process but I have RSlT%XS0RjulSdr0ML09sw.jpgcertain steps of me making the supper. I have me peeling the corn, which is kind of an annoying process just because the corn hair get stuck to you. and then I have the corn in boiling water .

After all this I totally forgot to get more pictures of even video tape myself doing this. I’m not a very good multitasker so I struggle with trying to learn how to cook and also keep track of what I’m doing and capture it. This is my meal after I was done making it. It taste a lot better than it looks. I also don’t have my corn in the photo because I hate when my food touches. FVfvNk%DSeSIiDh%dxQOwg
