Thanksgiving Leftovers & MORE!!

Just keep reading...just keep reading...just keep reading, reading, reading.
Sorry -- I pictured Dory singing as I typed and thought it might work.
Ok -- so wake up from that "turkey coma" and get ready for some great news!!
I am teaming up with one of my Primary Peeps for a fun link-up, giveaway, and sale!  My friend, Missy from Dirt Road Teacher is hosing this exciting event.  There is so much to tell ya, that I don't even know where to begin.
Let's start from the top:

Leftover Sale:

Problem Solving Calendar Math
How about a Thanksgiving Feast of sale items for 1 day only!
I've put a few favorites on sale:
All Caught Up Whole Class Rewards
  1. Problem Solving Calendar Math - These have been so much fun the past couple of months, that I've decided to make them for each month.  My kiddos love to pull out their scissors and glue and so I figured why not get them to practice some problem solving skills while they are at it.  And it's happening without the slightest bit of resistance.  For 1 day only - you can grab them for just $1 each!!  
  2. All Caught Up - One of my favorites.  This is a great whole-class reward system.  My class is moving through each of these rewards so quickly this year, I'm having to come up with more rewards.  And today, you can catch this for just $1.
  3. Christmas Kick-off - My top selling items are the Addition, Subtraction, and Multiplication fact tests.  They are a perfect way to get your students to practice their facts through timed tests.  They are the integral part of my Fear Factor Year-long Challenge.  For 1 day, they are 50% off!  That's only $3!!

Leftover Yummies:

Ok - so my recipe is really about my Sweet Potato Casserole and an idea I plan on trying out this morning.  A good friend of mine made this casserole one year and I LOVE it!  I can't imagine making it better as a leftover idea but I can't wait to try it out. 

Sweet Potato Casserole
  • 3 cups of sweet potatoes (cooked, peeled, and mashed)
  • 2 eggs (beat)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup of butter (melted)
Preheat the oven to 350degrees.  Combine sweet potatoes, eggs, sugar, milk, and vanilla.  I like to add some marshmallows into this mixture to make it a little more gooey.  Pour the mixture into a 9x9inch greased baking dish/pan.  In a separate bowl, mix the brown sugar, flour, pecans, and butter to make a topping.  Add the topping to the sweet potato mixture.  Bake for 25 minutes.

Ok - so now for the leftovers...I found this great idea for Sweet Potato Pecan Waffles. I figured since my casserole recipe already has pecans in it, this might be perfect.  The link has a great blog post with step-by-step directions (pictures included -- I'm such a visual learner).
