These last week few weeks have been extra busy for my students. They are preparing for kindergarten graduation and getting ready to become full -fledged first graders.
After a busy morning working on proper sentence formation, we did take a little bit of extra time to play outside and appreciate the beautiful weather.
Meanwhile, back in the classroom…
By the end of the day –
Perfect time for a very simple, but very flavorful dinner:
Peppered Beef in Parsley Crust
2 T. peppercorns
4 T.butter, softened
1 cup parsley, chopped
2 lb. tenderloin roast
Grind peppercorns until coarse in texture and spread evenly on a large platter. In a small mixing bowl, blend butter and parsley well. Spread butter mixture over roast, covering all sides evenly. Place roast on platter and roll in cracked peppercorns until roast is coated. Bake at 425 degrees for 1 hour. Serve thinly sliced with creamy horseradish on the side.
Melon Salad with Honey Dressing
1 cantaloupe melon
1 honeydew melon
3 T. lime juice
2 T. balsamic vinegar
3 T. honey
2 cups lettuce
2 cups arugula
Slice melons in half, peel and cut into chunks. In a small bowl, mix lime juice, vinegar, and honey together, blending well. Pour over melon and toss. Place torn lettuce on salad plates. Using a slotted spoon, remove melon from bowl and place on lettuce, drizzle dressing over top.
