Remember I am a "PROUD PARENT OF A STUDENT"! Only a parent can understand the trauma and angst of trying to get a kid through trigonometry. After 1 semester, I totally agreed that my son might be better off, (in fact all of us would be better off) if he switched ships.
The only other option for his time frame was Food & Nutrition. Not only does he thoroughly enjoy the class, but to the delight of all of us, he wanted to fix us a meal of Jambalaya. It was amazingly delicious. So who needs trig, it might be better to know how to put on a good meal!!
In case you would like to try it as well, here is the recipe. Easy enough for a kid to fix. Enjoy!
1 lb smoked Louisiana style sausage sliced (optional if you want vege style)
2 Tbl. oil
1 1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped bell pepper
1 Tbl dried parsley
1 cup tomato sauce
1 tsp minced garlic
1 cup rice (used brown rice)
1 cup chicken or vege broth
2 cups water
Salt, pepper and cajun seasoning to taste.
Place oil and sausage in sauce pan and cook until lightly browned.
Add onion, bell pepper and cook until tender.
Add tomatoe sauce, parsley, and garlic and simmer 5 minutes.
Add chicken broth water, water and rice.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover with a lid and let simmer for 30 minutes or until rice is tender.
