Welcome to the blog of Lighthouse Christian Homeschool!

This blog serves three purposes:

1. To have a place to 'jot down' the day to day happenings in our homeschool for our support teacher to see, in hopes that some of the things we do will fit nicely into the provincial learning outcomes.

2. To keep my family up to date on what we're 'up to'.

3. To glorify God.

So on that note, come on in!

Irish Potato Pancakes

While studying the Irish Potato Plague of 1845-1850, we learned just how important potatoes were to the Irish people. Over a million Irish died of starvation caused by the potato blight in just 5 years. Our project was to try out some Irish food that used potatoes. We decided to make Irish Potato Bread, which ended up looking more like potato pancakes. Here are some photos of our project:

First we had to peel and boil the potatoes
 Then it was time to mash them
Add the rest of the ingredients to make a dough
Make the dough portions into patties
Fry and Eat! They were quite good! 
Some of us had them with sour cream and some preferred butter
