Thursday – 3/30 

This class needs to go to computer lab B220 from as soon as you take attendance to 12:26.  While in the lab, students should work on doing a one page research report answering questions relating to one health concern they want to know more about and have questions concerning how food/nutrition/overall wellness plays a major role to help overcome this disease, recover quicker, improve health and outcome. They should also include information about various health concerns that might influence not only consumers’ food choice motives but also consumers’ subsequent attitudes toward healthy eating.

 Examples:  Cancer treatment/chemotherapy/radiation, Diabetes, Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Hyperactivity, Digestive Disorders, Food Allergies/Intolerances, Osteoporosis, Kidney Disease, AIDS/HIV, Obesity, or a topic of their choice they want to know more about.

What do we know about this disease?  Who might be more susceptible to it?  Why is it a hereditary concern? What progressive treatments are being developed relating to improving nutrition and wellness? How does food/nutrition help improve the effects of the disease?

Good website:  https://www.nutrition.gov/nutrition-and-health-issues

They can go to my website to find this information through the LSW website and looking for McCranie in the teacher list under academics then look at the current posts on the right side of my page.

Return to the class at 12:26 for a speaker who is an officer in FCCLA (state/national?)  If she is running late, doesn’t show or the presentation does not last the 30-40 min. she said it would then have the students share some of their findings about their research papers.

Pizza Dough Recipe and Marinara Sauce:

Pizza Dough and Marinara Sauce


Activate – 2 1/4 t. yeast + 1/4 C. warm water + 1 t. sugar (wait for 1/2 ” foam)

Mix – 2 C. flour + 1 t. salt

Make a well in the flour mixture – Add 3 T. olive oil + yeast mixture + 1/2 C. warm water

Mix all ingredients very well. Scrape out mixing bowl to place dough on floured surface, knead until triangle test works. Add a little more flour if needed to keep from being very sticky. Grease large bowl to allow dough to rise 1st time.

Take dough out of bowl when doubled in size; punch down; let rest for 10 min. Roll into large round pizza shape to fit your pizza pan, forming a crust edge. Dock the crust so it won’t bubble during baking. Place the docked crust in a 400 degree oven (without the sauce or any toppings) for 8 min. Take out of oven; spread marinara sauce on baked dough and top with your favorite toppings. Bake pizza for about 15 additional minutes.

Marinara Sauce

1/2 C. tomato sauce

1/2 C. tomato paste

2-3 T. stewed tomatoes

1/2 t. salt

1/4 t. pepper

1/2 t. basil leaves (dried)

1/2 t. dried oregano leaves

1/4 t. thyme leaves

Mix all ingredients together and use on pizza dough when it comes out of oven after the docking. This sauce does not have to be cooked before you use it.

Pizza Topping Ideas

1 1/2 C. shredded mozzerella cheese

1/4 C. diced onion

1/4 C. diced green pepper

1 garlic clove, minced

1/2 lb. ground beef or pork sausage (browned and grease removed first)

pepperoni slices (about 15-20, or your decision just don’t get carried away with pepperoni!!! or your pizza will be too greasy!)

*Another idea – Use the white sauce recipe and add 1 C. cooked chicken pieces!

Cherry Drop Cake  shared by Allie Davis

Grease a 12″X18″ baking pan.  Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.   Cream together 2 sticks of margarine (at room temp.) with 1 3/4 c. sugar plus 4 eggs, adding one at a time;  next add 1 t. vanilla.  In another large bowl add 1/2 t. salt 1 3/4 t. baking powder and 3 c. flour.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients slowly.  Place 1/2 the dough mixture, and spread onto a buttered 12″X18″ baking pan.  Pour 1 can of cherry pie filling onto the dough mixture.  Drop the remaining dough onto the top of the cherries.  Bake for about 30 min.
