This recipe quickly won over the family. I used two fresh from the garden Romas as well as home canned tomatoes. The onions/shallots, garlic, okra and mint were also grown on the homestead. Even if you can't get these all from your back yard I still think this recipe is a winner.
According to Rasmussen, 73 percent of American adults have been following the news about critical race theory “somewhat closely” or “very closely.” Even more importantly, Americans believe that critical race theory “will make race relations worse” by a 19-point margin.
Board of Education member Brad Young spoke on WFMD 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 25. Critical Race Theory (CRT) was a topic of discussion. Young said that CRT isn’t in the FCPS “curriculum.” That’s an important distinction and he chose his words carefully. CRT is not in the curriculum.

On Thursday July 15, 2021, Ms. Jarman’s appeal hearing was heard. The sentence handed down was restitution in the amount of $24,920 and three months in jail. The restitution amount was unchanged; however, she was given more time in jail.
Nationally, public schools lost 1.5 million students last school year — roughly a 3 percent drop and the largest since the beginning of the century, according to federal data. Much of that enrollment decline was driven by parents holding their kindergartners out a year. The question now is whether the profound frustration over remote learning and mask mandates, combined with recent outrage over critical race theory, could motivate more families to seek other options.
