This week we have homework but no test. I will be at the Sidney E. King Center in Bowling Green on Main Street. The next test will be on November 20th.

Homework and This Saturday

This Saturday I will be at the Virginia Historical Society Museum in Richmond at 11:00. This counts as extra credit-100 for a quiz grade!

This week’s homework is to make up 5 or more multiple choice questions on material we have already covered.

“There is a great Brazilian sweet that is like a bonbon and extremely scrumptious and delicious called brigadeiro! This is a great type of sweet that is loved here in Brazil! Try it! You can make it in the microwave too, just remember to stir every minute.”


  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine cocoa, butter and condensed milk. Cook, stirring, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let rest until cool enough to handle. Form into small balls and eat at once or chill until serving.
