Every year my school does Winterim for the first two weeks of school after Christmas Break. The kids have 1 class each morning, and one class each afternoon. Some classes are academic, some involve life skills, and some are just for fun.
I had the opportunity to teach cooking! A life skill AND fun. For 3 hours every afternoon 6 girls and I hung out at my house, cooked some good (and some not so good) food, and had a generally good time.
They finished out the two weeks by having a chopped challenge. Each girl picked out a random ingredient for others to use. These included cactus, seaweed, veggie straws, and more. Somehow they managed to make most of it work.
Here are some of the favorites the girls made. Enjoy!
Broccoli & Cauliflower Casserole (We all LOVE the Pioneer Woman!)
Oh…PS… I’m not allowed to repeat anything the girls told me about boys. But it wasn’t until Thursday of the 2nd week that they realized I had so much dirt on them.
