Tasty Tidbits

There are so many events and activities going on right now that it's taking me awhile to finally catch my breath!

After much ado, last Thursday was the first 'Cooking With Moms' after school activity for the kindergarten - second graders. We had a FULL house with 13 kids showing up. I'm co-teaching the class with another mom, and we're having a blast designing our menus and shopping for the kids.

For our first class we decided to make popcorn as our snack, followed by french toast. Betsy showed everyone how to make the popcorn from scratch, and after wards, the kids all took their places at the table and made their own french toast - from start to finish. Each one cracked their own egg, scrambled it with the milk and vanilla, and dipped their bread on both sides before we put it on the griddle. The toppings? Why fruit, syrup, and chocolate spread, of course!

Love the hats. If you find any particularly good recipes, post 'em, please. My kids love to cook, so I'm forever looking for fun things we can make together - with or without chef hats.

Love it! Seriously girl, I would still be in a ball crying if I had to do all you do. The move, the adjustments you have made....You just jump right in there huh?

Becky-Home-Ecky indeed. Great job.

That is a great idea for a class! I wish we had one around here. My daughter loves to cook, but alas, I don't.

Do those hats look adorable or what?!

I've been on a vanilla freak out the past week or so, and I'd totally forgotten that french toast is made with a little vanilla in the mix. I'll have to make those very very soon.

You know, I make popcorn "from scratch" every day as a snack, and it's surprising how many people (adults, even) don't know how to make it. Kudos to you for showing all those kids!

And I love the little chef hats!
