I'm getting better at letting the kids cook. Mamma's boy is a baker and loves cornbread. Really loves cornbread. The Girl's spicy black bean soup was the bomb! As I may have stated before, if you are planning on letting the kids cook, make sure that you tack at least an extra half an hour onto the planned making or make sure it isn't crucial for the next meal.
First day back at school:
We compared homemade rough puff pastry to bought and I demonstrated a cheese and onion jalousie with the two pastries.
In the afternoon I had the pupils analyse pot noodles in groups and then I showed them how to make a much better 'own' version. They liked own version best. (thank goodness)
