After I discovered that the school had a toaster oven, I debated going with the roasted Beijing duck but thought I’d better save the big guns for later in the school year. 😉 Start slow, build up. Life ain’t a track meet, it’s a marathon! Whoa, I just goggled the next line, didn’t see that one coming. Ice Cube, inappropriate. Turns out I have been singing it wrong my whole life. Actually, I think that’s true for about 90% of the songs I ‘sing’.
OK- Now I have that song in my head and am thinking about marathons. *Sigh*
Moving on to cooking class. Since I can’t go on facebook read a lot of food and running blogs I thought this could be my chance to instill some healthy eating values onto my students… or just teach them to cut down on the oil.
After checking out a couple of recipes online, I remembered that I am lazy and don’t really know how to cook. Teaching kids how to cook and be healthy= way too much work for this teach. What I did find though are the easiest peanut butter cookies in the world! 3 ingredients. Peanut butter, eggs and sugar. The recipe calls for 1 egg and a cup of sugar and pb but honestly it doesn’t matter how much you put in, they still turn out awesome! I surprised myself and I think the students were surprised too because I don’t exactly ooze kitchen confidence. Wait until you see my “oven mitt”. (Carolyn can attest to this too, anytime I “baked” anything at home, she did most of the work or at least laid all the ingredients out for me. Thanks roomie, I miss you!)
And the best part of cooking club? I make the kids do the dishes. 😉
Any recipe ideas for my next class?
