Today was our last class of the session, and what a fantastic class it was! To celebrate our graduation, we made party food. We started off the class with mini veggie hotdogs. We then made a salad person out of vegetables for our side. Finally, we topped off class with some delicious trail mix.
This session, we learned so much and tried so many new foods. I am so proud of our Taste Buddies! I wish you many more kitchen adventures!
PIGS IN A BLANKET:
We used pre-made crescent rolls (from the biscuit section of the grocery store) to upgrade our regular veggie dogs to pigs in a blanket! By adding a just a bit of sprinkled cheese, you can make this healthy party food a major hit for kids.
The Taste Buddies were master chefs and master artists today, as we made salad people. We used soy butter to attach our salad people to the plates for help while we were building them. They turned out pretty cute!
POPCORN TRAIL MIX:
This is a great after-school snack that you can make ahead of time. We used dried mangos and apples and raisins, but any dried fruit works well. What makes this recipe extra special is the addition of popcorn to our trail mix. I noticed it was the most popular ingredient! Make this in bulk and save time during the week.
