So...today we decided to cook up our bountiful harvest and have a yummy snack with it all.
All of our friends assisted in making cactus cut potatoes with a sour cream dip and butter glazed carrots!
We started our activity by making the dip. Our friends were each able to pass the bowl around the table and show a great deal of sharing by each taking a turn to put the ingredients in the bowl.
After each child put their ingredients into the bowl, we each took a turn mixing them together to make a creamy, delicious dip for our cactus cuts.
Once the dip was finished, everybody helped Mrs.Zilkie and I slice up all the carrots and potatoes. Then it was off to the kitchen...
Once in the kitchen, we began to season the potatoes with a little bit of salt, oil and pepper and glaze the carrots with butter.
Afterwards, we tossed the potatoes so all of the oil and seasoning came together!
"Tossing it like a pizza!"
Then, each friend helped place the seasoned potatoes on the cooking trays!
After everything was prepared, we threw it all in the oven and after a little bit of cooking...it was all ready to eat :)
All of our friends and staff thoroughly enjoyed the spoils of our gardening and we cannot wait to have another harvest!
