Thunder Lab

Today was Thunder Lab day in FACS. Students made Thunder Juice (Orange Julius) and Thunder Twists (Pretzels). It was fun to see some of the pretzel shapes. I had snakes, rolly-twists, peace signs, and others. The classes did great. Some of the best clean-up jobs I have seen. A great benefit of teaching foods is that once again my room smelled yummy!

Eggs Benedict

Yesterday in Foods we made Eggs Benedict. My room smelled great! I think most of the students really enjoyed them.

Cheese Gromet?

In Foods we tried making cheese. It looked so easy at my summer conference... wasn't so easy in class. After trying for 2 periods I ended up taking it home to finish it over the weekend. Here is the results of my efforts...
We will taste it in Foods today... more to come!

The FACS class is just about done in the clothing lab. We have been working on making aprons since last week. The aprons aren't due until next class, but these two girls finished today and their aprons look great!! Way to go ladies!
As far as pillowcase pics... my camera malfunctioned and I lost the pics of the pillowcases (and a few others) I had. Bummer, because they were great too. Sorry.

Rice n' Pasta

In Foods we had a rice and pasta lab. Students made 3 different kinds of pasta and 3 different kinds of rice. They then did a tasters table. We talked about the nutritional value of each and what they did in the body.

Muffin Lab

In Foods we have been talking about carbs. The biscuit method and the muffin methoed are included in that. For the muffin lab, students made 6 different kinds of muffins. Here are some of the results. This group made pumpkin apple. They didn't let them cool before they wre removed from the oven. They also filled the muffin tin too much. They may not be pretty, but they tasted good.This group made pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. Notice the cauliflower top. Well done!This group made raspberry pecan muffins. Again, notice the cauliflower top.This group made orange cranberry muffins. Notice the flat top. That is a result of under-mixing. They tasted yummy though!
