Thunder Lab

Today in Foods we had our Thunder Lab... For the most part. :)  First period had a fire drill and we didn't have enough time to do the pretzels so we improvised. They made cake in a mug with smoothies.  The other classes all made pretzels and smoothies.  Here is a shot of the pretzels...

My room smells great, but it is awfully hot!!  All the ovens cranked up the temperature of the room!

Foods First Mini-Lab

In Foods yesterday we had our first mini-lab.  The students did fairly well considering they didn't know any of the rules.  The product turned out okay (a few groups did the math wrong), and the labs were clean at the end of the hour.  So far, I have great Foods classes!!
