I had a great time in school this morning!
The kiddos in Mrs. Hanson’s first grade class were lots of fun.
Today’s lesson was all about soup recipes! We learned about the parts of a recipe and a little about how to create one. They are making a soup recipe collection cookbook!
The kids had a few minutes to peruse the classroom collection of cookbooks
Hello to everyone in Mrs Hanson’s class!!
[They read the blog on occasion!]
And then we built a recipe for Chicken Noodle Soup using Mrs. Hanson’s template and cards
The lesson ended with a little dancing and freestyle writing – recipe writing was encouraged!
Oh, and can’t forget to mention the fun fresh fruit snack they were munching on when I arrived! So happy to see Virginia also has fresh fruit + veggie programs. Being back in the school brought back all the memories of my dietetic internship at Salisbury Schools last winter!
When I left school, it was snowing!!
I drove home and had a quick snack – two dates dipped in PB (my new favorite snack!) before I headed downtown to noontime BodyPump. No biking today – the car was already warm and the snow was wet!
BodyPump was great, and I ended my workout with 26 minutes on the Stairmaster.
Lunch was fast and furious!
Lucky for me, Matt had hard-boiled some eggins while I was gone and we turned them into egg salad.
The egg salad was made with 3 hard-boiled eggs, 1 tbsp mayo, chopped pepper, 1 huge tbsp dijon mustard and smoked paprika (!!)
Served over romaine, sprouts and topped with smoked cheddar. Also some Cherry Balsamic was involved!
Deliciousness on the side:
Thumbnail biscotti for dessert!
After disabling ALL programs on my computer – including uninstalling and reinstalling a few – I think the problem might be with my wireless adapter. I finally plugged in the hard wire (and now have a wire going across my living room) and the problem seems to be fixed for the moment. [My internet has been going in and out intermittently for days and my computer seems to be the only one affected.] Hoping Matt knows how to order a new wireless card – not sure I can handle these internet cords in the living space! Better Homes & Gardens would not approve!
Afternoon work beckons – lots of bakery stuff to do!
