The school the children attend and at which I teach is a charter school. As such, a few things are done a little differently than is traditional in American public schools. One of them is Intensive Week. Every year the week before Christmas break and the last week of the school year May are designated as Intensive Weeks. Rather than go on a typical subject rotation of English, Science and Math, the students choose from several different seminar-style classes and attend the same subject all week.
Very fun for the students. A lot of work for the teachers.
I am running a class we are calling Microwave Cooking: Beyond leftovers and popcorn. Basically, we imagine being in a dorm room or very small apartment with a microwave, refrigerator and very limited kitchen equipment. How do you survive?
Today we cooked three simple recipes: Cheddar Eggs (no picture) , Mini Pizzas and “Baked” Apples. Yummy!
All went remarkably well. More culinary fun coming tomorrow.
