A little feedback from a mother that brought her daughter to a Flour Pot Kitchen class....
"Thank you.. and your sweet Momma! You did an amazing job! You are vary talented in many ways. Your home is beautiful. Not to mention .. your one excellent cook, and nutritionist.
Your patience with the kids while keeping them interested the entire time was awesome. I learned more myself from you. Thanks for letting me watch. ❤ I even had the pleasure tasting the meal with a few bites from my daughter. Hahaha.. 😜Delicious!!
I'll never forget what you said.. the less ingredients the better it is for you. I will cherish those facts and they'll be with me from this day forward when grocery shopping. We are also writing down what she learned today. Thanks .. again! 💓" B.L.
It's not about me. It's about teaching healthy habits with our food; reading labels while shopping, all things in moderation, tasting new foods, AND sitting to enjoy what we created with conversation around the table. When the kids and parents fo home inspired, to me it's priceless.
Veggie soup is just what this wintry weather week needs.
Keeping it healthy. Tons of white cabbage, a few shreds of purple cabbage, diced carrots, sauteed onions, fresh herbs, two cans of different beans, chopped tomatoes, beef broth and fresh garlic.
Taste, taste and taste some more until the flavors are just right. No meat or pasta, just veggies and legumes.
I added the rind of a Parmesan wedge to bathe in the broth and give a nice flavor. The soup will package this up into grab-and-go containers.
A handful of fresh spinach tossed in bowl when reheated and a few dashes of hot sauce equals soup perfection.
Homemade wins again.
This was by far one of the most fun classes for me. It was our first "chopped class", Flour Pot Kitchen style and this is definitely going to be an ongoing offering with different themes for the kids AND adults!
We started with a little instruction, I told them a little about what was on their mystery ingredient trays which they had to use in their recipes. Wait, they didn't have recipes to work from, I provided them with a little inspiration and they did the rest.
We had adults standing by to help when needed. The island was filled with anything they needed to complete their meal.
I had my computer open for them to look up things, but only if needed. Not one time did the kids go to the computer. It was so fun to watch the teamwork between the kids, (meeting each other for the first time). They worked amazing together brainstorming the different ideas, tasting new vegetables and using them in unique ways.
If you are looking for a way to gather your friends, staff, family this is great way to spend the evening team building.
