Hot Potato Lunch!

On Tuesday we were very lucky to put away our sandwiches for a day and tuck into a delicious baked potato lunch! Vicky cooked the potatoes to perfection and we helped ourselves to some yummy fillings such as cheese, coleslaw, bacon and sour cream!

As you can see, although most of us loved our lunch, we weren’t all the greatest fans of the hallowed potato!

 

Milk, Cream and Butter….

Today we watched a video that showed us how milk gets from the cow to the shelves of our local supermarket. It was very interesting. After learning more about milk we got to try some.  Some of us enjoyed it on it’s own while others added a teaspoon of Milo. Either way, we all agreed that milk is both healthy and delicious!

After enjoying our milk we discussed all of the different foods that are made from milk.  Two of the foods that came up were cream and butter.  When I told the kids that we could make our very own butter from cream they didn’t believe me, so of course I had to show them!  We poured some cream into a drink bottle, added 3 marbles and screwed the lid on really tight! Then we stood in a circle and took turns to shake the bottle while listening to the songs, ‘The Hippy, Hippy, Shake’ and ‘Shake it Off’. At first we didn’t think it was going to work, but we persevered and after about 10 mins of vigorous shaking…………we had butter!  If you don’t believe me, see for yourself.

Here we are shaking the cream…..

And now for the end result. Ta Da…….

Of course we had to try it and it was delicious……
