A Wintery Kids’ Cooking Class – Day 2- AND Summer Camp Dates!

Today, on this coldest day of the season, we created our own enchiladas and ended on a sweet note with our Mexican hot chocolate! The girls had the opportunity to fill their tortillas with a variety of fillings:

  • reduced-fat cream cheese
  • shredded 2% cheese
  • shredded chicken
  • spinach
  • tomatoes
  • black olives
  • black beans
  • corn kernels

I used my chicken verde enchilada recipe as a basis for our lunch today, but since each child is particular about their likes, I gave them the opportunity to be creative with their own enchilada. Giving them a choice is almost a guarantee that they will eat what you serve!

And to add some sweet warmth to this chilly day, we brewed up some Mexican hot chocolate!

When’s the Next Class?

I am planning on doing two  “camps” this summer. Each 4-day camp will be 2 days of cooking like I did yesterday and today, 1 day of meal planning (the kids will choose from one of three menus) and grocery shopping, and the 4th day will be making what they planned and shopped for. The cost will be $50 per student per camp, or $90 for two siblings. Right now, the tentative dates are:

Tuesday, May 29th-Friday, June 1

and

Monday, June 18th- Thursday, June 21st*

Each day will start at 10:00 and will end at noon. This is a hands-on class where they learn cooking and baking techniques, how and why to make healthy food choices, and have the opportunity to enjoy and savor their handiwork!

*Due to my husband traveling 4 weeks out of the summer, these dates are subject to change.
