2nd Class Mars Bar Cake

We had great fun making chocolate cake in the parents room to eat at golden time.

Apple and Rhubarb Crumble

With Summer just around the corner, not that the weather is anything to go by, we have started learning about the different types of fruit that are in season. Today we learned a little bit about rhubarb. We made a delicious apple and rhubarb crumble from scratch and it went down an absolute treat with a little scoop of ice-cream…clean plates all round!!! 🙂

Pancake Tuesday in Senior Infants

Vegetable Pasta Bake

Today the Junior Infants made a delicious Vegetable Pasta Bake. We have been learning all about healthy foods in school over the past two weeks and this week we have been learning about healthy vegetables. Yesterday the class made a shopping list for Ms Mc Hugh of all the different vegetables we would like to put into our pasta bake. We agreed on red peppers, green peppers, yellow peppers, carrots and broccoli. This is how we made our delicious and healthy pasta bake;

First we washed our hands (very important when working with food).

Next we chopped up all the vegetables into small pieces.

Then we put the pasta, which had already been boiled, into a big bowl.

After that we added in some pasta sauce made from fresh tomatoes and some tomato Passata.

Then we added the small pieces of vegetables to the bowl and mixed them in through the pasta.

Finally we sprinkled some grated cheese on top before Ms Mc Hugh put it into the oven to bake for 20 minutes.

After letting it cool we tucked in…delicious!!! 🙂

Making Biscuits

Senior Infants baked some biscuits last week for their parents to eat!

We learned the names of the ingredients we needed and then we helped to pour, mix, whisk, kneed (teacher did this part!) cut and bake our biscuit mixture. Our parents came in the next morning and had some biscuits with a cup of coffee while they talked to teacher and Ms Hunt about our plans for this term in school.

And eating!!!

And eating!!!

Making Pizza

Today Junior Infants made some delicious pizzas. We used lots of different ingredients to make the pizzas. We had lots of fun making them and we had even more fun eating them. They were delicious…empty plates all round 🙂

Beetroot Burgers

The children in 5th class made beetroot burgers in March. Everybody in 5th class helped out making the burgers. The burgers were deceptively tasty and most of the children in 5th class tried them as part of our healthy eating programme in the school. The burger patties were made from the following healthy but delicious ingredients
Grated Raw Beetroot 200g
Grated Feta cheese 100g
Chopped Walnuts 100g
Finely chopped Red Onions 50g
Porridge oats 100g

Spicy Potato Wedges – Value for money!

For Golden Time 6th class made spicy potato wedges. We made enough for the whole class – 21 children.

Here is our shopping list:

Schwartz Spicy Cajun Mix (€1.60 x2) €3.20

2 ½ kg of rooster potato €3.49

Total = €6.69

(* We also used ¾ tablespoons of cooking oil.)

We calculated that it cost €0.32 per portion.

(6.69 ÷ 21)

Using the website www.justeat.ie we researched how much a portion of wedges cost in various local fast food restaurants and takeaways.

We discovered that the cheapest potion cost €2 and the most expensive cost €3.50.

The wedges we made were delicious and much cheaper!!
