25 May

This wonderfully hilarious(and accurate!) cake was brought to my school for a student’s fifth birthday party! It was probably the best cake we’ve had all year….not too sugary and the fondant wasn’t too thick and gooey. A cute cake and a great party in my classroom!

This delicious meal is courtesy of my Grandpa Heley. The recipe is simple and oh so tasty.

Ingredients:
-One large white onion
-Salt, pepper
-Cinnamon
-Two tablespoons of butter
-Garlic powder
-Curry powder
-Foil

Hollow out middle of whole onion. Place inside butter and all dry ingredients. Wrap in foil. Bake in oven on medium heat for 45 minutes.

Voila! You have a warm, soft, deliciously flavored onion that you can eat as a whole meal or as a side dish.

Homemade Pizza & Carrot Soup

This soup was inspired by Ms. Boni, who is the ruler of all thing KG at Amanda’s school. While Amanda’s mom was in Cairo, we were lucky to have dinner at Ms. Boni’s where she made us her version of Mac and Cheese and her famous carrot soup.

Having loved it so much, and having just bought our blender (!) we were excited to give it a whirl ourselves.

See this link for our pizza recipe:

Carrot Soup:

We hit up the veggie stand and got three potatoes and a kilo of carrots

-Peel carrots and one potato and chop into cubes

-Boil until all are soft

-Place in blender and gently puree

-Add one cup of hot water

-Add one bullion cube

-Add salt, pepper, a dash of curry powder, onion powder and cinnamon

-Serve piping hot in a big bowl.

The natural carrot taste is delightful, and the potato works to thicken up the soup. This needs very little seasoning and works as a great side dish or main course. I just bought some more carrots and am looking forward to making it again this weekend!
