Today we made "red sauce" to go with homemade pasta the children created yesterday.
At morning meeting Melanie showed the pasta and an onion and talked about the various steps of the process:
First, we chopped the onion (supervised closely by teachers)...
We found out chopping onions irritates the eyes...!
We opened the tomatoes and mashed them:
Ellie was a champion tomato squeezer....good thing too since Palmer wasn't interested and Cannon didn't love it.
Then it was time to head down to the church kitchen.
We sautéed the onion and some garlic in oil:
We added the tomato sauce and some spices:
We boiled the noodles and drained them:
We conducted a classic test to ensure the pasta was cooked properly:
And then we FINALLY got to eat it for snack:
Then we shared the leftovers with the Tucker Room:
IT WAS SUCH A FUN DAY!!!!!
