Happy National Cheese Soufflé Day! To celebrate, we made zucchini cheese soufflé inspired by Mark Bittman's NYT recipe. It's savory, cheesy and absolutely decadent. It melts in your mouth and is super delicious. The older kids also made chocolate soufflé!
We had story time while the soufflés baked!

We had our last Farmer's Market class of the spring season. The kids made delicious breakfast tacos with homemade tortillas filled with scrambled eggs, roasted carrots, potatoes and beets. To compliment the tacos, the kids also made, smoothies, beet greens chips (sort of like kale chips) and strawberry crumble! Our next Farmer's Market class will be in the Fall.
In our after school classes, we made mole tofu with elote (corn on the cob). Mole is a savory sauce made with chocolate that can be found in burritos, enchiladas etc. Depending on where you go, each mole sauce can be very different. I forgot to take photos though :-(
Today we had a garden salad class with the preK! They harvested lettuce from the garden. In the kitchen, they chopped up apples, mangoes, bell peppers, carrots and cucumbers to add to the greens. They also made crispy tofu croutons and homemade herby vinaigrette!
We had a great pop up day camp on Friday!! We made burritos, chips and horchata. We read stories, played with veggie puppets, made play dough, has a dance party and played on the playground! It was a blast. We only remembered to take photos while the kids were eating lunch :-)
If you're looking for child care during a school holiday or parent teacher conferences, let us know and if we are available we will set up a pop up day camp for your child and friends!
Things we tried for the first time this week:
- Making corn tortillas from scratch
- Using beets to make a bright pink salsa
- Sour orangeade
Our focus this week was on Enchiladas, a saucy dish that is a combination of a taco and a burrito. We got to blend up cilantro, garlic, and olive oil to make a sort of chimichurri, we smashed avocados to make guacamole, and we juiced oranges (picked from the tree in our garden!) to make a tangy refreshing drink. Our kitchen was warmed by smiling faces and our bellies were full of beans and melted cheese.
