Feast Week Part 3: What’s For Dinner?

If you haven’t checked them out yet, be sure to read Part 1 and Part 2 of our Feast Week journey. 🙂  If you have, welcome back!

While we thought it would never actually arrive, December 17–the first day of Feast Week–finally came and we were ready to get started!  Our kiddos had done such an amazing job with all that they had to learn about fractions, and were now ready to apply that to a real-world situation.  They were super excited and very motivated.

Our class was responsible for appetizers.  While they were a little sad because they wanted to do dessert (everyone did, really!), they came with really great suggestions for what we could make for our portion of the meal.  Everyone came with family-favorite recipes from home, and we had some decisions to make about which we were going to use.  We got into our tribes to make these decisions, and narrowed the list down to these yummy choices:

The next step was to shop for ingredients.  Using the circulars from Schnucks and Dierbergs, tribes got busy finding ingredients and figuring out how much their recipe would cost using these directions:

As with everything they do, kiddos took on this job with much seriousness and concentration.  They had to feed 85 people after all!
