For our Veteran's Day menu, we decided on a child-friendly classic- homemade chicken noodle soup!
The children took turns using the pasta maker to turn their little balls of fresh pasta dough into long, thin noodles.
Then the children took to carefully separating each pasta strand
and hanging them on the rack to dry.
All day, the delicious aroma of garlic, onions, and herbs wafter through the school. At lunch time, the children crowded around the lunch tables, to receive their reward of fragrant, steaming bowls of homemade soup.
Unfortunately, the batteries on the classroom camera ran out before lunch time, but the children absolutely adored the soup. They happily slurped the homemade noodles, picked out their favorite tasty bits, and drank the savory broth. Many of the children had three bowls of soup and by the time lunch was finished, the soup pot was completely empty!
Not surprisingly, many of the children asked if we could make soup again tomorrow. Perhaps, we will need to add a monthly soup making day to our menu!
