Field to Feast: Chop it, Cook it, Wrap it!

In this trimester's Field to Feast after school club, our theme is Chop it, Cook it, Wrap it!  Students will be learning various chopping and cooking skills and preparing healthy dishes all within the theme of "wraps".  Just think about it...there are SO many things that are fun to eat that are wrapped up: sushi, enchiladas (with made from scratch tortillas, of course), egg rolls, crepes, hand pies, and so much more!

This week we learned how to cut our vegetables into "matchsticks" to prepare the filling for Thai Noodle Lettuce Wraps.  This takes a lot of knife control and caution and the kiddos did amazingly well. Kids piled their lettuce wraps high with fillings and smothered them with peanut sauce. Delicious!
