My troop visited our Local Hy-Vee and had a class with their dietician. We made so many wonderful things while we learned a few new cooking skills! This let my troop earn their Simple Meals Patch in Girl Scouts.
First we made cupcakes – from scratch! They turned out lighter and fluffier than anything I have ever made from a boxed mix and were super easy to make.
While there were in the oven, we pan fried eggs and made breakfast sandwiches. It’s a good thing my mom is our troop leader, she was treated to mine as I am not a big fan of fried eggs. Or ham.
Next was quesadillas, and we all picked our own ingredients to melt in our whole wheat tortillas.
Then a one pot meal which none of us was super fond of: I think it was the quinoa. It was like a Mexican rice dish.
While that was wrapping up we made a quick buttercream frosting and decorated our own cupcakes.
It was a ton of fun, the dietician was super nice and we learned a lot!
