Our fourth week and we have yet to find something that our students don't enjoy eating!! This week we cooked:
Mediterranean vegetables stuffed with spicy rice
Beetroot pasta with herb sauce
Pizza of the imagination
Apple Crumble with low fat Natural Yoghurt

|Jo cutting the pizza|
|Jo was very proud of his pizza|
The stuffed vegetables included zucchini, squash, tomatoes and pumpkin and all were thoroughly enjoyed. The beetroot pasta was fun - a great colour (until it was cooked!) and of course provided an opportunity to use the ever popular pasta machine. We had some lovely flowers to add to our leafy salads this week. Pizza and apple crumble enjoyed too of course.
In the garden we have been busy building scarecrows – our latest is a lady who we have called ‘Libby’ – a very glamorous lady with long eyelashes and painted nails!!
|Stevan harvested some peas|
|Ellen did a fantastic job cleaning our the trailer|
|Cameron did some mulching with Regina|
|Riley moved compost from one bay to another|
|Our new scarecrow|
We have planted pak choy, mizuna, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, beetroot, pea and onion seedlings and broad bean seeds.
We were very excited to see that our garlic is sprouting already and some of the broccoli that we planted a few weeks ago has started to flower!
Our menus for the last four weeks have been similar so that all students could take a turn at each type of dish, after Easter we will start a new five week rotation and have a slight change of styles.
