Ssssummer Ssssquash

The Community Center was visited again by Angela and Raven with the Food Sense Program who taught an amazing Nutrition Cooking Class. This month’s featured vegetable was SQUASH, which we learned takes on many different faces. After learning the ins and outs of the squash family, Raven and Angela taught us how to make Zucchini Fries! Of course with the word “fries” in it, the kids were excited to get started. To see the simple yet tasty recipe for Zucchini Fries click HERE. While the fries were baking we played “Concentration” and were tested on our squash expertise. The kids showed how smart they were while looking for matches of summer, pattypan, crookneck, and other squashes. Pattypan? Yes, that’s a real squash. To end a great class we all ate the delicious AND healthy Zucchini Fries. French Fries, eat your heart out.
