I've received notes asking what the salad is...
It's the salad that is my family's favorite. It's called MIchigan Traverse City salad...Enjoy :-)
Start with Baby Greens--sliced strawberries and blue cheese crumbles are a must.
Add...your choice of cut up apples, walnuts or pecans, (I like the sugared nuts--but plain is fine) cucumbers, yellow or red pepper slices (like the green but sweeter and more colorful). I also add dried cherries or cranberries.
The dressing used is Rasberry--Gerard's is the best with this!
English muffin halves, grated cheese, cooked sausage or crumbled bacon

FRIENDSHIP SOUP! Hot-hearty and healthy for cold days!!!
Great for after school programs or cooking club...Think about making a big pot of soup in a crock pot. You can start it in the morning program and let it go on low during the day.
Have kids sign up to bring potatoes, small onion, carrots, celery, cans of beef broth, can of diced tomatoes, seasoning, crackers or rolls, etc.
* Each child would only have to bring a single item to make a huge pot.
* If your program isn’t too large---canned soup heated is also good!

CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE CHILDREN’S SOUL
From Tasha Palmer- Vista, California
I boil some chicken off the bone or purchase the chicken in a can at Sam's Club. Chop some potatoes; throw in a can of green beans, corn, and tomato sauce. I also add some chicken broth. Simmer until done. (This is faster with the canned chicken) Serve in small cups with some saltine crackers.
(I made this for my 2, 3, 4 year old classes-Older mixed groups will also like it!).
This one is fun for a autumn or winter breakfast party, cooking club or wilderness/camping theme!
SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT! OMELET IN A BAG
Crack two eggs (only two) into a large resealable freezer bag. Make sure bag is high quality!
Press out most of the air, and seal.
Shake or squeeze to beat the eggs.
Provided different types of filling ingredients and let each student "customize" his/her individual omelet. Open the bag, and have kids add ham, cheese, onion, green pepper, tomato, salsa, and mushrooms.
Squeeze out as much of the air as you can, and seal the bag. Be sure to use a quart-size freezer bag--those without the zipper pulls work best.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Place up to 8 bags at a time into the boiling water. Cook/simmer for exactly 13 minutes. Open the bag, and let the omelet roll out onto a plate. The omelet should roll out easily. Kids love this one!!! And it's something they can do mostly on their own...(Image by KidActivities.net)
Note: When we made these eggs-we used two eggs that were not very large. We added a strip of cut up red pepper, some salt and pepper and a small handful of shredded cheese. We only made the one bag and followed directions exactly. Next time we make these, the eggs would be larger or we would simmer the eggs for about 12.5 minutes instead of the 13 minutes. The consistency is firmer than an omlet...but stll tasted good. The egg slid out of the bag like magic!
