This morning after arriving at SLU, we immediately piled into vans and took a little road trip out to Wentzville to a local farm known as “Kraut Run,” a small organic farm in St. Charles County. Here the kids got a taste of what it means to grow your own food and to care for various types of livestock. The campers weeded and harvested garlic for the farm owners and even got to feed their pigs!! And who could forget that they each got a chance to play with the farm protector and adorable dog Morgan! Despite the heat, everyone had a great time touring the farm and learning about organic farming.
Upon returning to SLU, the kids relaxed with a nice lunch and then headed back outdoors for some physical activity. Afterwards, we once again headed inside and up to our home court- the food lab. There we began a recipe for Naan (Indian Style Flat Bread) and Channa Salad (Garbanzo Bean Salad). The Naan recipe will get finished tomorrow when we roll out and cut the dough. While waiting for the Naan dough to finish rising, we made dog biscuits and tidied up the kitchen for another exciting day of culinary creativity tomorrow 🙂
