India Week Day 3: Naan For You

This morning we began our day in the garden helping the gardeners harvest! We harvested raspberries, apricots, LOTS of green beans, and some fresh herbs. We spent some time with the chickens and got to feed them some old apricots that had fallen off of the trees. We even discovered that one of the hens had laid an egg (a rarity now that they are getting older). We had a long nutrition education session where the campers learned about the different vitamins and what foods they are in and how they specifically are beneficial to your body. We also learned about skin cancer and the importance of sun screen. Do you guys remember the ABC’s of checking a mole!?

We stayed in the garden for the rest of the morning grilling Tandoori Chicken, making Mint Raita, and Indian Carrot Salad. We rolled out and baked the Naan dough we made yesterday in the stone oven we have down in the garden. Even though preparing food down in the garden was a little bit of a challenge, lunch was served down there and we all enjoyed the picnic outside.

Afterwards, we played a game of “Mother May I Cross the Bridge??” for physical activity and headed back inside and up to the kitchens for the remainder of the afternoon.

In the kitchen this afternoon, we all felt a lot better after spending the first half of the day in the humidity…AHHH AIR CONDITIONING 🙂 and cooked a couple more recipes before the end of the day. We made a Roasted Cauliflower Salad and Coconut Burfi which called for almonds but since a couple of campers are allergic, we took the time to teach a little about what allergies are and why it’s so important to take extra care when cooking around others with allergies. The end of the day came quickly since we stayed so busy all day! Don’t forget your swimsuits tomorrow, everyone, we’re going to the POOL!
