In the run up to Chinese New Year we entered into the spirit of things with some oriental cooking. Szechuan Chilli Chicken and Egg Fried Rice even incorporating carrots and cucumber from our Food Dudes programme and everyone had a go with chopsticks. Nice one guys.
Sadly rain prevented us going to town on our weekly visit...so town came to us.
Brian was the librarian, Charlie was the postmaster and Karolina and Amanda ran the cafe where we celebrated Lucy's birthday.
Chilli con carne and boiled rice resulted in our first casualty of the year as Karolina suffered a puncture wound to the thumb. Never mind the pain, how's she gonna use her phone now?!?! We also used some fresh flat leaf and curly parsley from our herb patch. Easy on the chilli it was enjoyed by all.
TACPAC Tuesday is getting busier so we were delighted to have former pupil and student teacher Kate McCarthy to help us out
In a moment of madness Mr. Boys agreed to take part in I'm A Celeb Get Me Out Of Here. See the Latest News Blog for more information.
For our first cookery of the New Year we jointed a chicken and then used the whole bird to make a vat of coconut chicken curry. We shouldn't need to cook again this year!
To round off our cooking for the year Gemma helped us to make Christmas Cookies, which were then seriously over-decorated.
We had a lovely Christmas Mass in Sonas. Thanks to all who came including Father Heinhold and Santa!
