Last month when students were delivering their very persuasive letters to Mrs. Kent she received one from Eben suggesting that smoothies be served, not just on Thursdays, but EVERYDAY! It's a great idea, in theory, but Mrs. Kent wasn't so sure how it would work out in practice. Making smoothies is a lot of work! Mrs. Kent invited Eben to come in and help her prepare the smoothies on Wednesday afternoon in order to have them ready for the 7:30 a.m. breakfast rush. After an hour of scooping, pouring, puréeing, blending, mixing, and tasting Eben realized the time and effort that goes into making these delicious smoothies and agreed that once a week was just right. Eben's Raspberry-Peach smoothies were a huge hit!
In go the puréed peaches.
Scraping the last bits of raspberry yogurt.
And a little skim milk...
Mrs. Kent and Kyle hand out sugar on snow to the RES pre-schoolers.
Finally, a vat of raspberry-peach smoothie for RES! Thanks for all of your help Eben!
And lastly, we had one more visit to make today for the sugar on snow celebration...Pre-school! Our pre-schoolers weren't in school on Tuesday when everyone else was celebrating so Mrs. Kent made sure they were included in the fun! Mrs. Kent even showed-off her skills by whipping up some maple sugar candy on the spot. It was pure magic, and deliciousness.
