muffins and kale smoothies

Everyone loves muffins. This group harvested raspberries and baked them into yummy muffins. Each child, from first grade to 4th, had a direction to follow. They worked together to combine recipe ingredients and in less than an hour they were munching on warm muffins. (Click on recipe below.)

We added a beverage for our snack: kale smoothies. Kale, number one nutritious veggie, is easy to disguise in a smoothie. More about smoothies, next week, when we make them again and turn them into frozen popsicles. Our kale is doing just fine in the garden and it will be there for us right through October.
