This is the first full week of school. I am so excited. That is just crazy! After 30 years- Did I just type that? – It will be just another day, but NO. 56 high school students are walking through my classroom door every day hoping that it will be a fun class. Most days it will but after all it is school. We will use a textbook and take tests. They will have fun though, they will learn how to COOK!!! Better yet they are going to EAT. SOOO I have a captive audience, they will eat ANYTHING that I put before them . Most of them do not eat breakfast. They are starving.
Just so you will know I am no culinary expert. I am just a Nutrition and Wellness teacher that loves to teach and loves to cook. With that said let’s start with something easy for breakfast.
Yogurt Fruit Parfaits – YUMMY
My first experience with these cute little things was in PC (Panama City, Fla). GI Joe and I were attending a destination wedding for one of my best friend’s daughter’s wedding. The morning of the wedding we had breakfast at the Bay Point Marriott restaurant where we were staying . The Parfait was a feast for your eyes as well as scrumptious to eat. As most hotels, the cost was HIGH. I am so cheap in some ways. As a Family and Consumer Science Teacher aka. Home Economics teacher anything that you can
make at home and buy elsewhere is HIGH!! When we returned home I started making some of those high priced PARFAITS. They are sooo easy and sooo good. Here ya go.
Use any fruits that are in season ( or Frozen) for example blueberries and peaches or strawberries and bananas
Layer in a pretty glass. PAY ATTENTION TO SERVING SIZE Read the labels and do not use your eyes as a guide. Until you get a feel for serving sizes USE measuring cups. You will be surprised.
That’s it for today!
