Lab days are exciting for the students. Who wouldn’t be excited? They are cooking breakfast for themselves and their friends. They serve it, sit down and enjoy it. Words cannot describe how proud they are to accomplish this task. Just setting the table is a work of art for some. Most of them eat in front of the TV or to my horror in their bedroom alone. So this is a great thing for them sitting down at a table with what I call a family. Ninety percent of them want to ask a teacher to eat with them and it is not just for the extra credit. It is to show the teacher what they can do. It is not just any teacher they invite. I have found that it is the caring teachers that really go out of their way to show how much they love their job of teaching high school students.
Preparing food — It does so much more than fuel our body. It fuels our soul!
With that said let’s get to the important stuff. Cast your vote this weekend for the best pancakes of the day. I know it is a hard choice this time. Good luck to all.
