are we ready for life on the prairie?

Last week Stephanie's class read a story about making pies. So her teacher decided to have the kids make sour dough starter. This week the starter was ready to bake. Stephanie was the designated kneader in her group. She stayed in a few minutes at recess to finish the job.

This girl really loves to cook. She keeps telling me she wants to be a chef when she grows up. She's stuck with that plan (alternating with being a teacher) since she was in kindergarten. 

The class made enough bread that each kid took home a mini loaf. She munched on it continuously after school, then shared the dregs of it with us that evening. It was pretty good.
