Meatballs and Marinara Dinner

ingredients

Yep, I have another budding chef in the house! This past week we were able to take another online cooking class, but this time it was geared for kids ages 8+ .  Sandie from Mixing Bowl Academy had another yummy class planned—meatballs and marinara. A week before the class, we were sent an email with all the ingredients and tools needed.

Logging on was very easy to do. For this class, Sandie’s daughter helped show the kids how to make things along with Sandie.

This was my daughter’s first time cutting up onions, parsley and green peppers. We ran a little behind because this was a new skill (and my knives were dull—very dull), but were able to catch up. When we did fall behind, we were able to ask Sandie to slow down.

My daughters have enjoyed these online classes and I’m so glad we had the opportunity to try them. Sandie does a wonderful job planning and conducting the class. This is truly a great resource. I plan to utilize more of the classes in the future.

Jr. Chef Classes (ages 8+) at Currclick. All month-long classes are $30.00 and meet at 3pm Central Time.

February Class: "Sopita" with Beef, Homemade Soft Pretzels, Ratatouille w/ Giant Croutons, Tamal Bake

If you can’t make the live classes, Sandie has several pre-recorded classes available for purchase. I think the Apple Crisp w/ homemade whipped cream sounds yummy! I think I’ll pick up that class for my daughter so that I can reap the benefits—lol!

That sounds like a great class. $30 for a months worth of classes (?) sounds like a really great deal. Thanks for emailing me and following my blog at: familyliteracy. If you ever do book reviews I have a book review and giveaway linky each weekend. Feel free to link up.

Thanks! Tina "the Book Lady"
I would like to do a blog review next week on your Valentine's activities on Squidoo or would you like to do a guest post? Maybe you can get some customers that way or new followers. =D
