Two Weeks in The United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland)


For the last two weeks before Christmas break we turn our eyes to the United Kingdom.  We’ll take some virtual tours, learn about life in British Isles of the past, and life in the modern United Kingdom.  We’ll try some recipes that we hope are authentic to the region.  Our first week we’ll be making Toad in the Hole.  We’ve made this every year and the kids and staff have always enjoyed it.  For our second week we’ll try our hand at making Gingerbread Men.  We ordinarily avoid sugary treats but this close to Christmas we couldn’t resist.   We’ll decorate our guys with frosting, red cinnamon drops, and whatever confections seem good.  Yowza!
