For the next two weeks, we’ll be learning all about New England. We’ll join the Foley family as they give us their spin on a traditional seafood bake. We’ll learn about the geography, topography, and early colonial history of this beautiful region.
For our first meal we’ll make traditional Classic New England Sloppy Joes. This is not to be confused with the sloppy joe you might get in New Jersey (The Jersey Sloppy Joe), which is beef tongue, ham, Swiss, cole slaw, and Russian dressing, layered between three long slices of rye bread.
Our second meal will be New England Style Baked Macaroni and Cheese. This is a dish consisting of several different cheeses and calls for a crusty top. It’s reminiscent of old Welsh Rarebit recipes. We tried the crusty top feature last year and it turned out soggy and gummy. We’ll probably skip it this go around. The flag below is the link to teacher materials and recipes.
