Guest post by Natalie in Grade 2
For our last Living Wall project, Grade 2 planted herbs and cooked or baked with them. On Monday (5/6), Ms. Biale gave us a bunch of different recipes and each group used their herb as the main ingredient. We made lemon-verbena scones, peppermint lemonade, mini-pizzas with oregano, rosemary shortbread, and cucumber chive sandwiches. I was in the pizza group. Chopping up the oregano was pretty hard because we got the tomato sauce all over the place and it was slippery to cut. After the food was baked and cooked, we celebrated in our class by having a garden party and ate or drank everything we made. It was delicious! My favorite part was eating the food. From now on, I will make pizza at home with my oregano.
