St Patrick's Day
Presenter: Nancy Schneider, PHEc
March brings St Patrick's Day and lots of fun. Let's make potato soup in a jar to share with all your want-to-be Irish friends. Using six simple ingredients you will make a mixture which can be stored in a jar. When you are ready for potato soup, just add boiling water, stir and enjoy.
To be fashionable when eating your soup, we will also learn how to make a rainbow necklace from cereal.
Both of these activities are child friendly, and great activities to do with your kids.
2 cups potato flakes
1 3/4 cups powdered milk
2 tbsp chicken or vegetable bouillon
2 tsp onion flakes or minced onion
2 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp dried thyme
Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
Place into a jar (use a funnel for fewer spills)
Attach instructions: add 1 cup of boiling water to 1/2 cup of mixture and stir. Add salt & pepper to taste.
