The Shake and Smoothie Contest

Shake and Smoothie

Members of the “Can Do” Street Chef’s Club held a shake and smoothie contest at the “Can Do” Street Community Center the other day.

Willie, Nellie, Maria, Bobby, and Arthur Jay got to be the judges. Grandma Hattie and Grandma Frances helped the “Can Do” Chefs Club members prepare those ingredients that required cutting up such as fruits and vegetables for each shake and smoothie.

It was a tough job…choosing a winner. Each of the judges had to drink a quarter of a cup of each shake or smoothie and there were 6 of them!

The “Can Do” Chefs Club Does Asian for International Day

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

The “Can Do” Chefs Club received an invitation from Miss Sue to make  lunch for the kindergarteners on International Day at the “Can Do” Street Community Center.

Miss Sue’s invitation read, “Please prepare a lunch that will be suitable for celebrating International Day.”

“Huh,” said Hector. “Wow, that’s hard, “said Nellie. Kathy just looked blank as she tried to think of something to make that would fit an International Day and that young kids would be willing to eat.

Then Yundi said,”I’ve got it,” said Yundi. “We make an Asian lunch. We serve sushi and teach the kids to use chopsticks.” The rest of the Chefs Club members just stared at him and Kathy said, “What little kid, that isn’t Asian, would eat raw fish?” everyone laughed, even Yundi.

Yundi said,”We won’t make sushi with fish. We’ll make peanut butter and jelly sushi rolls.” And that is just what they did!

Oh, the kindergarteners just loved it! Miss Sue was so pleased and all the parents were so impressed with what the “Can Do” Chefs Club members managed to do for International Day.

Why not be a “Can Do’ Chef and make your own peanut butter and jelly sushi rolls and serve them to your family?
