In McKee class we had a go at making mashed potato. This is how we did it.....
|We peeled the potatoes|
|We cut them into bits and cooked them|
|We added butter and milk and mashed them|
|We added some colour (not flavour) to half of the mash|
|We ate them|
We made a tick chart to see how many children chose each bowl. Seven of us chose to eat green mash and fourteen chose the normal colour. Some of our comments....
The green tasted like apples, because apples are green - M.
The green was not good for me it made my tummy ache - O.
I chose green and it was yucky - R.
Green was tasty, mmmmmm - A.
I want normal because I like it at home and I don't like green food - D
I make this at home with mummy. She said mine is the best! - H
After this the children were able to eat up the rest of the potato and there were quite a few complaints that there was not enough and they wanted more!
