Clark Prep's ESYNOLA Food Science class took a field trip to Circle Foods on Wednesday! This week, the class was working on family meal planning on a budget. With that in mind, Chef Educator Callie decided to create a fun challenge for her students.
The challenge was to create a healthy and cheap meal using ONLY ten dollars. They were required to use at least four of the five food groups, and to create their own recipes. While ten dollars may not seem like much for a family meal, once they got to Circle Foods, each group was successful in keeping their meal under $10!
One group chose to make cheesy rice with chicken and broccoli, one made homemade chicken, spinach and cheese hot pockets, and the last group made homemade mac and cheese with broccoli AND homemade applesauce.
Congrats to our Junior Chef groups Donyall and Slyvanus, Jerome, Daryelle, and Rodney, and Damar and Ronica on making excellent, budget-conscious meals. We'll certainly be coming to your restaurants when you open them!
