It is a well known fact that I haven’t a creative bone in my body. I can’t draw for toffee and anything arty just intimidates me because I just can’t do it. I even struggle with the paint your own pottery places because anything I do could be bettered by a five year old.
So here’s the thing. The school have thrown down a challenge and I need your help. The children have gone and got green-fingered and have successfully grown things in the school garden. So far the produce list looks like this:
- Red Onions
- Broad beans
Having grown this they teachers are obviously thinking “Now what?” and have passed the buck onto parents. They have devised a competition. Now I’ve read the rules over and over and nowhere does it say I can’t cheat which is why it’s perfectly acceptable for me to invite you to participate.
I (we) must create a starter and main course from the above ingredients using a maximum of five extra ingredients. We must write down our two course menu (with recipes) and supply a drawing of what our dishes would look like.
With enough Googling I might be able to find recipes but drawing them is way beyond my capabilities.
Anyway if you fancy having a go, please, please do. Recipes can be added as comments here and if you can submit a drawing then scanning and loading onto Picasa or Flickr with a link in comments below should work.
It may be worth pointing out here that there is no prize unless having your menu announced in assembly next Tuesday is a proud honour that you consider prize enough. Suggestions need to be added by Sunday evening to count.
I’m counting on you.
