How do you emphasize no flatware required for picnic food, especially if the question is asked on the state exam? You make the entire menu to help students recall that no utensils are required for eating the following menu: chicken tenders, oven fries, fresh vegetables with ranch dip and chocolate chip cookies.
Delicious. The trick according to Annie’s blog is allowing them to soak in hot water for 30 minutes. I prepped the first batch and the classes that followed prepped the next batch for the next class. It worked out well. We cut ours into shoe string size to bake quicker, about 25 minutes. Recipe is here.
When you forget the cherry tomatoes like the picture here, you improvise and tell your students to use one radish in the middle; it works like a charm.
Time to get the cookies in the oven, says Tae.

Last, but no least, are chocolate chip cookies. Wait I see peanut butter chips in these. It’s a twist the students asked for while using the Betty Crocker recipe here.
We studied the meal service styles including the informal buffet on Friday. I was hoping for nice weather to have our picnic outside, but it didn’t work out. Instead we had a picnic indoors and it was just fine with the kiddos.
Awesome picnic indoors, don’t you think?
