Easter Meal

Students made an Easter Meal this week: most requested dishes, ham and carrot cake.

The store had a beautiful pork loin, so we made 2 types of pork loin: 1 with balsamic vinegar glaze and 1 with an orange/pineapple glaze.  

Students also made carrot cake, lime tea cookies, a strawberry/walnut salad with greens fresh from the greenhouse and rolls.
