Potatoes! Bread!

Caroline's social studies class has been studying immigration and as a bonus project the kids were allowed to bring in a cultural food from their own background. Since we have ancestors from all over, and no real ties to our ancestors' recipes, Caroline had to decide which country's food to use.

While France was a contender with its cheese and bread and crepes, nothing could compete with Ireland's potatoes! Caroline chose to make Irish Champ, which really is glorified mashed potatoes -the single most favored food in the house, and Irish Soda Bread. We'd never made it before, but after tasting it realized it tasted much like scones!

Caroline thought I should clarify that it was not a bonus at all, the food project was required. I just thought she might consider any day with mashed potatoes and bread to be a bonus day. I mean really, how often does she get to eat in Social Studies anyway?

So bonus or no bonus, she got to eat. And really, that's all that matters!
