What a great week it has been! Natalie (Carol's daughter), helped us make bags! We sewed them from start to finish as part a young women's project she is working on. I used 1970's fabric from Carol's drawer with colorful tropical flowers. I am very proud of the final project!
We have finished our Social Studies and Literacy courses this week! The most eventful part of class this week was when a pack of ducks randomly walked in. It was hilarious.
The most eventful part of life at Carol's this week was making Mexican food! We went to Pak N Save to buy as much Mexican ingredients that we could find. Turns out there is one little section with the basic Mexican ingredients. I made tortilla pie for our host family and they LOVED it! Watching them try refried beans for the first time was a real treat. When I opened the can of beans they had to leave the kitchen because they were so grossed out. Carol and Natalie were both willing to try a spoonful and didn't care for them at all. Now they can say they've tried it!
I tried Pavlova with Hokey Pokey ice cream today! Wow. Pavlova is a New Zealand dessert that can't truly be compared to anything else. Angel food cake is as close as it gets to comparing.
