Homeschooling Fun with Food: Guacamole Flower

My 8 year old is notorious for not trying new foods, every.  For a month he once lived on whole wheat pancakes, which I snuck Soy Protein powder into.  When he was 3 he loved to watch me cook so I would give him a pile of flour and a cup of water on the table to play with and make goo.  Now that he is older he wants to actually cook for the family, so I decided why not add his love for hands on learning (and mashing things) with something easy to make – Guacamole.guacamole

We used:

  • 2 small avocados
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 plum tomatoes
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1/2 small onion
  • and Longboard Chips from TJ’s

I did all of the chopping as seen in our cooking video – which was the highlight of the whole process for him.  He wants to be on TV more than anything and would love to have a cooking show.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5A0LB3Bfy88&feature=share&list=UU8sgRwhceJ3MX69XoBVqFqA
