It’s spring break. Honestly, I was dreading this. I still am. A break from school is NEVER good. Unless you’re the child, which I’m not. I’m the mom. I don’t like breaks from school. I know I’m not the only one, admit it. You don’t like it either. I can see it. Ok, maybe I can’t, but you know I’m right 🙂
What to do to keep these two dudes from completely destroying my house? Make them do something. So I came up with this idea to make food from different countries. I pull out a world map and let them pick a country. Big dude picks ‘the oraaaaaaange ooooooone!!!’ which is Russia. Totally fine with me, the russians make some delicious stuff. Then off to Mr Google to find out about the russian cuisine and what’s a traditional thing to bake. Because big dude wants to bake something. We find vatrushka. With cheese. We have a winner 🙂
Here’s the thing, this is not only to keep them busy. I find it very important to educate children about food and cultures. What better way than actually making it? I’m trying to prevent them from fast food overdosing or quite frankly, I’m preventing them from touching it and liking it.
You can find the recipe and some more russian deliciousness right here 🙂
And yes, they were delicious! You should make some. Somehow it didn’t keep them from destroying my house though…
