For our weekly Cooking Day this week, we made deviled eggs. The process is a lot of fun and uses some wonderful Montessori practical life skills...
First the kids peeled the hard-boiled eggs:
They surprised me by doing such a wonderful job with the egg-peeling. Then I cut the eggs in two and asked them to take the yolks out (this was a good opportunity to talk about the parts of an egg):
The next step was mashing the yolk with some mayonnaise:
Then they scooped the filling back into the 'boats', and topped with olives:
Here is L's final result:
OK, so I won't be hiring the kids to cater my next party anytime soon, but they had a really good time making these. L tried the deviled eggs and declared that they were 'yucky', so my secret plan of getting them to eat eggs failed miserably. I ended up splitting what was left with the dogs, who had no complaints at all.
