Brownie Snacks Badge Package

Junior Simple Meals Badge Package

Two parts: 2 hours each

Cooking is a lot of fun!  To keep it that way, we have to be safe and clean in the kitchen.  We’ll discuss cleanliness and safety which we’ll then practice as we cook together!  We’re making an egg dish, an international sandwich, a unique dessert, and a salad meal!

Sharing a meal is the one of the best ways to truly connect with people no matter who they are

Senior Locavore Badge Package*

“Going local” is more than a buzzword.  It’s a complex issue with benefits & challenges. We’ll define what going local means and how that definition can be fluid due to globalization, where people live, and climate change.  We’ll compile a list of local food sources like farmers markets, sustainable eating guides, and Community Supported Agriculture (CSAs). Then, we’ll make a simple dish & an Italian dessert from local ingredients.  Finally, we’ll challenge ourselves by preparing a local meal with a twist!

Ambassador Dinner Party Badge Package*

Two parts: 2-1/2 hours each

$20 per person

When planning a menu, it’s important to consider: who will be eating; if the textures & flavors

are balanced; and the total cost.  We’ll then design a meal for our dinner party.  

 

While hosting an online dinner party can be challenging, each girl will be in charge of

making one part of the dinner.  She must shop for and prepare her dish beforehand,

share the recipe (if it does not come from me), and talk about her dish.  

She must decorate and set the table, showing both on camera.  And of course, clean up!

Then, we’ll have an honest discussion about the dinner party: what went well,

what could’ve gone better, and how much personal effort we put into the party.

*When you register for this package, make sure you register

for BOTH Ambassador Dinner Party Badge Package, Parts 1 & 2. 

Both parts MUST be completed to fulfill the badge requirements.*

*Completion of the Senior Locavore & Ambassador Dinner Party Badge Packages

fulfills the requirements of Activities 2 & 5 of the Senior Sow What? Journey Award!
