Learning and appreciating where our food comes from is a key point Kristina and our Celebrity Chefs repeat. A Hearty Chicken Noodle Soup made from scratch with chef Joanna showed KEYS how to make your own broth and discussed a variety of ingredients that could be used in soup. Chicken Caesar Salad with KEYS’ own anchovy dressing and croutons didn’t scare anyone from enjoying the salad. Homemade chocolate ice cream was a delicious treat from chef Monica – all plates were licked clean.
Learning about plants and what they need to grow was a great workshop taught to KEYS by Terri and Ron from the Toronto and Parkdale Horticultural Societies. They brought earth, buckets, petunias and pumpkin seeds for everyone to dig in and have fun.
Learning to express feelings through Art with Alex – KEYS participants decorated a quilt with words and thoughts on how they would like to be supported when they felt like they were in need. A KEYS’ talking stick was painted to be used as a listening tool so that all KEYS’ participants listen with respect to whomever is holding the talking stick.
Learning to take good care of our teeth to have healthy smiles – The Dental Hygieniuses Natalie and Joanne came with their brushes, big teeth and floss to teach us the dental “jiggle wiggle” to best clean our teeth..and even to brush our tongues.
KEYS now looks forward to July and August with themed Lunch ‘ n Learn cooking and excursions in and around our great community. A fun and safe summer is wished for all with great stories to share in September!
