Class Feast!

My son’s kindergarten class had a Feast on Monday, sort of a warm-up to Thanksgiving if you will. Everyone brought something: I was carb girl. (and then some.)

My instructions were to bring authentic, traditional-like-the-pilgrims-had dishes, but for some reason this kept echoing through my head…..

Lightning McQueen: "Alright, Luigi, give me the best set of blackwalls you've got."
Luigi: "No! No, no, no. You don't know what you want. Luigi know what you want. Blackwall tires. They blend into the pavement. But a this... whitewall tires! They say, 'Look at me! Here I am! Love me.'"
Lightning: "Alright, you're the expert."
from the Disney/Pixar Film "Cars"

My slightly off the white-wall offerings were (and forgive the photos, I barely remembered to take any at all!):
(topped with buttery toasted pine nuts, mmmmmm....)

yes, I did scrub it and then soak it for 3 hours...
Apple Sage Cranberry Dressing
with fresh sage from my herb garden and apples from last weekend

Corn Pudding
(They totally snarfed this one up!)
and 10 Minute (homemade) Applesauce
(again, with fresh apples from the orchards - feel free to omit the brandy like I did here, but I've made it before with, and oooh, it's gooooooooood!)

Better than a Ferrari, eh? ;)

  1. Looks like a great feast. I bet the kids were thrilled.

  2. wow that all looks terrific! I miss those days. Now that my kids are in Jr. High all the fun stuff is done :(

  3. Oh, now THAT's a feast, alright! I bet the kids had a ball. And I'm so gratified to hear that you can actually bring homemade goodies to your kids' feasts. At my daughter's preschool, there's a new "only storebought food" rule (I guess a food safety issue?) and while I get that in theory, I can't help but feel like we've officially jumped the shark with that one. I mean, HOW did we ever survive our childhoods? Looks like you were a busy cook getting ready for this one! These all look great -- I'll be checking out the recipes for sure!

  4. What a feast! Looks like fun. So many tasty dishes to enjoy!!

  5. Wow! That's impressive!! Everything looks divine!!

  6. Oh yum! I wish I'd been there. It's a feast for a feast!

  7. Looks like a great feast - a really great feast!


  8. Wow, you worked hard for that class. I sure hope the kiddies tried each dish!

  9. What a great feast! I bet the kids had a blast. Now that my kids are grown, I really miss those kinds of events. Thanks for sharing!

  10. I would have fought people over the corn pudding.
