Its always a fun time when you get to go hang out with your kids at school.
J's class has been studying Native Americans and they thought it would be fun and interesting to host their own potlatch.
So, some time ago, he brought home a little cookbook that was filled with all kinds of Native American recipes. The item he chose to bring was called Honey Corn Cakes.
Here. Take a peek.
I got out my trusty griddle and began heating it up.
All the while I mixed all the ingredients.
Dont they look yummy?
I lined my dish with some parchment paper in hopes that the little cakes wouldnt stick.
Fill her up.
I got them all cooked and and transferred them to my little heated portable thingie and headed out to the school.
A festive little table with all kinds of good things lined up to try.
So happy to see me! (please note that hes the only one with stuff strewn all over his space)
Tasting a salmon cake. While this picture is not very convincing, I can honestly say that he really liked those salmon cakes.
Which is why he is in line again...for the third time....
And when the teacher went around the room and asked everyone what their favorite item was, J, devoted to his salmon cake at this point, of course, said the salmon cakes. But it didnt end there. He then went on to say that he wasnt surprised at all that he liked the salmon cake, because he really enjoys fish. However, he doesnt see the opportunity arising to have them again anytime soon because his dad had a bad experience with salmon when he was growing up.
See, the story, as I know it was that when S was younger salmon patties were cooked at his house only when his dad(J's grandpa) had gotten in "trouble". Those were the nights that his mom(J's grandma) decided that salmon patties were in order. And evidently S didnt like the salmon patties either. And he carries this story with him to this day.... But clearly, this story didnt have a negative impact on J!
A fun time was had by all and as you can see....everyone loved the Honey Corn Cakes.
