We had an amazing time on the third day of the Cloverbud cooking camp. The campers started their day by preparing a delicious meal consisting of breakfast casserole, fresh fruit with yogurt and granola, and cheese biscuits. We were also honored to have Mr. Blount Knowles, an Advisory member of the NC State Advisory Board, as a special guest.

The kids were divided into groups once more. The first group took care of cutting up the fresh fruit, which included strawberries, cantaloupes, raspberries, watermelons, and kiwis. They were given a refresher on how to handle a knife safely and the most effective techniques for slicing.

A group of individuals assisted in frying sausage for a breakfast casserole. They followed proper handling techniques for raw meat and washed their hands thoroughly. They also learned how to crack eggs into a separate bowl to ensure no shells made it into the mixture. After adding hash browns and sausage, they stirred the mixture and transferred it to a dish for cooking.

The third group of individuals assisted in preparing the cheese biscuits. Their task involved mixing all the necessary ingredients and kneading the dough. Afterwards, they portioned it out onto the baking sheets.

While the casserole and biscuits were cooking, we went outside and jumped rope, hula hooped and used the sidewalk chalk.

The campers were in for a treat when we surprised them by joining the Bertie County Library’s program,  the Amazing Teacher, from Steve Somers. As a magician, Mr. Somers has a simple yet important mission: to create and deliver assembly programs that encourage children to read. He captivated the audience with various magical tricks and invited some campers to join him on stage. Tucker the Turtle, a puppet, also entertained the crowd with jokes. Additionally, Mr. Somers introduced Hopper the rabbit, who has a sweet tooth for carrot ice cream. The children even had a chance to pet Hopper after the show. The kids thoroughly enjoyed watching the performance and had a great time.

Finally, we returned to the kitchen to have our meal. The breakfast casserole was exceptional, and the biscuits were equally delicious. It was delightful to see all the children relishing the yogurt and fruit.
