Steps

1. To make without alcohol: Place first six ingredients into a glass container; cover and refrigerate overnight.

2. To make with alcohol: Add orange liqueur and lime-flavored vodka to the refrigerated mixture.

3. For each serving, to order: When ready to serve, pour into an ice-filled pitcher to two-thirds full. Add fresh sliced fruits and top with lemon-lime soda or Prosecco; stir gently. Serve over ice in wine glasses, garnished with mint sprigs and fresh fruit.

vote buttons pins

On every other Thursday of our four-week cycle menu, we allow K-8 students to pick the entree choices. The media center specialist for each of the participating schools sets up the list of entree items on a computer for voting, and the winning entrees are given to cafeteria managers two weeks before the upcoming month to put into production.

If I do end up using it, I will display the resident’s name and what the produce was next to the dish on the menu.

Curriculum for the mobile teaching kitchen centers around a single kid-friendly recipe, using ingredients that can provide talking points for nutrition, sustainability and food origins. “The recipe is the lesson,” Saidel says. “Every ingredient is an opportunity to talk.”

Earlier this year, Saidel, Perkins and Harvey did a student demo featuring roasted chicken and white bean tacos with greens and citrus salsa. “We can say, ‘Why are we using chicken instead of beef? Why are there some beans in here?’ You can talk about plant proteins and the sustainability and health message around...
