New position, new school, new list of bloggable projects ;)

So, as you may already know, I started this new job with a private day high-school back a few weeks ago. I'm really looking forward to sharing my knowledge and passion for food with everyone. My new staff is just awesome and I recieved a very warm welcome from all the faculty and students.

Just so happens, this month is Native American Indian Heritage Month. It's a great way to, not only, introduce the students to a fun and exciting new food, but also a great chance to educate them about a topic they may not know much about.

So, that being said, I decided to set up a little Fry Bread Taco station in the corner of the servery, put up some nice educational posters, make an authentic recipe given to us from the Rose Bud Tribe that a teacher just happen to have laying around and start handing food out. The schools percussion section of the music department put together an AWESOME tribal drum demonstration in the middle of both lunch periods. Wow, was that fun! It was a learning experience for all involved.
