Log Cabin Epicurians
Happy President’s Day!
You might be wondering what the above photo has to do with POTUS Day, and if you are, blame it on your nursery school teacher. My mom manages 17 three year olds on a daily basis. And when I say manage I mean she sings with them, ties their shoes, leads circle time, helps them with crafts, feeds them snacks (NO PEANUTS!), and of course, teaches them. AKA – comes home with a headache every day.
Nursery school lessons are boiled down to the basics. (I won’t even get into the way they teach Thanksgiving.) Anyway, here is the tasty treat that the kiddies made to commemorate our very noble, very honest, very judicious country leaders.
And one note, every year dad gansie comes to my mom’s classroom to help out with this messiest and yummiest of crafts. I guess the children think my dad is the original G-Dubs.
Lincoln’s Log Cabin
Place a shoe box open side down and cover with aluminum foil.
(dad gansie and unidentified pre-schooler)
With a plastic knife spread vanilla icing on all sides of a pretzel log. Stick on shoe box.
Bonus points: create windows and doors with broken pieces of pretzel.
