One of my exploratory classes is FCS: Family and Consumer Science.
This is not a class that I am going to like.
Food usually grosses me out.
It’s slimy, like bananas, or yogurt.
I move away from people who are eating these foods at lunch.
Also, I don’t know anything about cooking, unless I can count waffles in a toaster oven or a soft pretzel in the microwave.
My teacher must have talked to Mr. Roy because she was really understanding.
She assigned me some nice seventh grade students to work with.
I was the dishwasher for our first project: pizza.
I could handle that.
The food in the sink was a little disgusting.
My dad says this at home too.
The second thing we made was applesauce puffs.
For this project, I only had to measure ingredients.
I was good at this because I’m great at math.
I tried some of the puff because there were no ingredients in it that I didn’t like or that I didn’t like together.
It was really good.
I brought some of this home for my mom to try, I was so proud of it.
It got a little smushed in my backpack on the way home, but still tasted good.
My teacher kept encouraging me to try new things.
One time, we learned about kale.
It’s the healthiest vegetable.
I don’t like many vegetables, but I thought I would try a kale chip.
It was good.
FCS class was really fun after all.
