FCS – Family and Consumer Science
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.
Also, I don’t know anything about cooking, unless you 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, 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.
