Bread with Mrs Tuipulotu

First day back, surprisingly we had Food Tech again. My class will most likely end up changing options later on in the term. But anyways, today we made, "Plain Bread." It's actually not as easy as I thought it was going to be. For when mixing the yeast, if you put it in water that is too will not cook which means that the bread won't rise. But if you put it in water that is too will overcook and the bread still won't rise. The temperature of the water must be just right. But, hopefully our bread tastes as good as it looks :)

Instructions below...

"Plain Bread"
(Preheat oven to 180 degrees)
Step 1 - (Mix well) 1 c of hot water, 1 c of cold water with 1 packet of yeast
Step 2 - Add 2 c of plain flour
- 1 tsp of salt
- 2 TBSP of sugar
- 1/2 c of oil
Step 3 - Mix well and leave for 20 mins before bake at 180 degrees
Step 4 - Serve with spread (Optional) and enjoy!!

Macaroni & Cheese with Mrs Tuipulotu

Today, I arrived late to first period...but to my surprise, we were making, "Macaroni & Cheese!" My group had just started cooking which meant that I had time to help out as well. Who knew cooking Mac & Cheese could be quite fun! There are 2 seperate things you need to make when cooking Mac & Cheese. You need to cook the macaroni but you also need to make the white sauce to go along with it. As you can see, the picture on the right is the end result our my groups, Macaroni & Cheese. Hopefully it tastes as good as it looks :)

Step 2 - White Sauce

- Add 1/2 c of plain flour and stir for 5 mins
