Guides can cook (sort of)

Last night's Ready Steady, Cook challenge turned out to have been quite good fun. The Guides all used their ingredients to create some interesting concoctions. And the leaders got to join in and had a good time with our own creations.
We chose to make a selection of bruschetta with various toppings and also a melon boat thing for the centrepiece.
Team 1 of the Guides made a sharing platter that went on to become the eventual winner.
Team 2 made the most enormous sandwich and then tried to explain how it would be served. It was quite funny!
We did ask them, just before we judged the offerings, how many of them had washed their hands first (we didn't tell them to). Depressingly only about 4 of them had... Think we'll be doing some basic food hygiene with them next week.
I'm aiming to get them all up to date with their challenge badges and to start getting them thinking for themselves a bit more. I'm hoping that I may have instilled some initiative into them by the end of their time with us.
I think that's it for today. Been having a fairly lazy day so far...
