Christmas Dinner!

The children of Glenwood suggested we have Christmas dinner for snack so the children prepared and enjoyed a tasty meal of brussels sprouts, carrots, peas, mashed potato and sage and onion stuffing.

‘ We peeled the potatoes and the brussels sprouts.’ -Isabella and Rachel.

‘I had potatoes, peas and carrots. I love peas.’- Lucy

‘It was good.’- Eamon

‘I ate up all of the carrots and the potatoes and I ate one pea.’- James
