My daughter’s super awesome 2nd grade teacher, Mrs. Ryan, sent out the following Facebook message to families this week:
Parents were quick to reply! Zoë and her classmates will be treated to a fantastic celebration of food and the pioneering spirit tomorrow! The menu will include rabbit stew, hominy, corn muffins, whipped cream (churned to butter with luck and strong arms), mashed potatoes, muffins, maple syrup, vinegar pie and biscuits.
I offered to make the biscuits, and here they are. Some are austere and plain, but I added a little Michigan decadence to others — dried Montmorency cherries!
Happy Birthday Laura Ingalls Wilder!

It’s wonderful to see schools celebrating literary and historical figures in this way. Hopefully you’ll have an opportunity to post a story on all the fun that was had!
What a fun way to celebrate! I have made butter from whipping cream many times in the Girl Scouts and it really isn’t that hard.
