Makin' a Wreck With the Girls' Home Ec

     Okay, they didn't really make a wreck.  They made a delicious meal and they cleaned everything up really well.  Here is one student's version which she wrote for an English assignment.

     On Friday, October 10th at 12:00 noon at Lott Mennonite School, the home economics class girls: Diana, Jerilyn, Lexi, Katie, Mary, Vangie, Dorothy, and Audrey, fixed lunch for the whole school.  It turned out well.  Mr. Swanson said, “It was amazing.”

     The meal was barbeque chicken, roasted potatoes, salad, and Candy Corn jello cups.  The best foods, according to Mr. Swanson and Logan Helmuth, were the chicken and potatoes, although the potatoes were a little cold.  I think the girls were very pleased when people thanked them and told them how good it was.
     Why did they do it?  Well, Logan Helmuth said something about that that made me laugh out loud.  He told me, “They did it because they needed experience.”   Another person told me it was a good idea, and that they did it for a grade.  Overall it was a wonderful meal, and I think the school really enjoyed it.
