Food, Tours and Snow!

Last week we had our first snow day! :-O
We had a lot of ice, but it was good because it gave us more time to study!

In addition to a time honored Wisconsin tradition of a snow day, we got to visit the magnificent Wisconsin State Capital. Then we had lunch at a new Madison restaurant for Restaurant week!

To say that it was a very Madison week would be an understatement.

Check back to see what we are cooking up this week :)!

Traditional Chinese Dumplings in a modern space

Yesterday, we learned how to make traditional Chinese dumplings. One of our students taught us how to make this delicious Chinese meal. Although we don't have measurements for the ingredients, we sure have full and happy bellies.

Some students were better at wrapping the dumplings than others. One student from Korea taught us how to fold the dumplings Korean style. Another student folded them Colombian style. They all tasted delicious and mostly looked the same after they were cooked.

In our pictures, you will see all of the ingredients, the students folding and then enjoying!

Updates since December

Now that the "holidays" are over... we are ready to start posting again.

In December, right before Christmas, we had some fun making delicious sugar cookies and tea cookies dipped in chocolate. The students also got to meet one of the teachers' dogs. Fun was had by all and cookies were eaten, decorated and enjoyed by everyone!

In January, after we rang in the New Year, we started a new session!!
We have some amazing new students! They are from far and wide. We are excited to have them and can't wait for them to improve their English and do some fun activities. To start our session, we learned a little about our director's culture of Thailand, by eating some delicious Thai food.

We hope you will stay tuned to find out what we are doing next week!
