Matariki Lunch

Working hard over two days we prepared our Matariki lunch.
We postponed our meal for a day due to staff absence.

The main dish was Matariki pork and vegetables from a recipe in the Sunday star times 7 June 2009, but also included foil baked potatoes, mashed potatoes and apple crumble in custard. Yum, all ready to be served, time for our karakia kai, which one would the children pick today?
"Whakapainga enei kai."Opening the potato parcels was like a special Matariki present.
It was different to have lunch with knife, fork and spoon.
Annalise's dad John and her sister Katie came and joined us and enjoyed the tasty flavours of our kai. Caleb wanted two helping, James thought it was delicious.

Isobel couldn't join us in person but skyped us instead from her aunty's house in Australia.

Sharon made rewena bread, but it wasn't quite ready, so we had it Friday with toasted cheese as a lunch time extra. We had to watch it rise filling with air like Kate's balloon and test it's springiness.


Yum!
