My troop visited a local farmer's market in Grapevine, TX. (CLICK HERE for website) Prior to the visit we had a discussion about organic foods. I posed several questions:
What does organic mean?
Why choose organic?
What are the advantages to organic?
What are the disadvantages to buying organic foods?
Why would shopping at a farmer's market include organic foods?
What are the benefits of shopping at a local farmer's market?
Here are the resource links I used to help answers these questions:
- Difference Between Pico de Gallo vs Salsa
Our Shopping List Included:
- 2 large tomatos
- 1 fresh garlic clove
- cilantro bunch
- juice of 1 lime
- 7 avocados
- Chachere's Creole Seasoning
- 2 dozen fresh eggs
- fresh bacon
- carton of mushrooms
- cheddar cheese curds
- used guacamole items as well to stuff our omelettes
The girls really enjoyed this badge and loved all the foods they made with freshly grown produce, eggs and bacon from local farmers. Plus, they now know how to make 2 useful meals in college :-)
I have included the recipes:
Pico de Gallo - 1 tomato, half of an onion, garlic, cilantro chopped
Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning
lime juice to prevent browning (or store in air tight container and fill with water to prevent air from touching guacamole, drain water before serving in the future - will store 3xs longer this way)
Spray baggy with Pam.
Crack 2-3 eggs into a baggy
Add optional ingredients: bacon, onions, cheese, mushrooms,
spinach, tomato... be creative
Use spices if you want more flavor
Cook sealed baggy in a full pot of boiling water for 15 minutes. 7. Slide onto a paper plate and enjoy!Clean up is a breeze. Great for sleepovers and Camp Outs!
