The group found this recipe and thought it would be perfect for a warm summers day.
Today the group wanted to make Prawn cocktail. When looking at recipes we saw a few using avocado and the group really liked this idea.
We did some research and found that avocado is a really good source of potassium and lots of vitamins.
Everyone really liked the idea of putting the prawn cocktail in the avocado, so the avocado became the bowl!
The group agreed that the flavours worked well and made for a fresh, light starter.
The group found a recipe for light and fluffy blueberry cakes. To make twelve of these you need:
1Tbsp of granulated sugar
225g self raising flour
85g Caster Sugar
1 medium egg (beaten).
First we washed the blueberries and mixed in a bowl with the granulated sugar.
Then for the cake we put the flour in the bowl and rubbed the butter in- like you would for a crumble topping.
We then added the caster sugar and mixed.
Afterwards we made a well in the mix and added the egg. We then mixed until the ingredients became a dough.
We then divided the dough into twelve to roll into balls and put a few blueberries on top.
This week the group made burgers from scratch.
We spoke about how making food from scratch is much better than eating processed food. The group noted that if you make food from scratch you know exactly whats in it and avoid chemicals like preservatives.
The group decided to make sweet potato chips instead of regular chips. This is because we discussed the nutritional value of sweet potato chips and found that they are much better for us than normal potato chips.

Making the sweet potato chips proved quite difficult as sweet potato is such a hard vegetable.
