Boston Baked Dinner

Boston Dinner Menu:

Green Beans with a hint of butter

Boston Brown Bread

 This bread was interesting to make, using an old type of Native American technique by steaming it in a coffee can.   I should have followed the instructions and fastened the aluminum foil on top using string instead of a rubber band as it smelled like burning tires in our kitchen for quite some time. Fortunately, it didn’t affect the taste of our dinner.

My sweet friend, Amanda, had given me this coffee can awhile back and, as she now lives on the other side of the world, it made me think of her. Miss you, friend!

so fun!


Brian read “The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere”, which I still had from teaching fifth grade years ago and we all enjoyed the story/poem along with our scrumptuous dinner.

For dessert, we made some chocolate chip cookies as they originated in Boston.  I didn’t take a picture of our finished product, but this recipe was most delicious!

Thus concludes our week in Boston.  Along with our tea party and day of geography we also did a little bit of currency designing

This site also had some additional resources we used for coloring and word games.

Thank you, Boston!
