A Lovely Heritage

J has been working on a heritage project at school. It was a fun opportunity for her to learn about some of our ancestors.

where they came from...

when they came to America...

and what one of their traditional meals were.

She had such a great time calling her Granny to ask for all the information she needed. The culmination of the project is a Heritage Feast at school. The parents come and everyone brings a dish from the country they did their report on.

J did her report on Yugoslavia and her dish is mostaccoli, which is a pasta with meat sauce.



Doesn't she look very prepared? Here is the lovely part...

I have never made mostaccoli, and don't have any plans to.

Luckily for J she has a fabulous Grandpa who also happens to be a wonderful cook. So these two spent some time together cookin up a storm.
I don't think it could get much sweeter than that. And it's safe to assume everyone will enjoy the meal at school. I'm not sure I could have guaranteed that if I had cooked it.

Today we had an experience with heritage as well. My kids are starting to learn Silent night in Spanish for our Christmas party themed: Christmas around the world. Gave an opportunity to my kids to sing something they already knew, help their little friends with the song and talk about their Colombian heritage. It makes me proud!
