    Things are changing at Creekview!


     Creekview offers Principles of Hospitality and Tourism for high school credit.  It will be one of the first classes that you can take in a coherent sequence of courses to get in the HCTC.  It will be more challenging in order to prepare you for high school.   I am delighted to be able to help you out with credits for high school.  We will still have a sewing project and I will keep the Baby Think It Over in Principles of Human Services.

    The second six weeks is under way.  We have learn about career selections in the Hospitality and Tourism Industry.  Managing our lives will be next on the agenda.  Time management is something we can all work on.  We will be learning about the organization of the lodging industry.  Next six weeks we will become a travel agent and plan a trip using all we have learned about tourism.  Our family will be our next focus Principles of Human Service.  We will discover new ways to get along with family members and others in our environment.  This will lead to having great people skills for the world of work.
    This six weeks we will be working on a community service project-- Keep Someone Warm!  We will be collecting blankets to help the Presbyterian Night Shelter.  Our donations will be taken to Sleep Experts. 
     
    Cooking is so much fun!! We have made some great food.  You should try our Crepes or our tortilla bowls. I will attach a few of our chefs favorite recipes. 

    Crepes

    2 cups milk

    1 cup flour

    3 eggs

    1 TBSP sugar

    1 tsp. vanilla extract

    ¼ cup melted butter

    1.     Combine all ingredients in a mixer or blender and blend until smooth.

    2.    In a medium–size skillet over medium-low heat, melt ½ tsp butter: ladle in ¼ cup crepe batter.  Swirl the skillet until you have a thin layer of batter covering the entire bottom.

    3.    Cook until the underside is golden brown, about 2 minutes: flip.  Cook until the other side is golden brown, about 1 minute.

    4.    Add a filling, if desired, right after flipping. Place ingredients down the center of the crepe so you can fold in the sides like an envelope  If you aren’t using a filling, cook all the crepes, then put them on a plate in the middle of the table alongside bowls of fillings

    5.    Dust with confectioners’ sugar before serving.
