Many of our history lessons end with craft projects or recipes to try that somehow reflect what we have learned that week. This week Avery read to me out of the Story of the World all about the Phonecians...or as she said it "the Phocans"...she was having some trouble sounding it out and then the name kind of stuck. The recipe for this lesson was to make the bread of that people. Phocan bread! Or as we all know it, pita bread.
You can get the recipe on this blog. This recipe was so good...full of potato, carrot, cabbage and onion. The turmeric is what makes the nice bright yellow color. Avery cleaned her plate, and Mitch got so close. Leftovers were even better the second time around.
