What Are You Doing This Weekend?

How about spending some time cooking with your family and submitting a recipe to the Rosedale Heights P.S. Community Cookbook?

Rosedale Heights P.S. serves families from diverse backgrounds hailing from many countries around the world, and delicious food and flavours abound in our community members’ kitchens!  Do you have a favourite ‘go to’ dish for dinner?  Perhaps a fantastic side dish?  Or maybe a much-loved homemade dessert your family is sweet on?  What are you feeding your children every single day of the week (and on the weekends too?!)

We are inviting all members of the Rosedale Heights P.S. community to share a recipe close to their hearts with others in the community.  We are inviting submissions for appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, side dishes, baked goods and desserts.  A dedicated team of our School Council members will be compiling these recipes into a community cookbook we hope to have available to order in the Spring.  So dig into your family recipe collections, put on your aprons and participate in our community endeavor by submitting your favourite recipe to us at https://bit.ly/RHPSCookbook.  We’d ask that families submit only one recipe, so be sure to choose something special!

Submissions should include the name of the contributor and contributing family, recipe title, ingredients list, and step by step cooking instructions.  But most of all, this is a community cookbook, so the submission should include you and your family.  We’d ask that you include a few sentences about why the recipe might be meaningful to your family, and perhaps even whose favourite dish it is.  As well, we’d ask that you submit any high resolution photos of the preparation of this dish, the finished product, or your family enjoying it.  (Pictures of students are especially welcome!) We will be accepting recipes through Friday, December 1st.  Simply go to https://bit.ly/RHPSCookbook to submit your recipe and email any accompanying photos to cookbook@rosedaleheightsps.com

Once submissions are collected, the Community Cookbook Committee will be collating them and laying them out into an easy-to follow cookbook that you’ll be able to order and keep with you as a wonderful reference for many years to come.  Let’s capture the collective spirit of warmth in our Rosedale Heights P.S. community by ‘inviting’ one another into our respective kitchens and share the best of our culinary efforts.  And don’t forget to involve your children in these gastronomic adventures! 

Let’s get cooking!
