Food Fun! Fleece Fun!

 A favorite 4-H activity is cooking! Especially if the food is yummy! The internet and Pinterest are great sources for unique recipes.

These Clover Gals made Gooey S'More Cookies!
The recipe came from It is a pretty sweet cookie and uses the new mini marshmellow bits by Kraft.
When the girls cook, they learn how to measure flour "the 4-H way" by spooning it into the measuring cup and then leveling it with a straight edge. They also learn to crack eggs by holding it in their hand, hitting it with the edge of a butter knife, and then putting it into a small bowl to check for shells and whether or not the egg is good. These are things the 4-H Judges look for when the gals do cooking contests...and how well they clean up their messes!

These cookies were pretty yummy!

The gals have come up with some fun ideas for this year's club meetings. Themes! This week it was "Dress Like a Boy". Upcoming themes will include Halloween costumes, Picture Day, Crazy Hair Day, and other "crazy" things. Gives a whole new meaning to our club name!

Still working on those fleece tied pillows! Clover Gal is stuffing her candy corn pillow! They learn to put small handfuls in at a time so they don't end up with a lumpy pillow, and to get it into all the edges and corners.

Next week...the finished pillows!
