Tasty Tagliatelle… NOT from the shop!…Homemade in Room 18

Welcome to our blog this week.

Today we met to prepare fresh pasta and to play UNO.

See how we got on.

To make the dough you need: 3 eggs, 2 cups of plain flour, a pinch of salt and a tablespoon of cooking oil. Mrs Macnamara made the dough earlier and showed us the photos!


We flattened and stretched the dough by turning it through the roller machine. Then we attached the cutting rollers and rolled it through again and it came out in thin strips. It was fun to do!


Mrs. Clancy helped us cook the fresh pasta. While it was cooking we played a game of UNO. It’s a great card game. We have to get rid of our cards and say UNO when we have just one card left. Pádraig was first get rid of all his cards! 🙂 When play stops the rest of us add up our card numbers! Maths is everywhere! It is in the cooking and the card games!


Serve with cheese and tomato sauce and eat with friends! Bon appetite!

The Friday Group makes Fruit Smoothies! Try these at home! Delicious!

We followed the recipe in LET’S COOK!

ISBN 978-1-4075-0482-7

For the Berry Smoothie we need:

  • 1 banana
  • Fresh raspberries and strawberries
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Milk

For the Yoghurt Smoothie we need:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 pear
  • Apple juice
  • Natural yoghurt
  • Runny honey

We started by chopping the fruits.

Next, we prepared two jugs: one with milk and vanilla and the other with yoghurt, apple juice and runny honey. Then we put the fruits into the two jugs. We took turns doing the jobs.

With the help of the adults we set up the BLENDER. It was really loud and we watched all the ingredients whiz and swirl together.


We tasted both smoothies. The milk smoothie was very smooth…. and the yoghurt smoohtie was really tangy!

We all picked our favourite. Then some of us mixed them together!

It doesn’t have to be summer to enjoy smoothies with friends! Friday was a really wet day! We had all been out to the new all weather pitch in the rain! Bishop Denis blessed and opened the pitch.

Cheers! We are celebrating in Room 18!

Try these yummie smoothies at home.
